the majority of ftp sites use no encryption, i wouldn't have a clue how to set it up. Yeah using secure passwords basically means letters and numbers.

Recent advice suggests the old idea of long passwords is still very effective. It takes longer to crack a long, but not necessarily over complex password than a short and very complex password (apparently).

So yes dont use proper or real words, dates of birth etc, mix in numbers and sybmols as you please, be as random as you like and make it long.

Secure HTTP would be better for secure file access if that is what you are trying to achieve as you can use SSL encryption and people can still list directories and download files fine over HTTP.

Serve U keeps a log and records who has connected to you. and what theyve done
It also records any failed access attempts too.. 
Most of the stuff will be port scanners just trying to see if there is an open port that they can enter with an anoymous login.

You can check the log from

Domain >
Your domain >
Activity >
Domain logs

You can normally see the ones as a result of a scan, since serveU reports a closing connection
It records the IP addresses too.

Should also remind you to make sure you have set the permissions correctly.
Make sure you "lock the User in the home directory" so that they can only access the folder where you keep all the ftp stuff.
That way they cant go outside that particular folder, and elsewhere on your PC
