Setting up an FTP server on ubuntu 9.10 (jaunty) has never been easier.
The following will allow the ubuntu desktop users to login using their usernames and passwords to their home directories.
This will require some terminal work, don’t worry, it’s only a copy and paste job.
First we need to install the FTP program, we are going to be using VSFTPd. This program will run in the background (a deamon, hence the lower case “d” at the end of it’s name) of your computer and deal with the FTP connections.
Copy and paste this code into terminal and hit enter.
sudo apt-get install vsftpd
