According to the admin of the webserver, I should be able to use Filezilla to transfer files to the server but I am getting an error.

First: I'm able to connect to the remote server using X-Win32 ssh, from my Windows 7 machine:

SunOS server.edu 5.10 Generic_120011-14 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise-T5220
System type is SUN4V with 65408 MB of memory.

server.edu(1): 

Next, I set up Filezilla for transfering files sftp - using these directions I found on the web.

However, this is what I get:

Status:    Connecting to server.edu:12345...
Response:    fzSftp started
Command:    open "gmcnulty@server.edu" 12345
Error:    Connection timed out
Error:    Could not connect to server
Status:    Waiting to retry...
Status:    Connecting to server.edu:12345...
Response:    fzSftp started
Command:    open "gmcnulty@server.edu" 12345
Error:    Connection timed out
Error:    Could not connect to server

Any point in the right direction would be very helpful.

that was it, needed to be port 22! Thanks, please put that as an answer so I can accept. –  Greg McNulty May 28 '12 at 2:43

IF you're using SSH, verify it's port 22, not "12345" and that the ports are open from the WAN? (If it is actually port 12345, make sure that it's open).
