Gui for SFTP (server)

I know you can set up the sftp protocol throuhg the command line, but I would like more control over the configuration of it and a gui would be very helpful. My final goal with this is to set the linux machine to be the sftp server of my network, but I would like more control over the application.
Thanks in advance

OpenSSH (which Linux, BSD and many other systems use) has sftp installed as an ssh subsystem. Have a look at the last few lines of your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.

Probably looks something like this:
Subsystem       sftp    /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server
That's it. As for configuring how this will be accessed you will want to learn more about ssh. I recommend looking at
man sshd_config
There is not a GUI to configure this that I know of, unless you're talking about a graphical text editor or something.
