Windows Firewall doesn't play well with FTP. I bet you're running Windows
Firewall on the problem PC but not on the work PC. You can temporarily
disable the firewall, or you can do something like this:

Caveats: I haven't tested this particular procedure. There are other things
that can cause the same symptoms, most of which require server-side
adjustments.

Techwr-l relevance: When someone says, "Just tell the user to download the
update from our FTP site," think twice.
