    Hi, I get this "Operation Timed Out" message when I try to access a Linux FTP Server. I have the correct username and password but it just doesn't connect me. I tried to ping it but it gives "Request Time Out" as well. Can anybody tell me what is wrong?

    Sounds like the FTP server you are trying to access is not running. Another possibility if you can't ping the server at all is that the server itself is offline or perhaps you are being blocked off via the server's firewall.

    Really hard to tell with just the info you provided. More info may get you a more useful response.

    What are the outputs of
    netstat -tap
    iptables -L
    ? Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?
