I'm using unslung 6.8 with a USB key (2GB) on port 2 and a USB hub
(powered) on port 1.
I've unslung to the USB key (EXT3) and on the hub on port 1 I have 4
NTFS disks attached, 2x40GB 2.5" and 2x300GB 3.5".
The 2x2.5" disks are connected permanently and are powered from the USB
hub. The 2x3.5" disks are connected but only powered on when needs,
they don't spin down.
I've edited the /share/flash/conf/share/share.info & smb.info files to
suit my setup and placed a script in /unslung to overwrite these
default files on every boot up.
I only use the web page to create users/groups and create all the
shares in the 2 files above. Shares created in the smb.info file show
up on the local network and shares created in the share.info file show
in the FTP server. This way I can keep shares available to me on the
LAN seperate from what's seen/available to users connected to the FTP
server. I'm using the built in FTP server and have made no changes to
the bftpd.conf file.
I'm not a Linux person and found it difficult to setup any of teh
available ftp servers with ther permissions and access I wanted to give
users. The above method allows me to do all the user admin via web
I'm also able to hide the HDD_1_(1/2/3/4)_1 shares fromn the network.
If anyone in interested I'll post a copy of my config files.
