Try stopping the inetd server (net stop inetd) then run inetd -d from 
the command line. In another window attempt a telnet to your machine. 
Watch to see if you get any messages in the window running inetd. You 
should. If that works try your ftp command.

I suspect that inetd is not running as a service. Do you have two (yes 
two, count 'em) inetd processes showing up in the TaskMgr?

Have you added Cygwin's bin to the Windows SYSTEM Environment Variable 
PATH? Have you rebooted?
