    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, does not seem to work in my case (NX running v1.6.175). I just get a 404 at that URL.

    Status: Connecting to [IP]:21...
    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Status: Insecure server, it does not support FTP over TLS.
    Status: Logged in
    Status: Retrieving directory listing...
    Status: Calculating timezone offset of server...
    Status: Timezone offset of server is 0 seconds.
    Status: Directory listing of "/" successful

    ...and of course, http://[IP]/ is just the main login page.

    Yes, I just tried on an NX and got exactly what you did. Sorry.
    I tried a variety of path attempts. Nope.

    Okay thanks for checking. Guessing it was removed in the name of "security"...
