I currently use AndFTP to download files remotely using the ftp or sftp protocol. For local file access, I use something like ASTRO File Manager or Linda File Manager. I recently discovered EStrong File Explorer, a file manager that lets me access both local and remote files. You can access or stream remote files directly without downloading it first. That is, you can select an mp3 file and play it with your favorite music app directly. It is like the remote server is mounted on the device like in Linux which makes file access feel seamless. Too bad streaming movie files like XviD is a little laggy with MX Video Player or Rockplayer Lite even when the server is on the local network.
