    I recommend vsftp for your linux ftp server.

    Run "yum install screen" for screen.

    Is vsftp the server end on the box, can I increase the connections for WinSCP so that I can max out my home line?
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    Yup, vsftp is the ftp server. I haven't looked into the number of allowed connections but I'm sure there's an option for it somewhere.

    You're going to have to be more specific deKoy. What kind of linux do you have running on the box? If you don't know, contact your hosting company or open up a terminal as a root user and type
    uname -r
    And post the results.

    Also, what is "screen"?

    Screen allows you to run virtual terminals so you can still run programs like rtorrent in the backgroup even if you aren't SSHed to your box. It's also great because if you get disconnected from the server, the screen or virtual terminal will detach from the SSH session and you can reconnect to it once you SSH back into your server.

    Here's a great link:
