See more: Python FTP
I have the android FTPserver app running on my android mobile under Tethering mode. I connected to my mobiles network from my laptop and tried to connect to mobile via FTP to access few files. I wrote a python code that uses the ftp connection to transfer files but I am unable to perform simple connection.
 
I keep getting this error
in windows:
server.gaierror: [Errno 11004] getadderinfo failed 
 
in linux:
socket.gaierror: [Errno -2] Name or service not known
 
I searched so many places but never found a proper solution. All I could findout was people suggesting to check the firewall. I checked the firewall settings and everything and still I get the problem.
 
When I use a client software (filezilla) it does get connected.
 
I am a newbie to python could someone possibly tell me where I am going wrong?
 
here is my simple connecting code:
import os
from ftplib import FTP
 
ftp = FTP("192.168.43.1,5002")
ftp.login("usrid","pwd")
 
I am unable to connect to a general ftp test site, Here is the code for that:
from ftplib import FTP
 
ftp = FTP('ftp.cwi.nl')
ftp.login("anonymous","anonymous@")
ftp.retrlines('LIST')
