Hi Expert
I am using FileZillia as FTP server and I installed it in my pc.  I setup username and password in FileZilla, and my pc ip address is 10.1.1.2. after I browser the address with google browser, it prompt username and password. after i typed the username and password. I do not know why it always deny login. I checked username and password several times. It is all correct. Any expert can give me suggestion ?

You should check your FTP server to see whether it uses Active or Passive access. Then the client application needs to be set the same way.

See the following Slacksite link for assistance.

Also, confirm your firewall is configured to allow communications on port 21

Thank you for your fast reply.  The FTP server can work in my another PC. i guess it is firewall problem. but even if i disable the firewall, it still cannot solve the problem. how can i confirm the port 21 is open in my pc ?

The following is log message in FileZilla server:

You can also test connection using command prompt from another computer

ftp 10.1.1.2
you'll be prompted to enter username, then password

That's different from what I asked

Open command prompt

The error returned from the command prompt will guide you as to what the problem is, connection or bad login

I downloaded and configured filezilla server and tested it via command line as I asked you

Filezilla
