How to setup secure ftp on Linux 7.2

I have a server running RedHat Linux 7.2 and need to set it up with some sort of secure ftp or ssl ftp.  I have been reading about OpenSSL and OpenSSH, but haven't found anything that explains how to setup secure ftp.  Right now ftp is setup on the server, it is wu-ftpd-2.6.1-18.

OpenSSH was installed on the server when RedHat was installed, here are the version numbers:

openssh-clients-2.9p2-7
openssh-2.9p2-7
openssh-askpass-gnome-2.9pc-7
openssh-server-2.9p2-7
openssh-askpass-2.9p2-7

OpenSSL was also installed when RedHat was installed and I also downloaded OpenSSL and compiled and installed it, but couldn't figure out how to make it work with FTP.  Here are the versions of it:

openssl-0.9.6b-28
openssl-perl-0.9.6b-28
openssl-devel-0.9.6b-28


I'm looking for some direction, maybe what steps I could take to setup secure ftp.  By reading the man pages and what little documentation I can find on the internet I just am not getting a clear picture of how to go about this.

Thanks for any help.

install Freebsd.
cd /usr/ports/net/sftp
make && make install
./configure
edit conf.

I don't know if this is what you're looking for but basic SFTP server comes with SSHD, which is bundled to Linux RH 7.x. Just use ssh client (eg FSecure ssh client) and connect to ssh server (your rh 7.2) and go to sftp mode. Any other sftp client will do also.

I guess you don't have a lot of features to configure but it just might do. Look in /etc/sshd.conf and man pages.

Hope this helps

I went to FreeBSD.org and found that FreeBSD is an operating system.  I can't install a new OS, I need to make this work on RedHat 7.2.
