I've forwarded a domain from the htaccess file some time ago. For example, I have www.mywebsite.com and I've forwarded it to www.facebook.com from the htaccess file. Now when I try to connect with FileZilla I receive:

Status: Connecting to 64.202.189.170:21... Error: Connection timed out Error: Could not connect to server

This issue has anything to do with the forwarding on the htaccess file ? Thanks!

htaccess is a per-directory configuration file that Apache reads, Apache is web-server software using the HTTP protocol. HTTP usually operates on port 80.

FileZilla is (primarily at least) a file-transfer client using the FTP protocol. FTP usually operates on port 21.

You may be confusing things (if not please explain further).

Absolutely right. – Ignacio Soler Garcia May 3 '12 at 18:34
    
So if I understand correct the ftp has nothing to do with the htaccess? – Alecs May 3 '12 at 21:37
    
@Alecs: You understand correctly. – RedGrittyBrick May 3 '12 at 21:48
