What OS the remote computer run on? Does an FTP service on the remote computer?

Usually Windows PC's FTP service runs @ port: 21. Check out,if the remote computer is protected with some FIREWALL, u will not be able to connect directly using ftp.

ok. I also tried to use ftp to connect another pc on Internet. I was able to connect the pc. But I was not able to login successfully whereas i have used correct username and password which was used by the user @ that time to log in.
