  1. Gary Hughes-avatar

    Downloaded Total Command for the umpteenth time, but this time added the FTP Plugin. Hw still no joy. Couldn't get it to work at all. There needs to be some simple instructions to go alongside the app, so that potential users like me can get them to work.

  2. Michal Hodina-avatar

    apk Great tool, on previous phone worked perfectly now I am not able to create to configure conection, it's just create unconfigured conection which I am not able to change

  3. Nikita Bakli-avatar

    android I see notification of connection even if already closed folder with ftp. Need disconnect button when i see this notification (swipe down from top).

  4. Piotr S-avatar

    ftp client total commander Ver. 2.30 works well. New service ver. 2.40 hungs up after stopped when try to reconnect and there is problem to kill it. Downgraded to 2.30

    ftp client total commander download It doesn't show the hidden folders (names starting with a dot)...

    secure ftp plugin total commander It woul be nice to specify a remote starting directory; CWD directory doesn't work

    ▪️Always asks Download+Open with or Download+Edit. Should've kept "don't ask again" option there. ▪️Some files won't even complete download (encountered that prob with other apps as well though) ▪️For videos, it should've played them as link video, not from temporary folder. Because downloading the whole thing requires more time.. There were a few bugs more! & Add the note that it only connecta to ftp server, do not establish one.

  8. Milan Mesi-avatar

    After update do not work. On existing (old) ftp shortcut stuck on "getting directory" screen. On create new connection after entering a name exit and create only empty shortcut. When click properties on shortcut do nothing I try to clear data and cache and uninstall/install TC and plugin with no success. Tested on android 9, Xiaomi max3. Update! Finally I get it to work!. Problem was in apps permissions. Btw total commander is top for windows but not for android.

  9. Lionel Olivier-avatar

    I was 20 years old when I used the software of Christian Ghisler for the first time in my life. It was so much better than any Windows product at that time. I am now 50 and still his software beats any similar product in the market. Respect!

  10. L-avatar

    Perfect for my purposes, running on Android 9. For those who don't have the config details popup window on new phones (Android 8+),try: Go to Settings/Manage Apps/TotalCmd-FTP/Other permissions/Start in background, tick. =>Let the plugin start in background. That did the trick for me.

  11. lackomalacko-avatar

    Can't configure the ftp connection. If I want to make a new connection it asks for a name and nothing happens, properties window does not do anything, eventually the whole tcmd crashes... Not the thing I was expecting.

  12. Fabio Rosada-avatar

    When I want to copy something from my pc to my phone it asks me if I want to download + open or download + edit and it saves the file in a temporary folder and deletes it right after. I can't figure out how to just copy a file and chose where to save it on my phone

  13. YeapGuy-avatar

    Awful. There are so many basic things done badly in the plugin. For example, you can't edit connections. Once you create it, you can either connect to it or delete it. The plugin also fails to read files from the server after some time and I have to reconnect to the FTP.

  14. Mr.Kleiner-avatar

    The configuration window doesn't popup. 3 stars because it worked on my previous phone.

  15. Zhoro Marinov-avatar

    I dislike strongly this application. Every opening of File commander is preceded by percictent offer to go paid. I wonder why I cannot uninstall it. If it is part of Sony accompanying software in my Experia Z5 then it should not try to push me to pay for it.

  16. Without My name-avatar

    Without My name


    Does not work. I can not configure connection because configure window doesnt show up

  17. Bogdan Serban-avatar

    I never got it to work. I added all the details and it says offline when connecting. Other clients work just fine.

  18. Y4kuzi-avatar

    No proper sftp support. Can only login with a password, which is highly discouraged. Can't even login with private key.

    no clear documentation, no clues, no error messages. Does this work at all in 8.1? I doubt it. No idea how to get this working. Where to set up a connection to a server?

    Good File Manager with many plug-in Apps.

  21. Paul Greet-avatar

    Works well with my windows 8.1 phone. Tested with Windows PCs and android tablets. Highly useful!

  22. KvantaNet-avatar

    it does not work. can not setup connection...

  23. Florian B.-avatar

    Very good :) One request, ipv6 support like the SMB module got few days ago would be nice :)

  24. Guy Ericsson-avatar

    What is there to say? Only 1 thing - TotalCommander #1

  25. F. Eros-avatar

    It works as intended. Very easy to use.

    Most useful add-on for TC. You'll love it. It broke two times in 3 years (didn't show folders) but an update fixed the problem very fast. Awesome App! 5 Stars

  45. chris golchert-avatar

    Only worked ONCE. Now it will connect but not show folders or files no matter what settings. Reinstall no help. Just displays ~> in the ftp root. Empty when forced into other folders through login path.

  46. Karoly Lonich-avatar

    Best ever. The only ftp client I found in the playstore that was able to handle TLS session reuse server request.

    Best plugin

  63. Warren L-avatar

    It definitely works. It connects, I'm able to view folders and files on a server and download them. But only on a wifi connection. It does nothing when I'm on a data connection. Nothing besides sitting there that is. I can't connect what so ever. I know it's not my connection, because I've done this while using another app. I'd Rather stick with this though. If there is something I'm missing, hopefully someone can point me to a fix.

  64. Martin Er-avatar

    For me this is a very basic, but still unfinished plugin, a bit slow, uploads files with unstable speed, and doesn't delete local files, while moving to remote server.

  65. cowcreekgeek-avatar

    So close to perfect, it's scary ... works flawlessly, intuitively designed; absolutely IDEAL app for ftp: Integrity of data transmitted ALWAYS trumps speed of transfer (and it only took a minute or two to figure out ~;-)

  66. Jonathan Wright-avatar

    The user interface just isn't self explanatory. It doesn't seem to behave like a Linux or Windows user would expect an ftp client to behave.




    It gets the job done copying across the LAN / Samba Shares, but I don't find the user interface very intuitive. If I click the arrow at the bottom expecting it to copy a file I selected in the left window, to the right... it doesn't do that... instead, it expands and collapses the left wing. There is no mouse over dialog boxes to explain what the icons on the bottom row do, you have to hold your breathe and click them by chance to figure out what they do, as they are not labeled at all. Overall, the interface is kind of a mystery. It should be a lot simpler, with the two windows side by side, and you can drag and drop or copy files back and forth between windows, and easily create new folders and rename or delete files, all without having to guess what you are doing... but confirmed with real words what you are doing... so there is no guesswork.

  88. István Máté-avatar

    I have a working ftp server behind a router, to which I connect through ssh, I do a dynamic (socks5) port forward, and set the ftp connection in TC FTP to a passive connection over the local socks5 proxy. Connection is established, however I never got over the LIST command. I have tried multiple ssh clients. I will give higher rating if this gets fixed. Edit: socks proxy support still doesn't work.

  89. Colin L-avatar

    When editing ftp properties, on nexus 4. Is totally unusable.

  90. Pawel K-avatar

    An already top file explorer this extension makes it even better with the ability to connect to all network share paths and be able to use your phone to do transfers. No longer needing a usb to pc interface cable. Works flawlessly everytime.

  91. anon ymous-avatar

    Found it didn't disconnect from server, even when it flashed that it did. It does have support for large files, haven't tried transfering yet but other clients I've tried so far can't even show them.

    Works well and I love it it gives you the control back keep up the great work always kymbrickie

    Took a lot of time setting up all my ftp sites. When I needed them, gone. Connection list is empty. Thought this was going to be a solution for some productivity, bummed this is epic failure.
