Angry linux ftp xbox???


My problem is that I can't ftp to my xbox from my linux machine properly. I use gftp (but I've tried axyftp and another one too). I'm able to establish a connection between the two which allows me to see the drives (as folders) on my xbox. but whe I try to change to a folder which contains files (ex. /F/Games/) I get an error: "Invalid response '2' received from server." and I get disconnected.

It's not the firewall that's causing problem because it doesn't matter if it's enabled or disabled. I really want help with this!!

Thanks

I had a problem with ftping into Xbox, so here's a post about the program I used... Hope it helps!(It's only text-based, but hopefully that's not a problem).

I ran an Xbox version of Slackware on my Xbox for a while, but I can't say that I had the same problem (I converted my Xbox to a dedicated Linux ftp server running vsftpd).

Anyway, it sounds like a problem with the FATX permissions on your Xbox hdd. I would just cheat by tarring-up the entire dir, then send the tarfile to your Linux machine via ftp or scp. Depending on how you've modded your Xbox (software mod, Cromwell bios, modchip), if you have the Xbox Linux bootloader installed, you can log into your Xbox from your Linux machine and run your tar and scp commands from there.

OK.. I have a chip-modded XBOX but I DON'T have Linux on it. just the evolution x thing. I just want to transfer games and videos from my computer to my xbox using the built-in ftp support on the xbox.

I've discovered that it's probably not the files on the xbox that causes the trouble. The problem is that I'm only able to go 2 steps down the folder tree. (after two subdirectories I encounter the problem I've described.) Do you understand?

Thanks for trying to help!

I've tried lftp now and it works. Thanks! I seem to have exactly the same problem as you...

It would be nice if someone knows how to use gftp...

Code:
mirror -R
Does the reverse of mirror. So it will take an entire directory on your PC and mirror it to the current directory of your xbox. Hope that helps.
