Graphical FTP Software

All I want is an easy to use FTP Server application with an intuitive gui. Something like Filezilla. This PC isn't going to be set up as a permanent FTP server, but when I want to host a folder via FTP for friends, I want to be able to do so. I've asked and asked and asked at all kinds of places and nobody seems to know of one. They keep recommending vsftp but all I can ever find is the daemon and can't get it working right.

I think the OP wants a server tool, not a client.

The only easy-to-configure FTP server that I know of is Pure-FTPd. I don't think it offers a GUI frontend, but for a CLI tool it's fairly easy to get used to.
