In Lion there are no native FTP services so perhaps I cannot replicate your scenario. In previous versions of OS X the sharing preference allowed for FTP, SMB as well as AFP.
Turn off file sharing, open the terminal and try to telnet to port 21 to see if you get an answer.
telnet 127.0.0.1 21
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [TLS] ----------
220-Local time is now 14:36. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
I am running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Pureftpd version 1.8. I tried what you suggested, but received the following message when file sharing was turned off:
"telnet 127.0.0.1 21
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host"
I turned off everything except for FTP under preferences, but I was still able to "connect as" from another networked computer. That computer seems to be storing my password somehow, is there any way to delete that?
Also, what do you mean by "in Lion there are no native ftp services?" Is this saying that Lion does not have the option to "connect as" or "share screen" using airport under the shared tab?
