I was hoping you could help me connect my xbox to my Apple computer. I have tried every FTP program I could get my hands on, including the built in FTP in the operating system. My Xbox has an Xecuter MOD running Evolution X. I cannot get the Xbox to network with my iMac no matter what I do. Any suggestions?

Glossary of barbarians terms:

DHCPShort for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. With dynamic addressing, a device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. In some systems, the device's IP address can even change while it is still connected. DHCP also supports a mix of static and dynamic IP addresses. Dynamic addressing simplifies network administration because the software keeps track of IP addresses rather than requiring an administrator to manage the task. This means that a new computer can be added to a network without the hassle of changing configuration.
IPadressInternet Protocol, the most basic protocol to communicate on the Internet. An IP number is a numerical address consisting of four numbers seperated by periods. Each IP address uniquely identifies a certain computer on the Internet. The domain name is used to make using them easier.
FTPFile Transfer Protocol. A standard method for sending files from one computer to another on TCP/IP networks such as the Internet. FTP is also the name of the command used to initiate transfer of files. Anonymous FTP is a common practice which permits users to access some parts of an FTP site without needing an account and password for the site. The login must be XBOX, the password is defined in evox.ini or XBMC.xml
TelnetTelnet is a user command using TCP/IP protocols to access a computer remotely. To have access to that computer, you must have permission, meaning you must authenticate to the system with a valid username and password. When you are connected to the network using telnet, you can enter commands and they will be executed as if the were being entered directly onto the server console.
PingPing is a basic Internet program that lets you verify that a particular Internet address exists and can accept requests. The verb ping means the act of using the ping utility or command. Ping is used diagnostically to ensure that a host computer you are trying to reach is actually operating.
FirewallA system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the Intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those (Ex: htttp, ftp, tcp and udp port) that do not meet the specified security criteria.
