Great walkthrough- worked like a champ. Twice as fast a transfer as opposed to backing up to the usb....took 2 hours to rip GTA IV (4 gigs) and only 38 mins to transfer MLB2010 (20 gigs) to ps3 internal HD. Now where is the guide to replacing your internal PS3 HD with a TB HD? Thanks again!

huh? change your Gateway IP address with a invalid one... so your PS3 wont able to connect to the internet, but still you can use FTP and other services via LAN.
im lacking of extra ethernet adapter on my PC so.. the only way for me to connect to my PC is via wireless router.
I tried all of this on my macbook but I kept getting a message that there was not ethernet cable connection (when there was). Also the IP section was blank on the FTP server app and my only option was to 'x' out.

Can you do this with wifi?
Haven't tried. I'm scared as hell my ps3 will log onto psn and attempt to update to 3.50 or get stuck where I have no option but to go ahead with the fw update.

What I've heard little or nothing about is if I'm connecting directly to my macbook with an ethernet cable, what setting do I put for the router IP on the ps3 (situated just above the primary and secondary dns on the menu); and I can't leave that section blank because it won't let me save the settings.
Also, proxy settings? Do I leave this auto or do I have to put values in there as well and if so, what?
I'm using Cyberduck for ftp on my macbook, any suggestions as to what might be better?
Guys should do what this guy suggests. Just leave both your PC and PS3 connected to the router via ethernet.

You could just connect the PS3 to your router (with cable or WiFi) and set your router to deny the PS3 WAN port (internet) access.
Just block PS3 Mac Adress on your router as said above.
This options is usually under "Security - MAC Address filtering" or something like that.
The MAC address of your PS3 you'll find under DHCP client list.
Blocking the mac address via filtering is going to prevent it from obtaining an IP via DHCP, then you can't connect FTP.

That all depends on the router and how advanced the router firmware is.
