I have not used FreeBSD, so keep an open mind on what I suggest. You may have problems with tcpwrappers. Are there files named hosts.allow and hosts.deny? If so, hosts.deny may contain ALL: ALL. You will need to place the names of services in hosts.allow to poke a hole through tcpwrappers. You can add a line that saids ftp: ALL in hosts.allow. If this still does not work, check the log directory for ftp. You may have to set a directory to 777 (aka read/write/execute to everybody) and change the config file for anonFTP. I suggest to not use inetd to load up FTP when trying to get FTP working. You can use inetd after you have setup FTP, but try to use xinetd. xinetd is a lot better, safer, and easier to work with. You should not use telnet. Use openssh instead.

You could install Samba and then you do not have to use FTP. Samba is easier to setup than FTP. Also it is easier to use with Windows.
