    Check your firewall also check your router to see if ports 20 and 21 are forwarded.

    Your console needs to have access to the internet for it to work!

    and change the connection type to passive and transfer to passive.

    I went crazy yesterday trying to make it work, and it would only connect if i had everything on passive on the FTP server in the computer!

    it asks you for an update?

    just try the option under the network, to see if you have internet connection. it wont ask you anything.

    but seems you got it working! cheers!

    Same problem here.

    I run OSX and Trasmit is the only software I have been successful with.
    Filezilla does not work at all.
