comment Where to find the config-file for ProFTP?
The easiest way to configure proftpd` is to use the GUI application gadmin-proftpd. It allows for configuring users, too.

comment Can't get vnc to connect
hmm - some points: if you've installed x11vnc, i would expect x11vnc -safer -display :0 as command to start the server. Then: Did you try to increase debug output using the -v option (x11vnc -v -display :0)? Finally: If the -voption doesn't give any errors, you can re-check if the server is running using sudo netstat -atpn. This will give you a list of services running and listening for connections.

@Lexicon: AFAIK there's no already-compiled deb package available, just a source archive. Installing an application from source is described here, for example. The INSTALL file located in the source archive describes the different config options you can set before compiling it.
