Mac OSx Native SCP Server Review

MacOS Native SCP Server Review

Many SCP Servers are made for Windows Operating Systems but the MacOS SCP server is a great free option that comes with a MacOS. It does not offer a lot of functionality or features but if you need to transfer files securely, it will get the job done.


  • No configuration necessary
  • Easy to use
  • Great option for home based users that need secure file sharing capabilities on their network
