To the OP (sorry, jumping into a lot of threads late); what version of
vsftpd are you using?

A few months back FileZilla released a new version that "broke" TLS/SSL
support with a number of FTP servers.  I ran into the problem with
ProFTPD specifically:

  http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3094

But vsftpd had this issue as well and was patched in v 2.0.7.  I don't
know if this fix was backported by RH or not....

I also don't know if SmartFTP client would exhibit the same problem.
You could try an older version of FileZilla (< 3.1.0) to see if it
works correctly...
