Can't connect to execftp via flashftp
Can't connect to execftp via flashftp –
Hey everyone, I've got the mc exploit working with launchelf but now I would like to be able to transfer files (elfs, game iso's, etc) over a network so that I don't have to take out the hdd everytime.
I noticed that my router only recognizes the ps2 on the network when I connect with the network adapter startup disc in the ps2, but when I try to connect with execftp it is does not show up on the network. Same results when I try to ping the ps2 from my pc. I can ping it w/ the startup disc in the ps2, but when I run execftp or any other game I can't ping the ps2. Do I have to register my netwrok adapter in order for the ps2 to always be recognized when it is plugged into the router/network? Or does this even matter?
Some info if needed:
Modem IP: 192.168.0.1
Router IP: 192.168.2.1
Port 21 is forwarded on the router.
Anyways, as provided in the attachment, flashftp won't connect using the static IP from execftp, nor will it connect using the IP from my router.
Create a file in the same directory as the execftps elf called CONFIG.DAT
it should contain:
in your case.
192.168.2.5 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.1
The only number there you may need to change is the first one, the IP you want execftps to use. Good luck.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and stop forwarding port 21 on your router, its not needed and not a real good idea (though probably harmless in this case)
Yep, I had the same problem. After a short research I found out the the ip adresses didn't match, it used the wrong ip adresses. How to fix it is said by notsloth, make sure you fill in the right ip adresses.
OK, thanks guys, I'll try that. I wanted to try to find a solution that didn't involve taking the hdd out of the ps2. I bought a flash drive (PNY attache 128) thinking I could install hdl_dump_server onto the ps2 this way, but launchelf would not recognize the drive in the usb mass directory. ALthough others have posted that this same flash drive works in their ps2.
For flash drives to work you have to copy the file USBD.IRX to the b(x)data-system folder. You get this file from one of the games that has it. I got it from Burnout 3. It can't be bundled with Launchelf for legal reasons.

That way you have to door open to push any elf from your PC to the PS2 to get more things installed and get the ball rolling. ExecFTPs for example will auto-detect this launching method (fakehost) and work initially without the CONFIG.DAT file present.
Gotcha thanks phreaker. So the only way I can get the USBD.IRX file is to extract it from a pressed ps2 dvd? or can I extract it from an iso image? TIA
edit: just found out I can get it from naplink. I'll try that.

Wow. My flash drive works just fine with LaunchELF without this USBD.IRX file ... ;-)

Got the file nap-usbd.irx from naplink, renamed it USBD.IRX, put it in the BADATA-SYSTEM folder. Still doesn't work. The flash drive was reformatted to fat32.
