    I've tried searching the forums, but came up empty-handed.

    I'm looking to setup sftpd under OS X... is this available? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the included ftpd is not secure, yes? (Unsecure as in Telnet vs SSH.)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    sftp (secure file transfer protocol) is like fugu, sftpd (secure file transfer protocol daemon) is the server for it.

    On to the question, I don't think OSX includes a defualt install of a secure FTPD so your going ot have to find a third party program to provide it.

    Yes, you can!

    Mac OS X does indeed include sftp by default. Simply go to Sharing and enable the SSH server (also ensure that port 22 is not firewalled). This will allow connections over SFTP to the machine. Please be mindful of the security issues involved when doing this.
