Setting up FTP

Help please!
I am a retoucher who would like to offer his clients the facility to access their retouched files via ftp. My experience of ftp is limited in that I have used Fetch software from time to time to upload and download files but I have no idea how to set up a system whereby I can securely isolate different client's work and keep my own computer safe from malware etc. Is it easy to set up and if so can you point me in the direction of easy to follow online instruction. I have come to computers through traditional repro, rather than the other way round, so keep it simple please.

many thanks
R.

Re: Setting up FTP

I recommend Rumpus. I have the same requirements as you, and it has worked well for me for about 5 years. Its pretty easy to get up and running, but not dead simple.
It offers a lot of flexibility and fantastic support.

good luck.

Re: Setting up FTP

If you don't already have a server for your website, a solution like Dropbox would probably be more appropriate. If you do have a server, your hosting company should be able to help you out.
