simple, as you probably noticed when you try to log in from internet explorer you get an error sying that anonymous users cant log in. What you have to do is present a username when you make a request to connect, and you can do this by typing it into the command line. when you log into ftp in a browser window (IE, NETSCAPE, ETC) you usually type ftp://[ipaddress]/ like in your case, BUT when yopu do that msie assmes your an anonymos user. really there are many fields you dont see (ftp://[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD]@[IP ADDRESS]:[PORT]) since your using the regular ftp port you can omit that like below.

ftp://xbox:[password]@ (thats a colon between username [on evox its always xbox] and password [which you set]). Remember NOT to put your password in brackets
