Help finding a working FTP client for Mac....
Help finding a working FTP client for Mac.... –
Ok, I am running OS X 10.4 (Tiger), and I have the FTPServer for the PS3 installed. I am looking for an FTP client on my Mac so I can connect to the PS3 to move game files that I have been backing up to an external (got a newer, bigger INTERNAL drive ). I have tried two so far (OneButtonFTP and YummyFTP) and neither could/would connect to the PS3, and obviously less yet do anything else.
If anyone has gotten this working, let me know.
Maybe try cyberduck? That's what I use on my Mac Book Pro to connect to my iDevices. it works pretty sweet.
+1 to Cyberduck. It's the best client for mac, and I think it's free. Be sure to disable passive mode in the FTP connection settings
I also use FileZilla.
Its easy to handle, but the connection crashs very often.
I think its the PS3 ftpclient and not FileZilla.
i also use cyberduck, it is freeware & it works like a charm.
i guess for use with mac os x tiger a version up to v.3.2.1 will work, at the changelog section the right version can be found.
Maybe update to leopard or snow leopard then give cyberduck a try
i did this with my own heavy rain rip from external HD to PS3 on my Macbook last night with a standard Ethernet cable
The Ethernet cable will give u transfere speed of 30-50mb per second so use it
to use the Ethernet method u must go to network settings on the PS3 and manually configure the IP address and DNS using the IP and DNS of ur Ethernet port e.i ur PC or Mac.
For mac I had to go to network settings and enable sharing over Ethernet first then get the IP and DNS from the ethernet connection
Don't worry about the rest as it just needs to pass the IP check not the internet check.
Then boot up FTP on PS3 u will see the IP address and port number u entered
Boot up FillZilla and enter the IP address and port number from FTP on PS3
use FTPD12345 as the username and make up a password.
Once connected navigate to /dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ
Dump the game ID folder into the GAMEZ folder and it will transfer
After a day of shit.
IŽll say, take cyberduck. Less till zero connection failure.
I connected my ps3 with an extra switch to my mac mini.
192.x.x.2 for Mac
192.x.x.3 for PS3
DNS and Gateway got 192.x.x.1
So, I have now downloaded and tried YummyFTP, OneButtonFTP, Filezilla, and Cyberduck. Of all of these, the only one that successfully even connected, was Filezilla (after a large amount of tweaking, that is).
Now I can connect and see the folders and so on. Here's my problem/question now (and if anyone with OS X 10.4 and Filezilla could actually try it out and help, that would be really super): I can connect and start transfering files. After a "handful" of files transfer (usually about 80 out of 100k) it stops successfully transferring and starts giving me an error stating it was in "PASV" (passive) mode and that was not supported. I disconnect and recheck everything, only to find I AM NOT in passive mode. Anyone else having this (or similar) problems?
PASV isn't really the issue...

Make sure you set Cyberduck (or whatever you use) to use only *1 connection at a time* when you connect to the PS3.
The PS3 ftp app isn't very robust and doesn't handle multiple connections (well).
Also, don't use the Stop FTP Service option. 9 out of 10 times it locks up the whole system; just exit to the xmb instead.
