I'm not sure why but I'm having trouble connecting my PS3 to my PC via FTP. I'm running the latest build of Yellow Dog Linux and installed the latest build of gFTP. The FTP server is setup on the PC in my room and the PS3 is wired to the router and sitting next to the PC.
Now, I'm trying to FTP over a Blu-Ray disc image I dumped to my PC but, can't do that if I can't connect to it. The server is connectable, I know that for sure. I've tested other PCs in the house and connected to it via LAN IP and WAN IP, both work fine. I had a friend test the connection as well to make sure it was working outside my network and that was fine too. So, I'm quite baffled that the PS3 can't connect to it at all.
I'm using a wired connection on my PS3, firmware v1.80. I can connect to HTTP and FTP sites fine.
