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.

    Works like a charm, easy to install, set up and launch within 60 seconds, works flawlessly with forwarded ports. Great thing if you want to get past the silly MTP mode and get files to/from wherever inside of your device as long as android allows you to.

    Would be perfect but I can't move files between internal and external storage, I have to move the files to my computer and then to the external SD card.

    Can't write files and folders anymore since I upgraded from JellyBenas to Kitkat (using Galaxy Note 3 N9005) (and yes, the "read only" option is unchecked!)

    Am transferat cu FileZilla foarte usor, fara sa ma mai leg cu cablul USB la PC. Am reusit sa setez si folderul de pornire. Probabil poti seta ca folder de pornire root-ul, in asa fel incat sa intri si pe card si pe memoria device-ului. 5 stele pentru mom
