You have to put an entry into the file /etc/hosts.allow which is read
by the tcpwrapper tcpd. If you want to connect from a specific IP,
insert a line like
wu.ftpd: your.ip.goes.here hostname.domain

If you need a range of hosts, you can write
wu.ftpd: 1.2.3.
or
wu.ftpd: .domain

If you want to allow everybody to connect its
wu.ftpd: ALL

Read the man pages to learn more about the syntax of this file:
man hosts.allow

To your second question:
You can list all packages installed on your system with
"rpm -qa"

HTH,
Armin
