    I just signed up for myDropBox and I currently use a free account. Anyway to mount this drive on a tomato router? Incorporate it into linux? Etc? Thoughts?

    So far all of the solutions there require Ruby or Python and thus are not supportable on Tomato.

    What would the advantage be of using Dropbox for this? I'm a big fan, don't get me wrong, but I'm not sure I see the value-add for a router.

    Free network storage for router logs?

    I dont have to have dropbox installed on each of my computers, but instead it is on the router so when I copy files to the "network drive" they are uploaded to dropbox automatically?

    The "free network storage" part is dubious unless you have no PCs running 24/7 (which is possible, sure - but I've never wanted/needed to keep router logs for that long, and when I do, I just pipe 'em over to my Linux VM). But the point is taken.

    As for a single-point-of-entry solution, Tomato would never do that - mounting a Dropbox store *on* a router is one thing, exporting it as a CIFS/NFS share to _others_ is something else entirely.
