Re: [gftp] gftp won't connect with cox.net

I had a similar problem the other day, I have recently setup a dedicated 
server for my sites and I had problems with similar error messages as you 
have stated, so I emailed support and they fixed it and just told me it was a 
'FIREWALL' issue.  They did nt say anything more.

Link to info on active and passive modes.

Hope this helps...
