Linux based FTP server with GUI


Is there any sort of made for Linux FTP server software that features a GUI ? I am a total newbie and I am getting my butt kicked by VSFTPD... and I am trying hard to avoid using a windows machine as my server. Any suggestions ???

vsftpd is the easiest one i found to learn. did you check the man page i think it is man vsftpd.conf? here is an html version http://vsftpd.beasts.org/vsftpd_conf.html

that breaks it down well. all you have to do is go through each option and deside what you want. you dont even have to go through each option if you dont want. i tried some other ftp servers but i found vsftpd to be the easiest to use. good luck though

vsftpd might be the best choice for newer, it's so easy to configure that even you dont konw everything about it. just trying, you will be reward.
