Try switching the Passive property from True to False or vice versa.
Each way works for a subset of the firewall/server configs out there, so
you'll need to make it configurable.

You should also follow Remy's suggestion for the ReadTimeout so it
doesn't hang forever, if it's set the wrong way.

In fact I have the same FTP client running in another in Windows 98 machine uploading files to Unix server and have no problem with it. File transfer to Microsoft server in much larger than Unix server.
