About this app

WiFi transfer plugin and standalone app (does not require Total Commander)

Important note: This app does NOT contain any ads. However, it contains a link to Total Commander in the upper right corner if you use a Web Browser to access the files, and this plugin as the server. This is treated as an ad by the Play Store.

This plugin/tool supports direct connections via HTTP over WiFi/WLAN between two Android devices, or between Android (Server) and any device or computer with a Web browser or WebDAV client.

It creates a local Web+WebDAV server. The server URL can either be scanned as a QR-Code, or entered manually.

Although this is mainly a plugin for Total Commander, it can also be used standalone: Simply select some files in any file manager, or text, or an URL, and then use the "share" function to send it to the WiFi plugin. This will start a server and show the URL and QR-Code for the server.

Great to transfer data locally between two Android devices without going through the cloud! Your data will never leave your own wireless LAN network.

Note: Both devices need to be in the same WiFi network. If the sender isn't part of a WiFi network, this tool will offer to create its own access point, or start a WiFi direct connection. Other devices can then connect to this network to transfer data. If you scan the QR-Code from a copy of the WiFi plugin, the connection will be established automatically, and closed automatically when disconnecting.

Unfortunately Android 10 and newer require the "Location" permission to create a WiFi direct server. The app will request this permission only when you try to start a WiFi direct server. It is not needed for normal operation when client and server are on the same network.

Starting with version 3.4, it's now possible to use a fixed path with user name/password login instead of a random path. It uses DIGEST authentication, so your password is never sent in clear text over the connection. This login method is recommended when connecting regularly to the same device, e.g. when mounting the device as a drive in Windows or MacOS.

I've been using Total Commander for literally decades now and I am always impressed by the software. This plugin, when used with the Android Total Commander app, gives me the ability to transfer files in either direction between my Windows 10 laptop and Android 8 phone using wifi. Although using Wi-Fi Direct was a little temperamental (a Windows issue I've seen before), once I was connected it all worked VERY well. When connecting through an access point I didn't experience any issues at all. I haven't needed or used this to transfer from phone to phone, so I can't comment on how that works. I saw a reviewer say he couldn't push a file from Winodws 10 to his phone. I've done that without any problems, and would mention that there is a checkbox in the control interface for this plugin that needs to be checked to allow receiving files to a SUB-directory (key point there) of the initially shared folder on the phone. Once that is configured properly, I used my browser to navigate to the phone's HTTP (NOT HTTPS!) IP address and into the SUB-directory where the controls to select a file from the Windows 10 computer and upload were then available.

Total Commander and its plugins absolutely free. They are one of the most functional and at the same time principally altruistic software. They give you everything and want nothing in return. Functionally, they are so amazingly versatile, reliable, and comprehensive that they eliminate the need for multiple, perhaps a dozen apps that cost a lot of money, hog your phone's memory and bombard you with ads. They also keep updating, improving, and show genuine care for the users. 100 stars for you.

Great plugin. Really useful and easy to use for transferring files to and from basically any other device. All the Totalcmd software is brilliant, especially considering it's free! It does lack one feature for me though, which is the ability to set a password to access the server, for extra security on public WiFi networks. But that's only a minor thing.
