PS3 FTP Made Easy!
PS3 FTP Made Easy! –
Guide for FTP'ing to your PS3 by directly connecting your PC to the PS3.
This guide is intended for the psx-scene.com forums but may be reposted without my consent anywhere you dang well please! Guide by: SonyUSA
Step 1: First, connect your PC (desktop or laptop) to your PS3 directly with an ethernet (network) cable. A standard cable will work, it does not have to be a cross-over cable.
Step 2: For now, this is just for windows based users. We need to set the IP to be static so lets open your settings:
(a) For Windows XP: Open Control Panel and Network Connections (switch to classic view if needed). Right click on your Local Area Connection (not wifi if you are using a laptop) and press Properties.
(b) For Vista/7 Users: Open Control Panel, Click Network and Sharing Center (you may need to click View By: Large Icons to get to it directly) then on the left-hand side, click Change Adapter Settings. Right click on Local Area Connection (not wifi if you are using a laptop) and press Properties.
Step 3: Click on TCP/IP (XP) or Internet Protocol Version 4 (Vista/7) and press Properties. Change the dot to Use the following IP Address and put in:
IP Address: 192.168.2.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Leave the DNS settings blank and press OK. Close all the other dialogues, you're done here for now.
--IMPORTANT-- When you come back here to revert your settings, don't forget to click the lower DNS Settings bubble back to Obtain DNS Server Addresses Automatically, because Windows won't do it for you!
Step 4: Go to the network settings on your PS3 and choose the option to set up a new network, wired, and with custom settings. The only thing you need to change is the IP address settings, so when you get to them, type in:
IP Address: 192.168.2.11
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Leave everything else default and finish the network setup.
Step 5: Fire up your FTP server on your PS3 then the FTP client on your PC and punch in the address 192.168.2.11 with (normally) Port 21 and connect!
Have fun transferring at decent speeds, and special thanks to Brandon for his port to the TI84+/SE !!! When you are finished, you can work backwards to change your PC settings back and the PS3 should save your regular network connection, so just go back in and set it as the default connection!
I posted this before, here is how I did it (basically same as above).
I just setup a static IP address for my ethernet port on the PC (192.168.5.1, in IPv4) and 192.168.5.2 on the PS3.
Then if you follow this below, you will be connected via the cable and not have any possibility that you will get access to the internet, and your connections won't be bridged.
Custom -> Wired Connection -> Manual Settings -> Auto Detect -> Manual -> IP Address (above), Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default Router 22.214.171.124, Primary DNS 126.96.36.199 -> Automatic -> Use -> Address: 188.8.131.52, Port 8080 -> Enable -> Hit X for Enter -> Test Connection, then Cancel
If you have set it up properly, in Windows 7 your connections screen will look like this:
Your post doesn't make much sense, and some of these kiddies don't know how to actually set a static IP address on their machine.
um, you don't exactly tell them how to set it up either. you need to do it in windows 7 by right clicking on Local Area Connection (after you click Change Adapter Settings) -> Properties -> Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click Properties -> select Use the Following IP Address -> Enter the address above IP Address and the subnet mask above, then OK.
Now it's explained thoroughly.
PS, make sure you setup the settings in your PS3 first, then connect the cable to your PC so it will recognize the Local Area Connection before you begin changing settings on your PC.
That's exactly the steps I posted above. Learn to read. Also it doesn't matter which system you set up first, the adapter resets on either after you put in the settings and since it's static, it will still connect without any issue.
not trying to argue here, just trying to make it noob friendly...
i just wanted to make sure that the cable was plugged in before they started tinkering around with the ip settings on their computer. if the cable is not plugged in, then they might mess up their regular internet settings you know?
It won't matter either way, like I said, the PC adapter resets when you change IP settings so it will act like an unplug/plug anyway.
in windows 7 the local area connection won't show up until you plug the cable in.
Again, not true. It will show up all the time in the place I designated in my guide.
doesn't show up on my windows 7 machine until i actually plug the cable in.
maybe i got a version of win7 than you did... lol
