    Hey Guys, I'm new here and I need your help !

    Yesterday I bought a new Harddisk
    The Maxtor Shared Storage II

    It's connected to my Linksys Router(<= Tomato 1.07) through RJ-45

    I can acces the folders on the MSS II like any local shared folder in windows

    I managed to enable the CIFS client.
    I can access the content of the MSS II (cd /cifs1; ls) by connecting with PuTTY using SSH

    What I don't know, is...
    how to download or upload something to this disk through the internet?

    Is there a way for me to do this with the SSH protocol ? Or with SCP or SFTP or simply FTP Access?


    by the way, the commands cd, ls, cat and put are almost everything i know about linux ^^ so please be gentle :D

    you can use Tomato with OpenVPN or SSH Tunneling I think I saw a tutorial on ssh in the forum somewhere and openvpn mod has a sticky thread.

    What does openVPN do ?

    creates an OpenVPN server on Tomato which you can connect to from another router through site to site configuration or a PC using OpenVPN.
    but SSH tunneling is supposedly easier to achieve, you can try it simple a matter of configuring putty to do it...
    if i remember correctly SSH can't be throttled gracefully so you need to add a rule for it in QOS in case you get connection drops.

    Damn it
    It doesn't work completly

    In my university we have to use a vpn connection to have access to the internet

    There are two ways

    VPN with WinXP (pptp ?!)
    VPN with Cisco Client

    Using the WinXP-VPN the OpenVPN Monitors don't turn green (see below)
    Port works normally (f.e. RealVNC works on that port)

    Using the Cisco Client they do turn green... But i have no access to my hardisk nor the routers web interface or anything else in my home network


    Using WinXP-VPN Connection Open VPN stops after those lines:
    Sun Sep 09 20:48:23 2007 Expected Remote Options hash (VER=V4): '3c1acc9c'
    Sun Sep 09 20:48:23 2007 Socket Buffers: R=[8192->8192] S=[8192->8192]
    Sun Sep 09 20:48:23 2007 UDPv4 link local: [undef]
    Sun Sep 09 20:48:23 2007 UDPv4 link remote: 85.178.xxx.xxx:5322


    Do you know why this is happening ?


    Or is there maybe a way to set up a ftp that redirects to my hard disk?

    I have to do a little guess here...
    WinXP VPN client is PPTP based and not compatible with OpenVPN.
    Cisco's VPN has some modes that are compatible with OpenVPN but this is not a 100% compatibility.
    if you want the thing to work as it should you need to use OpenVPN client, splat has a complete howto on this in the OpenVPN thread.
