I have given up on ftping into my xbox. I wonder if Best Buy's "crossover" cables actually work. The colors on each each end of the connectors are indeed different, but I cant connect to the xbox or to another pc.
I got evolution x and xboxcopy onto the hard drive without ftping and copied a couple games over. If I could upgrade the hard drive without ftping, I wouldnt ever need to ftp.
Is there anyway for me to prepare a hard drive in my pc or just program it from a boot disk in my xbox?

stop FTP-ing ...
and ping first ...
if the ping works you know that your cross cable and your ip-configuration are correct ...
if your xbox has ip-adres 192.168.0.2 then go to a dos prompt on your PC and type :
ping 192.168.0.2 and an enter
when you got time-out -> either your ip configuration or cable are not correct
when you got a reply the connection is at least there

What he said.
SetupNetwork = Yes
StaticIP = Yes
Ip = 192.168.0.2
Subnetmask = 255.255.255.0
Defaultgateway = 192.168.0.1
DNS1 = 0.0.0.0
DNS2 = 0.0.0.0
Specify an IP address: ON (circle filled)
Then try what rooicity said, then, if it works, you should be on your way.
BTW, make sure you click SAVE AND EXIT in the evox settings screen, sometimes I forget and get pissed and wonder why it didn't work.

I can ping my own computer's address..no others, not the xbox or another pc. I've done all that addressing of the xbox and pc..thats not the problem...its prolly the cables.
I would much rather not need to ftp. Any ideas on upgrading without ftping?

The evox install disc can do it for you.
