    “enables the users to download, upload or delete files from FTP.”. How about renaming files? I was surprised that the only FTP server for Windows Phone 8 actually does not support renaming files.

  2. Nice to see that FTP Server Application is being developed for MeeGo and sailfish operating systems. Just having some minor issues for allowing SSH-connection.
