Cannot connect to any ftp server

This is an odd issue.  My internet comes into my roommates computer.  He then shares it with my wireless router and I get my internet wirelessly.  I do can everything on the web, check my mail, ssh, etc.  But i can't connect  to any ftp servers.  Mainly ftp.archlinux.org for pacman.  He's not running any firewall on his computer, and the router is not blocking anything either.  Has anyone seen this before.

btw, I also rebooted into windows and had the exact same problem.

Happens all the time.  Try using "passive mode".  Passive mode is setup on your FTP client.  It uses one port for communications -- and plays nice with NAT.  Normal FTP uses a separate port for incoming, which is typically blocked.

HAHAHAHA Score one for linux!

My roommate had the windows messager service still running.  And when he got the spam message pop-ups, it somehow blocked me.  Yet another reason I prefer (arch) linux.
