Hello. You certainly want to google for "linux ftp server". Other than that I could recommend you:

Open whatever software whatever distro you are using uses for package management. Search for a package called ftpd. That will give you an ftp server, though obviously some configuration may be required depending on the exact behaviour you required. If you want an sftp server, e.g. if you prefer a protocol that doesn't send your username, password and anything you transfer in the clear over the Internet, then look for a package called sshd or openssh-server or something like that. You may well already have it installed.

thanks for the advices but what I'm looking for is a ftp with the filezilla server interface.

I have to install something on linux, but who is going to manage the privileges have not got any computer knowledge, then I need a good managing interface. This is why I'm looking for a filezilla server, becouse of it's interface.

Any tips?

Thanks again

Hello. I could just tell you: 'welcome to linux :-D' but actually there are some popular frontends to ftp servers:

for proftpd

for pureftpd

I don't know any vsftpd frontend but, do feel free to google around. Hope this helps. Cheers
