How to connect with Ftp server using USB cable:

This can useful when you have USB cable and not network available.
1) On your phone go to Settings->Applications->Development and set option "USB debugging".
2) Connect your phone to your PC using USB cable.
3) Start adb server. On your PC run command "adb start-server".
adb is a program that you can find on android sdk. Usually you will find it on android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.
4) Forward needed ports from your PC to your phone. On your PC run command "adb forward tcp:2221 tcp:2221"
You will need to repeat this step for all ftp server and passive ports configured in your phone. It will be easier if you use a small range of passive ports.
With this, any connection in your pc to will be forwarded to your phone in port 2221.
5) Run Ftp server in your phone, open settings and in "Network interfaces" select "Loopback (" or "All"
6) Start ftp server.
7) In your PC connect your ftp client to (port might be different, it depends on your Ftp Server configuration).

Connections in this mode need to be always started by PC so only passive mode is available when using USB connection.

Permissions needed:


Network permission to enable server to open network communication with ftp clients.


Enables ftp server write received files from ftp clients on sdcard.


Keeps phone wake only while server is running. If phone is not wake connections to ftp server can fail.

    It works perfect and simple, no crazy permissions. I bought the ad free just to support those involved in making it.

    Have been getting bad speed results in favor to other and free servers and I thought it was the server. Now I see good results from this too. Maybe it's the wifi connectivity in a busy wifi environment. More options and a ftp log window would be welcomed. Still performs worse than other and free ftp servers, unfortunately. Compared on after another several times.

    Transferring files to and from my LG Optimus 3 II and my Desktop PC over WiFi is a breeze. Using this app, and Linux Mint 16 Xfce's Thunar file manager pointing at each device, it was just a simple matter of a drag and drop action.

    Works perfectly as expected. Simple and straight forward. It does what is says. Money well spent.
