I've used gFTP for years without any problem. Here is the documentation for my
error from /usr/share/doc/

Q: When gFTP tries to get the remote directory listing, I get an error that
says: Cannot create a data connection: Connection refused

A: Go under FTP->Options and turn off passive file transfers. Instead of
sending the PASV command to open up the data connection on the server side,
the data connection will be opened up on the client side, and the PORT
command will be sent to the server instead.

I did that but still no connection. Iglooftp (and cuteftp under windows)
doesn't connect either so it must be something to do with my firewall or
permissions here on the server. Can anyone help me further?

THanks, Steve.
