FTP Problem

By dburress1 ·
I have 4 computers (Win2K Pro OS) that access the internet via a cable router (linksys). Only one machine can properly ftp via command line (ie ftp ftp.microsoft.com). The other three always get "ftp: connect: Connection refused". What's the problem. Is there a configuration issue that I am missing. Thanks in advance for all help provided.

on w2k pro you may compare all your config params by doing an
c>ipconfig /all

also look at

c>ipconfig /? to see all the other tests. let us know what you find and if anything is different

All of the ipconfig stuff has already been tried. Everything on the WAN can be pinged and looks the same from all machines.

or the ftp site in which you are trying to connect to may be refusing multiple connections from a single IP address.

I am only trying ftp connect from one machine at a time. When I do an nslookup to the ftp site from the one working machine, all is well, but from the other machines I get a "can't find server name for address <ip address>: no response from server.default servers are not available" <ip address> being the dns server that I get a response from with a ping -a.

Is this only in Intenet Explorer? or on the command line also? you can test this by typing at a command prompt: ftp SERVERNAME where server name is the dns/ip address of a FTP site. If you get an error on that also check your IP Filtering and your firewall. If you don't get an error on the command line do the following:
In Internet Explorer click on Tools > Internet Optons and click on the Advanced tab. Under browsing make sure that "Enable folder view for FTP sites" is checked.

No firewall or filtering. I have took all of the router stuff out of the picture. I now only one pc connected directly to my cable modem. When I try to ftp to ftp.microsoft.com, I get this:
C>ftp ftp.microsoft.com
> ftp: connect :Connection refused

You must login to the router and allow traffic for ports 20 and 21.

The problem turned out to be zonealarm. Although it is was not started automatically from program files > startup, something from it was still running. After uninstalling, not just merely shutting down zonealarm, all my problems went away.
