FTP Connection Issues

I'm running suse 8.0 and trying to ftp into my machine. I try to ftp localhost and get the following:

/etc> ftp localhost
Trying ::1...
ftp: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Connected to localhost.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.

Seems like it connects at first then drops it. I am thinking it is a user authorization issue, but not sure which files to alter specifically. Nmap of the ports shows that 21 is open. Any ideas?? Thanks!

What interface shows port 21 open? try 'ftp', then try 'ftp <eth interface ip>'. See what results you get from that.

What ftp server program are you using? The config should be in /etc... If it's ProFTPD for instance, your config will probably be /etc/proftpd.conf.
