I upgraded to OSX Lion and now I cant use FTP


By default now, Apple has disabled FTP in OSX Lion, even if you had it turned on before upgrading. 

You can enable FTP in Lion still by doing the following steps:

1...Open a terminal (Applications->Utilities->Terminal)

2…Type in (OR copy/Paste)

 sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

If you'd like to turn off FTP again,  run Terminal and type:


sudo -s launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
