I cannot for the life of me FTP into my XBOX. Using EvoX 2.5 and the latest dashboard

Using FlashFXP (in Windows XP) with xbox/xbox user/pass

Connecting to 192.168.0.3
Connection Failed (connection Timed Out)

also tried
192.168.0.1
Connection Refused


*Network Card PC - CABLE MODEM*
OBTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY
- IP ADDRESS: 211.28.92.197
- SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
- ASSIGNED BY DHCP


*Network Card PC - XBOX* - USING A CAT5 YELLOW CROSSOVER CABLE
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.0.1
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
(also tried with auto assign ip)
(assigned IP:169.254.95.7 from properties of Network card)
(Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0)
(Automatic Private Address)
(Connection failed (Connection refused))

*XBOX:*
TYPE
IP: 0.0.0.0
LINE STATUS: 100/FULL DUPLEX
ETHERNET MAC ADDRESS: 00:50:F2:5D:4A:4D
SETUP NETWORK: YES
USE STATIC IP: NO
IP: 192.168.0.3
SUBNETMASK: 255.255.255.0
DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.0.1
DNS: 0.0.0.0
DNS: 0.0.0.0


If I change PC - XBOX Network Card IP to OBTAIN AUTOMATICALLY, FlashFXP says:
Connecting to 192.168.0.3
Connected to 192.168.0.3 Port 21
Connection Failed (Connection Lost)

or

assigned IP:169.254.95.7 from properties of Network card
Connection failed (Connection refused)

any ideas ?

Are you assigning your computer a static IP? Are you going into the evox.ini and setting the Ip in there?

How do I set it as a static IP?

I set the IP on the PC to:
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.0.1
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0

Which is the same as what is on the XBOX i believe (See previous post).

Do you mean go into evox.ini and change 'IP' from 192.168.0.1 to 169.254.95.7 ? Or change the Static from off to on in the evox.ini ?

cheers

Try This:

*Network Card PC - XBOX* - USING A CAT5 YELLOW CROSSOVER CABLE
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.0.1
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0

*XBOX:*
TYPE
IP: 0.0.0.0
LINE STATUS: 100/FULL DUPLEX
ETHERNET MAC ADDRESS: 00:50:F2:5D:4A:4D
SETUP NETWORK: YES
USE STATIC IP: YES
IP: 192.168.0.2
SUBNETMASK: 255.255.255.0
DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.0.254

Also, this might help: Turn on the PC, when it is fully booted, turn on the xbox. If the connection still isnt present, turn the Xbox off for about 5-10 seconds, then turn the Xbox back on. This might help (it works for me).

I have found that I have to disable Zone Alarm to access my Xbox. Not sure if that will help!

You mention using DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.0.254 on the XBOX, why? I have my PC already set to 192.168.0.1 and the XBOX to 192.168.0.9 via static IP. With the crossover cable what is the .254 for? I am not familiar with that TCP/IP voodoo... smile.gif

Please elaborate if you can. Did you also have problems with connecting and the 0.254 address was the magic piece to the puzzle? Thanks for helping out! I am gonna try this as soon as I get home from work!

Wait... I had too much Gin

try 192.168.0.2 on your xbxox... I might be mistaken but I don't think 0.0.0.0 is a valid IP address....


Any way - I have 192.168.0.1 on my PC and 192.168.0.2 on my box and it works fine.

the x.x.x.254 was just an address out of the range that I would assign to to my xbox or computer. Actually, whatever I set the default gateway to works just as long as its not the xbox or PC's ip address.

I use a x.x.x.254 address to let me know that it is something out of the ordinary. (router, etc.) It doesn't do anything "magic", it's just a personal preference.

in addition, the only thing that I see in your original post that might cause a problem is that "USE STAIC IP" is set to "NO" in evox.

About the .254 - I always like to use a nondescript IP for my router as well, so that eliminates the question I had. Crap. I thought it was a special address that maybe the xbox had an easier time with configuration or something like that... oh well. any other ideas?

I have the same problem as the original poster. sad.gif I have correct settings on the xbox, and the PC. Both static, with different addresses within the correct addressing scheme. One is 192.168.0.1 (PC) and the XBOX is 192.168.0.9 - the router/gateway address is 192.168.0.123, and I still can't get FlashXP to see the xbox.

I wonder if XP is to blame? I am on XP pro, but I did everything I could think of to remove any kind of firewalling/filtering within the XP system. I am going to try using my mac and see if FTP works on it.. Maybe XP is the real problem since I think I have networking settings all correct?

If all settings are fine, XP Pro won't be the problem (that's what I'm using). Are the cables/hub/etc. functioning properly?

yeah, that's pretty obvious, dude... :/

I have it all set up on the XBOX right, I think, cause I get the static IP address I set along with the other info in the upper area (light blue text?).

My problem is that either using a crossover or a regular network connection it doesn't respond at all to anything (ping, ftp). Trust me I have read all over the place, and I am actually pretty sure I have the xbox set up completely right, I have tried both the .212 and .458 images with no luck.

AFAIK the network is functioning fine. I have three computers (Mac, PC and a 3Com Audrey in kitchen downstairs) all running fine, sending files, etc fine. My DHCP box gives out IP addresses fine to all three, but using static IPs works fine also.

The networking and IP addressing scheme I use is below, maybe this will help:
CODE


internet
|
cable modem
|
Linksys BEFSR41 ------ Audrey (downstairs, near router)
(192.168.0.123)          (DHCP)
|
|
hub (upstairs)------|
|              |           |
PC          Mac       XBOX
0.1          0.3        0.9



I listed the IP addresses of all machines using static IP addresses, the Linksys .123 address is also the Gateway address on the XBOX and all other computers.
But I have also removed the network and used the crossover from the PC to the XBOX with the same results. Hopefully this will spark some discussion.

Will BoXplorer allow me to copy the evox dash over to the HD on the XBOX? Maybe I can boot off of HD and ftp will work correctly then? Any ideas?
