You get this error only when the other machine is up and running, your
machine manages to reach it, and finds that there is no FTP server on
the other machine waiting for new connections.

The culprit is usually in /etc/inetd.conf, uncomment (i.e. remove the
initial '#' character) the line with 'ftpd' in it. (dunnot if Debian
has a tool to do this?)
