I found this:
I was wandering, can I use the ftp server for ps3 to transfer files to the internal HDD even when I disabled internet connection under 'network settings'? what I mean is does disabling internet connection also disables 'local' network between the PC and the ps3?
No you can't. If you change the DNS settings to some random numbers it will block the PSN but the PS3 will still be active on your network.
hold on,so If I'm not connect to the internet,and connecting the PS3 to the PC via the Internet Cable,I can still transfer files?
no tweaks are needed... All of the steps for changing ips etc are just a waste of time.

In a self assigned ip situation however the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, so as long as the first 2 fields match they will be able to communicate.
I need some clarified here...
If my PC is NOT connected to the internet,and I connect my PS3 to the PC via the Internet Cable,the FTP server thing will still work?
Yes, it works. I did it last night. Just follow the instructions listed to the link above. I got very fast transfer rates, which was great when moving a 20gb game internal to external.
