nope, but tcp4 && tcp46 are listening on port 22; so I just connected that way.

nothing appears here when I try to connect on port 21 and as said I can 
connect on port 22

Well, I know more than before and I can get sftp access to my fbsd box so 
yes. Now I gather the problem is that the machine isn't listening on port 
21; is that supposed to be controlled by inetd? What do I do now?
