With my former ISP I got used to being able to transfer files from my laptop to my tablet by FTP, particularly ebooks in my Calibre file to my fbreader client on my tablet. That does not seem to be working. The fbReader app on the tablet does not seem to see the Calibre FTP port on port 8080 on my laptop. Is this blocked?

Hello again @brashley46,
I do not have Fido internet I'm not sure which modem you have but if you open a web browser and enter the following address to access the modem login page: 192.168.0.1. Once you log in click Basic -> Port Forwarding.
What setting is the modem's firewall set to? Try changing it to minimum and see if you can connect, I've had instances where the firewall settings in my Rogers's modem would interfere with connecting to my DVR internally.
If you are connecting to the laptop from the table then you need to forward the port to just the laptop, not both.
