We are looking for an FTP/FTPS/SFTP library for Windows Phone 7 (Mango 7.5). Your documentation does not mention support for that platform. What is the current status for this?

Applies to: Rebex FTP/SSL, Rebex SFTP

As of January 2012, none of our components work with Windows Phone 7 or 7.5.

The lack of support for Windows Phone 7 was due to missing Socket API - it's simply impossible to communicate with any FTP/FTPS/SFTP without TCP sockets.

Although socket support was added in Mango (and an SDK released one month ago), we are currently busy finishing the next major release of our components and didn't have time to test this yet. We will look into it later this year - if you would like to test a beta when it's ready, please let us know!

Too late for us. We needed something now.

Good luck.

We now offer a beta of Rebex Components for Windows Store 8, 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 at Rebex labs. Silverlight-based Windows Phone 7.0, 7.5 and somewhat transitional Windows Phone 8.0 will not be officialy supported.
