ProFTPD time out


I think last time I installed proftpd it worked out of the box. This time I am able to log in to my server from command line on local machine, but when I go to my windows box (using dreamweaver) it say connecting, then waiting for server, then timed out.

Here is log UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "USER mgb" 331 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "PASS (hidden)" 230 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "SYST " 215 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "PWD " 257 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "MKD XYIZNWSK" 550 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "RMD XYIZNWSK" 250 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "MKD XYIZNWSK" 257 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "TYPE A" 200 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:20:32 -0500] "PORT 208,180,124,122,252,0" 200 - UNKNOWN mgb [21/Oct/2003:19:23:41 -0500] "LIST " 425 0

Here is part of proftpd.conf

DefaultChdir /home/mgb
DefaultRoot /home/mgb
RequireValidShell off
ServerName ""
<Directory /home/mgb>
AllowRetrieveRestart on
AllowStoreRestart on
AllowOverwrite on
Group mgb
User mgb
TransferLog /var/log/proftpd/mgb_transfer
ExtendedLog /var/log/proftpd/mgb_error/log
AuthAliasOnly off
Port 21

Any idea what i'm missing?
Where could I find out what these log messages mean?

Any help or direction to read in would be greatly appreciated.
