lack of knowledge is not necessarily a problem...it's an opportunity to
learn. Only if you don't want to learn, is it a problem.

I am sure that i suggested that you check to make sure that your
computer is 'listening' to ports 21 & 23 (ftp & telnet respectively)

netstat -an|grep LISTEN

if your computer isn't 'listening' nothing else matters. Both would
normally be started/managed by xinetd.

chkconfig --list telnet
chkconfig --list wu-ftpd

and as was suggested - if either or both are 'off' - turn them on

chkconfig telnetd on
chkconfig wu-ftpd on

and then of course...


man hosts.allow
