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


167w 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.

Even with a 30cm cat6 crossover cable direct from the ps3 to the pc you'll never get close to 800Mbit/s (100MB/s) you'll tap out in around the 25MB/s (200Mbit/s) mark, maybe a little higher maybe a little lower, normal hard drives just dont work that fast, and the ps3's is particularly slow no matter what type of drive you have inside it.

As dave says though it's probably a wireless signal issue why your ftp speeds are so slow, i'd change the wireless channel if there are a few other wireless networks detected by the computer always by at least 5 though (the different channels overlap) so try 1 or 11+ instead of the default 6. other than that it's really either move the two closer together or switch to cable sadly

Wireless is crap on the PS3 because it has a bluetooth transmitter sat right next to it, or you have a wireless or something next to it running at 2.5 ghz, so before you look to deep into your setting remove phones, chargers, bluetooth head sets away from your router and PS3.

Mine is crap as well, wireless wise bud,like many others and it could be lots of things, like router issues, and the way windows works with QOS, stinks.

Unless you change your network settings on your wireless card to work at full speed all the time, having priority over all your network, to one connection like your PS3, then your wasting your time trying to make it run fast as it says on the tin, because windows and your router is trying to spread the LAN load across all your computers.

Use a cross over cable bud, so much faster than any other way. In some rear cases you can get 800 MBit /sec maybe the full 1000 MBit /sec using cat6 crossover cable. and of course having a 1000 MBit Ethernet card in your PC/laptop like most do now days.
