Ok I have looked through alot of guides and threads here but none of them seem to work.

I am behind a router and with evox I used to just connect up no worries.

I left no code in the menu file for mxm and it didn't work so I added this to the bottom of the menu.xml file:

CODE
<Network>
<UseDHCP>true</UseDHCP>
<IP />
<DefaultGateway>192.168.0.1</DefaultGateway>
<SubnetMask>255.255.255.0</SubnetMask>
</Network>
<FTPServer>
<ServerPort>21</ServerPort>
<AllowAnon>True</AllowAnon>
<AnonRoot>/</AnonRoot>
</FTPServer>
</Menu>


I found this in another thread, my FTP client just hangs connecting to it. I have tried diff clients and also in Passive Mode. Any ideas please?

Well you have to specify the ip that your router gives your xbox. My router works like this:
Port 1 will give the connected PC/XBOX ip: 192.168.0.100
Port 2 : 192.168.0.101
Port 3 : 192.168.0.102
Port 4 : 192.168.0.103

So what you do is the check the internal IP on the computer you are using (port 1). if it ends with 100. den try the scheme I wrote...

If it starts with 2 or something else, just try to increase that with the port number. So if the Xbox is connected to port 3 in the router. That will be 192.168.0.4

When you think you have the IP of the Xbox put that in the IP-node;
CODE

<IP>192.168.0.100</IP>


And for the gateway, that is the routers ip. usually already the one you have entered. If you don't know open the webbkonfig, the ip you connect to there is the gateway...

Good luck. reply if you can't get it to work...

Hey man!

I got it working, for some reason it didn't like the anonroot.

Anyways I am getting speeds of about 2.5meg/sec ... Evox I used to get 5meg/sec

Any ideas?

Thanks

If you are using the same FTP program and the same type of files. Cuz bigger files transfer faster, those small files transfer really slow... If you don't Dont have a clue. Try with FlashFXP if you haven't...

Yes, FlashFXP eats up the data nice and fast.... other clients can have difficulties with MXM's FTP Server.
