i havae got a ubuntu machine .I typed in ftp in the command and it comes as

ftp>

then it ask for connection .I googled it and found that i have to give an address for it.
Under one forum i found that the address lies in the /etc/hosts file .My file is

111.92.1.214	midhun-Inspiron-1525	# Added by NetworkManager
127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain	localhost
::1	midhun-Inspiron-1525	localhost6.localdomain6	localhost6
127.0.1.1	midhun-Inspiron-1525

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

from this can anyone tell me the address i have to type so as to make an ftp connection with my system .I am not able to identify the address ..Thanx in advance

try
ftp 111.92.1.214
but the question is do you have an ftp server running to allow the connection. Try this from the command line:

ps aux | grep ftp

this will show you any processes with ftp in the name that are running. You may need to install an ftp server (like vsftp) with apt-get.
