I will start ftpd-topfield automatic, and I type this in mij router wl500g deluxe with telnet.

mkdir /usr/local/root/bin
mkdir /usr/local/sbin/
cp /tmp/harddisk/ftpd-topfield /usr/local/root/bin
chmod a+x /usr/local/root/bin/ftpd-topfield
echo “/usr/local/root/bin/ftpd-topfield -D -P 2021 -t 60 -p /tmp/ftpd-topfield.pid --turbo -–noeplf” >> /usr/local/sbin/post-boot
flashfs save
flashfs commit

and after i have type: flashfs commit, telnet say file is to big <102949, max 65536>

The ftpd-topfield file is 189.540 kb

You can leave the binary on harddisk and run from there, but instead of putting startup command in post-boot put it in post-mount.

mkdir -p /usr/local/sbin/
echo “/tmp/harddisk/ftpd-topfield -D -P 2021 -t 60 -p /tmp/ftpd-topfield.pid --turbo -–noeplf” >> /usr/local/sbin/post-mount
flashfs save
flashfs commit

I've just recently bought a WL500g to go with my topfield 5800.

I just have a few questions about setting up the ftpd-topfield app.

Question 1

I have run through all the processes to get the app running, this all works fine.

But when I ftp to it I get a blank file list unless I ftp using Firefox.

I have tested 2 ftp clients (flashfxp & smartftp) both do the same thing.

From reading this post I thought it was to do with the "list -al" command, but setting that to only be "list" made no difference.

I also know the data is there as it is displayed by running the view raw directory command which works in both apps.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Question 2

What do the "flashfs save" and "flushfs commit" commands actually do?

I thought they would save the directories and files I had created (ie the /usr/local/sbin folder and the post-mount file), but when I reboot the WL500g I loose all those files and folders.

Is this normal behavior?

I looks like my ftpd-topfield is running-

root]$ ps
194 root 160 S /opt/sbin/ftpd-topfield -D -P 21

here is the lines in post-firewall:

iptables -D INPUT -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j DROP

But when I try to access it from WAN I have such error:


I just would like to make ftpd-topfield work...

What is the root of this problem?
