    So, for the longest time I tried to get

    working with iPhone and my home server (my problem was I was trying to use FTPS, instead of SFTP).  Using FileZilla I could always successfully connect using “require explicit FTP over TLS”:

    Based on this I figured it was an issue with the iPhone apps, I think it was error 425 (cannot build data connections).  Then I thought it was my , since I used , I figured maybe something was screwy – a draw back of bleeding edge geeky stuff, you question it.  Anyway, it was a port configuration issue by me.

    I needed to open port 22, not 21.  I also had to connect using different settings SFTP.

    As for iPhone client, I have tried a few; FTPOnTheGo, Files Connect, and Easy FTP.  Of them all I like FTPOnTheGo – I should probably look into the options again – considering iPad clients too.

    Since I originally stater this investigation and setup, I treated myself to a new router .  I might write a quick review on it actually…

    So I am on the search, I need to find a good application for port

    triggering.

    I use uTorrent for getting various content/distributions, however I

    don’t want traffic hitting my router when I am not using the

    application.  To get the best out of uTorrent you need to open a port on

    your router (port forward), but I don’t want that port to be open when

    my application is not running, so what’s the solution – port triggering.

    There is an application out there that will work ,

    but it is not supported in Windows 7.  The basic idea is that when Port

    Trigger sees the application of choice (uTorrent) running, it will

    intermittently send a request to a port.  This port request can then be

    set up at your router to open the configured port for your application

    connection.  Then, when the application is not running Port Trigger no

    longer ‘pings’ the trigger port, and the router will not open the port

    for the application.

    If anyone has any suggestions for a Windows 7 supported application,

    please get in touch!
