    hey peeps, im trying to hook my wii up to my FTP server on my pc(for possibly easier transfering of wad files) through wiixplorer r212* (newest), ive got all the settings set up for it in the "network settings/ftp client" to hook up to it, and when i go back to the main page of the GUI , i see where u click the sd card icon in the top left, it has "ftp1/", but nothing shows up when i click on it.......ive read on their project site that it needs IOS202 with base 38, instead of 57 like i have installed for WIIMC(which i dont need anymore since its use with IOS58), ........ok so ive downloaded hermes 222v4 installer which allows you to install IOS202 with base 38, but somewhere along the lines it fails.....is this because i dont have the base wad in my "root" folder of the sd card?......and if so how do i get it back, as i dont remember deleting it , or moving it anywhere.
    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    just a suggestion, but try hermes v5 or v5.1 instead of v4

    edit: hermes installers work differently, they use the 0000001 folder for offline installations instead of the wad on the root of the sd card like waninkoko's installers. If u use ModMii to download w/e base IOS u need, u can just turn on the option to save the 00000001 folder before downloading.

    edit2: but if ur going to do that, u may as well just use ModMii's advanced download feature to build cIOS202v5[38], then just install it using a wad manager instead of the cIOS installer, but up 2 u

    ok , so im taking it, as there hasnt been any replies in a few days, that this is an impossible thing to do??.....if so oh well not a big thing, just thought it might make things easier for moving wiiware/VC games to the sd card

    I have never tried connecting Wii with FTP server running on PC. However I did use WiiXplorer to run FTP server on the Wii and use FTP client (in this case just Windows Explorer) to transfer files both ways between Wii and PC. From time to time, I have got problems that somehow the FTP client cannot connect to the server. Therefore, nowadays I just set-up a shared folder (SMB) in my PC and then use SMB feature on the WiiXplorer to copy files between Wii and PC. This feature so far always works for me.
