I have 2 PCs on a network one Win7 and the other XP I am running Filezilla server on both. Typing ftp 192.168.69 on the win7 machine is detected by Filezilla on the XP PC, but typing ftp on the XP PC causes no response whatever from filezilla on the win7 PC. Moreover Wireshark does not appear to detect any packets arriving on the Win 7 PC. I know the XP PC is working fine as I can sync an app from my iphone on it, but I can get no response from the Win7 PC Can you give me any help on how I can find the problem Thanks Wheelyjon.

Sounds like the windows firewall is in your way. You can add an exception rule or just (temporarily) disable the windows firewall altogether.
