    well,since I turn on my MacBook 24/7,so I decided to make it into a server to share files,but I don't have much experience in this,so anyone know how to create a FTP server on Mac,or any kind of file sharing? I'm feed up with torrent already.

    To make it a server you know you need at least 2 computers right?

    Anyway FTP and LAN file sharing is simple with the Mac. System Prefs>Sharing Pane> Remote Login & Personal File Sharing boxes need to be checked.

    Then FTP away. Or connect through the Finder via the Go>Connect... option.
