FTP server for Wii
FTPii is an FTP server for the Wii, giving people easy access to their SD cards without having to eject it from the Wii itself.
You will need an FTP client in order to connect to your Wii, but once you have got one set up, all you have to do is use wiiload to send FTPii to your Wii and once the network has initialised it's good to go.
|0.0.6||Incorporated SD-card and USB hot-swapping patch. (thanks srg!)|
|0.0.5||Added support for buggy FTP clients that use "LIST -aL" or similar, at the expense of breaking paths that begin with '-'.|
|Compiled with corruption-fix and usbstorage libfat patches. (thanks svpe!)|
|Uncommented FAT read-ahead support (oops)|
|0.0.4||Added rename support, as well as append and resume.|
|Fixed _another_ nasty crash bug introduced in 0.0.3 when creating directories. (thanks nilsk123!)|
|0.0.3||Multi-client support (up to 5), using LWPs. Unfortunately this makes things quite a bit slower, due to the reduced buffer sizes.|
|This has the nice side-effect of making clients like FileZilla work.|
|0.0.2||Fixed display/crash bug when creating directories. (thanks feesh!)|
|Enabled fat read-ahead caching. Increases read speed from ~80KB/s to ~250KB/s for me. (thanks svpe!)|
The best way to get a feel for ftpii is to install it, using itself. When you download ftpii, use wiiload (with the Homebrew Channel) to start it up. When the network has initialised, use your favourite FTP client to connect to you wii. You can enter anything for a user name and password right now. Once you have logged in, navigate to the apps folder on your SD card, and upload the ftpii directory (containing boot.elf, meta.xml and icon.png) here.
Once you are done altering files, close the connection from your client, then push the A button on Wiimote #1. This will bring you out of ftpii and back to the HBC application selection menu. ftpii will now be in the list to run again without the need of Wiiload.
Some users are experiencing issues with certain FTP clients- in order to help development progress and to notify potential users of which FTP clients not to use please post any FTP clients that you have had limited or no success with whilst using ftpii.
