Hi Frank,

I'm setting it on my DNS-323 and will be maintaining it. However, my brother wants to be able to access it when he is not at home. I know that I can just use one username:password by just letting him know the one that I had set up. I was just thinking of setting a different username:password just for his access.

What do you mean by "Each user would be allowed to do whatever he/she liked."? Do you mean that I create a user for access to log in to the DNS-323 via telnet?

He means there are no access restrictions built into the software, so there is no point to multiple logins.

Just come up with a un:pw that you two can share, and share. Those of you with the desire to switch to transmission/clutch as a seedbox user management system, I believe, will need to code this yourselves or just use rtorrent with one of the many webUI's that support this.

I myself am content with the single user login, and would rather the developers concentrate on improvements to the UI itself.

I would really love to see the system load average and hard drive space in the bottom "task bar" next to the settings button !!!
