primitive ftpd

FTP server

A simple FTP and SFTP (SSH file transfer) server. Allows to exchange files with other machines over WiFi. No more USB cable searching. Runs without root privileges and is not started when device boots: Control yourself when the server runs. However, while it runs it prevents standby to avoid long uploads and downloads to abort.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
