Gftp is a good one. It may be on your distribution disks. I would need to know what Distribution you have. If not you can download it at http://gftp.seul.org/

They have documentation on how to install and set up on their site.

Yeah basically if you install Gnome with any distro, your going to have gftp installed as well. I have yet really seen a distro without it, unless during the install you specify not to.

I like using lftp. It supports a variety of protocols such as FTPS and HTTPS, and it has some neat features such as mirroring, job queueing, connection throttling,etc.

These were client apps that I gave you.

I would like to ask a question cause I am getting confused.
1. Do you want to host an FTP site so people can log in and download items from your computer?
2. Do you want to login to an FTP site someone else set up and download items from the other persons computer to your computer?

Thank you

I agree ProFTPd is easier to setup. Once setup there really is no difference once you figure out the system. I do suggest that server for you
