    Services - FTP Access
    Hi.

    In Sharing > Services, I started FTP Access but I'm not able to connect from other computers on the same home network. The other computers can ping this FTP Mac but ftp://user:password@<my ip address> fails, so does command line FTP.

    I'm not seeing any configurations settings for this FTP service and I'm not seeing anywhere to add FTP privileges to users on the FTP Mac.

    I'm a Mac novice so I might be missing something basic, but I know it's not a firewall issue. OS X 10.4.8, pretty vanilla setup, but also have Personal File Sharing and Windows Sharing started.

    Suggestions?

    Lets try a simpler test first.

    Can you connect to yourself?
    From your mac, open an ftp connection to your mac.

    Server: 127.0.0.1
    User Name: [your account's short name]
    Password: [your login password]

    CaSe Is SeNsiTiVe !

    Does it work?

    No, that fails. Tried with ForkLift "connection refused by host." and Firefox (ftp://...) "can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1"

    Got it. Restarting the computer seems to fix it.

    Duh.
