yes !!!!

I'm waiting for FTP passive port range since October 2005, and can wait 4-5 months more ! 8)

The main is that I can use the FTP (a day) !

So thanks Synology ! Thanks guys !!!!! =You're the bests !

PS : sorry for my english :?

French version :

cool ça déchire sa race ! :D
J'attends ça depuis octobre 2005 (la plage de port à utiliser pour le FTP passif, et je suis pas le seul) je peux attendre quelques mois de plus !

Mieux vaux avoir ce firmware tardivement plutôt que pas du tout, pas mal de boîtes n'aurait jamais sorti de firmware pour du matos "ancien" comme la série 101.

Alors merci Synology, merci les gars !!! Vous êtes les meilleurs !!!!

PS : j'suis une burne en anglais ! Mais je m'en fiche car j'aurais mon FTP passif sur mon NAS :P

Hi,

Any hints about the additional features and improvements the new DS-101 firmware upgrade will bring?

Looking forward to the release...

With the last major update of the firmware the features of the newer diskstations were more or less copied over so I guess you can just take a look at them to get an idea.
Taking the last update into consideration I am also looking forward to seeing what Synology will bring with the next firmware.

Can you mention one feature you are really missing from the latest upgrades? I have been really happy with the first version of the firmware - the bittorrent function was an extra bonus I had personally never expected to see in such an old product. And if other features are badly needed there is always the option of using ipkg.

port range for passive FTP
I requested this function to Synology in October 2005 (yes 2005 !)
Most people can't connect to my FTP server while this function is not implemented.

Sorry for my English... ouch ! :oops:

What exactly is the problem with passive FTP? I have seen the problem mentioned several times, but my DS-101 functions properly using the current implementation of FTP.
Wouldn't a problem like be solvable using ipkg?

if client and server are using both a router, you need to use the passive mode of FTP.
Some specifics routers can open/close FTP's ports in live.
For others, the router must be configured, and need to indicate the ports to open (for FTP transfers), but these ports are choosen randomly by the FTP server, therefor you can't configure them on the router (if you don't know port numbers)
If we can configure port range, we can configure the router.

There are ipkg FTP servers, but it's not easy to configure.
And I think this function is primary in a FTP server !

As I said in your PM, the firmware update for the DS101/DS101g+ should bring up the system with similar functions/features as the 426 version for x06 Series.
