Chapter 25. FTP Serving

Sometimes it is helpful to be able transfer files between machines. If you are collaborating on a project, you or your collaborators might need to exchange files. As mail spools frequently have file size limits, an FTP server can provide an alternative means to exchange files. If you have built a Web site on one machine, but would like to transfer it to your OS X machine because you have a Web server running on it, an FTP server can provide a way to do so. With little effort, your OS X machine can run an FTP server to facilitate this activity. In this chapter, we will look at the FTP server that is included in the OS X distribution. Then we will look at an alternative, highly configurable FTP server that you could install in place of the default FTP server. Lastly, we will take a brief look at alternatives that can be used in place of, or in conjunction with, an FTP server.
