    To me, that immediately spells a problem with the data connection. ftp
    works by establishing two connections - regular ftp protocol on port 21
    and ftp data on port 20. The data connection is only established when
    needed - when downloading or uploading a file, or when retrieving a
    directory listing.

    Sounds like you might need to read up on active vs passive ftp
    connections. You'll probably need to turn on passive ftp so the data
    connection can be established through your various network interfaces.

    Thanks for your help. Turns out I had not opened enough ports on the
    server's router -- missed 20 and some higher ranges for the PASV
    connections. Once done, that solved the problem -- for now.
