Please be precise or your problem will never be solved. Does it give a
similar response or exactly the same. What does it say?

It doesn't. It was just a friendly hint to give more information.
To be honest: everything you wrote so far does not make sense. Your
"requirement" is to run a FTP server on the Vista box. Do you do that?
Which one? Have you verified it's running? How did you verify that? From
which OS are you trying to connect? With which FTP client? Is UAC
activated on the Vista machine? The firewall? Did you configure
exceptions? (etc., etc., etc.)
