FTP is not what you want to use if both computers are on the same network.

Are both computers running OSx?

If they are, go to system pref / sharing and enable sharing then select the select the folder that you want to share. At that point when you go to finder you will see the other computer in finder and should be able to open it and see the shared folder.

If one is a windows box, you have to enable sharing on the Windows computer then share the folder that you want to share (right click properties) then use SAMBA to connect to that folder on the windows machine.
