PS2/HDD networking? please explain...
PS2/HDD networking? please explain... –
I've had my HDD for a while now, and although my primary use for it is gaming, i want to store some music and tv shows on it aswelll. Right now, i usually chuck on 'Lost' and 'prison break' onto my 1GB USB drive and run it off sms 'media player'.
Anyways, i want to store them on my HDD, without copying it over via USB (slow), i hear you can network your ps2 to pc and get some decent speed.
Anyone know how to network their PS2 to PC?
Or does anybody have a BETTER and FASTER alternative to get mp3's and avi's to the ps2?
Heres what i have:
- PS2 with 200gb HDD + Network adaptor (partitioned to 40gb)
- 1GB USB
- SMS media player
- ELF, to boot up sms and hdloader
- PC HUB/Router
- External hdd case. (dont have to open pc case)
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
you can use FTP
follow this Tutorials :
you just need to setup a connection between your PC and PS2
here is the setting :
PS2 IP Address:
file not created
run ULE and then go to the MISC>>PS2 Net..
and run any FTP Programme as iam using UltraFXP
more info on that link above.
While it is true that you can use normal FTP to transfer files to the PS2, using the built-in FTP server of uLaunchELF, that is not the best (==fastest) way to do it. At best I get FTP speeds of around 200KByte/sec, whereas the host: interface provides speeds of around 1450KByte/sec. (In both cases those are average speeds.)
The host: interface requires that you use a PC-side client program to contact the host: server in uLaunchELF. That can either be "RadHostClient", a program designed specifically for that purpose, or "ps2client.exe" which is a command line program which includes a host: client. For the latter case I recommend that you also use one of the 'frontend' programs designed for such use, one of the best being "PS2ClientLoader".
You can find all of the programs mentioned above, as well as a lot more info on their use, simply by searching for those quoted strings on this site.
Once you have some host: client up and running, you'll be happy to know that you can also use this to stream movies directly from your PC to SMS, without having to store them on any PS2 media. That can save even more time than any other alternatives, except when you really want the stuff stored on the PS2.

uLaunchELF is the way to go, just follow dlanor guide
Could someone tell me how to get that ps2client loader thing to work?
I've searched around and couldnt find anything on it.
It's quite simple really. You just need to make sure that you store the command line program "ps2client.exe" (found in the uLE forum and other places) in the same folder as the GUI program "PS2CL126.exe" (also found on this site). Then you start the GUI and configure it, making sure to get the IP address correct, and that's all.

The folder list, unlike the other settings, are stored in a text file named "elflist.txt" in the same folder as the two programs, so you can also edit it 'by hand' if you like. That is in fact necessary if you want a correct link to the root directory of one of your PC drives. To do that you simply add a line containing only the drive letter followed by a colon character, like the following line:
That will make the entire root directory "D:\" available to host: as the pseudo folder "D:/" in the host: root.
Such root links can also be added by drag-drop of the wanted drive from "My computer", but the link will then not be formally correct, as it will contain "D:\" instead of "D:" in the text file, and will thus be expanded to "D://" by the PS2-side program, which is incorrect (though it still works, sort of...)
