Default Mount Samsung Smartphone

OpenBSD sees it, but I am not quite sure how I would mount it.


messages output:

Code:
/bsd:  port 1 configuration 1 "SAMSUNG SAMSUNG_Android" rev 2.00/4.00 addr 5

"Modern" Android platforms do not map as mass-storage devices for mounting filesystems. Instead, they use MTP or PTP. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Transfer_Protocol).

There is an MTP library in ports (devel/libmtp) which is a dependency for some applications but I've never been able to connect an Android device to any of them.

Once my Android phones no longer spoke umass(4), I've primarily used the Airdroid web-server for Android in order transfer files via WiFi, and I've also used the OpenBSD port of adb (devel/adb) if I needed the bandwidth of a USB cable.

---

Edited for clarity and to add:

If your Android phone permits tethering via USB -- which may be vendor controlled -- the USB connection will attach to the urndis(4) driver. Network file transfer such as sftp(1) or nc(1) could be used, if you have the matching server software on your phone such as OpenSSH or Dropbear, or netcat. Use of such tools will require a rooted phone -- with the possible exception of netcat, if high port numbers are used..

My phone is rooted, and I do have usb tethering enabled, so the urndis(4) driver may be the best option, although the android debug bridge looks interesting as well. I'll look into it.

thanks...

i'm looking for a solution as well. My Galaxy S7 is not rooted though, if that makes any difference.

I provided several optiions above. Of the options mentioned, Airdroid and adb do not require a rooted phone.

ES File Explorer, a useful (to me, anyway), android app, has a built in FTP server. I find it useful for quick transfers of something to and from the phone.
