    With SX OS 1.6, I haven't been able to get the built in Always-on FTP function to work (yet) however, FTPd works fine... but I was wondering in the event where I can get the built in Always-on FTP function to work properly, would it be possible to access the FTP server while the switch is docked/sleeping? This way, if I want to send an nsp file to the sd card while I am away from home, I can do so via remote desktop to my computer then connecting to the FTP server and initiating the file transfer.

    It would kind of be like simulating when you purchase a game on the eshop and Nintendo pushes it to your console so its ready to play later, except with this it will be ready to install later.

    Docked, yes. Sleep mode, no it has to be turned on for the FTP connection to work. Though i should warn you, transferring large files over FTP takes a LONG time, it's really slow
