I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and I connect to a Windows Server 2008 IIS FTP server.  This has been working just fine.  All of a sudden I get connection errors.  Other programmers are still working just fine.  I'm using the CFeclipse plugin but I tested FTP in the DOS command prompt.  I can connect just fine and log in as anonymous.  But any other FTP commands (get, put, etc.) just hang.  I'm stumped and need a little help debugging this problem.

I checked the event logs on the server but nothing jumps out at me.  I don't see anything on my Win 7 "windows errors" log but I'm not sure how to run the event viewer.
