I checked with our IT guys and they tell me the server is not down and that this is not one of our servers.
We are still unable to get onto the site, are you able to look into this further for us.

i'm still not able to reach the machine, are you sure it is running?
[simon@zeus:~] ping 184.108.40.206 PING 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C --- 22.214.171.124 ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 3007ms [simon@zeus:~] ftp 126.96.36.199 ftp: connect: Connection timed out
Maybe it is protected with a Firewall?

I had a similar problem when I entered my domain and Filezilla reported
Status: Resolving address of eur1mxl.com Status: Connecting to 188.8.131.52:21... Status: Connection attempt failed with "ETIMEDOUT - Connection attempt timed out", trying next address.
I use Linux Mint 9 and when I tried FTP in a terminal window I got a connection and was able to transfer files.
Using the Administration->Network Tools->Lookup (tab) and entered the domain the IP address returned was 82.165...... When I used this IP address as the host in Filezilla it worked.
I do not know what Filezilla was using to resolve the domain name but it came back with the wrong address.
If using Windows the IP address can be checked by opening a Command Prompt window and PING DOMAIN_NAME eg
and the target IP address will be shown.
Hope this helps and note that all numbers and domains have been change to protect the ...

The original op asked for a server at 184.108.40.206:21. The server does not seem to be available; I cannot reach it (via ping or FTP).
And for the error messages as is: It might be possible that the given domain name resolves to more than one IP address and that FileZilla tries the next IP address if the one it tried does not work (just a guess).
But as no logs are given, we will never know.
please contact the server administrator, the server seems to be down:
