well since you say the one you found is tricky to configure, and since you didn't say
what you were having problems with, then i assume you dont' want
to deal with it, so what i am going to recommend is that you install and use proftpd, as
its not hard to setup, and it is the most popular ftp server ...
and if you go here you can access the great guide MasterC wrote which is located in the Linux
Answers section of this site ...

I use ProFTPD in my embedded distro, and it works great.
