    Best FTP distro


    I have an old box laying around that I'm thinking about putting a bigger hdd in and making it a FTP server. I need it to handle both downloads and uploads, and require a user name and password when connecting.

    So:
    What distribution should I use?

    I was thinking about using Ubuntu 9.x server edition for the ease of use (easy to use from what I've heard). Any other recommendations?

    That should work fine. You can take a look at this link for some other popular distro options for server usage:
