I just received my Slate AX today, upgraded it to the latest firmware, and have been playing around.
In the app, under Plugins > Network Storage > Share, there’s a Services option for FTP. This is very useful to me, but there is no option to set up an FTP user or otherwise protect it. The FTP is open access.
Further, there’s no mention of FTP anywhere on the 192.168.8.1 web interface.
Why are there differences in features between the app and web interface, and no password options for FTP?
EDIT: And for that matter, no function to format the SD card? Seriously?
