    I installed the swiftp app and can read only browse with FireFox but cannot figure out how to get a read/write connection with my ftp client.

    I have WS_FTP.

    Note: When I use the browser and add the instructed /sdcard at the end it fails. If I leave it off I can read.

    What do I enter and into what fields in my PC FTP client? I have experimented but cannot figure it out.

    Which if any goes into the Host Name/Address?

    I Take it I input the user ID and PW in the usual places and change my current remote port from 21 to 2121?
    Thanks

    I use FTPServer (phone) and Filezilla (computer) and it works great. So you may want to try that route. Just make sure under your wireless settings you select/check "use static IP" that way you won't have to worry about what your IP address is (set it once in your client and forget it).
