use nmap

use nmap to find out if the ftp server is running.
there is a gui as well but since you don't need it you can fix that with the configure script at compile time I think... or you can just pass arguments to nmap.

if you only wanted to know if port 21 is open (ftp) you could type
nmap -p21 localhost
