    Hi fellas,

    I am using the latest Merlin on my new 86U. I have openVPN server and client with selective routing. Totally cool and easy setup!

    I hooked up a 2Tb WD passport formatted NTFS. I set up user accounts and transferred about a TB to it. All was working fine till I added DLNAmedia server to it. I added a folder onto the smb section and used that for the mini DLNA. Not sure if this caused the router to stop accepting any files.

    I turned off the media server and rebooted. This did not help.

    I’m going to format it with my Pi to ext4 if the router has issues with NTFS.

    Can it write in whatever Mac uses? My main comp is an air.

    I would stay away from NTFS.

    You can format ext4 with the router;
    mke2fs -t ext4

    I formatted my 1Tb drive in MAC OS extended using my MacBook and then partitioned it. Plugged the drive into the ASUS using one partition for Time Machine and the other as a network drive. It works.
