Within a company network and over a proxy script I connect to an external FTP Server using FileZilla. This works fine from the personal company laptop but not from the company server.

FileZilla reports on the server:

Status: Connecting to mpg-ftp.ch through FTP proxy
Status: Resolving address of [proxy script]
Status: Connecting to [ip-address:port]...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Insecure server, it does not support FTP over TLS.
Command: USER [username]
Response: 331 Password required
Command: PASS ********************
Response: 559 ftp://[host] Not allowed to browse Miscellaneous or Unknown category, (company: [companyname], 10/29/2020:16:30:49)
Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server

FileZilla reports on the personal company laptop:

Status: Verbinde mit [host] über FTP-Proxy
Status: Auflösen der IP-Adresse für [proxy script]
Status: Verbinde mit [ip-address:port]...
Status: Verbindung hergestellt, warte auf Willkommensnachricht...
Status: Unsicherer Server; er unterstützt kein FTP über TLS.
Status: Angemeldet
Status: Empfange Verzeichnisinhalt...
Status: Anzeigen des Verzeichnisinhalts für "/" abgeschlossen

Of course I double checked that I use the exact same parameters.
Can anyone give my a explanation or hint what could be the problem and how to solve it.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Looks like some company policy preventing access. You need to ask the IT administrator.
