    Everything works great except when you go to the ftp home page in the nslu2 thru the web. When you click the link the first page always states page not found, than you hit refresh and the log in box shows within seconds like it should. Any ideas on the page not found problem?? NSLU2 has hard numbers thru the router not auto DHCP numbers.
    here's the link try it out....removed
    setup is: router WRT54GX-v2 ver. 2.00.08...... nslu2 ver.r63with 1 200 gig in port 1 format is ext3/only mod is cpu overclocked

    1. I don't think I'd be publishing the IP address of my FTP server on an open forum. Just a word to the wise.

    2. I get a 421 login incorrect error.

    It never asks for my credentials. By default, in a FTP link, it attempts to connect with anonymous credentials.

    So in Firefox I just get "Alert: 421 login incorrect" in a little popup alert window. No place to enter credentials, I'd have to use ftp://user@ip for that. I tried putting the username "user" in front of the IP and it asked for a password immediately, but of course that'sa guess at a username and your password is obviously not "opensezme". ;)

    If you want, you can publish a valid username in the URL, but I'd advise against that. Strongly. Your call. I think you'd be better off just hitting refresh from time to time rather than giving an anonymous idiot like me the beginning of credentials to your FTP server.

    Internet Explorer just gives me a "Cannot Find Server" error like nothing is there at all, whether I put the user@ on the URL or not. Subsequent attempts to connect just sit there thinking forever, like IE tends to do when you "insist" on having it look for a page. It gets petulant and pretends to keep looking.
