Adding FTP client driver to BM
Adding FTP client driver to BM –
The Theory :
I'd like Boot Manager to be able to connect to a http or ftp (or even TFTP) url to download firmwares and APP as easily as if it was a USB drive.
So I went to ps2dev svn depository and search for a FTP client for PS2, and find one : tenftp. And what is great is that it's an IRX driver, ready to be installed into the SHARED directory of BM.
From the readme :
It seams that it is handled as a filesystem.
So, would it be possible to use it as the USBHDD or HOST driver ?
In BootManager, will it appeared in the DEV source menu ?
The Practice :
I've started to prepare the DEVINFO.PBT. I didn't have time to go further but I plan to add a variable with the IP Address of the FTP server and add it to the name of the dev in DEVINFO.PBT. This way, I won't have to change a single line of code in BM scripts.
Am I completely crazy or is the theory good ?
If this is not the good path, Would it be possible to add a IRX driver for accessing to news, APPS and firmware update via the Internet ?
