File transfer from Mac to 5810

Post by arrow57 »

Hi all, long time no see, my attempt to get a 7260 working in the UK met with limited success so I have moved back to the 5810. However I am having problems transferring files (TAPS) from my Mac to the 5810. Is there a simple FTP software that will enable me to do this with a USB connection or over WiFi. Regards Arrow57

Th 5810 doesn't support anything IP; it only supports a USB connection

You can use FTP if you put a server near the toppy e.g. a NSLU slug (ancient, someone on the forum said in the last month that they had one they didn't use anymore)
. I believe EMJB uses a Raspberry Pi to do the same function.

If you have a modern mac, you can probably run Antares in a windows emulation mode (not sure whether or not you would also have to load the drivers using Z4t).

I also use a Pi to connect to my Toppy (5800) via usb, means I can connect to the Toppy via my home LAN using Antares/Top Manager/FTP. It also means I can also access the Toppy from any PC with internet access using remote desktop access.
