FTP Servers

Hey, I'm a newbie to Linux and I'm running Mandrake 9.2, and I was wondering what's a good ftp server for me. I'd kinda like it to be easy to configure and use.

I always recommend ProFTPd. You'll hear others recommending other FTP daemons but this is my choice.

ProFTP seems to be the default that some distros install if you request a FTP server, so it seems to be pretty popular.

Personally, I recommend PureFTP. Easy and secure.

I was thinking "now the vsFTPd horde comes" but lo and behold, DD likes the good stuff!
