This is not a useful problem description. It
does not say what you did, and it does not
say what happened when you did it. First:

uname -a

Then, it's usually helpful to show your
actual commands and their actual output.

> [...] i checked in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers

And learned what, exactly?

> [...] how to do it

man ftpd
man inetd

Re: enabling port for ftp

hi,

this are the ports that you are need to access when you connect to the FTP:

http://docs.hp.com/en/B9901-90042/ch11s03.html

check inetd.conf for ftpd entry and also ined.sec file.
