proftpd is not a 'program' that you run, but rather a server that can be started with the system services:
/etc/init.d/proftpd start

Cool

ftpd
proftpd
vsftpd ( "very secure" )
glftpd ( more advanced/more features )

www.webmin.com

That's a gui for it, but it's a generic gui for MANY administering apps/servers.

I use webmin to manage proftp, but I cant remember if it picks it up, or you have to enter the paths for the daemon and the config files.
