Enable FTP service in OS X Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan
Beginning with OS X Lion (client), Apple removed in System Preferences, the option to activate the FTP server.
Fortunately the daemon is still there, just dormant.
To wake it up launch Terminal and type
sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
You can disable FTP anytime typing the following command
sudo -s launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
