This is probably a problem with the firewall.  Did you open ports 20
and 21?

And if you are using passive ftp you should open some ports in the high
range, so there is a hole in the firewall for vsftpd to use.  You have
to tell vsftpd to use those ports in the configuration.  I also had to
open the service on my router, but that might not be an issue for you.

If I recall correctly, there is a logging function that can be turned
on and it is really useful for decoding where the problem is and what
it is too.

It's been a few years since I used vsftpd, so this is somewhat hazy.
