inetd is a "super-server" on Unix system. It manages Internet services
and in many cases FTP server.


Edit /etc/inetd.conf file, comment lines that enable ftp server and
restart inetd daemon (invoke-rc.d ...), check with netstat -laptn that
no program uses TCP/21, and then start your FTP server.

Another solution is to remove inetd package, if you really don't use it.
