Are the other redhat/unix machines on the same subnet as the Redhat PC? If this is true, is the windows machine on the same subnet? Have you disallowed any addresses, or even played with your security settings? A bit more info would be helpful.

check out the settings in: /etc/xinet.d/wu-ftped
Mine looks like bellow, only allow connection from IP address, you can trust the whole local net if you wish, just modify so it look something like this "only_from ="
If you still get connection refused, then edit your /etc/hosts file and put your Windoze machine's IP address there, because that's likely the ftp server unable to resolve the incoming ip, this is common if you are on private IPs.
service ftp
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.ftpd
server_args = -l -a
log_on_success += DURATION USERID
nice = 10
only_from =
