File Manager Quick-Start Guide:

BlackBerry connection settings.

On a BlackBerry you might have to configure your network connection according to your data plan. You can do this in the Settings->Misc.Settings section. DEFAULT will try to detect the proper setup. If you run into connection issues you could change that to DIRECT-TCP as it seems to be the most reliable. Also, note that connection attempts to ports below 1024 will probably fail if you are using BlackBerry BIS networking. These ports are often blocked by either RIM or the carrier. In that case you should either use a different network setting, or you configure your server to additionally listen on a high port number.

Bookmark list.

To manage your connection setups you should create a bookmark right away. These bookmarks are not only used for fast and easy reconnecting. They also serve as valid targets for copy operations and they define the source and destination of synchronization setups.

Multiple connections.

Once you connected to a file system you will be presented with a view that shows the directory listings. A second view to the local file system is automatically opened. To switch between the two file systems you can use the default left/right navigation of your device. On a touch screen device you can also swipe horizontally over the screen.

Long-click on a file or folder or select Options from the default menu to get a list of operations that you can perform on the selected items.

Copy target selection.

When you choose to copy one or more files you have to choose a copy destination. The Clipboard option is always available and gives you a new Paste menu entry on all open file system views. Further valid targets are your bookmarks. Each bookmark contains a Base Directory setting that will point to the directory where the files will be copied to. The third option is to use your second file system view and enter a target directory. This directory will also show up as a target option.

To close a file system view you will have to disconnect it. You can choose what connections you want to close. Note that you can open more than two connections at the same time!
