    Hi. I'm checking my installed apps and saw that feature in fbi. What do i need to send a file through network on fbi.. I heard about a sockfile. Does it work with Android as well??
    I don't have a pc..well i have one but it doesn't work. I'd like to send Onega Ruby cia to my sd..

    Don't even bother with it for games, it's shit as hell slow and also will most likely fail somewhere during the process. Very small stuff does work though.

    Don't agree. Used it a lot of time to install games when i didn't had enough place for the cia + the game on my sd card. It never failed but yeah, it was slow.

    There's a CIA build of FTP-3DS.

    It uses a crappy version of SMB, anyway. So it has needless overhead and it's picky about what client you connect to it with. FTP will be far less frustrating with a bit more bandwidth.

    The Microsdcard management CIA v2 for pasta/RxTools works for FTP and it's about 7X faster and easier to setup.

    That's a bit odd. Seems like it would be a lot of work to make it into a FTP server, especially since there's plenty of FTP servers.

    Nope, just give it a name and password and windows detects it automatically in networks from file explorer.

    I just tested it. It's using SMB (Windows Sharing) not FTP.

    It's still faster for file transfer, and easier to setup for people whom don't understand IP addresses and ports... lol

    Huh, what speeds are you getting with it? I'm getting almost 300KB/s when sending to the 3DS and a little over 500KB/s when receiving with FTP, with SMB I'm getting around 50KB/s less. Which makes sense to me since FTP has less overhead.

    Same here, o3ds. it's much faster than FTP for me, and there's no worry about broken file transfers

    Only 1mb/s? That's a bit slow. Even uploading to my 3DS is around 300KB/s (bytes) or 2mb/s (bits). Then again, I have a wifi radio dedicated to my 3DS, no other device connects to it and it's on its own channel, optimized for the 3DS. The desktop I'm sending/receiving from is wired in.
