proftpd: A unique ftp server on my UbuntuBox

This was basically a novice step by me to setup an ftp server locally, but i succeed! Proftpd is the professional FTP daemon. It can be found in Synaptic package of Ubuntu or can be downloaded via apt-get. Just install it and use standalone server.

Launch it through console (see manual pages for documentation):

neeraj@nee-pc:~$ proftpd

and check through your browser whether it’s running or not. Type ftp://localhost/ in the address bar and assign username and password (the same you use to login into your system)there in the dialoguebox. You must see a window like this:

Local file transfer protocol
Local file transfer protocol

I tried to access it on other computer on my LAN through my ip:

ftp://192.168.*.*

and it was working perfectly fine. So..are you gaming to set up your own ftp?? what say??
