    have you tried to ftp to the server ? it should be enabled by default.

    You may try

    ftp 0

    from within the server itself

    I dont know what i was thinking!!! i was giving the wrong IP adress and that why i was not able to connect. You are right, FTP is installed by default.

    I think i need a break.
