    This could well be a firewall blocking the connection.
    If you have access to the fire wall you should be able to open port 21.

    Clear your firewall and it will probably work. You have to open up all your UDP ports or use active mode.

    I dont have any firewalls installed on my pc. I am directly connected to the broadband modem. I am not connected any network. I will try using different broadband connection. Can anyone please confirm the filezilla login details.

    The key is active or port mode, instead of default passive (pasv) mode which you are using. And the recent AMIs use "wowza" username and instanceID as the password.
