    Okay folks, I did my homework by searching the forums, Googling, etc...and I'm still slightly confused. I hoping a kind lad can point me in the right direction.

    Here's what I'm looking to do:
    I want to access my USB hard drive attached to my WRTSL54GS, from outside my network, as securely as possible. I can easily get in via FTP, but I read that this is "very bad" as far as security goes. (on a side note, when I change the FTP port on the router to anything other than 21, I can no longer connect. Yes, I change the port on my FTP client to match).

    Right now, I just want to remotely connect to the attached hard drive. In the future, I plan on connecting a NAS box via Ethernet.

    I'm using Thibor's v15 firmware. I know Thibor supports SSH but I'm not sure how to configure the ports in relation to FTP's ports.

    Any suggestions on where I should begin reading? Thanks for any tips!
