Welcome to LQ
Which distribution?
Install the ftp server in your distro, start the service, open and/or forward the ports on the router/firewall.

---how to get Linux using ftp?

---how to ftp using Linux?

---how to use Linux to make an ftp server?

Please give a more complete description of what you need to do.

Another welcome to LQ!

Assuming you want to either set up an FTP client or server, might I suggest you look at using SSH/SFTP instead? It's a much better & more secure alternative to FTP.
