I like BPFTP server for this. It is very simple to get set up and running.

to Lee Ingalls- I actually have FileZilla Client and Server, but when I try to use it it says the server is unreachable. Any suggestions?

Is the FTP Server (FileZilla) or other behind a firewall?
If you are behind a firewall you need to create a connection from your external IP to the internal IP.

If the response is 'unreachable', then changing the server software probably won't change that.  That's a firewall or server setup problem.
