Question Easy Quick FTP Server Help


Does anyone know of a program which can configure FTP on a RH 8 server? I was hoping to have something I can configure via GUI. I tried ProFTPD and it is too complicated for me. I remember a program that was available awhile back which included FTP, HTPP, DNS and all kinds of utilities. Does anyone know of anything they reccomend? I just want to use a simple FTP program which will allow only me to log in. I do not want to allow anonymous log in. I did a search on the forum and could only find information for ProFTPD which does not make sense to me.

Thx

try vsftpd: http://vsftpd.beasts.org/

please remember that ftp is an insecure protocol... your password and files will be clearly seen by anybody that sniffs your connection...

So maybe I don't know what I need. I just want to create a FTP server in my DMZ so I can access the files on it from the Web. Am I on the right track?
