how does one setup FTP?

6 posts in this topic

what I want to do is transfer files from my Windows 7 pc to the vega, but really have no idea what to install on either machine, or how to set it up

I guess I want a FTP Server on the PC, but don't really know how to progress any further. Can anyone help please (I once set up Filezilla to transfer files to my Popcorn Hour, but can't remember how I did it)

Many thanks.

I use SwiFTP on my HTC Desire which is an ftp server (available in the market), then use FileZilla on my PC to connect to it. I'm guessing it'll work on the vega too.

thanks for that

setup Filezilla on pc and SwiFTP on the Vega.

In Filezilla from the PC, I can 'see' the folders on the Vega, but it won't let me access them

not at home but the error was something like 'logon error 50 or chroot error'.

any idea what I'm doing wrong?

thanks.

Personally I just use Astro + Astra SMB (SMB is the protocol that Windows file sharing uses) I can the read and write directly to an shared directory on my PC from my Vega.

For general "Keeping stuff on both machines" I use dropbox.

IMHO FTP is a bit cumbersome for basic file transfer.

I've been using Dropbox, but was hoping for a faster transfer of video files to the Vega - will give the smb app a go tonight

And there's also the WebServe application that turns your mobile device into a mini web server (over wireless only) that you can connect to from any browser on a local PC and manage file download and upload that way.
