    Why i can't get files list when i login by ftp using web browser?
    Login via ftp-client works fine.

    Do you authenticate with username and password when you use your internet browser?

    I think this is because of your firewall. I think the browser doesn't use the correct mode (active vs. passive). But why do you want to use a browser when you have an FTP client?

    Internet Explorer as FTP client rocks, you can use it as local folders.. ftp clients are ugly.. most of them didnt recognize "Desktop/My Document" as root folders...

    As already told by falko, it's most likelly a firewall issue. Ftp is a complex protocol, you should have a look at the ip_conntrack_ftp module.
