    Hi,

    I have a Mac that I would like to allow SFTP connections to. Is there any documentation anywhere on how to configure my Mac so as to allow SFTP connections?

    Thanks for any info, I am new at this.

    CrushFTP looks like a possibility. Anyone had any experience with this App?

    If you have SSH active, then SFTP is active too.

    You can always use the CLI.

    That's a good point, thanks. I managed to get CrushFTP up and running and configured for FTPS connection. I think that will be a better solution than SFTP, as it should be faster. Connected via Fetch and Core FTP LE. Ben, the software developer, is very helpful.
