MacosX Ftp server


sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist


sudo -s launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist



While this hint will work as stated, it’s pretty much incorrect usage of launchctl for the purpose of the hint.

launchctl load...loads the FTP service into launchd‘s database of services. When you do an unload, you are telling launchd to not manage it anymore.

So a better way to do this–probably the proper way–is to first issue the command to load the service:

sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

Then, if you’d like to stop FTP, issue this command:

sudo launchctl stop

And if you decide you’d like to bring it back up, use this command:

sudo launchctl start

If you’d like for launchd to forget about FTP, that is when you would run this:

sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

The hint as-is will work, but seems a little counter-productive to make launchd remember and forget about FTP all the time.
