Vu+ Linux matters.

Just purchased a vu+ Zero, and slowly getting to grips with it (I think!)

To enable me to record onto a usb stick I need to "By a software FTP or by telnet create a folder named movie on your usb stick: /media/usb/movie" I've had quick look at programmes that deal with FTP and telnet, and I don't know if it's my sadly shrinking grey matter, but it seems incredibly complex for what appears a simple task.

I'm using Windows 10 at present for computers/laptop. Can someone point me in the direction of a simple way of doing this. I would be very grateful.

Well I'd plug the USB stick into your computer and try creating those 3 folders using Explorer. . ie double click the usb icon, then right-click / New Folder.Then move the stick into the Vu+ and see what happens.

If that doesnít work then youíll have to do what they say and create the folder while the usb is plugged into the Vu. First question will be: Do you know the IP address of the Vu? If you donít understand that question then you've got a bit of work ahead of you :-)

Almost, but not quite. If the Vu+ is running Linux then a USB stick plugged in will be 'mounted' at /media/usb. So using a Windows system, you would only need to create the /movie folder at the top level of the USB device. Once plugged back in to the Vu+, it would appear as /media/usb/movie.

Logging in via FTP (if you can find the Vu+ IP address as w.x.y.z) depends on the FTP client used. Assuming a command line FTP (opening a cmd window):
ftp w.x.y.z
log in, if prompted (assuming you know the Vu+ id and password)
ftp>cd /media/usb
ftp>mkdir movie
ftp>quit
