    Why would it have an ftp server set up on it? If anything you would FTP from the wii.

    I'm sure I don't know. But it seems strange that they would put something other than FTP on port 21.

    Anyway... stuckshut, you say any input from you closes the connection. Does it close after a single character or does it wait until you send a carriage return?

    Nothing else would be using port 21.

    And finding the ftp port open on a machine doesn't mean it is running an ftp server.

    And it remote closes you. Meaning there is no ftp server, thus nothing to connect to.

    Yes, we know that the wii when connected to the router will show up in the dhcp table/connected devices list. This really has nothing to do with what we are talking about though.

    Someone asked if you could access the wii over the network from a PC.

    Certainly port 21 being open doesn't indicate that the host /must/ be running an ftp server.

    If it goes through the handshake and opens a TCP connection, one would imagine that /something/ is listening. Especially if the connection remains open until receiving input.

    Who's to say it's not a listener for some proprietary protocol?

    I don't presently have a way to investigate this more deeply, so I'm just going from what stuckshut had to say.

    thing about the port 21 being open is probably something internal is using it locally or something to block a possible exploit of it being used as a FTP like what happened on the original Xbox.....

    NOTE: LINUX MAY BE BEST BET TO DO ANYTHING NETWORK WISE WITH WII i say this cuz well its more advanced and more possibilities with the tools and cmds Linux has
