FTP – A List of Suitable Windows Mobile Applications
The following Windows Mobile FTP clients can be used on either Windows Mobile 5 or 6. Some can be used on older versions, and all listed here are open source or freeware.
Total Commander - Possibly the most popular Windows Mobile FTP client, Total Commander offers more than just FTP, as its true purpose is file management. It features file comparison, tabbed interface and two-pane view.
Neo FTP - This open source FTP client can be used in conjunction with other apps from the neoTools series (also available from the same site) and offers straightforward FTP, with a tabbed interface to switch between local and remote computers.
Orneta FTP - If you’re looking to transfer files in as few clicks as possible, Orneta FTP has an elegant interface that will allow you to do just that. The developers also claim that this is future proof (unlike many Windows Mobile applications) – it is designed to work on any interface and screen resolution found on a Windows Mobile phone.
Mobile FTP Client - Of all of these FTP Windows Mobile applications, Mobile FTP Client is the one that is most like a desktop application. Featuring a site manager (for storing credentials for multiple FTP accounts), passive and active connection types and multiple file transfer, this app is also a very small 200KB.
Free FTP Client - Offering drag and drop and copy and paste, the beautifully named Free FTP Client also allows users to CHMOD files and directories on the remote server.
Although you might have successfully installed your FTP client, keep in mind the fact that your mobile network might not accept connections to be established using the method. As such Windows Mobile FTP might be restricted to WiFi connections only.
