Is there a way to access the USB via FTP server?

I haven’t seen any FTP/SFTP abilities to access the connected USB storage devices. Is this possible and I am just over looking it or is there a work around or juat flat out no?

Isn’t it just a matter of going into Advanced (LUCI), → System → Software (Update Lists) and installing sftp server?

You don’t have to use Luci, just remember to do update in Applications to refresh the list. You can use openssh-sftp-server, the usb port will be mounted as usual in a folder, standard linux behaviour.
