Has the call ever come telling you that permissions on one file are preventing your entire website from working properly? LyseSoft has a solution for your Android based phone.

AndFTP allows you to upload and download files from your FTP server to your phone and to change file permissions of files on the remote server. Its clean, functional interface allows for the storage of login information for multiple FTP servers. Do you need a file on Server A that you know is in Server B? Log in to Server B, download the file to your G1, and then upload the file to Server A. Changing permissions on a remote file is as simple as touching to select the file, pressing the Menu button, and touching Permissions. Changing the permissions is as simple as selecting the appropriate check box.

    Using an Android tablet, I get a message about “ .host is unresolved ftp 21″. When I look back at the configuration page, ftp 21 has overwritten the original server address that I entered.
