How to enable /jffs and /cifs in Shibby

    I flashed shibby FW "tomato-NDUSB-1.28.5x-108-Nocat-VPN.trx" on my WRT54GS V3, 64M RAM router. After flashing, I suddenly found that both /jffs & /cifs are disappeared.

    I telnet my router and find the path of /jffs. Tried to format it. But it reported that /jffs is read-only. Also I don't know how to link /cifs to a shared folder by command.

    So is there any one can help me?

    this image does not include cifs and jffs. With those features image will be too big for routers with 8MB flash

    It's not big. For toastman, it's 4.313M and /jffs is allowed. Shibby is 4.516M. Only 200K more. Why disable /jffs? More than 3M is wasted!!!

    It would be more flexible if let the user make the decision on whether use /jffs or not. Not disable it forcibly.
    As for /cifs, it's map of a network drive. It will not affect router at all even FW occupies all the space of 8M flash. Why disable it?

    ok, you are talking about K24, well you have right. K26 will be too big. BUT why you installed USB version for router WITHOUT usb port? Just install ND-Max build. Max is the maximum image with all features for routers without USB port (and without usb features like samba, ftp, dlna etc).

    I need ftp, because I need to transfer some python program to router to be executed. Though I can use cifs, but my IP is changed when I'm in office and login router by VPN.

    The functions I need:
    ftp server

    Can my requirement be met by install ND-Max build? Thanks!
