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.

    I wanted an app to share a directory over WiFi so I can browse / download files off my phone via a web browser on my pc. This way i dont have to plug in with USB, and dont need to install anything on my PC. This does exactly that. Combined with http-server (node.js) on my PC, I'm wireless!

    USB OTG write permisions would make it even beter (5+ stars). Now only read works with USB OTG on my Olimex A20 board. Able to create files and folders in internal memory, but unable to delete folders. Anyway- nice simple to use app. Does what it should :-)
