prsuably that would be through the configuration fo whatever FTP server 
your CentOS host is running...   probably vsftpd

...but you do realize, FTP uses plaintext passwords on the network, and 
anyone who can sniff any link between you and your server gets your root 

much better to use something liike SCP/SFTP/RSYNC for your authenticated 
file transfers.
