Nikon D4, Ethernet, FTP and Macbook Success!

UPDATE: Finally got this working – it was down to a setting in CrushFTP that was banning the static IP. I have no idea why the IP was banned but removing this config setting cleared everything up.

UPDATE2: I’ve also ditched CrushFTP and am using the built in Mac OSX SFTP server. Full details on how to do this is here: http://www.chainsawonatireswing.com/

UPDATE3: I’ve also got it working wirelessly with the HAME MPR-A1 which is available via eBay sellers. Stay clear of clones or no-name versions though.

UPDATE4: It seems Pure-FTPd is another alternative if you want to use FTP rather than SFTP. Canon doesn’t support SFTP so if you’re using a 1D X or 1D C you will need to fire up a FTP server. http://www.pureftpd.org/project/pure-ftpd

And you can use the built in FTP server on OSX with these commands (via macworld):
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
sudo launchctl stop com.apple.ftpd
sudo launchctl start com.apple.ftpd
sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

I’m pretty handy with cameras, computers and networking but nothing I’ve tried can get my Nikon D4 transferring files to my Macbook Pro via ethernet to a FTP server running on the Mac. Here’s what I’ve tried:

Anyone out there have any suggestions?
