Is there a way to connect to other computers on my home wifi network via FTP using something such as Filezilla?

Of course, you can access the FTP service running on other computers, either use a client like filezilla or mount remote FTP folders as file system by using curlftpfs, similar to sshfs.

Classic GNOME has a GUI tool does similar thing: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/22518/how-to-mount-a-remote-folder-in-ubuntu/

When I try to connect via FTP I get "connection refused" –  LinuxPCplus Nov 22 '12 at 0:21
    
Is there any firewall (iptables) blocking traffic? Especially on the FTP server side. –  Terry Wang Nov 22 '12 at 9:30
