If you think you need this product, you are probably wrong. SFTP is better than FTP in every way, and it can be enabled by simply checking "Remote Login" in the Sharing panel of System Preferences.

Dirt simple. Run enable ftpd to start scanning documents to your mac via ftp. Run disable ftpd when finished. No dialogs. Nothing to click on. Just works.

Beginning with OS X 10.7, Apple removed the GUI to control the ftpd service as it is seen as a security risk. Apple wasn't thinking about users who own scan-to-FTP-capable network printers and scanners. Many users send documents to their Mac by FTP. ftpd-enable is a menubar icon that has a pulldown menu to enable or disable ftpd. You must provide an admin account and password to actually enable or disable ftpd but no password is required to run the app. If ftpd is running, a green unlocked padlock icon appears. If ftpd is disabled a red locked padlock icon appears. A yellow icon means ftpd is running at the moment. It is normal for the icon to stay yellow for up to a minute after ftpd-enable launches. The about dialog is self-dismissing and includes a button for help and a donate button. Tested in OS X 10.7, 10.7.1 through 10.9. Starting with version 1.2, the app uses launchctl to allow ftpd to automatically launch when needed. Donations appreciated!
