Let me start off by saying I am only posting this because it is an easy way for some people to start ftping to the xbox without downloading additional software. Windows FTP is slower than most software that has been written to do ftp only. However it does resemble the regular Windows Explorer and you can copy, cut, and paste like you normally do to move files around in Windows.
Ok, with that out of the way lets get things going. First I will define how to setup a PC and xbox to directly connect to each other using a crossover cable. Make sure you have a crossover cable as defined below.
Crossover Cable Pin-out (abbreviated colors)
O/W O G/W BL BL/W GR BR/W BR
G/W G O/W BL BL/W O BR/W BR
Next you will have to setup IP addresses on your PC and Xbox. On your pc go into your network properties and select TCP/IP properties for your ethernet adapter (I did not mention you had to have this but I hope you can figure it out on your own.) Now change select Use the following IP address: and enter the settings below.
IP address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 0.0.0.0 (leave blank or enter 184.108.40.206)
Now save theses setting, if your using broadband or something and your PC is pre-configured please document what you are changing.
On your pc go to start->run and type "command" and press enter.
A command window should open and you will have a command prompt.
Type "ipconfig" and press enter to verify your ip setting. You should see the static setting your your ethernet adapter, if not you may get 0.0.0.0 or cable disconnected. If so, make sure your crossover cable is plugged in. Second if you get 0.0.0.0 you may have to disable the enable your nic. If that is too confusing just reboot. If you made any of these changes issue the ipconfig command again and check results.
Next we need to verify the ip settings in evox. Usually by default the ip settings are preset. But we need to verify them. In your evox.ini go to the [Network] section. Verify the following:
SetupNetwork = Yes
StaticIP = Yes
IP = 192.168.0.3
Subnetmask = 255.255.255.0
Defaultgateway = 0.0.0.0
You can also make these changes going into evox settings just make sure after you change them scroll down the screen and select SAVE AND EXIT. Also some people want to monkey around with the gateway. Your devices are on the same subnet and they are connected to each other, you do not need a gateway because your not leaving your subnet.
Now make sure you have plugged in your crossover cable to your xbox and pc. Reboot evox and you should be connected. Try and ping your xbox to see if you have a connection.
Type "ping 192.168.0.3" (enter)
You should get about 4 replies from 192.168.0.3. If so you are ready to ftp.
To ftp using Internet Explorer is quite easy. Begin by opening up Internet Explorer. In the address bar type the following: "ftp://xbox:email@example.com" press go or enter. the xbox:xbox is username:password if you have change them in the evox.ini. Also you can just but the username and it will prompt you for the password. You should now see all your drives in your window. Cut, copy and paste as you please.
