Not yet, and I will be very glad if you can move development in this direction. I do not implement it because from GR8NET point of view SD-card is read-only. I hesitate to write full-sized write-capable driver for FAT16/FAT32. But under Nextor this task is really easy as SD-card data processing is performed by Nextor, the only task needed is to get data from remote location properly.

any hint on how to code that?

There's a description of system calls in the manual at the end (chapter 10.2). Check it, as well as network programming diagram, and send me email with questions - I will help you in your development.

Thanks Eugeny. I'm just starting studying the documentation of GR8Net, I'd also like to add support for GR8Net in SofaROM, this should not be too hard.

I'll maybe add the GR8Net FTP client in my todo list (most of the code can be done easily in C, with just some interface to assembly / GR8Net system calls).

There's BASIC implementation of FTP client, look here. You can use it as s starting point.

Is it now a good time to upgrade FPGA?
I'm seeing many improvements in these weeks, so I would avoid to flashing too much...

Question: does Gr8net support accessing a shared folder from another network source, lets say a Rasp.Pi or pc folder without the files inside an image.

I did not implement NFS or Windows sharing, however had such thoughts. GR8NET firmware can access HTTP-based resources through web browser or using netbload.

Can it work as web server?

I do not understand. Folder without files? Which image are you talking about? Please explain.

Eugeny, can you give an overview what GR8NET is actually doing that makes this possible?
