Help with FTP and TFTP

Can someone explain the use FTP/TFTP? I understand the commands and how to use it some what but Im just confused on the server aspect I guess. Do you need to setup a FTP/TFTP server before you can even use it or is that for just another function.

Im in the middle of trying to flash my router with DD-WRT for the first time and just didnt want to fuck it up after all the work I put into it. I would like to mess around with it more for just sending files but just confused on the whole setting it up before hand, if I even have to.


Do you need to setup a FTP/TFTP server before you can even use it


When you want to copy from and to Ubuntu scp is more convenient (scp used ssh). Also requires installing of server software to make it possible though.
