Thread: FTP server
03-31-2004, 11:09 AM #1bamonGuestFTP server
I am about to switch to a 12'1 g4 ibook. as i get a lot of stuff fxped to my current windows machine (which i can't wait to get rid off), i am wondering about a ftp server program as easy-to-use and customizable for OSX as SERV-U for windows is.

I'd be quite surprised if OS X doesn't come with one built-in.... never played with serving, only client-ing.
On a related note, don't go buy any FTP client software for OS X. From the Finder, just hit command-K and you can connect to FTP natively.

Hope this helps and makes sense.

With 10.3.x, integration to a windows network is seemless. open Finder and click on Network, find the Domain or workgroup you want to connect to and after you click on it, a box will pop up and you will be given the option to Authenticate. If you have permission to use the domain, your in. The selected share will be mounted and you are free to roam about the network.
OS X has Samba control down to an art. I love it.

OS X does include a built-in FTP server. It's a checkbox in the Sharing pane of System Preferences; you log in with your account name and password. Not very customizable, but good enough for personal use.
Since OS X is Unix, there are a number of free command-line servers available as well. Just ask Google.
