using gftp

i am trying to use gftp for uploading a site but with little luck
heres what i have done
host (the web site add.)
port 81
username asdaasd
password ********

when i click the host button on the top left corner i get
"Looking up
Connected to" at the bottom
i do see the local files on the left side but it still shows connecting on the right side where it is supposed to show online files

i tried draging the local files to the other section ( the one which is suppose to show online files) but i get
Drag-N-Drop: Please hit the stop button first to do anything else

then i click the stop button and the it shows
Disconnecting from site

offcourse now when i try drag and drop i get
Drag-N-Drop: Not connected to a remote site

Have you tried adjusting the options? ie. ascii/binary mode, ipv6 enable/disable, ftp/ftps etc...
also, ftp is generally on port 21.
