Question

With my IomegaEZ-8, I followed the helpfiles to:

 

Network>Protocols>FTP>On

 

...and enabled FTP, but there are no further instructions on configuring the drive to receive FTP uploads.

 

Are there some available guidelines?

 

My immediate intention is to see if I can set up the FTP upload functions to work with some IP surveillance cameras within my network.

I believe it is possible to do this, but I'm not sure if the FTP address for this drive needs to be set up in a particular way in the FTP configuration menu of  these network cams, say "192.168.1.69:21" or something of that sort.  I assume a drive directory can be configured from the client FTP upload program, or manually on the drive itself.

Answer

Check that  you are trying to  connect using ftp://<IP address of nas> 

 

Depending on your client or browser, you could use either of the following as well:

 

ftp://username@ftpserver

 

or

 

ftp://user:password@ftpserver

 

Otherwise, just insert a bare IP address will do.
