Setting up FTP


I'm new to linux and i am running redhat, and i was trying to figure out how to access my comp via ftp. I opened the appropriate port on my firewall, and i found a config file in /etc/vsftpd/ and i started looking through there. my friend said everything should be in order if it was enabled... how might i enable it

thanks for your help

i ran "service vsftpd start"

and then it ran the service. however when i tried to connect to the ftp via IE on my other comp it came up with this error

"An error occured opening that folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission."
