I know that mac's have trouble with FTP...or something along those lines. but i just dont get how i can connect to my ftp server on a pc really easily, but wont connect on my mac.
I've used cyberduck, transmit and a bunch of other apps, and when i try to connect, it says that i have logged in successfully and that its Listing Directory. but then i get a "network error: connection failed" "operation timed out" - sometimes the error tells me to use passive mode, but it still wont fully connect.
i am trying this through a wireless network. linksys router. I have forwarded ports 20 and 21. and its still not working.

Which machine is the ftp server? What ftp daemon are you running? What are your firewall settings? Are there settings for the ftp daemon that permit/deny access by account type?
Which machine is the ftp client? While it looked as if it was the Mac, given you're running Cyberduck, I'll allow the possibility the client is the PC. What are your firewall settings?
Is the "client" trying to run annonymous ftp, or is it to an account?
Hope these questions (and your answers) will be helpful!

Try either turning OFF or ON Passive Transfers. There are NO issues with OSX and FTP. None at all....Dennis

Can you ping the ftp server? (In utilities, open Terminal. Type in: ping -c 4 ftp.yourftpserver.com)
Can you access the ftp using Safari or Firefox? ftp://username:email@example.comMac, MB, MB Air, nano
