Can OpenLink be used? I thought they got a SSH server to run on it.
If so, then you should get secure-ftp service at no extra cost. Then
just find a nice client program for the Mac so you don't have to use
old command line utils like "scp". Will Safari work? On Konqueror
(Safari's Uncle) I can do this: sftp://linkstation and get it to work.
Oh and BTW Telnet is not enabled by default on the LS-1, There are
hacks posted about how to turn it on. OpenLink is a better choice
overall if you are not up to completely transforming you LS into a
full blown Debian Linux machine (i.e. Freelink) like I have done.
Finally it is possible that the problem you are having is not really
long file names, but illegal characters in the file name. You might
test for this.
