I already checked this. AFAICT I have no FTP server running here. This
may be an issue at the third box, but IIRC I can ftp to every other FTP
server I would like to connect and have a server running at the same box
without problems. Since I can start the service and connect from the
same box were sshd is running I don't know where to look next...
