Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When posting a question like this, it's useful if you provide info on how you installed proFTP (RPM v. compiled yourself) and what your distro is, etc.
What syntax are you using to start proFTP?
Are your other server services working like www or mail? The /etc/proftpd.conf file doesn't have any settings regarding hostname or IP address. I suspect this problem is related to your eth0 address & how your computer is configured to communicate on your network. Unfortunately, you didn't provide any information about the rest of your environment, so I can't really suggest anything.
Honestly i dont know, I am a newb when it comes to linux, however not general computer opperation so yes i have Shell access. If you have AIM or some other real-time chat program i would not be averse to giving you the Shell access or even a generous pelf if you walk me through it, i am a programer so im a quick learner ^_^
Telnet into your own box. If you don't have telnet running, try SSH. I'm trying to recommend tests that will verify that daemons are able to bind to ports. If you've got ssh installed, check that it's running with this:
ohh man, i just finally got Proftpd running on mandrake, it was about 6 days of frustration..
i installed proftpd as a RPM. you already know where the config file is. to start proftpd you cant go wrong by opening up a terminal and do a 'cd /etc/rc.d/init.d/' then to start use ./proftpd start and ./proftpd stop to quit.. its also not a bad idea to change mode your directories for the ftp root. cdmod 775 'ftpdirectory' should do. if you need a good config file to start off with theres tons on the internet. theres also some starters in i beleive /usr/docs or somewhere around there.
as for the apache, i havent messed with that so if your having trouble with the two softwares working together im of no help.
i know how frusturating this can be, lol, feel free to AIM me at VidFromDiaspora
