iSCSI in a SOHO NAS?  Unless D-Link plans on trailblazing the entire industry....

The are many reasons why you're never going to see that on this model:

1) The way this particular linux OS handles disk partitioning is too SIMPLE (intentionally!)
2) They'd have to make some serious changes to the OS to handle the commands & I/O. 
3) The NIC on the 323 doesn't have a ToE; performance would be abysmal
4) The CPU is not fast enough
5) There is no onboard battery backup so there goes write-back caching
6) More RAM would be required for sustainable/reliable performance

It's a bleak outlook.  Now, for a few grand.....

+1 for USB drive support

maybe it would be possible for the an app to allow the DNS automaticly download RSS feeds and put them in my shared media folder so I don't have to physically do it myself or even have my computer on to do so? Pretty please.... ;D

•UPnP AV:
- MKV, ISO support


i think this is a must as soon as posible.
because....

i just bought a 500$ multimedia center device that has streaming capabilities via network
so i can stream MKV and ISO movies from my 323.

i was shocked when i read that it does not stream these files types :(

now i`m sorry i have bought the 500$ device, and i`m waiting for the firmware that fixes that

sad days for me :(

+1 AFP/Avahi/Bonjour (and timemachine)

avahi can already be installed through optware, but it would be a lot easier if it were supported by the firmware

some features need a very long time to "create"

but features like: upnp AV streaming ISO or MKV files, or usb port as a extension slot to a usb hard-drive for backup, or fan fix, to stop the fan only if it`s below 25 degrees (celsius)

can be integrated much easier..

.M2TS Support

This should be trivial, as .TS is already supported.
Thanks.

I'd really like to see a newer version of Samba used  (minimum 3.2.x) and change to security=USER (as opposed to security=share).

Hi,
 

I'm not sure, if my input may be considered as bug-fix rather than a new feature.
To my mind the user and group management of the DNS-323 is... let's say suboptimal. It's impossible at the moment to add a user to more than one group (even though it should be possible from a technical point of view). Additionally you cannot add several groups to one share without having the directory shared under different names (same problem with users - using groups would be a workaround, if it worked...).

What definitely seems to be a bug:
The DNS-323 does support UPnP-AV - but doesn't seem to support the full standard (it doesn't seem to be DNLA compliant). Only a few UPnP software clients can access shared media. However, UPnP-AV works well with 3rd party servers (e.g. Mediatomb).


So here's my wishlist:
  • ability to add a specific user to several user groups
  • ability to have several users and group added to a specific directory without having it shared under several names
  • full DLNA compliance out of the box


Cheers,
Mat
