    Yes, they are all on my WiFi network.

    Well, I don't know. I tried looking into the firewall stuff, but I'm really not sure what it needs t look like.

    I do see FileZilla mentioned as allowed on a private network, and I added FTP in one area, and port 21 in another. If anyone has any idea what might be stopping it, I'm all ears.

    Got it! Thanks for the tip on setting up the Windows firewall. I Googled for some tips, and found a good description for enabling the port. I did that, and it still didn't work, so I used the same technique to enable FileZilla Server, and it works fine now.

    In case anyone else has this problem, and is on a Windows machine (I'm on a Win 7 box), here's what I did...

    Open Windows Firewall in Control Panel (select small icons to see it)
    Click Advanced Settings
    Click Inbound Rules
    Click New Rule
    Click Program radio button, then Next
    Browse to your server program's executable (FileZilla Server.exe in my case)

    Click Next again, and follow through the steps. I found I had to go through twice; once for Private and once for Domain.

    If it still doesn't work, run through again, but click Port instead of Program radio button, and choose TCP and port 21.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Thanks again for the GREAT app, pcworld!

    Well, I don't really know anything about OS X. You need to enter the IP address of your computer and the user name and password you specified when enabling FTP. You may have to activate some ports in the firewall first.
    Maybe others can jump in.
    thank you for your direction. I am able to access the ftp server through my router with IE, Chrome, the CMD window in Windows and a host of other apps. Message returned is unexpected reply from server. I am on a satellite network with high latency. Might that be a problem?

    @mrawlins:
    One user also reported a problem with an FTP server on a router. The issue was that the server didn't understand "LIST -a", which will be fixed with the next update.
    Can you e-mail me so I can send you a possible fix?

    How does one sort by date latest to oldest ? The default oldest to newest is kinda stupid, most people are after the latest not oldest files.
  7. #167  
    Also feature request,
    - search toolbar,
    - save all settings on exit ie last ftp directory, last sort settings

    Currently not possible, sorry. On the long term I've planned reverse order for all sort options.
    But with the next update the app will probably show the newest files first when sorting by modification date.

    1. Was already playing around with this a few months ago. Still on the todo-list
    2. the first would be difficult, the latter sounds doable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Hey pcworld, just purchased you app with the hopes I could use it to log into my Dlink security camera's FTP access via Telnet. I have all the settings entered correctly, but no joy so far.

    I access it with a freeware program from my laptop (Putty Portable) using this as the IP:

    xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:85 , port 23

    When connected, it asks me for the password. I enter it, and gain access to the command listing via the "help" text I then enter.

    FTPit doesn't seem to like the :85 port designation and responds with an "Unable to resolve host" error. Without it, I get the long spinning icon which eventually times out with "Failure with receiving network data. Please check the login data".

    I've tried all sorts of combinations, no joy.

    AHA! Just checked the Telnet settings in Putty. Appears to be "Active" instead of "Passive". I think I just answered my question.

    Any plans to provide active telnet soon?

    Please do include that. It would be a big improvement.

    @WyreNut:
    I guess that means the server is on port 23 and the client listens on port 85.
    I'm not sure when/if I'm going to implement active FTP. And if, it would only work on >= webOS 3.0.4 due to a bug in older webOS versions.
    (Note that the app description states the app only supports passive FTP currently.)

    I would pay for a client that supported sftp.

    Is this app limited to working only if the Touchpad is on the same WiFi network/LAN?

    I am having difficulties connecting from outside if not on the same LAN?

    No, it isn't. Of course you have to configure firewalls and port forwarding correctly.
    Are you able to connect to your FTP server using other FTP clients from outside your local network? What FTP server do you use?

    One user had a similiar issue (the server didn't understand "LIST -a"), there will be a fix for that with the next update.
    Could you e-mail me through the help menu so that I can send you a possible fix?
