************ DISCUSSION *************

Suggestion: When it comes to testing RedBoot access, the README should explain how to leave the RedBoot mode after telnet'ing worked fine - by command "reset" afaik (by Frank)

Please also include telnet (where to find software) along with a summary of commands including re the editor commands,ssh installation, theipkg passage, diversion scripts.

The bit I would I would really have appreciated and still would is some understanding of samba. I set up the shares on a slug with operating system on usb2 flash (native), and my mail files on the hard drive (with 5 fat32/ntfs partitions). Itried to set shares using the web interface. Did something from attachfat32drive and then set the shares using the web interface. I opened my router firewall to allow inbound traffic to the slug and did not realise anybody could read all my email using the web interface without use of any passwords. This was/is very concerning to me as it was for longer than I would have liked.Equally it limited access from xp home explorer on the home network.
