ftp access problem


I am trying to access the remote redhat linux server from a windows 2000 machine thro ftp, but i am getting the error ie connection timed out. FTP service is running on the server. since ftp is working locally. And also i can able to ping to remote server also. Still i am getting connection timed out error. What could be the reason?

You said remote. Are you behind a firewall? If you are, make sure ftp traffic is allowed. Telnet to Rh Box, and see what services are running (just to be sure!).
