FTP service disables itself

hey everyone,

I'm out here trying to set up a new server for the carrier I am on (USN), but I am having some trouble. Here is my problem:

FTP service disables itself after 1 minute. I put it on auto, then start it... a minute later it disables itself and stops. I have symantec antivirus installed, but I have tried to see if it works with symantec services and program completely off and it still doesn't work.

Am I missing something simple? Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. We need this server so we can read the news more efficiently
