Recently, our lab bought a Mac mini server with OS X 10.8.1 Mountain Lion.


We want to setup a FTP for uploading experimental files to the mac mini.


but we have problem about how to set up a FTP server 'cause there's no such options in mac mini server.


I search related information for a long time, but i'm not expert in this field, so it bother me so hard.


Cyberduck, PureFTPd manager, Moutain Tweaks, all the program above didn't work.


I have no idea whether I did it in a wrong way, or OS X Mountain Lion system just can't setup FTP server.


Is there any way to setup a FTP server on Mac mini with OS X Mountain Lion? Would the FTP server also accessible for Windows users?


Thanks for answering my question.

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
