How do I *disconnect* from an FTP source?

Albo P. Fossa 8 years ago • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 8 years ago 2
Superb product! My FTP connection was flawless and blazing fast. One easy question I don't find covered in the docs: how do I break an FTP connection once I've finished copying files?

Is there are way to keep the WebDAV server active after opening a program like Pages?

What I want to be able to do is use Textastic to gain access to my files stored in Dropbox or on an FTP server. Most of these files will be text/programming files. Some of them will be .doc files that I would like to open in Pages. Opening is no problem with the 'Open In...' menu item. But when I want to save them the Textastic WebDAV server is no longer running since I opened Pages and I can't save the file back. I would be great if the WebDAV server was still available, though I don't know if that's possible in iOS.

Hi das app sieht Mega aus. was ich noch gut finden würde ist eine Integration von Public Key. Dann wäre es für mich komplett einsatzfähig.
Ich würde mich um rückmeldung freuen

A simple webbrowser. To google something or check an uploaded script.

It would be really nice to set up XML post/get operations so that I could test in the iPad. Specifically, being able to post an XML file to
Google's API service and then receive the XML would allow for XML writing testing.

Special chars in search

Add special control characters like Line feed to search and replace so these can be added or removed en mass.

It would be nice to have another view, like the Preview function in HTML, to be able to see the printf's and enter scanf's.
