You need to install and configure VSFTPD from the shell as well.

Install FTP Server:
sudo yum install vsftpd

Install FTP Client:
sudo yum install ftp

Open in new window

This post takes you through the steps of further changing the configuration and security by editing vsftpd.conf - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-vsftpd-on-centos-6--2
