Exclamation Setting up an FTP Server???


I was wondering what would be the best package to setup an FTP server. I was playing around with WU-FTPD but i couldnt get it to work.

Does anybody know of the easiet way of implementing FTP for Virtualhosts?

Or Can anybody Point me to some good documentation, i.e. a step by step guide to setting up a FTP Server.

Thanks all

I have always personally liked ncftpd. proftpd is also a popular choice.

thanks but...

Cheers, I went for proftpd as it boasted apache style configuration which is to my liking.

When installed it works okay with the default configuration. My only problem is that i cant get it working for a virtual host.

I subsituted all of the entries in the v-hosts example config file for my server and it goes nowhere.

however it seems quite promising so ill give it a few more hours and if no luck i'll check out ncftp!

Thanks again
