Ftp From Specific Machine Not Working
Posted 06 July 2009 - 05:12 PM
the only repair done was video card related, I didn't even send the HDD in with the laptop, so nothing has changed software wise. I've tried FTPing to the dashboard ftp server (avalaunch), as well as XBMCs and I keep getting the same error.
I went through the ftp server options in both dash/xbmc, everything appears normal. I don't see any setting for machines that are allowed/blocked or anything... can't really make any sense of these symptoms. Any ideas?

Have you tried a crossover cable straight to the Xbox? Have you tried FTPing from an Internet site? Internet works on this machine?

I have a linksys wireless router (WRT54G), and all my machines both wired/wireless connect through the router. Xbox is wired, both laptops (the one that works and the one that doesn't) are both wireless.
The xbox appears to have internet acces (the time/date is scnc'ed online and I have up to date weather etc in xbmc). Also, i'm sorry but I'm not clear on what you mean by FTPing from an internet site.
The weird thing here to me is that from the xbox I can see all the other boxes on the network, including the one I can't ftp from, and it can be pinged from the other boxes too. Nothing on the hard drive of the machine that can't FTP has changed between the time it worked and now (even has the same static IP), and the only thing I can think of that has changed on the xbox was that I updated XBMC. But since I'm having this problem in the dash as well, I don't think that has anything to do with it.
I haven't tried an xover cable to the box, but even if that works, I'm more interested in getting ftp from this machine working again than getting some specific content to the box.
