    I owned DSL-AC68U router which I sold and bought an AC86U which is new to me. I'm using Merlin on it.

    I can remember that couple of years ago I set FTP with anonymous login on my DSL router and also allowed it on WAN, so everyone knowing my DNS or IP could change files on my disk attached to the router.

    Now I cannot do that. On the moment I set "Allow anonymous login" I cannot change anything reagarding file permissions. Was this feature disabled in the newer firmwares? Or only AC86U is not supporting it?

    I figured out... it is still possible, I just wanted to copy a file starting with dashes (-------*) and it didn't work out, but not because of permissions but because of the filename

    yes, should work as previous on your DSL, just the same.
