Server address is the IP of the server you're trying to connect to - 127.0.0.1 is your own local address.

Just to be sure - you are connecting from your local pc to a remote server - yes?

GaryCommented:
So the IP you have entered in FZ is not the local address e.g. 192.168.xxx.xxx
Make sure port 21 is open for TCP In/Out on the server/router.
Is the server's IP even accessible outside of the network? i.e. can you ping the address?

You don't need to open the port on your own router

yes the ip its not the local address

how do i make sure that port 21 is open on the server? i am success to connect from filezila client outside the network to the device i want which is local ip 192.168.1.87 in the router when i am changing in the router to the local ip of the server 192.168.1.131 the FZ client is failed on user/password

do i have to define user before FZ server is connected? do i have to define port 21 not just in the router and also on the server? if yes where?

GaryCommented:
Yes you need to add a FTP user to the FTP Server to allow you to connect.

I'm confused -
Can you connect to the local ip of the server or to the actual ip address?

but to set ftp user before connecting/running to FZ server? where do i define FTP user on the server (its server windows 2000)

"I'm confused -

when i am connecting with FZ CLIENT to actual IP its success to connect for a second, but FZ server is not running, it could be?
