FTP servers compatible with Canon EOS R6

The Canon EOS R6, along with the R5, 1DX, and the newer 5D cameras have a FTP client built in. This allows images to be sent via Wifi or Ethernet to a FTP server. One of the use cases is to send images to a computer. This works very well and if you’re using a Mac, they come with an FTP server which just needs be activated. However, since version 10.13 (High Sierra) of the Mac operating system, Apple removed the FTP server from the operating system and a 3rd party application is required.

I have been using the app QuickFTP v1.0.6¬†for several years and it has worked fine with Nikon and Sony cameras. But, it seems that Canon’s EOS R6 doesn’t want to send images to it. The camera reports a successful connection but when an attempt is made to send an image, the camera just doesn’t. So, I found another app Ftp-Serv which does work with the Canon R6. So if you’re using QuickFTP server and pulling your hair out, you can stop it now!
