Need help with PChost...
im stuck, i've looked around the forum, and the net, for afew days, no good, i really need help.
i can transfer any ps2 game to my ps2 with hdl dump when ps2's in HDLD SVR mode.
but i cannot install or run any .elf file with pchost.
here's what i did:
in boot manager,
2-started pchost server.
then in my pc,
3-started ps2client loader.
4-put "BM" and "DEVS" folders from my pc hdd to ps2client loader's box (the bm/devs folders from yoc's essential pack 1.2 fw34).
5-put "ESSENTIAL_PACK_1.2_fw34" folder to the box also just in case.
6-clicked "start", the circle image went green.
then back in boot manager,
7-selected "application browser", "install", then "pchost".
nothing in the list, total empty.
8-selected "run", then "pchost", nothing.
also nothing in "device manager".
firewall's off, and forwarded the port in my router (it's fine, i can use hdl dump no problem).
ps2 ip's 192.168.0.10 (same as HDLD SVR, so it should be fine), should i edit "primary DNS server" (in "network configuration") to my ips address?
what is wrong? am i missing something?
guess ccwiki has an info i need but it's down.
i tried with launchelf, same thing, no good, nothing in the directory of "host"'s.
Better start the PS2Client manually in the folder where the BM folder is located. I guess BM doesn't like the way Ps2ClientLoader passes directories. Open a DOS window, change to the correct folder and start PS2Client with: ps2client -h 192.168.0.10 listen
The DNS server is only needed for internet, so you don't need to configure it.

EDIT: I attached the correct version of PS2Client needed by BM. You can use the listen.bat to start it (open it with an editor and change the IP address first).
thanks man, that works.
and the exec.bat file works great for ulaunchelf.
Glad I could help you.:)
With the exec command you can start most apps via network, when ps2link is running on your ps2. It's a great way of testing script changes in BM, I always use it for debugging.
