See Feature #6096.

  • Delete the known issue about “Connecting to FTP servers is not possible”. We shouldn’t list on this page every single thing that is not possible to do with Tails.
  • Remove mentions of FTP on doc/first_steps/introduction_to_gnome_and_the_tails_desktop.mdwn and, since we’re already breaking translations, improve the sentences that are modified by the change (if relevant).
  • Remove the section on “Downloading files from an FTP server on the local network” in /doc/advanced_topics/lan.html.
