      Not sure why, but the official firmwares from Buffalo turn off FTP
      when the device is being used in an AD environment.

      If you are feeling adventurous, you could put debian(freelink) on the
      box and setup Samba AD and FTP on your own, through an ssh connection
      into the box.
