    USB-FTP Server

    this is an example, to setup a working ftp server

    offcourse connect your USB-HDD or USB-Stick to the WL500g

    apply the changes to your router and finish

    after that you should be able to login with ftp://test:test@my.router:21

    e.g.

    username: test
    password: test
    host: my.router
    port:21

    you can use www.flashfxp.com as FTP program

    USB-FTP

    Hi
    I tried to setup (like is showed on your pic) my 500g to be used as FTP server and it didn't work. I used 2 different USB disks - 256 MB memory stick and Toshiba 40 GB. Both of them are USB 2.0 (maybe that's the problem). If I conect them directly to comp, they work properly. But If I conect them to ASUS and I try to open ftp://192.168.1.1 I can't connect to the FTP - WIN showed message, that "server is prolly not working or I don;t have a permission to access the server).

    Have you an idea, what's wrong?

    thx

    please see first if the devices are supported at all

    if not or not sure, please search the forum to see how to check if a hd is recognized at all (ie. upgrade to 1.7.5.6 CR1 and check the system log should be enough)

    refering to http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?s=&threadid=229 isn't a bad idea i think

    Antiloop, you explain how to configure the ftp server for local network (i've the same config) but is this configuration work also to access ftp from internet ?
    Or it's necessary to forward 20:21 port ?
    Because my ftp work in local but not from outside, my ftp client access to ftp server on port 21 and when it try to do -LIST command it stop.

    Did you try to connect in passive mode as well?
    To understand how the FTP connection works check this site: http://slacksite.com/other/ftp.html

    indeed.. passive needs to be on.. (isn't this always on by default? flashfxp does it..) also you need the latest firmware (1.7.5.6CR2) in the official 1.7.5.6 you can't use ftp from wan due to a bug

    I have found an interesting link how to map a FTP-account as drive in Windows:
    http://www.law.drake.edu/technology/...-WebDrive.html

    the product site is here:
    http://www.southrivertech.com/produc...ive/index.html

    Anyone know similiar products (to map a drive)?

    I assume you allready know you can (by standard) create shortcuts in the explorer of Windows 2000/XP?

    If not:
    - Get the properties of 'My Network Places' (Right mouse button)
    - Choose 'Map Network Drive'
    - Choose 'Create a shortcut to a Web folder or FTP site'
    - Type the appropriate FTP address and the new shortcut is listed directly under 'My Network Places'

    NB. You can even supply an username/password by supplying an URL like this:

    ftp://user1:password@my.router

    So, no need for a commercial package...

    Media player can handle streams from an FTP server, but e.g. Winamp does not.

    How USB-FTP server access via Internet

    Dear All,

    I'm using 1756 (Asus original firmware).

    My case is as same as "Yanism", my ftp server can access by local network very fine but not for outside from Internet.

    Since I know nothing on Linux, if I change to use Oleg firmware, I don't know how to type the command sets for this USB-FTP function (access from internet).

    Does anyone help to post some step-by-steps?

    Thanks!

    1.7.5.6 contains bug preventing ftp server being accessed from WAN. Upgrade to 1.7.5.9 or 1.8.1.7 or try 1.7.5.9-5.

    USB-FTP Server

    Dear Oleg,

    I confirm that the USB-FTU (access from Internet) work very fine with
    1759-5 firmware and no need any external commands.

    Thanks!
