FTP on Android

David Brooks
There is old LiveCode discussion about issues related to ftp using Android
devices. Is there anything recent?

The app in question has no trouble uploading/downloading text files from a
Web site, and it can store/retrieve "local" files on whichever Mac/Windows
device it is installed.

Files CAN be downloaded using an http protocol (put URL("http://
xxxxxx.txt") into fld "XYZ") on Android.

As yet no upload strategy to the Web or local storage strategy has
succeeded.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Good to see you here, David.

FTP is too dangerous to use - passwords are sent in plain text.

What will be done with the files on the server?  If you already have
HTTP uploads working, what do you anticipate doing with FTP?

I think Splash21 method works very well.
