Question [Q] FTP Server on Android - Can't connect

So i've decided to install ftp server on android, so i wouldn't have to use a cable.

tried to connect using filezilla, and couldn't

Tried to ping the phone from my windows machine - "Destination host unreachable"
Tried to ping my windows maching from phone using "terminal emulator" - seems like it can't find the machine too

tried to ping my router from my phone - it works well.

Anyone has insight to share ?

thanks

Did you try unblocking the ftp port? Also, try using your outside IP, and see if you can ping that.
