    Hey guys, sometimes I'm lazy to screw up the battery cover from my n3ds and take the microsd into my pc. Yesterday I tried the FTPbrony app on the hbc out. Little files did transferred fast but at some games or backups, it takes like 1 hour. On my ps3, I can speed up with this when I connect an LAN Cable between ps3 and pc on it. On the n3ds isn't it possible to add something like this. Is there another why to speed up the ftp process via wlan?

    No, you can't just speed up the FTP transfer rate.
    Removing the backcover is way faster then using FTP when you're transfering backups from the pc to your 3ds. ( Well.. you could always just use .tik files and download your backups from the eshop :P )

    Hell
    Use the microSD transfer thing in settings, it is sorta faster, and safer, but taking your sd card out is still better

    Alright. I try out the ticket method. Could I've been banned with that?

    Hardly. Samba shares are incredibly flaky and do not resume transfers properly. If there's a network hiccup, you could end up with corrupted files, unlike with FTP. Not to mention that Windows likes to cap certain types of TCP traffic, so transfers are actually slower in some cases.

    1.30mb/s is the best you'll get :)

    From my experiences with hb ftp and using the micro sd transfer applet, ftp has almost always had issues with moving large files. This may stem from winscp, but i have lost intrest in transfering stuff wirelessly

    Are you using the later builds of FTPd (or one of its forks)? You can get around ~1.5mb/s. It's not the greatest, but it's workable and probably the best we're going to get with its hardware.

    I'll try a newer build of FTP and try out the micro sd management thing. If this doesn't work well with big files, I'll force to get with these tiks on games

    The MicroSD Manager (or whatever it's called) is just a glorified SMB server, which has a lot more network overhead than FTP.

    So with the newest build of ftbrony I came on 820KiB/s - 840KiB/s. It doesn't take alot time for 500MB games

    FileZilla is your friend. WinSCP kinda implies what it's geared toward; SCP, the SSH transfer protocol. This is actually much more efficient than FTP, though, and I would love to see SSH come to the 3DS.

    You should be getting more than that with the newer builds. Then again, I have no clue what your wireless environment is like.
