I haven't understood the cause FileZilla can connect and work with a server of mine, whilst SmartFTP can't work at all with the same one.
FileZilla client 188.8.131.52 (x86 release, just updated)
SmartFTP 4.1.1320.0 (x64 release, just updated)
When I connect to my server with FileZilla, this is the log:

With FileZilla I can operate any action, file listing, folder creating, file upload or file download. When I connect with SmartFTP with the same client machine to the same ftp server, here it is the log:

It seems the SmartFTP client and server can't work with the PASV mode.
SmartFTP, on the same machine, can connect and work well with other dozens of FTP servers with same settings. If you need more information about this issue, I could send you by private messaging.
