If one reads the fine print on the top of the form it says:
Connect to an anonymous FTP Server via the Gopher gateway

I don't think there is an anonymous gateway where its pointing.
The gateway is set in conf.h, you could change it to a valid
gateway & recompile if you knew of a valid one (I don't).

The folks at Debian are fixing this stuff up, maybe they have
plans to make ftp work.
