palmFTPServer is a somewhat RFC-compatible FTP server for Palm OS that implements the standard RETR, STOR, STOU, PASV, PORT, USER, PASS, LIST, REST,HELP, SYST, QUIT, CWD, PWD, MKD, CDUP, RMD, DELE commands, and also the non-standard SIZE command.
It does not implement, however, ACCT, STRU, and any TYPE other than I or A (which are required by the RFC but not really used very often).
It will allow you to access all of your mounted VFS cards and your RAM & ROM databases, and also upload files to cards and PRC/PDB files to RAM. Think of it as "Wireless Drive Mode" app.
It has been developed using Handheld Basic ++ & a bunch of native APIs.
I've succesfully tested it on a real T|X device with a bluetooth connection (and also with a WiFi connection) and SmartFTP, Firefox, MSIE, and WinExplorer FTP clients. It boots on a m130, but didn't test it as I don't have avalaible network connection. Seems to work on simulator, though.
Note:This is mostly an experiment. It is a foreground app!, it is not a background application. There's no security at all, and it's surely full of bugs. So test it if you want to. I find it very useful when I forget the USB cable at home and I want to transfer some files through a wifi link to my card.
There is a "Read Only" switch in the Preferences Dialog for simple security.
