ftp on OSX Lion

While it really isn’t secure at any measure, ftp is a very useful way of moving files around. Apple’s OSX have a build-in basic ftp server, but in Lion (version 10.7) the user interface seems to have disappeared from the User interface. The servers is still available under the hood if you need it. To enable the ftp-server (the availability) enter this command in a terminal window: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.
