    Hello.

    Which are the more recommended apps for creating a FTP Server? I'm not looking for a client,though.

    Thanks!

    Hey yellow, and all.

    I have tried this already, on Leopard. I thought that it would be just a tick of the box file sharing, options and select FTP, but i was wrong. How do i create a user account and all? Don't i need this?

    All user accounts are created locally on the computer, so just create and account as normal via System Preferences -> Accounts.

    If you're just sharing with your own computer, within your own network, then just use regular file sharing and don't get caught up in an FTP server. Unfortunately, I don't have Leopard installed on anything at hand, so I can't tell you the specifics of how to share.

    Ok, Yellow.

    This is the case: I want to share files over my Wireless Network with another computer on Vista. We're both connected by out wireless network. When you have Leopard at hand, please teach me on how to go about on this. Thanks.

    Fred.
