The used evolution X 1.8.3285. I changed the evox.ini to yes where it says staticIP. I made an iso, burned it on a cd-rw and booted the disc okay. This is where i'm lost.
I've never used any networking before. windows had to go through a little configuration instructing me to put windows disc in drive and so on. I setup everything I read in the tutorials. IP address, default gateway, subnetmask and so on. I then tried to used FXP to connect but I can't seem to connect. Flash FXP reads connection failed (connection timed-out). I have a direct connecton from PC to Xbxo using crossover cable. think it might be because I never used a network connection on my computer. There might be some setting that I need to adjust but by myself I would never be able to find it.
I have windows XP
xecuter 2 pro
Any help would be VERY appreciated

What IP address did you set it to (in the ini file)?
Have you set the IP address of the network card(NIC) on the PC?
EvoX ini file is
ip = 192.168.1.100
Defaultgateway = 192.168.1.1
Set your PC's NIC to something like
ip = 192.168.1.50
Defaultgateway = 192.168.1.1
You can do this by going to Control panel (assuming u r using Windows) and double-click on Network.
Check the properties of TCP/IP relating to your NIC and set it accordingly.

I've said it before and I will say it again... If you really don't want to understand networking and you want to get it up and running quickly/easily... Go buy a router... it's only $50 and You will probably waste that much in time trying to get static to work... Dont get me wrong. Getting static is not that hard, but its not as easy as using dhcp... If you really want to get it going with static then start by providing the info i-Ball asked for... Ip address, subnet, default gateway, for both the xbox (in the ini file) and on your computer (Control panel, networking, tcpip, properties... something like that)

I've been through all this a few weeks ago with the same configuration (exept I've got win2000 and matrix) (twisted cable between pc and xbox).
We need some more info to determine what's going wrong here but I had similar problems. Here's what I did:
1 - be sure that staticip=yes on the cdrw (verify in setting in the evox menu)
2 - set the ip on your nic (e.g. in the post above), you don't need to set the gateway ip
3 - just to be sure, boot your pc after setting the nic ip
4 - connect the two
5 - turn on your xbox;
6 - verify that the xbox is connected with its static ip (I think the ip is displayed in the "front" evox screen if it has a connection, otherwise the ip field is blank)
6 - turn off your firewall
7 - in flashfxp; uncheck passive mode in the connection dialog
8 - connect to your xbox using the ip in step 5
This should do it, if not give us a more detailed description of what you've done and what's going on...

1) I made sure that the staticp= yes
2 - I set up the ip on my nic
3 - I booted my pc many times.
4 - I connect the two (xbox & pc)
5 - I turned on my xbox
6 - In evox screen I went to system util then settings. Where it says type: static
Line status: 100/full Duplex
Ethernet maz address: 00:50:F2:21:FF:FF
setup network: Yes
default gateway: 192.168.0.1
I FXP on evox is enabled also
6 - firewall is turned off
7 - in flashfxp; I went to options, the preferences then proxy/ firewall and then unchecked passive.
opened flash FXP and when to quickconnect and tried to connect using IP 192.168.0.3 entered user name:xbox password: xbox
I get a timed-out error when connecting.

thanks for the help anyways but It was when I created the network bridge. I didn't have too. By doing so I just caused complications.
Works okay now
thanks to all that helped.
