Please do not post in all caps. It is considered yelling. That being said do you have an FTP server running?

Without an FTP server you cannot accept ftp connections. This stems from the fact that whenever anyone tries to ftp into your linux machine, they connect to port 21. An FTP server sits and listens on this port(actually inetd generally does, but you get the drift). With nothing there your going to get a problem connecting.

You should look into downloading an FTP Server(or installing one from whichever distro you used).

If your looking to download, I'd try Proftp, it's much easier to setup(and a HELL of a lot more secure) than wu.ftpd
