Are you running Linux on your Xbox as well as your desktop?

My first guess would be to check the FTP Server that is running on the Xbox.

Without knowing more about what software you are running on your Xbox I am afraid that I can be of little more help then that.

Note that I do not use FTP, or an Xbox. For my file transfer needs I tend to use something secure such as SCP.

It sounds like you tried to use an IP address on your linux computer that is already in use. Either use DHCP to automatically assign an address (If there is a server, like a NAT router on your lan), or choose a different IP address.

thanks for the replys

Im using linux on my computer and unleashx as my xbox dashboard. I am really, really new to using something other then windows. I want to understand what the problem is. I have my xbox connected to comp from an ethernet card, modem connected to comp from the motherboard. I don't see why my xbox would have the same ip as my computer. I haven't changed my ip for my xbox since I switched to linux either. Thanks for any help.

After further thinking about the problem, there is a good chance that jschiwal is right in the fact that there is a networking issue.

Two questions to try to sort this out:
1) When you open up a terminal on your computer and run `ifconfig` what is the output? (This should show if Linux recognizes the Xbox as being there)
2) Was the same cable connection setup working with another O/S or configuration? (Two ethernet ports do not attach to each other unless you use a crossover cable or hub)

this is the ifconfig output:

Im using the same crossover cable and the same ethernet card I was using with windows.
Thanks

Do you have only one NIC card? What is the IP address of the xbox.
If the xbox has a different IP address, is it on the same network.

You want the two hosts to be on the same subnet.
Linux IP: 69.132.95.172
XBox: 192.168.0.102

These two IP addresses are on different networks.
Do you have a router or another device that has a DHCP server. I think the address that your linux box is using is a fallback IP address if DHCP doesn't supply an IP address. If you don't have a DHCP server, you will need to manually setup the IP, netmask, gateway address, and the nameserver addresses.

Your Linux box should use an address that starts with 192.168.0.
If it isn't being used by another host, 192.168.0.100 would work with a netmask of 255.255.255.0

If you have a router, it probably has an address of 192.168.0.1 .
If that is the case, use this address as your gateway address.

If you have a cable/dsl NAT router, it probably has a dhcp server in it and using that in your configuration can supply these settings for you.
On the other hand, if you don't have internet access then you won't have nameserver addresses or a gateway.
