FW 1.06 Wish List
« on: May 23, 2008, 05:33:42 PM »

Is it too soon to start a wish list for firmware revision 1.06?

Here are my wishes

1)  Better email reporting of failed disks - how about once every 24 hours or whatever the space status has been set for.
2)  A disk almost full email alert with an adjustable threshold - so we know about the problem before it becomes a problem - and again multiple emails at whatever the space status has been set for.
3)  Web file server
4)  A way to resume interrupted downloads where they failed rather than start over completely.

RAID1 is for disk redundancy - NOT data backup - don't confuse the two.

Might as well add my 2 cents:

... What Fordem said ...
5) EXT3 journaling file system.
6) Fix bug in UPnP media catalog with files > 4GB
7) Uptime and performance statistics on status page

Pipe dream:
8) sftp

Cheers!

* FTP SERVER:
- SSL support
- FTP logs
- FTP current status info (uptime, connected users etc., current transfers from FTP)
- Unicode

* Schedule downloads:
- remove URL length limit (very often I can't download things because URL is longer than 120 chars, for example I couldn't download SP3 from Microsoft)
- queueing
- pausing & resuming
- BT client page doesn't need to be refreshed. I'd like D-Link to use the same technique for Schedule downloads page
- ability to rename files. In current firmware you can only choose where to download file but you can't change its name while adding task (you always have to download file with its original name)

* BITTORRENT:
- queueing
- allocate and zero new files on creation
- scheduling torrent downloads
- ability to choose which files to download in a batch torrent
- remove security flaws: everybody has full access the BT share, it's possible to access BT download without authentication (http://"dns323_ip"/web/bt/fe01.html)

-> Adding/monitoring torrents and download tasks from external application (for example from Easy Search Utility).

* NETWORK ACCESS SETTINGS

- You can add your own share folder but you can't change its name (it is always named the same as the folder on NAS it is referring to)
- Ability to change default share name Volume_1 to one of your choosing
- You can't share folders with some national characters (share folder is visible in Network Neighbourhood but when you try to open it gives you an error). Japanese letters are fine. But Polish or Russian doesn't work :( -> http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=1776.0)

 
* UPnP MEDIA SERVER
- updating content instantly by SMB and FTP transfer !!!
- support for: OGG, FLAC, MKV, APE, IFO, ISO, AAC, DIVX
- ability to monitor more than one folder (in current firmware you can only add one folder+its subdirectories or monitor the whole volume)
- shoutcast internet radio stations

* Syslog support

* Journaling file system (EXT3)

* S.M.A.R.T monitoring page

* Defragmentation tool

* Utility to scan HDD for bad sectors

* SSH (secure shell)

* HTTPS (SSL) for system administration pages

* Other tweaks:

- I don't like that script in firmware configuration pages for selecting directories. If you have many subdirectories it takes to long to list them + it opens new window. Could D-link write something better (using more modern web technologies)? For example have you seen similar script in Twonky server configuration (It's faster and uses the same window).


3)  Web file server

Well... Web file server function exists. But it seems it's not finished yet (use at your own risk) + it's buggy + user interface is bad (read the discussion: http://forum.dsmg600.info/p15473-2008-05-23-13%3A30%3A20.html#p15473 ). Let's hope this functionality will be officially added in 1.06 firmware (of course after D-link engineers will rethink that "5 different tabs" idea).

5) EXT3 journaling file system.


ext3 support was removed in the 1.03 firmware, I wonder why?  Perhaps the device hardware cannot support that kind of filesystem?

EXT3 definately had  problems with the kernel used in the firmware up to 1.02.  The kernel was upgraded in firmware 1.03 and some outside tests have shown that EXT3 would have worked fine from 1.03 on if they would have left support in.

Because of the problems seen with the BT app, i found this suggestion very helpfull :
- Be able to format only 1 drive on the NAS, when using the 2 drive config only.

and the most important
- Be able to give a "REAL" Admin access to a specific folder, so the BT issue will be fixed (we will be able to delete the finish file).

While talking about filesystems:

  • Enable extended attributes for ext2/ext3

I'd like to see support of the xbox 360 media center.  I think I read here that it's being worked on, and it would be nice to see this in 1.06.

How frequently is new firmware released?

I assume some of these will be impossible, but what the heck...

1. Auto Power On
2. Scheduled Power Up/down Time
3. WOL
4. USB storage support
5. eDonkey
6. Scandisk
