Can't Connect With Pc
Posted 05 May 2003 - 01:50 AM
I have my Xbox set for YES on both "setup network" and "use static IP". And as for "Line Status", it shows on the Xbox as 100/Full Duplex so at least something is going right.
My PC is set up to use IP 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
When I try ftp://xbox:firstname.lastname@example.org/ I get "operation timed out"
And with WS_FTP I get:
Connecting to 192.168.0.3:21
Any tips on what I could try doing or reading next to get me on the right track?
Thanks for your time!

But I think you need to put the username & password in your connection string. I'm using FlashFXP, and in the connection manager there's a place to enter that information. Also, did you double check in the system configuration menu via the XBox to verify that it's IP address is .03 instead of relying on whats specified in the ini file ?
Also, I *THINK* by having the network setup enabled it overrides the static IP address you entered in the ini file, but I'm not sure. I've posted that question here in the forums with no response but it makes sense to me.
And finally, you might want to add some additional information such as which bios and desktop you're using. And are you trying to connect via a router, a bridge, or a 2nd NIC in your PC ? If it's a NIC, are you using a cross-over cable ? I assume it's Evox as thats the forums you were searching in.... But additional information might generate more responses to your questions.
Just some thoughts from a beginner...

Here's my info from EVOX:
Line Status 100/Full Duplex
Setup Network YES
Use Static IP YES
Default Gateway 192.168.0.1
DNS (2nd time) 0.0.0.0
Kernal Version: 1.00.4975.01
On my EVOX desktop on the bottom right reads:
I'm running WindowsXP(home) and using a crossover cable and my PC is seeing the xbox but I just can't get it to connect via FTP. Hope this new info helps.

That's all you need to enter using quick connection via Flash FXP.
Don't forget typing in "xbox" as your username and password.

make sure your gateway matches the gateway your pc is using.
restart your xbox from the reset command on the dashboard menu.
in the corner of your dashboard, you should now see the correct ip address (192.168.0.3) instead of the incorrect one (0.0.0.0).
try ftping again. if it still doesn't work, try pinging the xbox (start-->run-->"cmd"-->"ping 192.168.0.3") to make sure your network recognizes the xbox is there. if no reply, take your xbox and throw it against the wall really hard. this should fix all of your problems.

Just my 2 cents

And I made sure my card was enabled. I'm showing a connection on both my xbox and pc but they just won't talk to each other. Usually it just shows as 0 bytes recieved and lots of bytes sent. Status: "connected"
I verified my xbox IP as 192.168.0.3 and that the gateway 192.168.0.1 is the same gateway as on the pc. My tcp/ip properties are 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
When I reboot the x-box, I get the "a network cable is unplugged" on my pc and then when it comes back up I get "local area connection is now connected" speed 100 Mbps but the evox desktop shows IP:0.0.0.0
Tried pinging but all I get are "request timed out" Packets: Sent=4 Recieved=0 Lost=4 (100% loss)......not sure if I want to throw it against the wall just yet though!
I'm not using zone alarm or firewall
Hope You all can help me out on this a bit more cause I'm not ready to give up just yet!
Thanks for the help so far!!

If u direct connect do not forget to use crosscable.

Section "System Utils"
Item "Flash BIOS",ID_Flash_Bios
On your menu, Click on "System Utils"
Now Click on "Settings"
Now go down to "IP Address"
Using Left,Down,Up,Right on your digital pad, you can change the settings.
Go back to the main menu.
Reset the XBox
Now instead of 0.0.0.0, you should see whatever you just input as your IP

I'm gonna go buy a new crossover cable because this just doesn't make sense why it isn't working.
Thanks for the help so far!
