Your answer may lie within the response you are getting from FileZilla.

"Response: 200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV."

Try using a passive connection.  I am not sure if FileZilla has that option,
CuteFTP should.

Do you still get the same results?

Subject: [Centos] ftp ftom outside the local network

I have Centos3.3 installed, vsftpd, apache2, ports 20&21 open on router,
firewall disabled at this time :
/etc/passwd looks like this --- ftpadmin:x:502:502::/var/www:sbin/noligin
uncommented the lines in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf :
I can access ftp from within network no problem, but using external ip it
will validate login but cannot bring up folders
Any suggestions......
