Just go into the settings --> storage and there is an option to enable the built-in FTP server.
I saw that and it identified one of my PCs as a target. I have yet to experiment to see what (if anything) I can do with it. Pretty neat concept though.
If you want a less permanent access, File Expert has both an HTTP and FTP servers that can be enabled while you're using the program.
Wait so is their any way for the media player app to use the ftp protocol to fetch movies (FTP client mode) or does the FTP only work as a server and not a client. Also how secure is this random password it generates, a generic username of FTP and a short numeric password is something but not a lot.
Either way, its depends on which app you use but not Sony's Media Player. If you use the built-in FTP server for Google TV then you customize the username and password. File Expert uses a static credentials but its only accessible while you have the option open.
Separate names with a comma.
