last ditch attempt on my part....why dont you use a port other than 21 for your ftp server.....you have something like 65000 to chose from

port 21(or whichever you choose) is used for remote commands only i believe ....actual uploads and downloads will use another port altogether

if i'm wrong feel free to correct me!!

port 21 is only a problem if you allow anonymous access to the FTP as there are alot of ppl looking for this access to use your FTP to store pirated files

never allow anon. access to your personal FTP.....

Thanks to everyone for there replys and help
after switching off FTP and resetting
Port 21 works BUT I am not able to connect to it SOOO

I changed to Port 22, that worked BUUUT After connect
the result error message came back as

Failed to connect socket

So the best way I can figure is to put the boot drive for my FTP is Win98se

and try that

So thanks again everyone

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
