How to install proftpd on freebsd?

I installed my linux binaries.

I am having trouble installing proftpd.

Anybody have a tutorial or anything?

Run this command as root:

pkg_add proftpd

Wait a bit, you'll see a list of filenames. By the end, if there is no error, proftpd is successfully installed.

pkg_add proftpd will probably give this:
# pkg_add proftpd
pkg_add: can't stat package file 'proftpd'
You should use:
pkg_add -r proftpd
cd /usr/ports/proftpd && make && make install clean
(probably you should try the pkg_add way)

After that, you will have to configure proftpd.conf.
