OpenPS3FTP v1.1 Arrives, an Open Source PS3 FTP Server App


168w ago - This weekend jjolano has released OpenPS3FTP v1.1, an open source multi-threaded PS3 FTP Server application utilizing some functions from stoneMcClane's previously released PS3FTP.

The version 1.1 update below adds increased stability, performance, and some bugfixes detailed in the ReadMe file, v1.2 fixes passive mode, version 1.3 changes are detailed HERE, version 1.4 updates are outlined HERE followed by v1.5 changes HERE.

Download: OpenPS3FTP v1.0 / OpenPS3FTP v1.1 / OpenPS3FTP v1.2 / OpenPS3FTP v1.3 (Dev Version) / OpenPS3FTP v1.3 OpenPS3FTP v1.4 / OpenPS3FTP v1.4 (No Pass) / OpenPS3FTP v1.5 / OpenPS3FTP GIT

From the author: I haven't seen an open source ftp server that is multi-threaded, so I decided to code this up. Also, blackb0x ftp is just having problems for me since I use FileZilla and for some reason blackb0x doesn't like it.

Some functions are from stoneMcClane's PS3FTP, so credit to him for those.

OpenPS3FTP is an open source multi-threaded ftp server for the PS3. Made with PSL1GHT (kudos to those guys).

Default username: root
Default password: openbox

  • Passive mode support
  • Active mode support
  • Multiple worker support (multi-threaded)

Soon to come:

  • User and password database file (and maybe even directory restrictions)

Today jjolano has updated his open-source PS3 homebrew FTP application to OpenPS3FTP v2.0 with the changes detailed below.

Download: OpenPS3FTP v2.0 / GIT

From the included Version 2.0 - March 23, 2011 changelog, to quote:

  • Changed ICON0.PNG
  • Moved to a different XMB category (now under Network)
  • Fixed another possible memory leak
  • Added "dev_dragon" to mount detection and warning list
  • Changed LIST command output format (again)
  • Added new algorithms and methods
  • Should support Remote Play (untested)
  • Added a better way to get the IP (no internet required anymore - thanks andoma)
  • Added /app_home and /host_root to listing exceptions as they cause problems
  • Now uses Hermes' sysfs sprx link instead of lv2 syscalls
  • Tweaks made to improve internal performance, stability, and reliability
  • Added a "screen saver" (simply blanks screen after 60 sec of no controller input)
  • Added an exit application button combination shortcut (SELECT + START)
  • Added an internal "retry system" designed to reduce failed transfers for small files
  • New git for v2.0 and later: http://git-hacks.com/openps3ftp

General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.

Prerequisites:

  • Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
  • A network connection

Installation:

  • Extract the pkg files from the archive and copy them into a USB drive
  • Connect the USB drive to your console and select the pkg file under the "Install Package Files" menu (found under Game)

    Note: The pkg file that you select should correspond to the custom firmware you are using. For example: if you have installed geohot's 3.55 jailbreak, use the file "openps3ftp.geohot.pkg". If not, use "openps3ftp.pkg". Users of CFW 3.55 kmeaw can use any pkg.

  • OpenPS3FTP is now installed!

Usage:

  • Launch OpenPS3FTP (found under Network)
  • Wait until you see text on the screen.
  • Connect to your console using an FTP client (such as FileZilla) with the IP address and port shown on the screen with user root and password openbox.
  • Now that you're connected, you can browse through and manipulate files on your console as if it were a folder on your computer.
