Issues uploading motion detection files with ftp
  • Hi,

    I'm running security spy for a couple of months now and finaly today I spent some time on motion detection.

    Everything works fine except one small thing.

    I want to upload motion detected movies and jpegs to a NAS, somewhere else.

    The NAS, synology DS111, latest DSM version accepts ftp, accepts passive ftp and I've a working account on it.
    Securityspy, latest 3.04 version try's to upload, but stores only one file with the right file size. After that it somethimes creates files with a size of 0 bytes, but after a while even that becomes a problem.

    The NAS and the Mac mini are on the same subnet
    - NAS accepts passive ftp

    04-08-13 1610-05: Error communicating with the FTP server "NAS-Backup" 3.0.4,90038,425 425 Can't open passive connection: No such file or directory.

    Does someone have a clue?

  • After spending a couple of hours, trying to debug why this wasn't working, I changed the account name to a different account, i used in the past.

    It works like a charm.

    But why it failed in the first case, I don't know.

Howdy, Stranger!
