Thread: Control external FTP users ?

  1. #1

    Control external FTP users ?

    I'm running the WL500W as FTP-server (external HDD) which can be reached from the internet.
    Does anybody know how you can see that somebody is connected to the HDD ?

    When you're on oleg/ddwrt/openwrt/tomato firmware you could execute the command:
    netstat -an | grep ESTABLISHED
    it will return the active alive connections of any kind to your router

    if you're on the original firmware, I guess you can't see any more than the logs of someone logging in.

    Thx for your reply.
    I'm running the original firmware and logging does not even show that somebody logged in
    It seems Oleg did a better job.

    no logging at all?
    you could also try to do that command via the web interface of the original firmware: http://ip-of-your-router/Main_AdmStatus_Content.asp
    it gives you a console where you can execute the code

    when someone is logged in you will see something like:
    Code:
    tcp      469      0 192.168.1.1:21        192.168.1.30:53489     ESTABLISHED
    everywhere it says something like "192.168.1.1:21" it's an ftp connection (port 21)
