    How to Setup PS3 FTP via LAN Cable Directly to PC

    Sponsored Links
    I did not write this, but for people hooking up to a ps3 using a cat 5 cable it is a good guide.

    FTP Setup Guide

    Something i had some hassle myself setting up, thought I'd share it out to all the newbies.

    Information

    This guide will show you how to set up your PS3 to FTP directly with your pc via a LAN cable with no router inbetween and not allowing it to access the internet at the same time so Sony can't communicate with your PS3. A Crossover cable is not required, just a standard Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet cable is needed.

    Equipment

    - PS3 [3.15/3.41/3.55 - jail-broken]
    - FTP App [BlackBox FTP 1.2 recommended]
    - Computer with Ethernet LAN Port
    - FTP Client [FlashFXP, Filezilla]
    - Ethernet Cable

    Step 1 - Computer Setup

    Windows 7

    Go to "Control Panel" and under "Network and Internet" click "View network status and tasks" To open "Network and Sharing Center". On the left side panel click "Change adapter settings". Identify which device is the LAN port you will be using, right click on it and select "properties". Click on the item "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" then click the button "Properties". Click "Use the following IP address:" and "Use the following DNS server addresses:"

    Windows XP

    Go to the start menu and hover over "Connect to". Select "Show all connections". Identify which device is the LAN port you will be using, right click on it and select "properties". Click on the item "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" then click the button "Properties". Click "Use the following IP address:" and "Use the following DNS server addresses:"

    Fill out the box so it appears as below:

    Click use the following ip address:

    ip address= 10.1.1.1
    Subnet mask = 255.255.255.0
    Default gateway = 10.1.1.1

    Click Use the following DNS server address:

    Preferred DNS server = 10.1.1.0

    Alternate DNS server = 10.1.1.10

    Step 2 - PS3 Setup

    Go to the settings tab on the XMB, then select "Network Settings" followed by "Internet Connection Settings". Push ok on the prompt and select "Custom", "Wired Connection", "Auto-Detect" then "Manual". Fill out the form as follows.

    IP Address 10.1.1.2
    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
    Defualt Router 10.1.1.0
    Primary DNS 10.1.1.0
    Secondary DNS 10.1.1.10

    Select "Automatic", "Do Not Use" and "enable". Push X to save the settings. Test connection to verify you can acquire an IP Address. Internet Connection should fail.

    Open your FTP Sever on your PS3. I prefer BlackB0x FTP 1.2, but you can use MultiMAN or other types if you wish. It should tell you your IP Address is 10.1.1.2.

    Step 3 - FTP

    Open your FTP client and type in your PS3 IP (10.1.1.2) and make sure its on Port 21. IF you used a FTP server other than BlackB0x FTP 1.2, check if it needs credentials to work. Connect and begin transferring. Speeds should be very high as your connected directly to your PS3.

    if you have 10/100 ethernet you probibly need a crossover cord, newer pc's with 10/100/1000 usually are the ones that can handle the crossover itself.. there are exceptions.

    I see no reason why it wouldnt work on a mac, just make sure you have a proper ftp program and try it out.
