I have tried changing the IP address many times with the #> ifconfig eth0 inet 192.168.1.xxx netmask 255.255.255.0
#> route add default gw 192.168.1.1

I did manage to get the ip to change once but still could not FTP in, but I've tried it dozens of times and can't get it to work at all now. Im logged in as superuser and have the Mech mod and xebian on it, I'd like to switch to XBMC but can't FTP it on.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Also I did try runing the above commands followed by -c as well.

    You need an ftp server running to use it! By default, one is not installed with xebian. Do this:

    $ su
    # apt-get install proftpd

    Then follow the prompts. It will install the ftp server automatically. Then log in with your linux username and password (instead of xbox/xbox, though you can set up a user to do that) and you should have access to all the files on the xbox.
