The FTP server capability of the NSLU2 was added unceremoniously in an upgraded release version of the firmware between R29 and R63. In my opinion, this should have warranted a new number in the firmware version instead of a Release version. I suspect that the FTP capability has always been there in the firmware right from the start but was disabled. This explains why the appearance of FTP only gets a release number because the codes for the FTP server has always been there. It only took a simple switch to turn it on. With that being said, I would like to start a new thread that focuses only on the FTP server of the NSLU2 because I think it is an important feature of the device. I request that the mods here to make this a sticky post. The first question I have is how secured is this FTP server? I know that I can create users and passwords and have each user folder private, but how easy it is to hack through this barrier? Incidentally this feature is only available at this writing if the drive connected to USB1 is EXT3. If you want to use the unslug version of the firmware, it offers a few FTP packages that you can use. They say that these FTP programs are more secured but since I am not a Linux person, I have not used them to vouch for their robustness in security. Any help from any members here who are familiar with Linux is appreciated.
