interesting, i think i used bulletproof at one point, but it bugged out on me so i switched to winftp. That didn't run on server 2008, and when they switched to wing ftp, well that just didn't do anything I wanted.
I wouldn't mind dealing with the domain nonsense if i could figure out how to set it up and why it was necessary.
When you asked if i physically mapped the drive, i'll tell you what I did then you can tell me if I did that
I entered the ip address of the NAS, which brought up the folders, right clicked on a folder and selected map network drive. viola, networked drive, no good?
