221w 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

HA ha you're trying, as you know i never said that. For the last time! 63MB/s. pisses all over your speeds. lol. gutted.

ok so you're saying, just to be 100% clear, your WD caviar blue hard disk is either reading or writing at 2.4Gb/s (or 300MB/s).

That's pretty funny

No I don't think my drive runs at 3.0Gb/s, thats what it says on the drive, nor did I say it did, its 2.4 Gb/s like I posted before,And m8 LOL you have nothing to explain to me, I can see in all your posts you've made in the last two months, you have nothing to offer. And now your saying.

"I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal". Ow so you didn't know this from your own test then? Its the norm you say, well it's not the norm, then you say its the Ethernet thats the bottleneck, so what is it? the drives. the network, or the PS3, or just the norm? Come on please explain to me which one is it now? End Of!

I said around the 25MB mark because thats about normal, if you get more go you. but i've given up trying to explain hard drive speeds to you. you just carry on thinking your hard drive runs at 3Gb/s and its the gigabit ethernet that's the bottleneck lol

No1 I never said I was trying to fill that gap in your pipe, you said it was down to slow hard drives.

So I am saying your wrong, and its getting boring now.were are you getting 25MB/s max from, thats slow as fooook and, and please don't tell me I am not getting 63MB/s, on my setup or tell me that, you can not get the speeds I'm saying when I have done this many a time. 63MB/s is 504Mbps, which is actually 1/2 the size to fit in that Pipe on my PS3 1000 base T network card.

Generally 60-70MB/s is what you get on Gbit normally , and I have done for a year or two now, since I had the kit to make the loads and so on.

Barry M8 it's you that don't get it!!!

no the sata connector on the end of your drive is capable of 3Gb/s thats not the actual throughput of the read write heads!, that's irrelevant when you look at the read write speeds of a mechanical drive. you're really not getting this are you, that hard drive will never fill a 3Gb/s pipe.

"Average read and write results of 74.5MB/sec and 48.1MB/sec place the 500GB Caviar Blue near the bottom of our benchmark table" -- Taken from pcpro.co.uk/reviews/hard-disks/252141/western-digital-caviar-blue-500gb

And those results aren't bad for a mechanical hard disc, the things were designed in the 80's and haven't really changed since. Your 63MB/s transfer speed might be right i'm not argueing i'm just saying it's nowhere near 100MB/s or the equivelent 800Mbit speeds you originally stated
