OK-I put in "vsftpd" in terminal-output "500 oops IPv4 and IPv6 running"
I then commented the IPv4 so now it should work-please try again...
bz@bz-desktop:~$ vsftpd
500 OOPS: vsftpd: must be started as root (see run_as_launching_user option)
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo vsftpd
500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv6 socket
bz@bz-desktop:~$

What do I do now?

You need it to bind to IPv4 since its your x.x.x.x ip, IPv6 aint widly supported so you can comment that one out in the config.

OK-what does "bind to IPv4" mean?
Thanks for your help and patience.

Did you checked if verizon allows you to run servers?
Some providers close the lower ports on their network.

To be honest, I don't see the purpose of this DVD.
However, to see if ftp works:
on the server do
Code:
telnet 127.0.0.1 21
If this works, the ftp server is listening.

Then try from another client on your network (if any)
Now, and very important, verify if verizon allows you to run servers.
If yes, try from the outside to connect to the server.
ALso, verify in the router if there is a firewall of any kind, if yes, forward the ports to your server.

OK I restarted it but now getting -
Code:
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo vsftpd
500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd
bz@bz-desktop:~$
What is "inetd"?

Code:

Did a nmap scan on your ip and got the result.

Code:
Starting Nmap 4.62 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2009-03-21 22:49 CET
Interesting ports on pool-71-161-50-175.clppva.btas.verizon.net (71.161.50.175):
Not shown: 1703 closed ports
PORT     STATE    SERVICE
21/tcp   filtered ftp
23/tcp   filtered telnet
80/tcp   filtered http
135/tcp  filtered msrpc
136/tcp  filtered profile
137/tcp  filtered netbios-ns
138/tcp  filtered netbios-dgm
139/tcp  filtered netbios-ssn
445/tcp  filtered microsoft-ds
1667/tcp filtered netview-aix-7
7000/tcp filtered afs3-fileserver
8080/tcp filtered http-proxy

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 118.364 seconds

Code:
filtered
Nmap cannot determine whether the port is open because packet filtering
 prevents its probes from reaching the port. The filtering could be 
from a dedicated firewall device, router rules, or host-based firewall
 software. These ports frustrate attackers because they provide so 
little information. Sometimes they respond with ICMP error messages 
such as type 3 code 13 (destination unreachable: communication 
administratively prohibited), but filters that simply drop probes 
without responding are far more common. This forces Nmap to retry 
several times just in case the probe was dropped due to network 
congestion rather than filtering. This slows down the scan dramatically.

How could I find out if Verizon allows servers?
Verizon is not my IP-Peoplepc is.
Result-
Code:
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo vsftpd
500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd
bz@bz-desktop:~$
What gives??
