What's the best and easiest FTP server to use in Debian for a small LAN?

I was told that wu-ftpd is very old and has a lot of security holes. I
used to use it a lot when I had a dedicated broadband connection. Now, I
have to use dial-up connection for Internet access. :( Since it is not a
24/7 connection, I am having problems with wu-ftpd connecting because it
wants to do domain look ups. I do not want to be online when using
FTP'ing. See http://tinyurl.com/5stfg for my old newsgroup thread about
Is there a basic and easy to use FTP server to replace wu-ftpd for my
Debian box (Kernel 2.6.8 and v3.1 from Sarge installer)? All I need is
basic FTP file transfer between computers (PowerBook G4 with MacOS X
10.2.8, PC notebooks and desktops running Windows 98 to XP) on my tiny
LAN without it looking up domains. Also, resume capability as well for
huge file transfers in case I need to abort and do it later (rarely).
Thank you in advance.
