    I am looking for a basic single disc NAS that has a FTP client so I can download very large files unattended. Looked at the major NAS manufactures and they only seem to have Bittorrent clients.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the answer!.....Also, do you know if it supports SFTP? I looked at the docs that I could find and it was vague.

    Just to add my 2cents.
    I have had two Syno Nas now and they both do ftp/sftp.
    Your paying a premium for Synology but man you get great software and the community is super active.
    I have recently switched over from running crashplan via the 3rd party app by Patters and now run it in "Docker" as a container.
    Love the Syno NAS'.
    Good luck!
