    I've 2 questions :

    1] Can i use an homepage on the NSLU2 or can i only use it
    as an ftp/webserver?

    2] i want to use a password if i want to login on the nslu2 from the internet. Right now if i tried to login i have a direct connection with the nslu2..so i don't see a login screen.

    If i'm trying to login via a local network then i see the login screen that asks for a password.

    How is that possible that localy i need a password and not from the internet?.
    what king of adjustment do i've to make?.

    If you could use it as a webserver out of the box, then you would be able to put your homepage on there. What you are asking does not make much sense and you need to be more specific about what you want to know.
    If you run a Windows machine as your webserver and if you have the NSLU2 connected by using a share, then you can put some web space on the NSLU2, hence place your homepage on that machine as well.
    Can you use the NSLU2 as a webserver out of the box without tweaking? - No!
    Web is html, file up-/download accross the Internet is ftp. Those are two different things.

    What firmware version are you using?
    When I open the NSLU2 in a web browser I certainly have to enter my admin password or other user's password that I want to use.
    That same rule applies when I want to use it as a network share. While connecting I will have to enter user name and password.

    Not sure if I understand your question or if you have described it well enough.

    just change the admin password on the NSLU2 just in case!!!!!

    On your main ROUTER don't forward the ports the NSLU2 uses for internet access!!!!
