Normally I would have said the server was at fault, but if it's working with another system then it's clearly not the case. Try stuff like restarting the system and/or stopping the ftp connection and then restarting it.

If these suggestions don't work then please reply to this post.

I should point out that there are alternatives to the Command Prompt in Windows. If you are a UNIX fan, you should definitely try Cygwin - I use this instead of the command prompt now as it has a much wider range of features (well, it is an implementation of Red Hat Linux. You'll get things like sftp). There's also MSH - the Microsoft Shell, otherwise known as 'Monad'. It's in beta, but is better than the existing command prompt.
