    I have an older C2D MBP that i plan to use as a home server. What I'd like to do is setup:
    Home File sharing
    FTP over the internet

    1. I assume I can do both of these with 10.6 and not need Server?

    2. How easy is it to lock down the file sharing so that only I can get to it? I live with 3 other people and a dog, but I don't think I have to worry about the dog.

    3. How easy is it to setup FTP so I have an account for me, one for a friend and one that I can give out to people on a temp basis?

    1. Your assumptions are correct.

    2. Very easy.

    3. Also very easy.
