If using characters off the lower seven bit ASCII character set you need to ensure the terminal emulator is configured to UTF-8.

As I mentioned, I used the same admin password as I have setup with the NAS, I also tried the default "admin" password, that doesn't work either
No idea why you want a shared folder permitting guest FTP access ... and even FTP requires a password - always, kind of: Permitting you enable anonymous access on the FTP server, you still have to provide "something" - but again, for what you want to achive, don't enable anonymous access.fmzip wrote:Moving on to further issues, I tried creating a new "shared folder" called Share with guest right access to read only, "no password required". (I also tried creating a different folder with same credentials) If I try to access the newly created shared folder directly via FTP, it requires a log in. If I log in via my admin credentials, I have full access to it. Same if I access that directory via file manager with the QNAP interface, full access.
Now you are becoming completely confusing.... Can't be difficult to check the access rights in place for the currently existing shared folders, and implement the same. Get a screenshot, and post details...fmzip wrote:However, if I access the newly created Share directory in Windows with any user with admin rights other than admin, I can access the top directory, but I get accessed denied if I try to create a sub folder etc. I've tried to refresh the sub folder rules, that doesn't provide any different result. All my other directories I created moons ago I can still access freely via windows. This goes the same for the File Manager QNAP interface, even though I am an admin, I don't seem to have full admin rights when I create something new
Forget Public share (completely unrelated), forget FTP (unless you really want to access your NAS from the wild Internet or form work to upload new data to be included in blog or other posts) as you have shared folder access from Windows Explorer, OS X Finder, ...
But then again, you already have the NAS Web Server shared folder - this is where you create new folder(s) and put the files to - as explained in brief before.
