FTPServer is very good, SwiFTP is another option. I believe they're both in the Market.

Matthew, do those two work as regular FTP clients as well, i.e. login to a remote server and manage files on it? – Francisc Jan 16 '11 at 19:16
I don't believe so. I searched a bit and didn't see any apps that did both. – Matthew Read Jan 16 '11 at 21:05

I use QuickSSHd. It costs $1.50 US but is worthwhile for me because it gives command line access as well as full root filesystem access. Does require root.

I use WiFi File Explorer. It's for accessing (and moving, etc) files on your phone, nothing else, but it does it wonderfully.
