200w 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!

Download: PS3 FTP Server v1.0b / PS3 FTP Server v1.1 / PS3 FTP Server v1.2

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

Instructions:

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 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.
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!

Blackb0x FTP Server 1.2 Released, to quote via PSGroove:

blackb0x is at it again. This time releasing an update to their popular FTP Server, version 1.2. The latest version promises more stability with the Filezilla client, which should be music to some users ears.
Changelog:

1.2)
- Fixed auto-exiting when using the PS3 Remote Control instead of a gampad.
- Removed leading "/" from roots
- fixed multiple transfer connection issues for filezilla. More then 1 transfer connection at a time should work.
- Fixed misreported file size for files over 4gb.
I have also updated the first post with it now.

Not sure if anyone notices this problem, but whenever the FTP hits a bunch of small files, the transfer speed drops drastically to a point where it would take hours just to transfer those files. But when it hits a large file (couple gigs in size or larger), it blazes at 25MB/s.
