Unable to connect to the remote ftp server

I'm trying to connect to a remote FTP server using the file explorer control. I used the demo WebAPI provided on the how to page. But I keep getting an error message in the form of:

System.Net.WebException, Unable to connect to the remote server

I would like some assistance with this.

Hi Prince, 
 
Good day to you. 
 
We have checked your reported problem at our end. The reported problem may be occurring on not properly specify the path for FTP server. Could you please ensure whether you have properly specified the path & ajaxAction property for File Explorer? 
 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    $(function () { 
        $("#fileExplorer").ejFileExplorer({ 
            //Path of the folder that you want to view in FileExplorer. 
            path: "ftp://193.162.51.33/", 
            //Path of file handling operation method 
            ajaxAction: "http://localhost:51460/FileExplorer/FileOperation/doJSONAction" 
        }); 
    }) 
</script> 
 
Also, could you please ensure whether the FTP server is logged in with proper credentials? 
 
Please let us know, if you need any further assistance on this. 
 
Regards, 
Ashokkumar B.

Hi Ashokkumar.
I checked the path and the ajaxAction property and everything is in order. I tried accessing the FTP server from my regular client (FileZilla) and it works. I have full read and write access but this is what I get when I try to use the file explorer control:

This is the script for the control:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
$("#fileExplorer").ejFileExplorer({
width: "100%",
//Path of the folder that you want to view in FileExplorer.
path: "ftp://192.168.43.246:2121/",
//Path of file handling operation method
ajaxAction: "http://localhost:51460/FileExplorer/FileOperation/doJSONAction",
// resize
enableResize: true,
// responsiveness
isResponsive: true

});
});

</script>

I would really appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Thanks, Prince.
