FTP Setup in Dropbox. How to set-it up?

FTP Setup in Dropbox. How to set-it up?

Hello All,

 

I have a remote camera at my cabin in Tennessee, it is accessible through an app and is always on. The camera typically senses movement

will snap 3 pictures and upload/email them to my gmail account. However gmail has changed access using 3rd party apps and I can no longer

receive the pictures. I was told I can setup dropbox as an FTP server and my camera will upload to my dropbox, all videos and pictures.

Is this possible? and if so, would anyone have a step by step to set this up?

 

Thx for the help

Dropbox does not support FTP connections. There are workarounds and third-party solutions that work as a go-between (you FTP to them, they connect to your Dropbox for you, etc.), but they are not controlled by or supported by Dropbox.
