Try going to terminal and log in as root

then go to the network>server tasks.

if ftp (wu-ftp) is there you should be good.

just go to a web browser and type your ip or Computer name if you have bind dns running like this


if you still cant hit it try this


and type your password when prompted.

Hope that helped, from one fairly newbie to another.

If i underrstood well you have a linux system and other windows ones on the LAN and you want thme to access each other's files? In that case maybe you should setup samba on the linux box which will act as a windows file server, and you will be able to access linux system's files through shares on the windows computer, kind of like a NFS drive. There are some good tutorials on the net about samba.
