gtX Dash - Transferring files box to box
Transferring files from one xbox to another xbox in 3 easy steps!
you will need
2 gtX dash mods with v1.03 or later
1 crossover cable
Some time to read this properly
Step 1 connect xboxes and crossover cables.
This should be self explanatory.
Step 2 Setup the IP adresses of each xbox.
Launch the ftp sever (L trig + R trig + A, or its under - applications - file managers - ftp (pc)
This is the ftp screen, it is just a 'bare bones' evox setup.
Go into the settings section and set 'use static IP' to YES and
the ip address to 192.168.0.100
Scroll to the bottom and select 'save and exit', then reboot your xbox for the settings to take effect.
Repeat this for the second xbox but set the ip address to 192.168.0.1
Step 3 Launch the FTP client on the xbox you want to transfer files TO.
The ftp client is located under applications - file managers - ftp client ..see here
Press the 'start' button to bring up the menu. Choose 'Select Server'. Then the first time you connect you will need to setup the server details you are transferring from (ie the other xbox's ip etc). To do this select 'add server' . The first option you are setting is the servers IP, so enter the IP address of the box you will be downloading from, it should be displayed on the xbox's ftp server screen in the top right hand corner.
TIP : To enter the number 1 with the onscreen typing pad, push your left analog stick to the top left hand corner, your right analog stick towards you (down), then pull the right trigger, instructions for deleting are onscreen (x to delete). Once you have typed in the ip address of the box running the ftp server ie '192.168.0.1' , press Y for OK.
The next is screen is the server port, by default is 21, so just leave blank and press Y.
The next is screen is the 'server name' , you can leave blank and it will contain just the ip address and port number (ie something like 192.168.0.1:21). So just leave blank and press Y unless you want a customized server name.
The next is screen is the 'user name' , it is already setup to 'xbox', so just press Y again.
The next is screen is the 'password' , it is already setup to 'xbox', so just press Y once again.
This will bring you back to the 'Select Server' box, where you should now see the xbox servers ip, press A to connect it. If all is well you should now have a local and remote window. The left side is the xbox you are controlling, the right side is the server you are about to download from. On the remote side find the data you want to transfer. the controls are as follows :
- A - go into dir
- B - go out of dir
- X - Select multiple files
- Y - select all
- white - add to queue and start transferring
So to complete a transfer select on the left hand side your destination drive and folder location (possibly f:\gameslist), on the right hand side (remote) select what you want to download, then hit the white button. You should get a progress bar with file details come up!
TIP : do not make queues too large as we have found it to lock up the xbox. happy ftping and if you are still have trouble contact your local agent and have the code word 'bardus' ready so we know youve at least read this help file!
