Cyberduck ftp into Humax iHDR5050

I have a Humax iHDR5050 digital reciever at home with an internal harddisk. To get something of the harddisk a FTP connection can be made (USB is limited to files less than 4Gb) but it needs some configuration. Below is my setup.

  • Crosswire UTP cable from Humax to my MacBook
  • Start FTP server on Humax
  • Manual configure IPADDRESS on Humax
  • Manual configure IPADDRESS on MacBook ethernet
  • (Only first time)In terminal run:
    defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck ftp.command.stat false
    (here is why)
  • Create FTP connection as image below shows. Make sure Active (PORT) is selected and the browser connection is used on downloading.

A connection with good old commandline ftp works too, but sometimes a GUI is nice. When you use the commandline make sure to use the command “binary” to set the transfer from ASCII to BINARY.
