    Is it possible to FTP to the Wii HDD after softmod with boot2?

    So I was curious. Iv gotten homebrew and all installed and it works perfect, and there was a lot of nice programs I could download.


    My kids uses the wii for gaming so I was hoping there was some way to FTP over some childrens movies, series like ducktales, superman, he-man etc. Is this possible somehow or do I need the HDD to pc every time? And if so does anyone a guide or a tip where I can start and maybee give me an idea if the transfeer speed is ok.

    Great Brian, Il look into it, and thats the recomended FTP option wit best results?
    Im sure its faster on HDD, but Id like it as a standalone so I can transfeer what I need, when I need it and as a backup on the net.
    Is there any chance of setting the wii up as a static IP aswel?

    I use ftpii, it works well when I'm too lazy to plug my SD card to the computer. There is a problem with it though, it will drop connection sometimes for no reason. It also doesn't fully support SDHC cards. Sometimes it will not detect that a flash drive or HDD is plugged up either.

    It gets the job done though.
    I'm a bass junkie, so send me some heavy tracks!

    You can also stream media from your pc through your network with WiiMC.

    Great thanks.
    IS there also an easy way to add things like WiiMC and wii64 as channels instead of starting them in homebrew?

    Yeah search for forwarder channels. It will put a channel on the system menu. When u click on it, it will look for the boot.dol in your app folder and open the app from the front page.

    Edit- the wiimc one is in the guide I linked in my last post. U can also create your own. Search for the guide "how to create forwarder channels"

    Mutch to learn and where to place them
    But it looks like Wii64 have had an issue with channel forwarding. I was suprised I dident find that and the forwarder for WIIMC in the list in Homebrew.C do download.
    Il try your above installer for WiiMC atleast, and take it from there
