I am using fedora core 3. From server setting I restarted the services of ftp(gssftp, tfftp, vsftpd, xinetd). From windows cmd I tried to connect to linux machine which shows following error. Firewall on both the machines (windows and fedora) are off.

Fedora Core 3 is so far past End Of Life that I can't even see it in the rear-view mirror. Unless there's a hardware issue, I'd recommend upgrading to a more recent version.

However, it looks like you're connecting, just not providing a valid login.

The root user is prohibited from remote logins by default for security reasons. There is no "redhat" user ID unless you create one.

You can probably log in anonymously (assuming anonymous FTP is enabled). Use userid "ftp" and any email address as a password.

You also should try using a regular account user ID and password. I hope you're not running as root all the time.
