ftpd

FTP Server for 3DS/Switch/Linux.

Features

  • Appears to work well with a variety of clients.

  • Supports multiple simultaneous clients. The 3DS itself only appears to support enough sockets to perform 4-5 simultaneous data transfers, so it will help if you limit your FTP client to this many parallel requests.

  • Cutting-edge graphics.

  • Exit on NDS/3DS with START button

  • Exit on Switch with PLUS button

  • Toggle backlight on NDS/3DS with SELECT button

  • Toggle backlight on Switch with MINUS button

  • Emulation of a /dev/zero (/devZero) device for network performance testing

    • Example retrieve curl ftp://192.168.1.115:5000/devZero -o /dev/zero
    • Example send curl -T /dev/zero ftp://192.168.1.115:5000/devZero

Dear ImGui

ftpd uses Dear ImGui as its graphical backend.

Standard Dear ImGui controller inputs are supported.
