What kind of FTP server are you running on the windows box and is it setup for port 8021?

It took me awhile to understand the problem.

You are using cuteftp on windows to access the linux ftp server.

But you can not connect to the ftp server locally i.e. on the linux box.

Have you tried:

ftp localhost
