Do you want to upload a file to a remote ftp server or run a local ftp server. If you just want to upload a file type

ftp
open ftp.site.whatever
name anonymous
passwd emal address

once logged on use these cmds to move around

pwd
ls
cd

those cmds work like in a normal terminal
once you get to the directory with the file you want to download/upload

put uploads file
get downloads file
quit

dont like commandline ftp install gftp its on the slack cd

check one entry of /etc/inetd.conf and copy/customize for your ftp server in that file.

Are you logged in as root?

Might be a silly question, can you ping the IP address you are trying to connect too?

Regards,
