wu-ftpd in RHL 7.2 is an xinetd controlled service. to have it working, you need to:
1. enable it in the wu-ftpd file under /etc/xinetd.d/ or via chkconfig command (as root):
/sbin/chkconfig wu-ftpd on
2. restart xinetd:
/sbin/service xinetd restart
via chkconfig - the xinetd service is automatically started. now, if u are monitorin the ftp daemon, u would only see it when there is an ftp connection.
