    Help on FTP server setup

    I just installed the Ubuntu server and would like to setup a FTP site for users to login with username & password.

    The Ubuntu machine is located on a Windows network (I changed the WORKGROUP to be the same as the Windows machines).

    I want only users that I have specified to have access to upload & download files.

    I would like the most simple and secure way to setup the machine.

    Your help would be much appreciated......

    Curious, I'm working on the same thing.

    What did you do to set up your server to the WORKGROUP?
