    Ive been having endless problems FTPing to my modded xbox. Anyone know what setting on my Mac I should have so that it will work? My xbox works just fine with my PC so im assuming something is off or set wrong on the mac side. Any ideas?

    Also I can play Halo online via XLINK KAI using my mac's wireless connection. So they can communicate with one another.

    If someone who regularly FTP's could just tell me what settings they have thatd be a big help too. Thanks!

    just to let you know, iv never ftp-ed but my thoughts are that you might have set up the firewall to block ftp ports. try going to system prefs -> sharing(i think) -> firewall and just allow ftp or turn off the firewall.

    just my 2 cents

    Yup!

    More specifically, System Preferences...->Sharing->Services, and enable "FTP Access". You can leave your firewall on.

    I never set up anything, when I'm in my evoX dash, I enter the xbox's ip address in the location field, then xbox:xbox for the username and pass.
