    I'm trying to set up FTP so my phone can connect to my computer over wifi. So far I used FTP server, SwiFTP and Samba with no luck. The FTP server starts and gives me an ftp address and port. When I try and connect through my computer which shares the same router, it wont connect. I've used DMZ and disabled the firewall on the router, but still no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

    Why not try the app called "Samba Filesharing". Works pretty well for sharing out the sdcard.

    Hi, I tried Samba as well as FTP server, SwiFTP. The server runs on the phone with an address off my router, but I can't connect through win7. Any ideas? I even placed phone in dmz and turned off firewall. Still can't connect for some reason;0(
