- If you are using an open linux firmware on your Linkstation you can
install an FTP server package on it and forward port 21 to the LAN IP
on your router. You can also use domain registration like dyndns.org
if you have a dynamic IP. Your kids could then FTP into it using
windows explorer, finder or nautilus depending on what os they have.
You don't need an ftp client neccessarily.
If not, you would have to have your kids VPN into your home network.
It is easy to setup in Windows 2k or newer but I never got it to work
over WAN cause my roomate's router is sh*t.
If you are using a windows computer that you leave powered on all the
time, try downloading ORB from www.orb.com. It is a free and cool
program that lets you stream media content as well as view files over
the internet using the https protocol. You can then mount (or map) a
network drive to the SMB share of your Linkstation on the Windows PC so
that your kids can get at the files. ORB is nice because you use a web
browser as your client. For stream videos, make sure its on a fast
computer otherwise it won't work.
If you have linux or mac, you're out of luck cause orb is only for
windows. You'll have to setup your pc to accept VPN connections. It
works best if your router supports IPSec or L2PT passthrough. If you
have a windows PC, search for "Setup VPN Windows" (without quotes) in
Any other questions, pm me phenders21@.... ORB is by far the
easiest and coolest of the options I mentioned.

OS that lives in flash), and it worked and the kernel did more stuff, but it only ran the
USB port at 1.1 speed. I never tried the rest of the OS because I went the Freelink
direction (actually it's predecessor) before that and consider anything else a step
backwards for me.
Beware that traditionally the Kuroboxes have been PPC based (are they still?) while
many of the LS's are based on other processors. Make sure you know what you have
or you'll surely "brick" your LS!
