quickTip: Enabling FTP on Mountain Lion
If your running Mountain Lion you may have noticed the missing FTP sharing options. Don't worry, FTP server is still there, even if it is a client installation and not a Server install. You have to enable FTP server on a client install from Terminal
Lets get started
- Open up Terminal
- Copy and past the following command
sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
To disable, do unload instead of load.
Note: The default FTP directory is the users's home directory.
