Ubuntu LTS Server - set up FTP

I setup FTP on Ubuntu.  I am just trying to easily transfer a folder of files from my Windows 7 laptop to my Ubuntu server.    I installed the ftp server and configured it using vsftpd, but I am still missing something.  How do I setup a user as the anonymous login is not working?
I had followed a few online tutorials for this but still am having issues.

should be enough to configure vsftpd with anon or PAM (system) user access.

Okay, thanks and one more question on this.  Now I am ftp'ing from Ubuntu to a windows pc.  I can copy a single file over using the get command, but I am trying to bring over an entire folder (it's not compressed).  Do you know the command for this??

mget transfers multiple files within the same directory.

You can use pscp from the command putty

Using pscp -R user@ubuntuboxname:/path/to/folder
This will transfer all the contents of folder the location from which you ran the command.
