I've recently set up an ftp server on my mac (running OS 10.2.6) and
can succesfully ftp to and from it using my login name.
My friend did a file transfer from my machhine and when I did a 'top'
command I saw a process called 'ftpd' which was obviously handling his
To check this process I did a 'man ftpd' which told me all the
switches and configuration files needed to set up a secure
customisable ftp server - so far so good.
However when I type ftpd at the unix prompt I get ftpd not found.
