DSFTP lets your DS act as an FTP server, in theory allowing you to connnect to the DS from any FTP client. I was unable to get it to work -- my FTP client would connect but then hang with a message about waiting for the welcome page.

ComBox is another app that contains both an FTP client and server and other useful tools (for example a file browser that can view, move, delete, and rename files). The main downside of ComBox is that it's a little more difficult to set up and use than DSFTP, but it works for me. One difference between the two is that for some reason ComBox uses its own WiFi setup (nearly identical to the native DS WiFi setup), so even if your DS is already set up for WiFi, you'll have to reconfigure it for ComBox. ComBox also has more documentation available.

Yes, DSFTP allows you to transfer files to the ds and computer over wifi. I didnt set up my DSFTP, i just use the settings it gives me. I do not know what BFTP Configurator is. If you want to access the DS, just open up "my computer" and type in ftp:xxx.xxx.x.x. The x's are the ds ip address.

how would i get passed the "user and password" problem?

I've tried typing ftp:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

with the error

"Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed in the folder name correctly and that you have permission to access this folder

Details:
The connection with the server on was reset"

Start up the FTP server on the NDS.

Use an FTP client (such as Filezilla) on the PC side to connect to your NDS.

Note that I couldn't get DSFTP to work. Filezilla timed out after saying that it connected but was "waiting for welcome page" or something like that. ComBox worked fine though.

Well...the ComBox website has a pretty good explanation of all the setup options. The good news is that you can set everything from within the menus of ComBox on the NDS (you don't have to edit any settings files by hand). The bad news is that it's a little more difficult to set up than DSFTP is.

Basically, you have to go into the WiFi settings and set up your WiFi connection (even if you've already set up your NDS for other apps -- it uses its own WiFi setup for some reason). I *think* there may be a command that copies installed WiFi settings, but I'm not sure about that. Either way, it's nearly identical to the standard DS WiFi setup, so you would use the exact same settings.

Then you have to go in and set up your FTP server or client (depending on how you want to do it). The easiest is probably to run the server on the NDS and a client (like Filezilla) on your PC, but you can go the other way too (by running a server like SmallFTP on your PC). Once you've configured the ComCox FTP server, start the server. Then run Filezilla and connect to the server.
