What services does filezilla use?

can you use just ftp://ipaddress to see if you can at least connect?

I have all my services under the external zone.

Also, are you using apparmour? That may be an issue.

Is there anything in your ftp server log file saying a connection is
even being tried?

Thanks, yes, I verified that I can connect, so the problem is on my side, not the server side.

Is it safe to allow all my services under the external zone? I thought about doing that but I assumed that would open my pc to all kinds of probing robots on the internet.

Where is the ftp server log file? Do you mean on the ftp server? I know that it is trying to connect, because I get connection, but it won't read the file list. Will the ftp server log file give me some extra information?

I also spent some time with the tech support of my hosting company and they could not reproduce the problem on their end.
