Thanking you in advance for your time,

I can't download files using FTP.

Using CoreFTP I can connect with the credentials:
Server: hairofthedog.dreamhost.com
User: testftpsc
Password: 2020FTPtest #


Logger connected to: samsung SM-A305G

Hi.
What is the exact problem? You receive an error when you run the program?
The Net library is listed and selected in the library manager? If not you will have to download it.


Also I would put ftp initialization in a try catch block. And I would check the is
B4X:
Try
    ftp.PassiveMode = True
    ftp.Initialize("ftp", "hairofthedog.dreamhost.com", lcFtpPuerto, "testftpsc", "2020FTPtest#")
    If Not(ftp.IsInitialized) Then
        Log("Not able to initialize ftp...")
        Return
    End If
Catch
    Log(LastException)
End Try
Andreas.

Also, you might need to add this to your manifest so non-ssl connections can be made:

B4X:
SetApplicationAttribute(android:usesCleartextTraffic, "true")

Thanks for your time.

I already updated the zip of the original post.

I also tried the above recommendations and it still does NOT work, always gives the error:

android.system.ErrnoException: connect failed: ETIMEDOUT (Connection timed out)

Question, is CoreFTP an app running on the same phone as this test app?

Do you have admin access to the ftp server you are trying to download from? If so, maybe looking at the FTP logs on the server might give us a hint on what the problem is.

CoreFTP runs on a PC.
I installed an FTP application from the store and it does NOT work on the phone.

the server log says: (and i have no idea what it means)

The above error looks like a script is used to generate the server log and there is an error with the script, preventing it from displaying the actual log files.

I would contact your hosting provider to have this script error fixed, then you should be able to see the FTP logs and hopefully figure out what is going wrong.
