Cant connect to proftpd server

I have set up a proftpd server in my linux
I can always access it by that computer through firefox

but if I go outside and use other computer I cant connect to it.

When I connect from outside I have to wait for a long time and then it said connection reset and receive error response. However, sometimes it does work!

can anyone help me ?
