Basic and anonymous is enabled. We have no problem connecting to the host. Thanks to Brent Catlett, this afternoon I learned that you can now insert images into your Google Forms.

I am also able to connect to ftp via localhost from the command line. I am then able to use other commands dir. I get ftp connection closed by remote host.
