    • OpenPS3FTP
      is an open source FTP server for the PlayStation 3 by developer jjolano
      It supports the basic FTP commands that the typical user would need to transfer files in and out of their console.

      It also provides read/write access to the console's flash partition, by
      mounting /dev_blind. Currently, this server is optimized for stability over performance. A performance benefit is possible, but it seems libsysfs isn't cooperating. (Added support in v4.0b for better performance).

      This is a standalone utility but this code is used in various projects in the PS3 scene such as webMAN / Mod, Irisman, multiMAN, Rebug Toolbox and others..


    • [Version 4.1 - February 2, 2017]
      - This is a somewhat major release, with changes to the codebase to make it possible to compile on both PSL1GHT and the official CELL SDK. As proof, I have included CellPS3FTP in this release - which is basically an actual CELL SDK program with the OpenPS3FTP codebase for the actual server.

      - Version 4.0 brings a new FTP server engine, and this version now builds up on top of that.

      - See the updated changelog and readme documents for more info.
