Hi,

What is a good, free android app. So I can SFTP into FreeBSD and transfer files back and forth (photos mostly)?

I prefer to connect from PC to android via FTP-protocol.

I have installed android app. It is FTP-server for android. I run it when I need to transfer data.

You can connect using any ftp-client. I like midnightcommander's embedded ftp client.

Better the server at the android side and the client where you have a better keyboard.
I have good experience with this:


It has also a sftp server. It does not run all the time, you run it for the time needed to do the transfer.
I also have a terminal installed:

Try to copy any file from BSD to Android, and try to copy it back on PC with different name,
Then check the integrity of the files comparing their md5/sha256 sums.
Run the command like md5 file1orig.mp3 file1andr.mp3 | less
Compare the summs of every file.
In case of different sums - set the 'binary mode' for your ftp-client.

I used specified application for many years, but I had no problems with music and photo transfer.

yes!
adding ftp> bin works. the static noise is gone.
