Mebia FTP for iPhone Manual and Setup

Mebia FTP relies on you already having an FTP server up, running and tested.

If you already have an FTP server, or already know about FTP you can simply enter the FTP path, username and password in MediaTransfer for iPhone or iPad and you're off to the races.

If not, you will need to set one up for Mebia FTP to connect to. There are some great websites explaining how: 

If you are using WIndows 7, you may visit the "Learning IIS" site here to learn how to install and configuring FTP services in Windows 7. You essentially need to install FTP services, and then set up an FTP site as per their instructions.

Remember: To get into settings, swipe your finger from the bottom of the iPad or iPhone screen directly up to the top.

MediaTransfer Videos

The videos below walk you through the setup of your Mac or PC to allow MediaTransfer to send pictures and videos to your computer. After you have looked at the videos, there are detailed, step-by-step instructions for each setup as well. If you are having difficulty, please refer to Microsoft's instructions for turning on FTP on your PC.

MediaTransfer is an app for iPhone and iPad that uses the FTP protocol to copy your Pictures and Videos to a computer.

If you already have an FTP server set up on your Mac, PC or Linux box then all you need to do is fill in your ftp path, username and password and you are done. Have a look at section 3 below.

If you do not have FTP set up, then the sections below show you how to set up your Mac or PC for use with MediaTransfer.
