This question has been asked before, but proposed solutions aren't working. I have Linux kernel 18.104.22.168-smp, Slackware release 12. I am trying to ftp to this computer. I get "connection refused". I have ALL:ALL in my hosts allow, I have uncommented the line: ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd proftpd, in my inetd.conf file. the /usr/sbin/tcpd file exists. I have no firewall running.
