Tried connecting home on 2 different ftp client software, no luck. I had to set both ftp clients to not use passive connections as I dont have a rooter at home so cant forward the passive ports on a rooter. I'm connected via a 3g connection. I can however connect on the same PC I'm running the server on, on an active connection. Also I can connect via IE/Chrome but I want to use FTPS hence the FTP client software.

If I connect on the PC running the server using the exact same settings for the client software as on my other PC, this is what I get. Success...

Hello,

This looks like a passive mode FTP problem. This should help:

if port forwarding doesn't work, you might also try this:

Worked using the DNS Service. Running Dyn Updater to update my dns host and all is working perfectly now.

Thanks for your help.
