let's then first make sure that this is your firewall that is bugging us.
this means, you should stop iptables and try then. if you have redhat, try
service iptables stop
if you have some other distro, try
/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop
and then try sending a file.
it may also be your ISP who is blocking the connection. in estonia, it's very common, one of the two leading ISPs offers an ADSL with all ports closed, except 113.
