    hello guys, i have tried so hard to FTP connect my PC to my Phone over 3G and LTE using FileZilla
    the FTP works fine on internal IP (when the two devices are connected to the same network)
    but when i switch to Mobile Data (3G or LTE) i cannot connect anymore
    see here :

    i have entered 100.116.227.214 and the port 2600 on FileZilla but i can never connect
    any ideas ?

    i have tried many many FTP servers and this one allows me to connect over 3G but in my case it is not working

    I've never tried to do that. Dropbox is so much easier.

    Sorry to say but you won't find much help on this. It's not a real world use. PC to phone FTP doesn't make sense with Dropbox, Google drive, OneDrive, etc when they have backwards syncing.

    To answer your question. You're running into SSL issues. It's a huge security vulnerability connecting to an IP address in a WAN so your IP address has ports blocked so people can't run packet sniffer programs or connect directly into them via telnet/ftp, by design.

    i can use Dynamic DNS also to hide my ip if it was a problem (i want to use it on my devices only)

    Are you trying to connect to a phone on cellular data from your home network?

    Patience is a virtue. As Mustang stated.....

    If anyone else has any other information they will add it when they have time.
