Make sure you're connecting to port 21 as a TLS request requires an SSL certificate to be installed for the FTP service which it isn't for your server, the different is port 21 runs on a standard socket whereas port 22 which is what I assume you're attempting to connect to runs through an encrypted connection.
Hope that helps.

Which version of Filezilla are you running? I recently had problems connecting to some of my (non wordpress) sites after an upgrade to version 10. Once I'd downgraded it was fine again. :-)
I had the same issue trying to connect to my Godaddy server for my wordpress sites a month or so ago.
After calling Godaddy, they recommended version 22.214.171.124.
A quick Google Search "filezilla mac 126.96.36.199" bring multiple results!

Another area to check would be firewall exceptions.
I recommend upgrading to 10.7 or higher.
My lady upgraded and there really isn't much difference.
