I would recommend that you use SSH (try OpenSSH from www.opensecsh.org),
and then use scp to copy files to and from the host. I think that OpenSSH
also has a secure ftp program as well, so that might be worth exploring.
For a terminal program for windows, try PuTTY
(http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/), and for a scp GUI
client for Windows, try iXplore (linked from the above page, or
http://www.i-tree.org/ixplorer.htm). It is a bit crude at the moment
If you absolutely must have an FTP server, then I am afraid that I cannot
help you, as I am too paranoid to install one! :-)
Once you have SSH installed (and working!), comment out the line in
inetd.conf in /etc that runs telnetd. This will make your machine more
Hope this helps.

Personally I have no qualms about having an FTP server available. You
just have to be careful to use it in an intelligent manner. If there is
any real risk of the session being sniffed an FTP transfer may not be the
best idea. And there are ways of doing that safely. You can always create
a temporary account, use it for the FTP transfer, and immediately delete
the account. Or install NcFTP and set it up to use its local FTP-only
account capability (and make the FTP account names and passwords
different from their Unix counterpart).
The instructions said to use Windows 98 or better, so I installed FreeBSD.
