Also found under the Advanced menu are the FTP server controls. As shown in Figure 7, you can enable the FTP server and fully customize it with a non-standard port number, directory path, maximum number of simultaneous users, flow control and timeout settings, etc.

The final option section inside the configuration menu is Maintenance, where you can upgrade the firmware, reset everything to default values, and set user idle timeout values for web configuration screens. A couple of obvious things I didn't see included were an alert mechanism for problem reporting, or any sort of logging service or reporting to help monitor this device. Most of the other devices of this kind offer at least one of these features, if not both.

Once I had explored all the configuration options, I logged out and landed back at the initial login screen where I was then able to explore the Download Schedule menu. This menu allows you to set up either repeating or one-time downloads from FTP and HTTP, i.e. Web, sites (Figure 7).

Figure 7: Download scheduling on the TS-U200

When I pointed the device at a FTP server on my network, it succeeded in downloading everything to the specified share. I also set up a repeating job to download a current weather satellite photo from a web site, which also worked well. The TS-U200 did not appear able to be able to back up from a network share to the TS-U200, but a couple of quick tests soon proved otherwise.
