I'd like to set up a simple ftp server on my panther machine. Preferably I'd like to use the ftp client that comes built into OS X. However, I'd like to configure it to listen to a non-standard port (as opposed to 21) since I'm on a cable modem. What would I need to edit to go about making this change?

Alternatively, what are some popular mac os x ftp servers?

Ahh, so the mac built in ftp server is really WuFTPd ;) Interesting to know - thanks for the tidbit.

yay! I was useful! :cheesy: I deserve a cookie now! :cheesy:

I would *highly* recommend NOT using wu-ftpd, as it's an exploit magnet. I don't know too much about Macs, but being that Panther uses Darwin, which is based on FreeBSD, I'd suggest using ProFTPd instead. It's much more secure (about as secure as a non-secured ftpd can be, anyway) and is more or less the industry standard.
