What happens when you use the command line and attempt to connect to the vsftp server? From a terminal, type "ftp <hostname>". What happens?

What do you mean when you say "trying to mount an ftp(with login)"? Can you tell me in more detail what you're trying to do, and with what?

in gnome, i click "Places" and then "Connect to Server" and then "Ftp(with login)" and then i type in server ip and my username to connect. Then when actually go to server it asks for password, i give it it, and then nothing comes up.
