LoPy4 1.18.1.r1 AP Mode FTP Connect Port 21

  • I'm using a LoPy with firmware version 1.18.1.r1 and am trying to get it into AP mode in order to use FileZilla.

    I can get it into AP mode and connect my laptop to it. However there is nothing listening on port 21. Meaning that FileZilla cannot connect.

    When I do the same procedure on previous versions of the firmware (ie, 1.17..) I can connect no problem.

    I see other similar problems posted in the forums, but this seems to be pretty basic.

    I just talked to someone who is using FileZilla with version 1.18.1.r1, so it must be just me. However, it happens for me on two boards with version 1.18.1.r1. One with version 1.17 does not have the problem.

    This is the code I'm using to get into AP mode:

    wlan = WLAN(mode=WLAN.AP, ssid=ssid, auth=(WLAN.WPA2,pwd))

    (I have tried setting a static IP with ifconfig, but have same issue).

    Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

  • @caseyrodgers Hi, I've just tested this and it is working, so it could be one of your settings. Could you list your FileZilla config?
