[HELP]FTP thru ethernet?[Help] –
Is it possible to transfer games via ethernet? I have tried plugging ps3 into router and my laptop into the router aswell but it did not work.
I used a regular cat5 cable but I do have a cat5e(crossover) cable if it is needed.
The reason I ask is because I found a 500 gb hdd and I want to use that instead of the 120gb one. I want to transfer all backups from my ps3 to my laptop and install new hdd and re-transfer them back into ps3.
If there is a guide, can someone direct me to it.
Yes, it is download filezilla and do the folllowing
aken from another forum: First you need to download the PS3-FTP-Server.pkg file. Then download FileZilla, you can google this.
Place the PS3-FTP-Server.pkg on an external
Turn on your PS3 with the dongle in, using whichever way you normally use depending on your PS3
When your PS3 starts up plug in the external
Make sure your PS3 is hooked up to the internet, wired or wireless(DO NOT UPDATE TO 3.2) You don't have to be signed into your profile you just want to make sure your PS3 has internet access
Now go to Install Packages under the games tab, Install PS3-FTP-Server
Once finished it will have it's own icon, like the Backup Manager, start up FTP Server App by clicking on it
Now you will be on the main page, at the top is the IP Address you will need and the Port, which will be 21.
Hit Start and now is the time to go to your PC
Start up FileZilla
At the top is: Host, Username, Password, Port, Quickconnect
Host: (IP ADDRESS that is listed on the PS3-FTP-Server APP)
Password: (Leave Blank)
Then hit Quickconnect
It will now detect your PS3 (I had a couple errors when I first tried but just kept retrying until it got it, then it never gave me a problem after that)
The files are now listed on the right side, then one you want is "dev_hdd0" Double click it
Themes go in: dev_hdd0/theme
Games go in: dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ (If you don't have a GAMEZ folder inside LAUN12345, right click and create directory: GAMEZ)
Now you can put your games inside of there just drag and drop the one big folder inside of there.
At the bottom is Queued files, Failed transfers, Successful transfers
Make sure every file goes to the Succesful transfer section
If any go into Failed transfers right click on it and hit Reset to queue (bottom option)
If ever at the top it disconnects you or says Connection Failed, go to your PS3, hit Stop Server, then right after hit Start again, and it should restart the connection.
You can also try hitting Quickconnect again, and choose the Abort option(Bottom option)
Tip: Inside of Edit -> Settings -> Connection -> FTP, Change Passive to Active, just click it. After doing this I never have gotten another disconnect at all yet, and it seems to go a bit faster transferring
Hope you like the tut, I know it's not very pretty and long, but I tried to do it very basic and lay it all out there. Let me know if I missed anything!
Not my tutorial but a pretty good one indeed!

If it's ethernet you're using then you don't need a crossover cable. Simply take a normal Cat5/6 cable and connet you PS3 to your PC/Laptop.
e.g. In the TCP/IP settings on PC--
In PS3 Netowrk Settings
Keep MTU on automatic and UPnP enabled. That's all..enjoy 100Mbps/1Gbps connection depending on you PC/Laptop ethernet port. Start transfering away with your choice of FTP server/client. Takes less than 5minutes to transfer an 8GB MP4 for me.
