Looking for easy to use FTP server /w gui
I have recently tried to start my own FTP server and am looking for a good proggie for it and a easy to understand instructions on how to operate it since I am new at this. I have tried ProFTPd and got lost setting it up. I downloaded the RPM for it but I have no idea. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

a GUI ftp server? okkkk

Check out pureftpd at I think you can download GUI frontend for the server. I don't use any GUI on my Slackware setup, but I'm quite sure it has a front end. I setup PureFTPd within ten minutes after going through hell authenticating users using ProFTPd. Mind you, I have around 26 total hours of Linux experience, so if it was that difficult, I would not have been able to install it and have it up and running.

I agree. Pure-ftpd. Can't beat it. It's probably the easiest and most secure ftp server out there right now. I've used it for years and wouldn't use anything else.

It still would be better to use proftpd or the like. People still don't get configuration file based apps. They really are easier to use than gui ones.

Ok Ill give that tut a shot and see what happends I already have the RPM of the installed so we will see where that goes. If I have any problems I will be sure to post back here. I tried a different forum as well and still got no replys on it. Ohh Well I guess everyone can't be as smart as you guys. This forum is the BEST!
