it's always the "pc" directory. All other directories work just fine.
I asked the maintainer of the ftp site, he suggested it could be a
problem with your proxy server. If you don't have a proxy server, or
another system using the same proxy works fine, it must be something
else. But what?

control you need to inter-operate with an FTP proxy server when using a
win32 OS on your desktop machine is using a good command line client.
And ncftp is among the better ones.
BTW. At least in the case of my ISP, I stopped having problems with
ftp.vim.org when I disabled passive FTP.
 I have tried all the win32 ftp clients I am aware of, as in: (a) Go to
a tucows mirror. (b) check the FTP clients page. (c) Download, install, try
out, delete one by one. (d) Reinstall windows because 90% percent of the
installers were created by amateurs and trashed the system registry.
