Title: Upload multiple files at once+Security issue
Post by: network1027 on May 25, 2014, 01:47:57 AM
Hi  :D

Playing around with the NAS functions of the DIR-626L, I'm quite puzzled by two things.

1. Using the web access, I can't seem to be able to upload multiple files at once to the 626L. Likewise, I can't seem to upload a whole folder. Did I miss something ?
( uploading several files at once is often needed : CD album, etc ... ).

2. I managed to dodge the problem by typing \\[IP address] (of the DIR 626L) in the Windows File Browser :
I got full access of the whole drive, without any credential or password asked, with full browse, write and delete permissions.
Although this doesn't seem to 'leak' to the Wan side (tests ongoing) , this is quite a security/reliability issue, no ?

Thanks  :)

It may not be supported that uploading mutiple files at once when using the web access. I'm not too familair with using the web access on these L series routers as I don't use it often, mainly for some remote access there and there or maybe to stream.

Most DIR series routers that have this connection configuration and is supported by D-Link thats on the LAN side only. Its a work around solution for users who don't want to use Shareport which SP also I believe uses this similar connection configuration to connect to the USB drives.

Hi FurryNutz  :D

"1. It may not be supported that uploading mutiple files at once when using the web access. I'm not too familair with using the web access on these L series routers as I don't use it often, mainly for some remote access there and there or maybe to stream."

OK. Apparently no way to upload multiple files at once

"2. Most DIR series routers that have this connection configuration and is supported by D-Link thats on the LAN side only. Its a work around solution for users who don't want to use Shareport which SP also I believe uses this similar connection configuration to connect to the USB drives."
OK. So this leads two conclusions :
a) the storage has to be considered 'insecure' on the Lan side ( open to any Lan hosts )
b) D-Link credentials-menu only real value is to control Shareport's Wan accesses

Is this right ?  :D

I would presume you maybe correct.
