Well, if you want people to help you then first you need to help them. I can't read your mind and (always) understand your problem.

First, how do you connect to the internet? Do you have regular ol' dialup (I bet you don't!) Do you have cable or DSL where you plug your network card into a DSL modem? Are you on a home network all connected to the internet through a router or firewall? These are very important questions in helping me diagnose your problem.

Firewall?
Double posting doesn't help, either...

I have a file called /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf that I've edited to change the behavior of the server. That's where you should look.

You might need to open up port 20, as well. The connection is established over port 21, the data goes over port 20 (unless you're using passive ftp).
