Hello Fellow PSP Junkies!!
This is a guide to using a program on your pc so that you can access your files on your pc with the web browser. This is useful if you have a small memory stick, or if you want to transfer your MP3's/Videos/Files WIRELESSLY! That's right, no more USB cables! :dance:
Things You Will Need:
PC With Internet Connection
HTTP File Server Software
The HTTP File Server software is the HFS File Server. It does the job, it looks good and best of all IT'S FREE. Get It From Here: http://www.rejetto.com/files/sw/hfs1.6a.zip
So Here We Go.
1. Unzip the files to a new folder.
2. Now run the HFS.EXE file. Now you should see "VIRTUAL FILE SYSTEM".
3. Right click in the empty area and select "NEW FOLDER".
3a. Rename the folder if you would like
4. Now it's time to add the files. Make sure you're in windows explorer.
5. Now find the file folder you want to access. Drag the folder from windows explorer across to the HFS program, and drop it on top of the new folder you just created.
6. Now an option should come up if you want to create a virtual file/folder, just ignore that and refuse to make them virtual.
7. You can add as many folders as you like.
8. You have completed most of the process now.
9. Minimize the window and keep it running.
10. To use this, you need to know your IP address, this can be found by doing the following
1. Click the Start button.
2. Click run.
3. Type "cmd" without the quotes and press enter, a black box will appear.
4. Type "ipconfig" without the quotes and press enter. After where it says IP address........., that is your computer's specific IP address.
11. Now fire up your PSP 2.0 Web Browser. Type in "HTTP:// 'YOUR IP ADDRESS HERE' " and Hey! Presto you should see your files in your psp browser! Now Get Downloading!
P.S. Another thing that sped up transfers/sites loading with the psp is to set the cache size from 512kb to 2048kb, this makes the cache 4x bigger, thus allowing more media-enhanced sites to be viewed
*NEW* - Access Your Files Over The Internet Guide! Thanks To Philistine For Submitting The Information! :Jump:
You can access the server you set up over the internet. What you need is the IP address your ISP assigned you and the port the server is running on. As an example I got my IP address from www.ipchicken.com (since I'm behind a router) and entered it as the address in the browser i.e. http://220.127.116.11:2364 (this is not my real IP). The last four digits behind the colon is the port the server is running on.
If you are using a router and/or a firewall you will need to forward the port the server is using. You can find out how to forward ports on routers here: http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm and firewalls here: http://firewalling.com/routers.htm
While I was succesful at accessing the server with my PSP, there is a problem here. I have a dynamic IP address assigned by my ISP (most people do). This means that my IP address changes, so while the IP I'm using to access the router works now it may not work later.
Now there is a solution. You can use a dynamic IP redirecting service. This is a service that will give you a web address that redirects to your PC. There are many of these services avaliable. I've not used any but just hit up Google to find them.
Another solution is if you have a web site you can make your own redirect. I found a guide that can give you a redirect if you are not behind a router (your PC is directly connected to the Internet). If your are behind a router its a bit tricker. I've not yet got it working but it seems possible to do this with a PERL script running on your PC and web site. So far I've found a script for getting your external IP address: http://www.geekuprising.com/get_you...makePrintable=1
All I need is a script for making a redirect page and uploading it to a website. I'm sure one is out there I just haven't found it yet.
Special Thanks To Hexagram And Philistine for helping me with the guide. hehe :)
