Lion FTPD Enable This Applescript Cocoa application allows you to enable or disable ftpd in OS X 10.7 Lion or later. Apple removed the GUI for controlling the ftpd server in OS X 10.7. This was because it was considered a security risk. Apple didn't consider users who have scan-to-FTP capable network printers or scanners. Many users send documents to their Macs via FTP. Ftpd-enable can be found in the menubar. It has a pulldown menu that allows you to enable or disable FTPD. To enable or disable FTPD, you will need to create an admin account and password. However, the app can be run without a password. A green padlock icon indicates that ftpd has been started. If ftpd has been disabled, a red lock padlock icon will appear. A yellow icon indicates that ftpd runs at the moment. The icon may stay yellow for up one minute after ftpd is enabled. The about dialog is self-dismissing. It includes a button for help as well as a donate button. It has been tested in OS X 10.7, 10.7.1 and 10.9. Version 1.2 of the app uses launchctl, which allows ftpd automatically to launch when it is needed. Donations are appreciated!
