To scan to MAC 10.7.5 via FTP without the use of a third party application. Although Apple has done away with the GUI interface to enable the FTP server service, it is still available via Terminal commands. Steps are as follows;
1 – Double Click the MAC Hard Drive.
2 – Navigate to Applications/Utilities and double Click [Terminal].
3 – In the Terminal, type the following command [sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist] and hit [enter].
4 – You will be prompted for the MAC HD password. Type the password and hit [enter].
5 – Now type the following command to start the regular FTP service. [sudo launchctl start com.apple.ftpd] and hit [enter].
6 – You will be prompted for the MAC HD password. Type the password and hit [enter].
The FTP service is now started accepting incoming connections to the MAC user’s home folder. [/Users/Currentlyloggedinuser].
7 – To test, open FileZilla and connect to port 21 with the same credentials used to log into the MAC.
8 – Configure the default repository of your Xerox machine as you normally would for FTP. **Note** there is no need to specify a document path or share. Your scanned documents will be placed in the MAC user’s home directory.
Mac 10.9 FTP
Follow the link to get the FTP enable / disable app, http://www.troncept.com/lion-ftpd-enable/
(download version 1.3) Xerox did not create this app, this is a 3rd party app but seems to work very well.
Once its downloaded it will add an icon for FTP on the desktop, Open the application and run it. This will create a lock icon to appear along the top of the Mac (top right area) simply click on the lock to enable FTP.
Once FTP is enabled then setup the Printer.
Go into the File Repository Setup and set the following.
Friendly Name is optional
The Protocol is set to FTP
Ip address of the Mac.
Path: /users/username or another example /Users/xerox/public/scan
Login Credentials: The login creds for the user of the Mac. (Below is a sample of a setup, Xerox is the user)
Apple > System Preferences > File Sharing
Select File Sharing and click the + sign to add the folder by browsing, then add the user account that the printer will be using to access it.
Select Options to add Windows SMB or Share Files and folders using SMB (Windows)
Then for the C60:
I am assuming there is a Fiery, if there is not, just skip the first part and start in CWIS
Open the web browser for the Fiery and click the link in the lower right of the screen for the copier itself.
The first step is to open up the Default Template and set up your defaults as all scan templates will be made from this. I recommend setting DPI to 300 and set the original type to Photo and Text and File Format to PDF to get the best all round scan. Any others are personal preference.
Next go to File Repository Setup. Leave the Default Repository alone as it is used by the Fiery and select the Add button to add a new template.<If you don't have a Fiery, go ahead and use the default, but be forewarned, if you do have a Fiery and change the default you will be breaking calibrations and the ability of the copier and Fiery to properly communicate, this will be noticeable)
Give the Repository a Friendly Name so you will recognize it later. Set up your protocol (FTP or SMB) input your Destination server, input the share folder name and in the file path put the rest of the path to your scan folder. Scroll down and select Apply.
Next, select the Scan tab and select the New Template button on the lower left of the screen. Give the Template the same name as the File Repository name you created in the previous step and click Apply.
When you select your Template you will be presented with several options, typically leave the first pull down at Rename New File, on the File Destination pull down you will see the Friendly Name you used earlier, select that template and click Apply.
When finished you can set any other defaults by scrolling down the page and Edit any specific settings you would like to change for each individual Template. To turn off the .XST file scroll down to the Report Options and disable Job Log. Once the scans are successful you can also turn off the Confirmation Sheet.
These screenshots are from the 560, not the C60, but they are near identical, you will be able to flow with any small wording changes easily enough. If it fails to scan , try updating the firmware to the latest from here. If it still fails, you missed a step somewhere because the machine works to the latest 10.11.5 with that firmware using these exact steps. The only reason for the screenshots from the other machine was my choice not to entirely redo the screenshots just for a forum post
I apologize I did not include the link for the steps for setting up the scanning feature. Please follow the instructions in this solution to enable and set up the scan feature.
Thanks, but I believe there is a litte more to the setup required by the C60 than just making a shared folder.
Thank you for using the Support Forum. To enable folder/file sharing on your computer. Follow this link to the Apple Mac site to find the steps for configuring the folder on the Mac. Please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.
Are there step-by-step instructions for configuring network scanning to a Mac running OSX- el Cap? My scanner is a networked "Color C60". I have the manual for the C60. I need to learn how to configure a folder on the Mac that can receive scanned docs from the C60. Our tech configured the Windows PC's.
