4. Bring the Internet to TiVo > 54. Setting Up an FTP server

Setting Up an FTP server

Transfer files to and from your TiVo with the ease of FTP.

FTP used to be the de facto way to move files around the Net, but HTTP is quickly catching up. However, despite the efforts of WebDAV (http://www.webdav.org/) and the like, an FTP server is still about the easiest way to push things to a computer. There’s a plethora of client software out there for Mac, Windows, Unix, you name it. And, thanks to “sorphin,” there’s an FTP server for your TiVo, part of the TiVo Utilities project (http://tivoutils.sourceforge.net/).

Grab the FTP server for your TiVo from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tivoutils/tivoftpd.ppc.gz?download. With that in hand, you’re faced with a classic chicken-and-egg problem: how are you to get the FTP server over to TiVo without FTP access? Hopefully you left your serial port running with Bash, because you are going to use rz [Hack #36].
