    Is it possible to SSH into the Atrix, I would like to be able to FTP some files over (running Linux and can't seem to mount for media-sync). I can ping it and see it connected to my router.

    Ok, I installed the SwiFTP app, and am able to connect from my laptop. But I don't have any read or write permissions on the phone. Is there a specific user id/pwd I need to use to connect with?

    I don't think, unless you're specifcally accessing system/OS type areas where you would need superuser/root access? Otherwise I'd assume the /sdcard location would be fine.

    I will say I have NOT installed this yet on my Atrix, but I had it up and running on my [root'ed] Captivate.

    OK, just installed it :D Man, do I love OTA, remote web installs!!

    I'll check it out in just a sec...

    OK, more than a second :D Had to make some stir fry, deploy code and get on deck for Justified.

    Anway...

    I installed it (again, via the web interface), ran it, configured name and password, fired it up. Broadcasting on an internal IP (WiFi) and defaults to port 2121.

    Connected via FileZilla and was able to read/write, no problems. In fact, I was trying a wallpaper resize to respond to somebody else, and used SwiFTP to move the JPG over to /mnt/sdcard.

    I am root'ed FYI.

    Since I don't have a SD card yet, what folder on the phone would I want to drop music files into?

    I stick mine under /sdcard/media/MP3

    FYI, the internal "user" storage for Android devices is /sdcard (it'll show as /mnt/sdcard, where the OS mounts the volume)

    Pretty much all media is picked up by the media scanner, so anywhere will work.

    So I need an SD card in order to put my own files on, and the internal storage is out of bounds. Just tried to ftp a file to /mnt/sdcard/media/audio and although there are files there, I can't write to that directory.

    I want to edit some system files in motorola atrix 4g. I can ftp but I am not able to edit the system files. I have rooted my phone, so that i have access to super user. I installed Terminal emulator but then it has no vi, pico editor.

    So i thought up to ssh my phone to edit system files. I tried to telnet, ssh to atrix, but it says connection refused.

    So any way to do this job.
