    Hi all,
    Recently I picked up a NSLU2 NAS. My intention was to able to use so I could access files without any one computer being on all the time. It works fine for that, although I was a little disapointed that the only way of browsing the files outside of the network was FTP (correct me if I'm wrong...that's the only way I've found).

    After I got it set up and running, enabled FTP, and set up port forwarding on my router, I wanted to use the drive to store backups. Well, I'm using Vista 64 ultimate, and I decided that the built in backup would work just fine for me. When I tried connecting to the drive, after mapping the drive under Windows, Windows Backup won't connect to the drive. It puts a folder in the drive (long hexidecimal name), but it fails. I soon discovered on the web that this is a known problem, but the only solution seems to be a beta firmware that I can't seem to download anywhere.

    Has anybody else come up with a better solution? I wouldn't object to putting a stable, third party firmware on the device, I just don't know what to look for. I'd really appreciate any help anyone can give me.
