I run pure-ftpd for my FTP server, and it has no problems with IE or
Firefox. Then again, it is not started from 'inetd' so that might
have something to to with it. Since you stated that no web browser can
make a connection, that kind of rules out IE as the culprit.

Do you receive any type of error message? What does it say? I just
tried accessing ftp.stereo.lt, I hope that is your FTP site, and it
asked for log-in credentials.
