Easily transfers files from tablet to phone Using ES File Manager to act as the ftp client on my phone, I was able to quickly copy several folders of audio books from my tablet. Other apps like Xender failed miserably. Using Chrome (on my phone), I was able to log in to FTPServer and see all of my files, but not transfer them, so what you're trying to use as the client on the receiving end makes a big difference. 5 stars +++++!
What I wanted - had to be tweaked to work on my Note 4 kitkat If you know anything about FTP, this was extremely easy to set up, connected instantly and worked very fast. With the limitations of Kit Kat you can no longer write to the external SD card. The work around for this "security feature" was supplied by a quick response from the programmer.
Saves me having to connect my phone via cable to transfer pictures and files. File transfers couldn't be easier. Really easy to setup and works perfectly. I love the simple interface, which is functional without being overkill, allowing me to see what is going on. I have it setup as a bookmark in my file browser, so files are just a single click away. Running on Marshmallow (6.0.1).
The fastest I achieved the highest speeds with this FTP server, by a vast marign, and I've tried many. Works flawlessly. An option to see the plain text password would be appreciated though. Also a general "WIFI" option in allowed connections types, instead of listing current wifi connections. Edit: Now I saw there is a problem with timezones. All file times displayed in the ftp client are shifted by 3 hours compared to other ftp servers where this is not an issue. Please fix the timezones issue.
Simple but great It does what it says it does. Using a Nexus 6 coming from a Galaxy Note II, I miss my SD card a little bit. Instead of USB mass storage, modern android phones use MTP, which isn't very reliable for me. This FTP server does a great job with handling my file transfers. I have yet to encounter any reliability issues. The only thing I wish it had was maybe SFTP as an option especially for FTP over the internet, since FTP is not a secure protocol. Great app! Would recommend.
Best android FTP server I've found Has features others don't, like enabling only for certain networks. It doesn't support to have wildcard support for mget. It simply says that the file does not exist. Would be helpful for some of my needs, but overall still a solid FTP server.
