FTP Not Working: Unable to Retrieve File

I am using the hotspot on my phone (LG G2).  From my device (laptop), I have FTP'd to a different IP.  When I try to perform a "get" to retrieve a file, the process hangs for 5 minutes and then fails with:  425 Not able to open data connection.  From what I can tell, the issue appears to be that my device is blocking ports 20 and 21.  I don't see how to do this with my device (G2).  I don't see any configuration options for opening ports.  Normally if this issue had been with a normal router, I would go to and configure the port.  This web address does not work.  Anyone know how to configure ports on the LG G2?
