Hi, I'm using jac's firmware (but the problem was the same with the original one) and I'm having issues creating directories beginning with a dot via FTP. I could use samba or SCP to send my backups, but using scp I manage to transfer at most at 450ko/s and with samba it never transfer quicker than ~1Mo/s. This is really crappy speed for a 100Mbps net (both NAS and servers are on the same Gbit router) ^^ Here follows the session log : CrÃ©ation du rÃ©pertoire `.aptitude' ---> MKD /DISK 1/backup/2008-07-15/root/.aptitude <--- 550 Error: Permission denied. ---> CWD /DISK 1/backup/2008-07-15/root/.aptitude <--- 451 Error: No such file or directory. ---> QUIT <--- 221 See you later... ---- Fermeture du socket de contrÃ´le Is there a way to allow creation of dot dirs on bftpd ? How ? :frown: Thanks a lot for your help.
