    I tried to search for this but couldn't come up with much. It seems ftpii works well enough for everyone else, but something with my setup is causing me problems.

    After installing it, I tried connecting with SmartFTP. Connections were few and far between. Without changing anything, and sometimes not even restarting ftpii, I could connect one minute and not the next and vice versa. I've only been able to fully connect and actually browse the server once, every other time the connection either gets refused or it gets to the step just previous of the ls and stops.

    I can use the built-in ftp windows program through command line and I'm able to connect just fine every time. This is the only way I was able to transfer anything to the wii, albeit slowly (150kb/s) over a 100mbit network. However, starting over on another wii, I need to install MMM and don't have a way besides ftpii to access the sd card. I should be able to create a folder to upload MMM but something is stopping me from using "mkdir" through the command-line ftp server. I get the error 502 and the Wii shows up as me trying to use the command "XMKD," which I guess it doesn't recognize.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me why, for example, I can almost never connect to the server through SmartFTP, why connections to the server over my LAN is slow and why I can't seem to create directories on the server.


    EDIT: I think the connections were slow/shaky because I'd forgotten the Wii was set to use a wireless connection. Now that I can connect, I need to upload things into the folders on the SD card. However, the permissions on the folders aren't set to allow write. I seem unable to change the permissions this time (I did this before and it did work). What seems to be happening is when I open the properties of the sd root folder, ftpii begins waiting for client connections. I just waited with the properties window open, ready to hit OK and apply the permission changes until ftpii timed out waiting for a connection. The commands went through but even though I told them to apply the changes recursively, they didn't seem to take on all the folders.

    I did this again on the single folder I'm trying to write into and thought the properties just weren't updating, so I tried to reconnect to the server and it wasn't finding a connection. Restarting the server allows me to connect again and I see the folders have the permissions that I set. However, I still cannot upload or create folders. Trying to copy the folder over returns the "550 No such file or directory" error and just trying to create a folder returns the "502 Command not implemented" error. I encountered 550 before but it seems to be related to permissions. I'm not sure what else it could be if the folder I'm trying to move into is set to write to.

    When I try to copy the whole folder, it seems to try to do SIZE and I guess the folder doesn't exist, so it doesn't pass and the connection fails. This small excerpt doesn't make much sense to me:
    Code:
    [23:11:43] 257 "/sd/APPS/WIIMC/" is current directory.
    [23:11:43] MKD MMM
    [23:11:43] 257 "/sd/APPS/WIIMC/MMM/" directory created.
    [23:11:43] CWD /sd/APPS/WIIMC
    [23:11:43] 250 CWD command successful.
    [23:11:43] PWD
    [23:11:43] 257 "/sd/APPS/WIIMC/" is current directory.
    [23:11:43] SIZE MMM
    [23:11:43] 213 0
    [23:11:43] MDTM MMM
    [23:11:43] 502 Command not implemented.
    It creates the directory, changes it to the current directory, but then tries to use MDTM, fails, and turns the folder into a file.


    In the end, I used SmartFTP's command line to MKD manually (not letting it do the commands it didn't recognize), and using windows' ftp client to upload the 3 files for MMM (as SmartFTP was having trouble with uploading and I didn't care to look up the steps to properly opening a connection through the command line).

    ftpii is one of those apps that what you see is what you get. There isn't any configuration options that I know of but I will try to help.

    1. What System Menu are you on?
    2. Did you use the ftpii version from this guide?
    3. What version of HBC do you have installed?
    4. Is HBC running on IOS58?
    5. Have you tried FireFTP as in the guide? I haven't tried any other ftp client so I can't give you any advice on other clients.

    Oh wow, quick response. I was actually going to add that it seems like there's miscommunication between the server and client, the server goes into waiting for a client connection and the client just times out waiting for a response from the server.

    But let's see here:
    1) Not sure what you mean by this
    2) Yeah, 0.21 is the version I have
    3) If the number in the top right is the version, I have 1.0.8
    4) I'm using IOS58 v 24.32
    5) I have not, will look into that right now


    EDIT: FireFTP seems to suffer from the same ailment. As I connect, it goes to ask the server for a list of directories, the server goes into a wait for data connection loop instead, client expects information and eventually times out when it doesn't get it.


    EDIT 2: As I look closer, it does appear I have version 0.21 instead of the version here, 0.22. I'm not sure, though, why 0.21 would go into such a loop like this. I will have to try later to get 0.22 on there before trying again. Thanks for your help though.

    If you are on system menu 4.3 and you didn't use the version from this guide then that would explain your problems. The version in this guide isn't the official version so it can't be downloaded from wiibrew. That version isn't compatabe with sm 4.3 as dvdx isn't compatabe and is required. Use the version linked in this guide and try again.

    Ah, yes, after installing 0.22 instead, it seems to work fine. It seems a couple extra commands used at the end of the transfer (MDTM and STAT) aren't implemented, those are the only errors I get. It still copies the file fine, though.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the slow response. Did you download the files included in this guide? It sounds like you didn't. Do so and try again.

    Hi, and thanks for answering.
    I dident use fire ftp sicen I dont use firefox.
    Strange thing is that i get connected with my ftp, and its stable. But I cannot find the usb hdd by the folders. Is should be the same port on the WII as you run games from right?

    Im not talking about fireftp. I was talking about ftpii itself included in this guide. The official release still requires DVDx which was broke by 4.3 update. The one included in this guide doesn't require DVDx.

    The symptoms you are describing are similar to what I have experienced before finding this version.
