Is the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) supported and can you programmatically upload a file to a server through FTP?
Any links with code and information will be appreciated.

One issue with FTP access on the BB can be file size. BIS-B and BES connections go through RIM's proxy and it will kill a connection after a certain number of bytes are sent during a connection. FTP is not restartable too, which makes this a little difficult....
Anyway, I wrote this last year and meant to publish it but never got round to it because I thought the approach was flawed. If you find it useful or find any bugs let us know, perhaps you can publish a correction.....
Free to use code. Don't ask me any questions and expect instant answers, I have not looked at this code in a year....

The size transferred depends on the settings in the proxy. Used to be quite small, but now I think the default BES setting is in the 1MB region. As noted, Carrier, WiFi and WAP do not have this restriction. The killer for me was the lack of restart in FTP.
