I came across these sites over the long weekend and then found myself pieceing together a shabby little computer to run my own FTP server...good stuff. Just thought I'd share the wealth.

***Be warned, some of this is risky stuff, if you don't totally know what
you're doing, it might be better not to do it at all...some of this involves opening ports and other scary stuff that can let bad people in***

there's another ftp server app that is extremely user friendly... I'll try and find it. I had it up for a couple of friends so they could access some stuff.

This may have been it... (http://www.download.com/FTP-Explorer/3000-2160_4-10783087.html?tag=lst-6) but honestly, I just realized I don't remember what the layout looked like.
