General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.
Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
A network connection
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!
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.

This is my #1 FTP server since the blackb0x one. MultiMAN FTP doesn't work for me. I've this in program in version 2.1 with no password needed and it works superb. I think this version 3.0 could be the really last build of this great and stable working program.
MultiMAN now uses an older version of this (it's much better than what MultiMAN was using before).
As for this v3.0, as far as I can tell it doesn't work, and it is labeled on his site as an unofficial/in-development build. The last official release is v2.3, and it works fine.
v3.0 however (at the time of posting this) doesn't work at all for me. The icon on the XMB has no description/title beside it, and when you run the app it just crashes/kicks you back to the XMB, but the v2.3 still works fine when I went back to it.
It's better than blackb0x's FTP by far (more stable, just as fast, ability to set your own password or none at all) but since this version is not ready, download v2.3 instead for now.
The OpenPS3FTP changes are detailed below as follows:
OpenPS3FTP Version 3.0 Changelog:
