vsftpd

dear all,

i was looking for a way to transfer wireless my files. Now i saw that there is a vsftpd and start stop scripts in the firmware update files. Did anybody try to use this already?
What would be the way to start start_vsftpd.sh in /usr/bin ?

Thanks to pkbo for pointing to a solution and providing the link!! Only now i had time to try this out myself. It works even with firmware 1.6 20120105.
Drawbacks i see is that the rights to write + anonymous access might not be suitable for everybody.
I wonder why they did not make this available by default. Maybe it has still some problems, but until known i did not notice anything.

Does it use anonymous login with write privileges? If so, then anyone on the same network can log in and fool with your files.

Yes, it does, anonymous gets full access to the internal flash memory. I guess they need to provide some security options before making it available by default.

True, this is a serious security drawback, but still the server doesn't run as a deamon. You need to start it manually and then close the app before reading anything, so there's a minimal window for anyone to log in.

I would probably risk it, as well, but I was addressing the question of why Onyx didn't provide it by default. They would open themselves up to all kinds of grief over the security issue. The current situation seems to be a pretty good compromise.

Edit: It looks like the secure_email_list_enable option in vsftpd.conf can be used to enable passwords for anonymous logins (in the /etc/vsftpd.email_passwords file).

Dropbox works ok if accessed from the browser of the M92, then you can upload or download files from the dropbox folder on your computer.

(Update) No, sorry uploading actually didn't work for me

Hello to all. I installed ftp.zip and working properly with Windows 7. I did not understand, however, how do you set the sd card to receive files from PC. Would, I think, the file "sd_mount.zip" but I can not download it, and also the installation procedure is not clear to me.

Sorry for automatic translation

It looks like one can't use sd card with ftp server. At least I couldn't figure a way how to do that.

In Russian site in link there is a procedure where it says to download the file "sd_mount.zip" to install it and follow the instructions, but I did not understand the procedure and I can not download the file.
