Amtoj, in the future, it's better to just add another post, that way the person asking the question(Agrouf) will get notified that you or someone answered back. So Agrouf, this is to let you know Amtoj answered your question by adding it to his previous post.

Indeed, please do not edit posts after someone has replyed. It will confuse everybody and doesn't notify people about the change.
So, the next question is: do you have an ftp server running and if so, which one?

OK, so the first step is to choose a FTP server to run. there are several ones. The most common ones are vsftpd, proftpd, aftp and several others. I advise you install vsftp
You can install it with yum:
yum install vsftpd
Then you can add users in the ftp group so they can connect to your machine via FTP.
For instance, to add the user obiwankenobi:
usermod -aG obiwankenobi
