FTP access to media files


Is there any method (using a laptop) to connect to the surface router via FTP to facilitate downloading video files to a laptop???

Is it possible to provide the password to the router interface (


Hi Jeremy,

We are currently making a bunch of changes to the way that files are transferred from your tablet/controller (and/or Trident) to your laptop (or to the cloud) so stay tuned for more information on that.

As for the USB port, right now that’s set up for internal debugging use only and is not publicly accessible but we might add file transfer functionality to that port in the future.


Hi @lorah, are you able to provide any updates on your above post regarding file transfers from Trident controller to PC? I’m a newbie with Trident and JDX controller, it’s all working wonderfully to dive and record, but I’m unsure of the best way to manage and transfer video files to my PC for editing. Is there perhaps a published guide, or recent thread that covers this? Thanks!
