From ArchWiki

ProFTPD (Pro FTP daemon) is a highly feature rich FTP server, exposing large amount of configuration options to the user.


Install proftpdAUR.

Then enable/start proftpd.service.


The configuration file is available at /etc/proftpd.conf. The project's website has an extensive documentation.

Anonymous access

To head off a common problem, for anonymous access to work with /bin/false as the shell for the ftp user (the default configuration), you must add the line RequireValidShell off to /etc/proftpd.conf. Otherwise anonymous logins will receive a 530 error.
