    sftp plugin for total commander android sftp: new file can not create.

  3. Abhinav Pandey-avatar

    sftp plugin total commander how to use How to use it.. when I click on new connection it only ask me for a name and no credential or other parameters!? Edit: you were correct about the issue with the Xiaomi issue. I own a Xiaomi redmi note 7 and popup permission was causing the problem with the plugin. Working fine now.. kudos to the dev!! ❤️

    sftp plugin total commander 64 bit Good consept, wish it wouldn't disconnect after a minute or so. Could be great, if it could be relied on & had an intigrated terminal emulator. I would gladly pay for a plugin that would let me securely login to a server. And use a terminal in whatever directory I was in. Sometimes U need to administer to a server. When U aren't near a computer.

  5. Sergey Sobolev-avatar

    sftp plugin for total commander Doesn't work on my redmi note 7 with Android 9 - after I try to establish a new connection it never finishes. Worked fine though on prev. phone.

    sftp plugin total commander download Failed to reconnect after access point drop and reconnects... annoying. I have to completely close the app and restart it... I tried to give my device a fixed IP to see if this would fix it... It seems that after being disconnected it simply won't reconnect...

  7. Ákos Várady-avatar

    sftp plugin total commander x64 Really?! Local ip addresses cannot be used?

  8. Justin Uwalaka-avatar

    Fast, good. Would've given it 5 stars instead of 4, only because it does not preserve file timestamps when copying/moving files from mobile to PC (like another certain popular File Explorer on Android can)

  9. Kiren Rawatlal-avatar

    Used to work really great but now disconnects after a few minutes into watching a movie on a shared drive.

  10. Jakub Smulski-avatar

    Very buggy. Prone to errors that break the app's functionality completely until its' data is purged.

  11. Nick Crouch-avatar

    Excellent plugin for Total Commander on Android. Works perfectly for me.

  12. Ben Kaesser-avatar

    I know of no other android app for SFTP transfers that works. this works 100 percent

    Works nice, but silently damages files larger that 2GB. There goes my video :(

    Work as expected

    Fantastic !!!

  24. John Harrison-avatar

    I was able to see how to cut and paste files on the server, but not how to save them down to my phone. The only options were Download & Open or Download & Edit. The Open deleted the temp file after closing & I didn't want to edit a PDF file. I went back to File Manager +

  25. Jeroen Baert-avatar

    I use this daily. Excellent plugin.

    Could be possible to implement timeout option? Some servers need more time to log in, so I would need to increase timeout. JuiceSSH can log in, while Total Commander SFTP is timing out.

  27. Igor Farago-avatar

    At first it looks like login succeeded, but it fails to do anything afterwards. No file listing, nothing at all. Turbo Client worked with no hassle, but it's not free for more than one server.

  28. Tibor Nagy-avatar

    It's broken. It successfully authenticates with my server however it doesn't show any file listing, acts like nothing happened. It doesn't show any errors either. I'm sure my server is fine, JuiceSSH connects to it flawlessly.

    As others have mentioned, SFTP is FTP via SSH that works with Public-Key cryptography (aka Public-Private key pair). This plug-in seems to be FTPS. Is there a way to use public keys? Having an app work as advertized is the least requirement to get a good review. Once this gets fixed so will the rate.

  30. Fuzzilla-avatar

    Just like all the other TC add-on's, this one is guaranteed to please. Securely move files using FTP without a seprate app. Because it's TC it's easy to use.

  31. Belldandu-avatar

    You use a private (id_rsa) and public (id_rsa.pub) key for openssh not a damn pem file for openssl

  32. Rio Wong-avatar

    Slow copy speed, doesn't keep copying during device screen off, foreground copy big files occupying TC to do other work

  33. Spencer Jones-avatar

    Doesn't work. Seems to connect but shows no files/dirs

  34. Ben Tobin-avatar

    Doesn't do long transfers in the background. Total deal breaker for large files or slow connections.

  35. Herman Yanush-avatar

    I think that utf-8 encoding should be the default one. Almost nobody uses ascii.

  36. Cristian Beskid-avatar

    Doesn't support symbolic links.

  37. elijah jolly-avatar

    This IS NOT SFTP. SFTP is ftp over ssh (pub/priv key pairing) this is not SFTP. THIS IS NOT SFTP. THIS IS NOT SFTP. THIS IS NOT SFTP. THIS IS NOT SFTP. Please fix this? This app is otherwise absolutely perfect!

  38. Jon Izarzugaza-avatar

    Not working...stays connecting forever, hanging the app.

  39. BIN Y-avatar

    Please support openssl private key!!!

    Can't copy files

  47. Joe E-avatar

    The file transfers seem to bog down severely for a few seconds, very frequently. Another SFTP client did not have this problem. The lack of file transfer speed indication is a real sore spot for me. I want to know how fast my transfers are going. Other than those complaints, the plugin works well.

    Some systems use two factor authetication (Google Authenticator for e.g.), which this plugin cannot handle, but would be good :)

  49. Shudman C-avatar

    The only reason I've stopped using this is because of the lack of support for ssh keys. Other than that, its seems alright.

  50. Duraid Madina-avatar

    Sftp broken.

  51. A Google user-avatar

    Can it work with ssh generated key? Great job developer on all tc addons.

  52. Shane Thoms-avatar

    Works, that is it!

    But it would be nicer to be able to sftp over onionland...

    Great plugin. Especially useful with pubkey authentification

  55. A Google user-avatar

    Perfect. No more tedious file operations in a tiny ssh terminal window. This plugin works just as expected, giving you a local-like experience on a remote file system. Great!

  58. Darrin Cady-avatar

    Good for forming a new RSS network to blink the Gov. Like they've been blinking me 4 years. Freedom is just another word for defect

    You have to sit there & manually tick off every frigging file that is done or needs to be resumed one-at-a-time, renders this absolutely worthless.

  60. Paulius Vitkus-avatar

    Plugin works as expected. But I would like for it to support newer ssh cryptographic algorithms like ecdh for key exchange and sha2 for hash/hmac.

  61. Stonie Malony-avatar

    just excellent as the total commander (everywhere)

    Absence of this plugin was only reason why I have not been using TC on my phone as I did on ms windows years ago. Great closed source software, Ghisler.
