Implict/Explict FTPS does not work with FilaZilla Servers in this app When testing this application with my FileZilla server through implict, then explicit connection methods with the correct ports, encoding, etc for each method, my file server closed the connection. I'm assuming this is due to how this app does not acknowledge/accept the certificate when the server sends it, which is possibly why the server closes the connection. In general, plain FTP connections work perfectly without any hiccups, but FTPS fails with this app.
I've been using this for about a year now and I love it! I've tried other FTP client apps, but always seemed to have one problem or another with them. AndFTP works great! The hard part of this is getting your router to forward the proper port to (in my case) my home server. After that it's a breeze. Works great, is fast and supports SFTP and other SSH protocols.
Downloads fail Downloads constantly fail unless I leave the download screen up the entire time. The moment I try to look at any other app while the download is taking place, the download fails. That means you have to babysit the download, which is frustrating. With that said, it seems to perform better than any other FTP client for Android that I have tested. It just means there is a big need for better performing FTP clients on Android.
Essentially this app works a treat. The issue I encountered was sharing multiple (58) images from a Nexus 5 camera folder onto a Suse 13.2 system where the delivered images were missing considerable content. Finally, I had to zip them and then the images arrived intact.
Wasn't compatible with my setup My FTP network runs through my router, and i could not get the hostname to have a "/xxx" at the end. It would simply delete it from my FTP profile! Seems like a huge design flaw not to give the user complete control over something as fickle as FTP software.
Among the best SFTP and SCP transfer is really slow, like all the other similar apps I tried. At least FTPS is reasonably fast. Many useful settings and a clear user interface. Sometimes the file transfer crashes if the focus is on another app.
- Minor bugs fixed.
