    Hoping someone can provided some guidance/thoughts on a FTP problem I have with OS X server running on a Mac Mini. Currently I have devices FTP'ing to a Synology Diskstation with no issue. I have always found FTP setup simple in the past but am stumped migrating away from the Synology to the Mac Mini as the server. The devices (which happen to be Panasonic network cameras) that FTP to the Synology without issue can not FTP to the Mac. Here's an entry I see in the server log and I assume it's related to the issue. There is not much in the log that states have relation to FTP.

    Jan 11 11:30:23 Mac-Mini-Server com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.apple.ftpserver.7262CD1A-4D63-462C-933D-9BF805814421): Service instances do not support events yet.

    I have the FTP started, users defined, have FTP defined under "access" as custom access with two users allow from all networks on ports 20-21. In the FTP configuration I have a share setup as /ftproot with folder permissions for the two users with read&write access. I have tried both passive and active FTP. I think I've looked through all of the server config but can find anything else that I believe needs to be set up/defined. I have validated that I can use both userids to start and FTP session when done from a terminal window, so userid/passwords appear correct. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

    Some FTP clients have issues connecting with MacOSX. Can you connect with another mac? ftp user@hostname

    Yes, no problem at all with ftp user@hostname. Stumped.
