168w ago - Today blackb0x, the same team that released the LV2 Dumper, has now released their PS3 FTP Server v1.0b followed by version 1.1 with a changelog HERE and version 1.2 with the changes detailed HERE!
To quote from PSGroove: "I have just tested this and it is stable, bug free, and FAST (11MB/sec for me). Also thanks blackb0x for the shout out, it seems our site is becoming quite popular "
PlayStation 3 FTP Server 1.0b:
Well since no one has released a bug free, speedy, easy to use FTP server we decided to take the reigns on it. Introducing FTP Server 1.0b, it doesn't crash, it doesn't byte shift, and most importantly, it doesn't suck. Oh, and its threaded for speedy transfers
Install the pkg to your ps3 (you should know how to do this by now) then run blackb0x FTP. You can now connect to your PS3 via the PC FTP client of your choice. Just fill in your PS3′s ip, port 21, and leave username, and password blank. To quit the app either press X, or quit via ingame XMB.
Tested with FileZilla, FlashFXp, CuteFTP, and WinSCP.
Expect more tools from us in the future for the PS3.

i had been using cjpc's ftp server.. and was getting around 30-40MBs.. i switched to blackbox 1.2 and am only getting around 11ish.. so i switched back to cjpc's and im still only getting 11ish.. gigabit nic in pc.. gigabit router.. gigabit switch behind entertainment center.. obviously gigabit ps3.. and cat6 ran throughout the house.. any ideas on how to speed this thing back up?
This problem is common to any FTP server... Not just the PS3.
The problem lies in the most part with the access speed of your harddrive. Large files are usually contiguous and therefore allow the harddrive to spin faster/longuer whereas small files are spread accross the HD which makes the access time longer.
Furthermore everytime a new file is sent a new request is made with the server which takes up time.
Lastly Even large files start with slow upload speed very early on in the transfer... since the smaller files only take a split second to transfer, this means that they never get the chance to speed up!
I have encountered the same problem. Large files are blazing fast at around 30MB/s. Small files can transfer at less than 1 MB/s.
I'm using blackbox 1.1b, Filezilla (on win7 x64) with active transfer setting and maximum connections set to 1, PSGroove 1.1, Open Manager 1.13. I have only transferred two games so far. Both were successful but Demon's Soul was the game that gave me the above problem.
