setting up ubuntu for ftp/ssh
I have a laptop running windows and a desktop running Ubuntu 12.10 and I'm looking to be able to set the desktop up to run as a server. I've seen stuff about installing different stuff like Apache on Ubuntu and using it as a server like that but all of it is very fuzzy to me.
Is anyone able to give or provide an in-depth or step by step guide with reasons on how to set this up?

Not to overwhelm you but here is the link to the server Guide https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/

I dont use or believe in ftp so I wont comment on setting it up, just personal preferences.
