Filezilla client shows empty directory listing on remote site

I am using Filezilla 0.9.27 beta as my server and having read some similar threads I have just downgraded my client to Filezilla from Filezilla - but the problem remains.

On the remote (server) site I have a Draytek router forwarding port 21 to my FTP server. When I connect from the local (client) site - the connection is initiated correctly and it says that I am connected, but in the pane on the right (remote site files) is showing <directory listing empty>. I have tried to log in fromt he local site using an IE browser window and it is also showing as empty.

To rule out port forwarding I have started Filezilla Client on my remote server and tried to connect to the local IP address - it connects and authenticates perfectly - but the "Remote" site listing is also empty!

Please can anyone give me any pointers?

I have managed to get to the bottom of it - having read a few more posts, I got onto the subject of securities. The folder which was being made available via FTP was on a NAS box and I was linking to a mapped drive. I changed this and linked to the location via the "Network" icon when identifying the home directory on Filezilla server and it started to work perfectly.

Sorry to waste anyones time!
