This may happen on Internet Explorer. Try following procedure.


Try connecting to the device by going to "ftp://User:Pass@NAS", replacing "User" with the username, "Pass" with the password, and "NAS" with the name or IP address of the LinkStation or TeraStation.
Internet Explorer will try to login as an anonymous or guest user account first and will normally not prompt for username and password unless it cannot get in otherwise.
You may also want to try a FTP client program such as FileZilla that will allow you to specify a username and password before connecting.
