Share on other sites is on a different subnet than

For the PC and Xbox to communicate, the two devices have to be on the same subnet.  The subnet is set by the subnet mask value.  For most home networks the subnet mask is which means that all the bits that are 1 from the left-most of the address have to match in the two devices IP addresses to be able to talk to each other. = 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 in binary

thus, the first 24-bits (AAA.BBB.CCC) of the quad-dotted decimal IP address (AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD) of both devices have to be the same.

For example: The PC is at and the Xbox is at

PC IP address in binary = 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000010
Subnet mask                   = 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 <bitwise AND>
PC is on the subnet       = 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000000 ==>

Same goes for the Xbox at 

Xbox IP address in binary = 11000000.10101000.00000001.01111101
Subnet mask                       = 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 <bitwise AND>
Xbox is on the subnet        = 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000000 ==>

These two machines are on the same logical subnet. If they are also connected to the same physical network, they can talk to each other.  Any other device with a unique IP address from the address pool to can communicate with devices attached to the same physical network. (The last IP address in this subnet is a reserved address. All the remaining bits of the quad-dotted decimal value to the right of the 1's in the subnet mask are set to 1. Thus, which is represented in binary as 11000000.10101000.00000001.11111111. This reserved IP address is known as the network broadcast address.  A data packet sent to this IP address will be received by all devices attached to the same physical and logical sub-network.)

However, is on a different subnet and cannot talk to the devices on the subnet even though the networked devices are attached to the same PHYSICAL network.

  11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 <bitwise AND>
  11000000.10101000.00000111.00000000 ==> is not equal to

The devices are logically prohibited from communicating with each other.  They are on two different subnets.

Update: Bitwise not logical AND operation to determine the sub-network address.

Bitwise AND (&) Truth Table

Input A and B with output found where the input row and column cross

\ A: 0  1 
0  |  0  0
1  |  0  1

A & B = ?

0 & 0 = 0
1 & 0 = 0
0 & 1 = 0
1 & 1 = 1

From the pictures you posted, I see no FTP connection was ever established.  Do you have the IP address of one that worked? 

What is the IP address of your PC?  192.168.0.xxx, where xxx is from the range of values 1-254.

For the PC and Xbox to complete an FTP connection, they both have to be on  the same logical and physical subnet/network.

+ 1for what KaosEngineer said.

Filezilla - there are a couple of settings to change to make it work more reliably with the Xbox.

DO NOT use the quick connect boxes!

In the site manager entry for the Xbox - set the encryption to Only use plain FTP (insecure)!.

FileZilla Site Manager - Original Xbox FTP login

On the transfer settings tab, check the box Limit number of simultaneous connections.  Set the Maximum number of connections to either 1 or 2.  I find that 1 works best.

FileZilla's Site Manager - Per Site entry - Limit number of simultaneous connections

      I recently got two broken Xboxes and was able to build a working console from both.
      The Xbox has a softmod and I'm thinking about flashing the bios. How do I do that best?
      It is a XBOX version 1.4 (Winbond) and I would like to transfer everything via FTP, because I don't have a DVD burner. 
      I have read something about HeXEn and Tsop but I am now rather confused.
      Can I also bottle the Bios over FTP, if so how? 
      Do I have to remove the softmod and is it still possible via FTP after flashing?
      Thanks in advance.
