    It needs to be a GUI for end user control. Again this needs to be a server not a client.

    IF you want to make a GUI FTo server i sugest you to install Webmin and then you can administer your FTP server via Web interface in a GUI.

    www.webmin.org

    You can administer anything you like from webmin in a GUI.

    Offering clients a nice FTP gui is not the servers responsability..... all ftp servers conform to the same standard, and while some have nicer configuration tools written than others (read GUI) there is no way for an ftp server to provide the GUI for a client. Althought a client may choose to use a nice gui to access the ftp.

    Did you ever find anything?

    I'm looking for something that I can use with a low learning curve.

    From time to time, I share files with others and prefer to let them connect to my PC directly versus trying to send the files via yousendit.com, etc., since I've got a relatively fast cable modem connection to my home (and my router is already setup to route ftp traffic to the connection my PC grabs from the router).

    So, I have Serv-U installed under Windows XP Pro.

    But, I can't seem to locate anything similar to Serv-U with a nice GUI that makes it easier to setup and administor users and permissions for use with Linux (I'm currently using SimplyMEPIS more and more on the desktop, and would like to have an easy to use FTP server solution for it, too).

    There must be something out there (surely I'm not the only person that would like a nice GUI interface for configuration versus using command line interfaces, editing files, etc.).

    If you have any suggestions, they would be appreciated. I've received a few suggestions on other forums. But, they all appear to involve use of command line, and I'd prefer the ease of use I have with products like Serv-U under Windows).

    Thanks in advance.

    Why don't you install and configure vsftpd and have your clients utilize anonymous ftp - using Internet Explorer or FireFox (ftp://serverip_or_hostname)? You can't get more graphical than that, can you?
