How to connect Ubuntu server with Filezilla?

Hi,

I just deployed a linux server Ubuntu 12.04 with SSH and LAMP roles. I also instaleld moodle website in it. Everything working fine but I need to use filezilla to access moodle web site files from my Windows 7 workstation.
I installed Filezilla and used the internal ip address of the linux server but receiving followiung error
Status:	Connecting to 192.168.10.19:21...
Status:	Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error:	Could not connect to server

Open in new window


So how can I setup the filezilla for this server? Should I install anything else on the linux server?

Did you install an FTP server in Ubuntu?

I can't remember which one I installed, but there should be a couple of different ones you can choose from. I can look in the repos in a little while (I'm currently at the office), but you should be able to search in Synaptic Package Manager for "ftp". See what comes back. Make sure the one you pick denotes "server" and not a client, though.
