Nas drives
hi all,

im considering buying this http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/d-link-sharece...sure-a59lu
i'm fed up of having to plug my 2 TB HDD and have the cable go across the room floor to my laptop. i use it to save my downloads, stream films to my xbox and T.V.

my questions are:

1a) Will i be able to set Vuze or Utorrent to download direct to it?
1b) Will speed be affected?

2) Can i access this data from my mobile, another computer on the go? the idea is to let family access it

thanks for any replies

RE: Nas drives
you probably best looking at d-link's website for that info

I've stopped buying d-link products ages ago, because of their poor support and product software/firmware updates to UK customers

RE: Nas drives
if you have an old pc - use that

I have a freenas server - which runs of a pc configuration - there are various plugins available for downloading so no need to have another box doing it - but if you have another pc and you want to have files saved directly to it then this can easily be done

I have all my media on the freenas box and the os runs from a usb stick, meaning all sata ports used for drives Smile

I also run Plex Media Server (have a look at the plex thread in this forum) on it and you can also have minidlna if needed

RE: Nas drives
i wanted something cheap so i went for the D-link dns320 £32. i have all of my devices working from it but i cannot for the life of me get FTP to work.

I have set up a ddns, i have entered this in my router and my nas and they both say it is connected. i have port forwarded port 21 to my nas ip.

i type in my browser http://ftp.dlinkddns.com and it asks for a username and password, i type in my ddns user name and password and nothing, it asks me again.

Am i doing something wrong?
