The Blackbox FTP server for the Playstation 3 system is a homebrew application which turns your PS3 system into a full FTP server, giving you access to both internal and external hard drive. It allows you to upload and update PKG files on the system; the first step in turning your Playstation 3 console into a personal computer running all various types of homebrew available.
Installing the FTP server is easy, first requiring you to use a USB stick or portable hard drive to get it onto the system and a second step by installing the PKG file under "Install PKG file", depending on your custom firmware version.
After installed, the Blackbox FTP Server can be run from the games menu. The program will run in the background of the system and you'll be given access to your PS3 system via FTP without a username or password. The IP address you should connect to will normally be displayed on the screen. The actual location of the Blackbox FTP Server will depend on your router type. If the FTP server does not display your IP address, please consult your router configuration to figure out the IP address of Blackbox.
The program normally runs without issue, but trying to connect with multiple connections may slow down or even crash the server, so setting a maximum of 1 concurrent connection in your FTP client should solve that.
Blackbox PS3 FTP Server is software which can transfer files to the PS3.
