NAME obexftp - Mobile Equipment file transfer tool


DESCRIPTION obexftp is used to access files on mobile equipment, i.e. cell phones.

   This tool lets you access the ObexFTP library by the means of a command
   line interface.  You might consider using the other means available.
   E.g. GTK Client gObexFtp, Gnome-VFS-Module vfs-obexftp and some others.
