I’m putting a checkmark in the box called “ftp”. Is there anything else I need to do like maybe to my router or something in order to get an ftp site working?
Does the mybook live automatically give my ftp site a hostname? If so what name hostname does it give it? Is the user name and password same as for my admin?
Would the folders act the same way as pretty much any folder? I am going to put the ftp folders in the “my pictures” folder on my book live. I’m doing this in the hopes that I can use wd photos to view the pictures from my ipad remotely and see thumbnail previews. Am I really going to be able to see these photos in the ftp folders the way I want to?
The reason I’m doing this roundabout way of remotely transfering files is cause I can set up an automatic backups using a program called sync back directly into the “my pictures” folder via ftp. I know smartware won’t let me automatically backup to that particular folder I have to put everything into in order to view thumbnail previews with my photos.
