1. You didn't ask an actual question.

2. Are you sure the Linux - Networking forum isn't what you want?

So you miss a "?" ?

I assumed when I said I would need something this is some sort of a question ...

Look, I'm not trying to be picky or something. It's just that all you stated is that you need an FTP server with such-and-such configuration. How can anyone possibly help you unless you post specific questions?

Anyway, I'm sure I'm incompetent to help you install and configure a server, I just thought I would help you post a more specific question that has a better chance of getting answered.

No no, I won't nevermind.

Maybe this will help:
http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/228

The Debian Desktop Survival Guide doesn't make much comment, but they do make a recommendation:
http://www.togaware.com/linux/survivor/FTP_Server.shtml

In the replies section of the first article, I noticed this comment:
Quote:
I'd use vsftp if I needed a FTP server. It's small and simple, a modern design, and built with security in mind. There is a nice package in Debian with all the bits in, and it even does TLS out of the box.

http://vsftpd.beasts.org/

If Debian, OpenBSD et al., use it as their official FTP server, then it's probably good enough for me too.

I find that using proftpd and configuring it with Webmin works great.
