    Default Enabling FTP in ATV 2.3.1

    I took the plunge and upgraded to 2.3.1 only to find that Patchstick doesn't include FTP at present (due to some issues).

    So I tried following this: Enable FTP Server - AwkwardTV

    This is fine except you need a copy of ftpd from Tiger.

    Fortunately I find this post which includes one:
    Issue 104 - atvusb-creator - Feature request: enable FTP - Google Code

    But I am still having an issue. When I try to connect via FTP I get the error:
    Code:
    launchproxy[191]: execv(): Bad CPU type in executable
    I assume the issue is I have the wrong ftpd version? Is there anyway to get the right one? Thanks.

    OK have resolved this. The ftpd linked in the Google Code post above is for the wrong CPU (PowerPC instead Intel - guessing). Getting the Intel CPU version worked.

    hello atv god First af all big big thank you and big respect what you are doing with atv.
    I did all steps as in in link, but I'm windows user and dont have ftpd tiger file. I used that one with ppc I think. Other problem, when I try to write comand launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist I receive response that is nothing to launch..... .

    Help davilla, please . I have enough scp or sftp via Winscp with 700kbps.

    Mate, your a star !

    The above link says "Alternately, you can find an updated ftpd in MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.11Intel.dmg".

    you can wget this (assuming you installed via atvusb-creator and included binutils) directly to the atv and mount it there. It is an OSX box after all

    see Idiot's Guide to Basic UNIX Commands - AwkwardTV for info on how to mount a dmg in OSX.

    mount the dmg, pull out /usr/libexec/ftpd and there you go.

    I've installed PureFTP. But I'm getting max 2000kbps from pc to atv, and double from atv to pc. ??? router on wireless N, pc as well. ??? Will ftp via ftpd be faster than pureftp?
