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 initialized it's good to go.
For subversion changes since 0.0.6, see http://code.google.com/p/ftpii/source/list
|0.0.14||Rebuilt with latest libfat CVS to fix delete corruption bug and speed up opening large files (thanks rodries!)|
|0.0.13||Async networking, cleaner exiting, data cxn timeout, power button, gc controller|
|0.0.12||boot.elf rebuilt with patched libfat to set archive flag on new files, allowing Data Management to see uploaded save games (e.g. TP hack).|
|0.0.11||boot.elf rebuilt with patched libfat to stop read-ahead cache providing old data. (thanks dhewg!), Attempt to fix USB ethernet adapter by initialisaing network subsystem before FAT, Added release_date to meta.xml.|
|0.0.10||boot.elf rebuilt with patched libogc to fix startup crashes when USB devices are present, added SITE PASSWD and SITE NOPASSWD for controlling the authentication remotely.|
|0.0.9||Added authentication - can specify a password using directory name or wiiload arg.|
|0.0.8||Fixed MKD bug that caused working directory to change to new directory automatically. Added no-op SITE CHMOD command to prevent some FTP from displaying skip/abort/retry type prompts.|
|0.0.7||Added virtual path support for /sd and /usb. (thanks srg!), Added SITE LOADER command to return to loader, Added SITE CLEAR command to clear the console, Support for starting without a device connected (thanks srg!), Support for SD Gecko (though currently disabled in libfat) (thanks srg!), Re-enable read-ahead when remounting (thanks srg!)|
|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!)|
Copy the ftpii folder to /apps on the SD card.
There is also a way to install ftpii without removing the SD card from the Wii. Use wiiload (with the Homebrew Channel) to boot ftpii. When the network has initialized, 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.
Setting Login Password
- To specify a password via The Homebrew Channel, rename the apps/ftpii directory to apps/ftpii_YourPassword.
- To specify a password via wiiload, pass an argument e.g. wiiload boot.elf YourPassword.
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.
- NOTE: This is not a great way to track or report compatibility issues with ftpii. Please use the issue tracker at http://code.google.com/p/ftpii/issues/list
- This list is not regularly updated when new versions of ftpii are released. It does not generally provide developers with enough information to be able to
- reproduce or fix a problem, and is usually just misleading. You are much better off using the issue tracker, or contacting me directly with specific problems. - joedj
