    I'm considering to buy WRTSL54GS. The specs look good to me. It has a built-in ftp server. However, I intended to use it as a simple photo album server via dynamic dns and simple web page. Is there a ready to go solution?

    couldnt imagine it being much of a storage for pictures, there isnt all that much memory, is having a computer on the network on hosting this website an option fot you

    I know the web hosting option. I'm using imageevent.
    But I still think it is feasible to customize this little box as a album server. There are examples using nslu2. So, the memory is not a critical issue here.

    there are a few people that are using the WRTSL54GS as web servers at the moment using OpenWRT. memory is not the issue tbh as it has a USB port for A hard disk/USB flash disk.

    FTP server is already built into the new firmware (including Thibors 15 due out soon) though i dont know it the media service is available to the WAN as this could be a potential security isssue.

    I have been able to get a Web Server running on my SL with the 15c firmware. The script copies busybox to the SL at boot-time from an attached USB drive, and creates a Symlink for an un-crippled httpd. The html resides on the USB drive with the images. Let me know if you need to see the scripts. Haven't fully debugged it from the outside yet, but you can take a look if it is working.
    BTW, I couldnt figure out how to make the Symlink to the busybox residing on the USB. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. It would be nice not having to copy busybox to the SL.
