    I don't really have an answer to help you with uploading from a Mac to your mobile device, but I had the same problem. Uploads from the Mac are blocked for some reason. My solution was to send the file I wanted to upload to a Linux machine (Ubuntu 14.04 running Gnome). On the Linux machine the upload action to the iPad was essentially the same as used on the Mac. On the "Places" menu that opens a file manager menu there is a "Connect to Server" menu item. Because this worked on the Linux machine the problem is apparently due to some security restrictions in place on the Mac. I, too, would be interested in a solution for the Mac if someone has one. Although I haven't verified that it works, I think that you can also do the transfer via the Windows 7 or greater file manager.

    I have a general question about PythonistaFTP. I used finder on the mac to start an ftp session to verify that dgelessus' suggestion worked. After closing the link I noticed that a log of the communication was printed to the console and that a new session was started and, after each file retrieved from Pythonista on the iPad, that session was then closed. I also noticed that at the start of the connection it seemed like there were two identical sessions opened that were not closed until the end of the communication. Is this the way that PythonistaFTP is supposed to work? My limited knowledge is many years old, but in years gone by when I would manually use ftp, I would log in to the remote machine and keep the session open until I had moved all the files that I wanted. Only then would I log out of the session.

    That did the trick. Thanks for the suggestion. Perhaps Ole could add this suggestion to the instructions that are printed to the console when the server starts to aid other neophytes such as myself.

    I am a real neophyte regarding networking so this may sound like a stupid question. I copied the PythonistaFTP file to my iPad and it appears to work correctly. But when I try to connect as guest to my macbook pro the connection attempt times out without actually connecting. Does something in the wireless router need to be changed to enable the connection to go through? I have previously successfully made connections between my computer and portable devices on port 8080 without needing to configure the router, but perhaps port 2121 is different.
