    I don't believe any ROMs currently have FUSE (Userspace Filesystem), which is what allows that to work. I feel like I saw FUSE mentioned in a changelog for CyanogenMod, but it could be a different fuse.

    I always hate it when instead of answering the question, someone says "Why would you want to do that?" Unfortunately I find myself in that position, so please accept my apology, and understand I ask this with all due respect.

    Why is it you wish to run an FTP server on a device with a weak processor, slow filesystem, slow network connectivity, etc.? Are there not other solutions [I don't know what the problem is, hence my questions] that would meet your need?

    My guess is you want to have files on your /sdcard which you can pull off anywhere there's WiFi and your droid, via FTP.

    Very interesting question. It would be great to mount a remote filesystem. Perhaps I will ask cvpcs if this is capable.

    I think you misunderstood the question. "Mount an FTP server" doesn't mean to run an ftp server on the droid - it means connecting to a remote ftp server and mounting it like a device, which is a pretty reasonable thing to want to do with a phone. Like a general-purpose version of how the gallery connects to picasa web albums, email, or anything else that is primarily stored "in the cloud", but is accessed as if it were local.

    He is right. What I pretty much want to do is take C:\awesomefiles on my home computer and mount it as a ftp link to /sdcard/mnt/awesomefiles on my droid.

    I dont need an ftp server on the droid. The ftp server would be on my home computer.

    I use AndFTP. You can specify remote directory as well as local.

    Check out CyanogenMod 5 - I think it has fuse included. CM6 doesn't, yet, I know that.

    EDIT: I just found out that p3droid kernels have the fuse module, at least for Sapphire (cvpcs). Not sure about sshfs or ftpfs executables, though, they might need to be compiled for droid.
