An FTP client for the Nintendo DS, using the Woopsi GUI development system.

The application is in early development, but can still connect and download files wirelessly via FTP.

User guide

User must have wireless settings saved to the firmware for this to function, done using a retail game. Upon booting the program, a connection is established from the firmware settings.

The windows are drag-able with the touch screen. Swap DS screens using the control in the upper right hand corner of the touch screen.

Change fields for the login credentials by hitting enter, this cycles through the different text boxes and allows to input from the keyboard. Once everything is entered click connect.

From here, navigating the directory structures is simple, double tap on directories to change to them (they are highlighted white).

Download files by selecting them on the remote listing, navigate to where you want to download on the local side and simply click the < button. Multiple file download is supported, but be aware the gui freezes while download is running and if the file is large it could take quite some time.

Known issues

Directories containing a large number of files (somewhere around 400+) the program freezes when changing to them

Upload is broken and the button is disabled, currently trying to determine if it is with the ftplib or based in the dswifi library.

Handling failed connections is not very elegant. It just hangs. Will be fixed soon. For now, make sure you can connect successfully with other homebrew / retail games!

Some ftp sites have long welcome messages. We have not yet handled this and it will probably hang if you try to connect to one of these sites.
