Copying Files to External Drive via FTP/SSH

Ok, I’m a new PAYING customer of this wonder product that claims:

The software installs automatically, and no modification or coding is required.

  • Easily enable external USB hard drive storage

So…the questions is…what [EXACT] additional steps do I have to take to actually be able to copy files to the external USB hard drive I have connected to my apple TV?

I have already done the additional steps [not automatic] to enable the external HD and can see it through the interface…I attempted to do the additional coding to get AFP access to work, but following the instructions in the FAQ did not work…and judging from the comments in that post, I’m not the only one having this problem.

p.s. I’m curious now how many people thought, like me, this really was automatic and asked for a refund.

Once you connect to the Apple TV via Cyberduck, Fugu etc, you can copy file to the external drive. There will be a link to the external drive in the frontrow/Movies folder.

You can also access the drive through Fugu at: /Volumes/YOUR DRIVE NAME

Thank you for the prompt response. I was able to see the drive using that sym link. what about the AFP access?
