Well this is a neat surprise. I gave it a try. I can connect to the FTP server on my DS, but if I do a directory listing in the root, it gives me an error. Reading through the translated readme, I got the idea to try to change directories to the "GameTitle_Gamecode_RomVer directory". So if I use cd with the "Rom Title" from the bottom of the screen and replace the spaces with underscores(for example, lower screen says "Rom Title : FUNGAME JSWE 00", I would use the command
and it will switch to that directory. Then I could do a directory listing, and get FUNGAME_JSWE_00.sav, .nds, or .txt. The .sav transfers quickly, as does the .txt which gives rom information similar to the lower DS screen. It aborted the .nds transfer shortly after I started.
I tried all of this using the DOS FTP command, it may work better with a GUI client. Oh, it also has the option to change roms. If you select that, it will ask you to remove the DS cart and insert a different one. So you can keep the FTP server up and switch games without having to power cycle the DS. Neat.
Here's the Japanese readme translated to English:
====== NDS Backup Tool FTPd V0.10 ======
To FTP server converting DS, at Wifi to connect, the SAVE data and ROM image of NDS ROM
It is the tool which is exchanged from the FTP client of PC side.
Because you can think that trouble such that the SAVE data of NDS ROM breaks occurs

Any one having a ftp client to recommend, I'm usually FileZilla but it uses multiple sessions and "NDS Backup Tool FTPd" doesnt support multiple sessions.
I need a ftp clientthat uses the same session to transfer files as it talks to the ftp on.
I am trying to use this program to back up my NDS ROMs. I can connect without issue and I can backup the text files and the inf files. But when I try to back up the nds file, after a few seconds I get an error and it says the connection has been reset by the server. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
