ftp client hanging

Asked by raavi

Hi all!
Using ubuntu 11.10 with ftp client installed.
# dpkg -l | grep ftp
ii ftp 0.17-25 classical file transfer client

I can log in to an ftp server, but when i type "ls" it just hangs.
Same when i try to download or upload something.

230 User XY logged in
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> cd /
250 CWD command successful
ftp> cd /projects
250 CWD command successful
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful <------ hanging here...

It works from different host.

Can you help me where to start debug this symptom?
