[Pauldotcom] Ideas for Securing my FTP Server

Does anyone have suggestions for my current situation? I have found that
someone has been trying to brute-force login to my FTP Server, so far they
have been unsuccessful. I don't think they are using any tools or software
to do this. They have just been using a user name like administrador and
trying passwords til it times out. I have blocked his IP, but that can be
changed easily. I have his IP and thats about it. Can I simple change the
port that my FTP connects on? This should reduce the risk of someone
"stumbling" onto my ftp, right?
Any ideas on a cheap IDS (aka free) system that might catch something like
this in the future.
