I have installed linux virtual server on one system now i want to transfer file from my system to that virtual server. I have tried with WS_FTP but when i m trying to connect its
displaying...
This could be caused by any of the following reasons:
Your network connection is down.
The host address is incorrect.
The server you are attempting to connect with is not available.

and this is coming for all system not only with that virtual server...
Please suggest some solution....

Welcome to the JavaRanch.
Do you have networking correctly configured (i.e. can you ping the virtual server from your system? Can you ping/ftp/http out from the virtual server?
If you can ftp out from the virtual server it may be possible to ftp a file to a third location from your system and then use FTP to download it onto the virtual server.
Personally, I use a USB flash drive and email between my Xubuntu VM (in VMWare Player) and my WinXP desktop. If one plugs a USB drive into my system, VMware catches it first, unmount it in Xubuntu and it mounts in WinXP and vice-versa. Of course you need physical access to the machine the VM is on.

When you say "virtual server", are you referring to a virtual machine like VMWare or Xen, or do you mean a virtual application server?

The message you're getting is what you'd normally see if you attempted to talk to another machine and the other machine was not accessible, either because there was no network application running at the requested IP address/port or because there was some sort of block between the client and server - most likely a firewall.

Servers in virtual machines are indistinguisable to clients from servers in non-virtual machines as long as the VM host is configured to bridge to the virtual machine's network interfaces. That process is done when the VM is configured at the same time the virtual disk drives and other virtual peripherals are defined.

Sounds like your networking is not configured properly. VMWare has excellent online documentation, a searchable knowledge base and forums with experienced users. I suggest you have a look at those resources to try to get networking fixed.
In the mean time, try using a USB flash drive. It works in VMware Player.
