won't initialize

There is a bug in this, (still great)if you do not get the program running before HBC gets a connection this just decides it won't initialize. Great job. Pinball wizard 23:39, 9 June 2008 (CEST)

Hm, I test it with wiiload and so I have to wait for HBC get connection and it runs fine srg 15:41, 19 June 2008


I do not have this problem either. Typically, if ftpii is having trouble initialising the network, my HBC is as well - joedj

FileZilla Windows Error

Sometimes when you finish transfering/deleting multiples files from your pc using FileZilla, and you want to return to loader, it show en exepetion and Code Dump

Boogie USB microphone error

If you have a boogie USB microphone in the USB slot when starting the app, the application crashes with a code dump like this (only last three lines from dump below) :

800345c8 : 8164FFFC-81230000-20EBFFF8-7D443A14 800345d8 : 7F8A4840-419C0010-80C30004-7F8A3040 800345e8 : 409D0010-7D000124-38600000-4E800020

So unplug your USB microphone :) robertfisk 15:31, 21 June 2008 )

It doesn't like my USB keyboard either. Felix 08:18, 2 July 2008 (CEST)
My USB keyboard doesn't crash 0.0.10. This release may also fix the microphone issue, please let me know! (preferably via email or issue tracker) - joedj


while using Konqueror, it sometimes crashes FTPii by displaying a Code Dump...

When there is a 'Code Dump', you can't return to the homebrew channel and youhave to turn off the wii, it would be nice if it would automatically restart FTPii instead (not not do Core Dumps).

I will try to post the error log next time I have this error.

Cyber Duck

NOTE: Technically, this is a bug in Cyber Duck, but this behaviour should be working as of ftpii 0.0.5. I will leave this notice here for a while. - joedj

(POSSIBLY) Terminal FTP App

Gives "550 Not a directory" error when attempt to transfer data, but Fetch is working fine. Terminal can open the directory, make new directories, delete old ones- but when I use put filename, it returns 550 Not a directory. Possible misuse of Terminal? Please advise. Will post full log tomorrow

Freezes on Exit

After ouputting the goodbye message it seems to be sticking and not loading the HBc and I'm having to do a hard reset. JD 20:33, 13 June 2008 (CEST)

Please feel free to raise this at if the problem is still occurring with 0.0.6 - joedj


Is the following situation possible (eventually)?

  • The Wii is in stand-by mode.
  • An altered client sends a (sort of) wake-on LAN signal to the Wii
  • FTP server is activated
  • File transfer
  • FTP connection is closed
  • Wii returns to standby mode

What will be needed to accomplish this? How can I help :)

I don't think we know how to do things while in stand-by least, I don't ;-) - joedj

Changes of each Versions?

Hey, whatabout a log of stuff like when an update was released and what was improved? Would be really cool to have that on the FTPii Page!

--Xyrion 01:00, 20 June 2008 (CEST)Yeah, that would be cool.
--- meh, joedj just told me the changes are in the readme.txt, so I copied it on the wiki today, have fun! ChronoX
There is a brief changelog and todo list in the included README.txt, and the full subversion history from 0.0.6 onwards is available from but it would be great if someone also wants to keep the wiki up to date - joedj

Wired FTP

Could this be adapted to use wired networks, rather than wireless, for faster downloading or eventually the ability to access files on your computer? Not soon, but in theory.

Probably, but it won't be by me, as I don't have or plan to buy a wired ethernet adaptor. If someone wants to donate one, I'll certainly have a crack at it =P But I don't think the wireless network is currently a performance bottleneck - joedj
In fact, srg uses this with wired usb adaptor already - joedj
How? Plug the USB to the comp? I'm just thinking of faster transfer of large files (AKA movies) to my Wii, or potentially the possibility of the Wii accessing files (i.e playing movies) that are ON my computer without transferring them (although I suspect that that would be a completely unrelated app.)
No, plug a USB-->Ethernet adaptor into the Wii and plug that into the router. Muzer 10:21, 22 June 2008 (CEST)

Wired FTP Speed ?

I heard that the USB on the wii can only be used as a USB 1.1 and not a USB 2.0, if this is true, it would mean that it should be hard to get the 100Mb/s of a wired network. Have anyone tried to transfer files with a USB network adapter ? if yes, is the speed that the data transfers ? wireless speed is an issue, in fact, I tried yesterday to transfer a 40Mb file and it took 7 minutes :( Anyway, you've done a great job developing ftpii :) --Gerome 14:16, 10 July 2008 (CEST)


Is it possible to somehow implement SFTP? It would also be nice if we could specify the password/username... Xyrion 00:59, 20 June 2008 (CEST)

Guess that will be added, like you see it's version 0.0.6 currently which early ;)
Cool! :) Thanks for making this wiibrew, we really needed it. Xyrion 00:59, 20 June 2008 (CEST)
I'm NOT the developer of this application, i just guessed that it may be added in a future version :D
Yeah, guess we should add that soon =P It would be nice if (when?) we could pass args via HBC - joedj
We just got the password part and I can confirm it works. Thanks dev! Xyrion 22:32, 4 July 2008 (CEST)
No worries =P - joedj
