HackDaBox's Tutorials - Networking

Ok here is a basic Networking guide to get you up and running as easy as possible. Check if you have a NIC (Network Interface Card) build-in to your motherboard and if not buy one they are really cheap. Grab a crossover cable (cat 5) to connect your xbox to your PC. Now go into windows xp and right click on My Network Places, click properties, right click on Local Area Connection, click properties. Click internet protocol (TCP/IP), click properties, click on use the following IP address. Type in Click on Subnet Mask and enter Click ok , Click ok, Click X to close the window. Now the computer is setup.

Now download Flashfxp and install it. Click on "Site Manager" then click to create a new site. Name it Xbox and for the IP enter, verify the port is 21. The username and password are both "xbox", all lower-case and without the quotes.

Now if you have installed a large hard drive then Evox dashboard will be setup so you can just boot Evox and then connect using Flashfxp. Boot Evox dashboard then choose System Management, System settings. Enter these settings.IP Subnet Mask DefaultGateway

You can't leave the Evox Menu while you are networked , if you play a game for example the link is broken.

If you haven't installed a large hard drive then download my Spiderchip Reflash Cd (xbins) as it has Evox Dashboard and networking setup. Just boot the Spiderchip Reflash Cd and then connect using Flashfxp.

C - System folder
Used for storing the MicroSoft Dashboard files. Also other dashboards you install like Evolution x for example.

D - DVD-ROM folder
This shows the files on the DVD or CDRW in the DVD-ROM drive if there is one otherwise it will be blank.

E - Game Save Folder
This is where the save games are stored also any music you have ripped using the MicroSoft dashboard.

F - Games & Apps Folder
This is where you will put all your games and applications. This is only available if you have added a large hard drive.

G - Games & Apps Folder
This is where you will put more of your games and applications if you have this folder. This folder is for large hard drives over 137 gigabytes with a bios that supports F and G. The space before 137gig is on F and the rest is on G. Some bioses just put all the available space on F.

X Y Z - Temp Folders - the xbox throws data in these cache folders and deletes it later on.

Untill you understand more about the folders just don't touch anything except F or G if you have one as these are your folders.

To copy files or folders simply right click on the file or folder and click on transfer. The right side of the screen is the xbox. The left side of the screen is your computer.

To copy the C and E drives from the original xbox to your computer you would right click on C ( on xbox side ) and click on transfer. When it's finished right click on E ( on xbox side ) and click on transfer. Then after you have changed the hard drives and installed it with Slayer's Evox Auto Installer Cd you would right click on C ( on PC side ) and click on transfer. When it's finished right click on E ( on PC side ) and click on transfer.

Lol don’t take it to heart mate!! Just some gentle ribbing!! 
I am curious where you got the info for this networking tut from tho as I personally haven’t worried about crossover cables for years.
Everyone has routers nowadays so a direct connection between pc and Xbox is a very rare thing now I would say.  Also a static ip is something that is not needed, it’s more of a personal preference. The Xbox will connect fine using dchp. 
New Tuts are always appreciated but please make sure the info you are giving is current and correct 😃
