accessing ftp sites

I have set up a couple of ftp sites but seem unable to access them. When I type ftp localhost and go through username/password I am connected to the default ftp site. But when I type newftpsite, I get the message "unknown host" then the ftp prompt. How do I access other ftp sites on my server/hosts?

localhost is connected to the FTP Default site, but I'm not sure what my other 2 ftp site are connected to so I don't know the names! I have not assigned IP addresses to any ftp site - all are unassigned.

The ftp software is the software that came with Windows 2000 server.

When I assign the IP address of my server, I can connect to the ftp site I created. But If I type in another IP address on the same subnet, it times out. When I ping the address, it also times out. How do I assign the address such that it is "live"?
