Everything was file, but suddenly I am getting an error while trying to access default ftp service via wifi. Error: "The folder '' is read only because the proxy server is not set up to allow full access"

No proxy is set up on wifi nither on my android nor windows PC. And, I am on same network

Windows PC warning Android wifi proxy settings

  • That rather looks like a Windows issue (after all, it's your Windows machine throwing that error, so it must be talking about Windows settings). Do you have another (Android) device to verify if the error occurs when you try to access it from there?

    Verified using another phone, not a windows problem! Feb 18 '17 at 8:52
  • Thanks! As that's an important detail, may I suggest you edit your question and include this fact (best with a screenshot from that phone showing a similar error)? Another fact you should mention: what kind of FTP server is running on that device? Best include a link to that app as well.
