Default FTP very ODD problem (imho)

Okay, so I did that "Perfect Ubuntu (DD) 6.06" setupd, installed proftpd, and installed ispconfig.

At first everything was working fine. I could always and can always login as root via ftp and it works fine. I used ispconfig to create an "administrator" user about a week ago. Initially everything was working fine w/ the ftp.

But it seems that it's gotten worse and worse. I'm using FileZilla and 1/10 times it will actually connect. When it does, fine, but then I try and change directories and it timesout.

The proftpd.log says stuff like:
13:59:35 FTP no transfer timeout, disconnected
13:59:35 FTP session closed.
13:59:35 FTP session opened.
13:59:35 USER jferland: login successful.
20:00:34 FTP session closed.
14:00:35 FTP session opened.
14:00:35 USER jferland timeout, disconnected
14:05:35 FTP session closed.
20:05:35 FTP session opened.

Any help and resolution to the problem would be greatly appreciated, b/c I can't upload anything and it's getting super annoying.

I just wanted to add that I can still upload files with the Web-FTP in ispconfig and that about the only thing I can think of that I've done since it was working great is install some image libraries and some perl modules (Imager, Image::Magick, GD) and install mplayer

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client? To mee it sounds like a firewall problem.

if you have a firewall also open port 20 and turn off passive mode.

This is just bizarre to me, especially since I know so little.

Proftpd started working fine again, then stopped.

So I turned off proftpd and installed vsftpd and ran it. I could connect and upload files with vsftpd! yay!

So vsftpd let me connect and upload once. Then I tried to connect again, wouldn't do it.

Whatever is messing up would appear to be independent of the FTP server used, and seems to be a bigger problem. But I don't get it because I COULD connect at one point, and can (and transfer files) just .. rarely..

I have PC I'm using to try and connect to my (web)server that are both connected to the same router, which is connected to the internet/ cable modem.
