Sending and receiving files via FTP

 It's been six months since the last activity on any group regarding
FTP, but there is still no post that explains how to solve the problem
with the stating "Unable to connect to server:
{0}" whenever trying to connect to an FtpURLConnection. (The "FTP use
from Android" thread goes into detail about this problem, complete
with example code).

I've noticed on my server logs that the Android emulator is actually
able to connect to the FTP server and even request the transfer of the
file (although the amount of bytes transferred is 0 in the xferlog),
so this doesn't seem to be a firewall or networking configuration
problem. I also have the Internet permission in the manifest file, and
I'm able to request files via HTTP just fine.

Has anyone been able to use FtpURLConnection successfully?

2. Slide Unlock via multi-touch instead of slide - Is this a bug that should be reported?

So the other day, my 14month old son grabbed my Motorola Droid (with
Firmware 2.0.1) and ran away from me giggling while mashing on my
phone like crazy.  By the time I chased after him and coaxed the phone
away from him, I noticed it was unlocked.   I was surprised that he
got it unlocked, so I gave it back to him and watched him unlock it
time and time again the same way.

He would press down on the round green circle unlock icon with his
left thumb, and then place his right thumb in the grey volume icon,
and then lift up his left thumb. Boom! Unlocked!   I tend to think
this is a bug and that the slide should require a "slide" action to
unlock.  I have frequently wondered how my phone becomes unlocked in
my pocket and now I think I understand why.

I imagine that the "press, press, unpress" unlock could be easily
prevented by requiring a single touch instead of a multitouch to

What do you think?  Is this something worth reporting as a bug?
