Default PROBLEM: cannot reach FTP server via explorer

Hello, it's the first time I'm working with server configuration, I followed this tutorial http://www.howtoforge.com/vsftpd_mysql_debian_etch.

I finished installing my server, I checked everything and seems like there wasn't any mistakes, but when I try to connect to ftp via explorer, it can not connet to server.

It writes: "Windows can not acces this folder. Make sure that you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to acces this folder. Details: A connection with server can not be estableshed."

My configuration file is exactly the same like in that tutorial. This problem appears only when vsftpd.conf command anonymous_enable is set to NO.

Do you have any ideas what could be wrong and what should I check??

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

Can you post the outputs of
netstat -tap
iptables -L
when this problem occurs?
