FTP from SCO UNIX to Windows XP PC

I am trying to start an FTP session from my UNIX PC to a PC running XP.
I aim to run a cron to manipulate remote files on the Windows M/C.

I cannot connect to the Windows M/C when i start rthe FTP session on the UNIX box. I can do it fine the other way round.

I have set entries in /etc/hosts and similar files but no joy. Is it a windows problem? Any ideas?
