You'll want to install openssh-server
I would suggest you use vsftpd for security and speed as well as
group-based and user-based configs.
It can also support virtual users as well as system users. If you'd
like help setting it up, feel free to email me. I've set up quite a
few producton FTP servers for clients as well as F/OSS projects.I
personally prefer using berkelyDB for virtual users, it's simple to
set up.

You are aware that SSH has SFTP, right? It's a pain to jail, which I
don't like doing.
