Don't know IU.  Is that a university?

If you have configured the FTP service on your WinXP Pro machine, what you have done is made it so your PC can act as an FTP server.  You actually should disable that, because it is an unnecessary service that can serve as a potential entry-point for hackers and virii.

If you want to connect to other FTP servers and download/upload files, you either need an FTP *client* or use the FTP command-line program that comes with Windows.  Examples of FTP clients are bulletproof FTP and CuteFTP.

Not knowing how IU's dialup access is configured, I couldn't help you there.  Assuming that it is a university, you should contact your student support center or whatever they call it at that particular institution, and ask them how to set up your computer to get access.
