    Hey guys I need help setting up an FTP server. Could somebody give me a good and easy guide on setting up an FTP server using Filezilla or any other good FTP programs?

    Thanks in advance.

    To my knowledge, going the FireZilla Server route is the one of the simpler ways to go about this.
    Obviously I'm not incredibly versed in this subject, so hopefully the other people that know could chime in, etc.

    Why exactly do you need an FTP server?

    I ask because there's easier ways to host files.

    FTP Server or FTP client ?


    I don't see any need of a FTP server on your Pc for the wii.
    Are you sure you want a FTP server and not a FTP client ?

    There's no ftp client on the wii which let you connect to FTP servers on a computer.
    But there's a FTP server on the Wii (FTPii), and you need a FTP client on your computer to connect to the wii and browse the files present on the Wii and connected devices.
    Not the contrary.
