ftp localhost -help needed


I'm following up with the link http://www.nitecon.com/downloads/rh9tut.htm

So far everything has worked to it's satisfaction until I am asked to test the ftp by typing in:
ftp localhost

I receive the following error:

[root@localhost chris]# ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
500 OOPS: could not bind listening socket


Could someone help me resolve this problem? Thanks
