Question about ftp manager and ethernet cable?
Question about ftp manager and ethernet cable? –
Trying for the 1st time copying a 4gb file over to internal. Thought I could make do with wifi, but its almost been an hour and I'm probably just 5%?
So I'm willing to try with a cable to speed things up. But was wondering... Can I use the ethernet cable to hook up the ps3 to a laptop containing the 4gb file? Or does the ps3 have to be connected directly to the back of my modem???
I'll try move the ps3 closer is I have to
Unless you have a crossover cable you won't be able to connect your PC directly to your PS3. You'll need a router to do that, and an actual physical cable should give you better transfer speeds.
Step 1. Connect the ethernet cable directly to the ps3 from your pc. Don't use any router.
Step 2. Download a ftp program called winSCP from the web.
Step 3. Configure the ps3 to use a ip. Any ip will do. for example 184.108.40.206 and use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask. Dun enter the gateway.
Step 4. Configure your computer to use another ip close to the ps3. eg 220.127.116.11 and use the same subnet mask.
Step 5. Install blackcat 1.2 ftp program into the ps3 and run it. Switch over to the pc.
Step 6. Install winSCP and run it. Enter the ip of the ps3 into the host address. Eg 18.104.22.168 , and enter any username and password that u like. Change SFTP into FTP below in order to work. If you do it correctly u will see the ps3 files.
Step 7. To copy/transfer files, just drag and drop.
I get transfer speeds of around 25-30 megabytes if i use a direct connection ps3 <-> pc. I get only 10plus if i use my 100mb router.
Try plugging PC into router and PS3 into router. If you have a good router you should be able get 35-40Mb/s no problem
Are all ethernet cables , cross over cables ?Do they carry data. ? can we use a normal ethernet cable for this purpose ?
Normally that'd be true, and I may not be right on this, but I've seen it on a bunch of sites, the PS3 has auto-sensing and knows when it needs to go into X-over functionality. So, supposedly, you can use a regular cat5 cable.
Err... you're the one spreading wrong info. PS3 implements Auto-MDIX, otherwise it would not possible to use any cable to transfer data between two PS3 (they would tell you to get a crossover cable in the manual and even in the interface of Data Transfer Utility)... anyways most of the network component (maybe not the cheapest) implement this technology.
**EDIT** And yes it has auto sensing too...which is different, it means it can switch to the right standard (10/100/1000 Mbit/s) according to the component it is connected to.
I stand corrected then, I was unaware the PS3 could automatically switch modes.
I haven't been able to verify this personally, but it looks as if this is correct from what I've found on Google.
If your PC doesn't support this, you may have issues.
I plan on upgrading to an gigabit router soon, so I could reach the numbers you're seeing. What I want to know is once I get the gigabit router, there is no need for a switch? Current setup is Network Card to Switch (Gigabit), Router to Switch (100mbits), PS3/360 to Switch (Gigabit).
