Dropbox Manager 1.1.3 (R6x86)

With some spare time at my hands and a nagging user (that would be you, B. ;)) I made some changes to the Dropbox Manager for ReadyNAS OS 6 (x86). I not only fixed the somewhat erratic startup behavior after a reboot of the ReadyNAS. Then I made Dropbox Manager to check for an existing installation and if there is one, it now won’t overwrite a previous install. This will prevent a reinstall from downgrading a possibly installed testing release to the latest official one. And lastly I also added user/admin authentication. This means that now you have to authenticate when trying to open the Dropbox Manager web page directly. Most likely you never noticed that you didn’t have to because most users go through the ReadyNAS Dashboard anyway and thus already were authenticated. If you’re using the “admin” account you won’t see any changes on the Dropbox Manager web page. If, however, you authenticate with normal user credentials, you’ll only see the management functions for the Dropbox of the user you authenticated as. Which means you can now hand out links to the Dropbox Manager page to your users and let them handle their Dropboxes themselves. Ok, a lot of words for an update, so here’s the link:

Have fun!
