You only installed the latest inetutils package? It could be that you 
didn't install all the packages necessary to run ftp. Setup.exe has 
changed considerably lately, it no longer installs "all" packages by 
default. You must select each package manually to install it. It could 
also be that iu-config sets the default inetd.conf file to disable ftp 
by default (did you run iu-config?). Are you trying to run ftp as a 
service on your machine so you can ftp to your machine, or are you 
trying to ftp out?

Your mouse has moved.
Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now?  [OK]
