FTP password problem on NSLU2 using R63

    I've worked on this FTP password problem for quite a while without finding the solution and I wanted to check to see if other have or had a similar problem.

    When the NSLU2 with R63 is used with only a flash drive (FAT32 formatted) on USB port 2, FTP access to it works great using either guest/password or admin/admin which are the only two possibilities. If a ext3 formatted HD on USB port 1 is active, the only way I've found to get FTP access to the flash drive is by using a valid user account/password for the ext3 drive.

    If the guest/password is used, the FTP program accepts the "guest" ID, but then hangs until the program times out. Apparently the NSLU2 FTP server stalls when "guest" is sent to it. I think this is a bug! "Guest" should be a valid user ID and this should work. Note: If any invalid ID/password is sent, the NSLU2 promptly rejects it.

    I haven't been able to get the anonymous FTP setting to work at all. Another bug!

    This lack of guest/password access with the ext3 drive running posses a problem. I have a net cam that automatically and continuously FTP's snapshots to the thumb drive. Normally the ext3 drive is powered off, but I can remotely power it up for back up jobs. Once the ext3 drive is on, the net cam can't FTP snapshots to the thumb drive unless admin/admin (one of the two possibilities for FTPing without an ext3 drive) is the ID/password for the HD. The net cam can't switch between alternate ID/passwords to FTP its data to the NSLU2.
