mythodical The problem with smb seems to be the smbv1 on my old Fritz!Box. But I don't know why ftp is not working properly. It opens the first overview on my NAS, but then it's a kind of loop. I open a directory an get the same overview as before but its shown as if I was in the folder. Sorry, it's hard to describe. Anyways I can't open any file.
It's great, that it works for you.
