We were using Filezilla Server for the last few years as our FTP Server and immediately after switching in to Windows 2008, FTP clients while connecting get this error

425 Can’t open data connection.Failed to retrieve directory listing

This is why Server is denying connections from client, this can be solved using following steps

1. FileZilla Server Interface >> Passive mode Settings
