    FTP in Mac OSX 10.13 High Sierra

    Hi all,

    It appears that Apple has decided to remove the native FTP server in Mac OSX 10.13, which means we don't have the option of enabling it via Terminal.

    For our Sharp copiers, FTP was the best way to scan files to Macs.

    Anyone know of a free FTP solution to add to a Mac to re-enable FTP scan to folder?

    Thanks!

    There's always Filezilla.
    Download FileZilla Client for Mac OS X

    Thanks for the suggestion, but Fillezilla doesn't have an FTP server option for Mac. It has only the client software, which won't help us in this instance.

    I've been playing with Pure-FTPd, which is pure command line and am still working through it, when I have free time.

    Any other suggestions would be great.

    Thanks.

    What tool did you use exactly? I have the same issue in my office, but I am not sure what steps you took to fix this issue.

    As for SMB, the Sharp's don't play nice with Macs. I've never gotten it to work using SMB and I've seen a Sharp Tech Bulletin basically saying that changes to the Mac OSX some versions ago broke SMB from Sharp copiers to Macs.

    I suspect the Canon tool probably won't work in OSX10.13, if it enables the built-in FTP, since it is now gone.

    I'll get the Pure-FTPd working in near future, if I ever get a chance to commit an hour to it. Work has been crazy!!!
