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?

Oh as far as apparmour, I think I am using it. Yast says I have it

Well, I was able to try the FTP add on for firefox and transfer my files using that instead. Don't know why filezilla didn't work, but I don't need it anymore.

I don't need to make a ton of transfers, just every once in a while. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good FTP program? the add on to firefox seems to work ok, but I would like other options.
