    try starting over again following these steps:

    step 1
    On xbox goto system utils > settings > network

    step 2
    change settings to
    setup network : yes
    use static IP : yes
    ip : 192.168.0.3
    subnetmask : 255.255.255.0
    default gateway : 192.168.0.1
    DNS 0.0.0.0
    DNS 0.0.0.0

    STEP 3
    on your PC
    WIN 95/98/me
    right click *my network places* select *properties* then double click *internet protocol (TCP/IP)* then select *use following ip address*
    WIN XP
    right click *my network places* select *properties* then right click *local area connection* select *properties* then double click *internet protocol (TCP/IP)* then select *use following ip address*

    step 4
    now insert following
    IP address : 192.168.0.1
    Subnetmask : 255.255.255.0
    default gateway : 192.168.0.1

    when you have done this confirm all windows and restart your pc if necessary

    step 5
    connect your network cable (crossover if direct pc > xbox)

    step 6
    start flash fxp
    make a new connection
    insert following
    IP 192.168.0.3
    USERNAME : xbox
    PASSWORD : xbox (if still default)
    click connect


    ** crossover cable should look the same at both ends except the greens and oranges should be reversed.

    cheers

    1. are step 1 and step 2 about xbox?
    I understood the step 3 and 4.
    2. What is a crossover?
    is it a regular network cable(the ends are wider than those of telephone wires?)
    3. What is flash fxp?
    is it a software for my pc? so it can "talk" with the xbox. Where can i get it?

    in response 2 your questions:
    1. yes
    2. a crossover cable looks like a cat5 cable (rj45), just go 2 your local electronic store and ask 4 a crossover cable, mine cost me $7NZL for 3m. Also if u compare the ends of a crossover cable youll notice that the wires are different colours, this is not so with a normal cat5 cable.
    3. flashfxp is ftp software used 2 transfer files among computers/networks (in this case xbox 2 pc), you can find it at filemirrors.com


    if ur xbox isnt modded find sum1 in your area 2 mod it,
    u dont know what your missing out on.

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to get some help from you please.

    I have a Xbox v 1.0 with the chip installed by a profesional 2 year ago ( with Enigmah Final Chip )I can play a copy Xbox game OK .

    Now I want to copy xbox games myself..I'm following all the guides on this Site, Specially "Iggi" guide here , but after a week frustrating I still can't connect my Xbox to Pc using FTP, here is my info:

    - I using USB DSL modem , Crossover cable, Ethernet/NIC card , PC ( 1.7 Gh , 512 Ram ) connection., Xbox with EvoX 3935 running

    Here my Evox.ini:
    setup network : yes
    use static IP : yes
    Xbox IP : 192.168.0.3
    Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
    Default gateway : 192.168.0.1
    DNS 0.0.0.0
    DNS 0.0.0.0

    In my network & FlashFXP I did Exactly what you said,
    IP Address : 192.168.0.1
    FlashFXP : 192.168.0.3

    When I connect to Xbox , I check the network Status : it says Connected ( but I can only see the Pakets sent but no receive. Ex : sent 2450 , received 0 )and nothing appears in FlashFXP Screen. ( always have error messages "connection failed , lost".

    My EvoX run OK in xbox.
    I did try to Flash my Bios with Evox but can not , error message :" unwritable bios ".

    Oh, Do I need to Flash my Bios with Evox ? , because I still can play a Copy games so I guess I dont need to do that , right?

    Every time I connect PC to Xbox my Internet Speed kind a slow about 50%.

    Please give me some advices, I dont know what I did wrong here.
    Thank you for your help !!!
