ftp error message

I am getting the following errors:

Error: Disconnected from server
Error: Could not retrieve directory listing
Error: Timeout detected!

when i try to log into ftp with any client like " filezilla" BUT i login fine if i use the internet brwoser "ftp://user@x.x.x.x" that works fine.

anybody came across something like that


I am using vsftp 2.0.4 and FC5
