Can't change directory

I can login to my server successfully and get a full directory listing. However, when I try to change directories, it gives me this error:

Disconnected from server
Could not retrieve directory listing
Timeout detected.
PORT command successful
Error listing directory '/public_html'.
Error changing directory to 'public_html'.

I am able to log in and change directories with no problems using FileZilla. I'm using:

WinSCP 4.1.9
Windows XP Pro SP3
It is not blocked by Windows Firewall.

My log is posted below (user/host changed to protect the innocent). Like I said, the initial directory listing works fine, so I'm not sure what's going on. Hoping it's a quick fix because the synchronize feature looks great. Thanks!

Wanted to add that I tried unchecking "Show hidden files" (suggestion from a similar problem) but that didn't fix it. Another suggestion said to try "Passive mode", but that option is grayed out for me.

I would suggest the same. Make sure you select "FTP" protocol, before going to Connection tab.

Strange, I had that set in the saved profile/session, I guess I had to generally set it first. Anyway, that did solve the problem. Thank you for your quick response!
