How to Setup and Use FTP Server on Android

There are many ways to transfer data from your Android device to PC. For instance, you can use the traditional USB method, Bluetooth, or apps like Xender and ShareIt. But, do you know that you can also transfer files from your Android device to PC or vice versa using File Transfer Protocol (FTP)?

is a network protocol for transferring files from one location to another on the Internet. The two locations in FTP are referred to as Client and a Server. The Client requests the files from a Server.

File transfer using FTP can take place between two computers, one mobile device and a computer, or a cloud account and a computer.

 

You may have heard the term FTP when someone is talking about a website. We usually use FTP to transfer website files from our computer to the hosting server. However, it can also be used to transfer files between two local computers or any other two devices connected via the same network.

FTP ON MOBILE

FTP is a simple way to transfer files from your Android device – mobile or tablet – to a PC wirelessly on a local network. Here, your Android device acts as a server and your PC is the client.

In this post, we’ll tell you how to use FTP on your Android phone to transfer files to PC.

This method doesn’t require any USB cable or even Bluetooth. The only requirement for FTP on Android is that your Android device and PC should be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If you don’t have the same Wi-Fi network, you can create a hotspot and then use FTP.

 

Please keep in mind, Wi-Fi connections or same network doesn’t mean that you should have a working Internet connection. They are generally used alternatively but they differ in their meaning. Even if the Internet is not working and you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can still use FTP to transfer files.

You can use FTP for three things:

 

To access your Android phone’s files on your PC via Wi-Fi without using USB

To send and receive files between Android and PC

You can also perform actions such as copy, move, delete, rename, etc. on your Android files from your PC.

HOW TO USE FTP ON ANDROID

To transfer files between an Android device and a Windows PC via FTP, you need to download a third-party FTP server from Google Play Store on your Android device. Some brands like Mi have a built-in FTP feature. We have given the detailed instructions separately for Mi devices below.
