    What am I missing ? I have it running but it shows my drive on the droid as empty ? use \sdcard, humm ?? I am lost here.

    I am really challenged. I got MyIP now where do I add the host name ? Site name, account name ? I don't know where to put it?? Not that it matters if I can't get to the sdcard

    TIA

    I'll add to this if I may. When using the FTP connection over 3G your IP displayed can changed after time. VZW assigns them via DHCP so when the lease is up, your phone gets a new IP. To get around this, use DynDNS from the market. Sign up with them and select a hostname to use with one of their domains.
    For example, one of their domains is getmyip.com and I selected droid as my host name. So now when I setup the ftp client I can enter droid.getmyip.com instead of the IP address. The app you install from the market sends your current 3G (public IP) address to your DynDNS account. So when it changes, it doesn't matter. I still use droid.getmyip.com.
