    Windows 7 FTP server setup with basic authentication and running.

    Chrome connects to on FTP server PC.
    Other PCs on local network won't connect via Chrome to
    Outside won't connect to ftp://(whatismyipaddress.com)

    Router firewall turned off.
    Router port 21 forwarded to
    Router Internet Filter turned off.
    Windows PC firewall turned off.
    Shared the FTP file with 'everyone'.

    Internet Explorer troubleshooting says:
    Windows confirmed that "" is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.
    This usually means that a firewall is running somewhere between the two computers and is blocking "FTP service". Windows has confirmed that Windows Firewall on this computer is correctly configured to allow this connection. However, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.
    If you have access to this firewall then configure the firewall to allow connections through TCP port 21. If you don't have access, contact your network administrator or Internet service provider.
