What FTP client software are you trying to use on your computer or are you trying FTP access with Internet Explorer?

What is the URL or IP address that you are trying to access with FTP?

Do you get any kind of warnings or error messages saying you can not connect?

You at least need 5 things for FTP to work:

  1. An active, FTP enabled hosting account
  2. An FTP client like Filezilla, SmartFTP, AceFTP, WS_FTP, etc.
  3. Information about FTP server in your hosting account. This could be something like ftp.yoursite.com or may be an IP address.
  4. A username to connect to the FTP server.
  5. A password to connect to the FTP server.

Well, sounds like your firewall to me. Did you mean you can run the ftp software but cannot connect? Or did you use a firewall. There's a plugin for Firefox called FireFTP. It's embedded with Firefox. Make sure you have the rights to the server before attempting any connection to the server.
