    You can upload or download to it from the internet providing that the access permissions for guest users are set up correctly.

    You can set up special user accounts or restrict all guests to access to just the public folders if you wish.

    Are you sure about that, because the Linksys support told me that i only could download from linksys, not upload.??

    True the web interface (HTTP) you can only download and you can't select more then one file at a time.

    If you access the NSLU2 true FTP you can, if you configured correctly, up and download files. True FTP you can even select folder or numerous of files.

    Linksys support is frequently clueless. That is why this site is flourishing.

    Okay, but there is no problerm use the ftp to upload/download from internet, with the orginal firmware?

    You must use firmware R63. Older firmware has no FTP capability whatsoever.

    You also should be using ext3 formatted drives if you wish to expose the NSLU2 to the internet because you can set your own passwords for the administration of the NSLU2 and for the various group shares that you might set up.

    If you do not use ext3 drives, then FTP and administration access is limited to unchangeable, easily guessable, default passwords.
