WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR GREEN 1.5TB SATA3.0 DESKTOP STORAGE 64MB CACHE BARE and I use them for my ever growing HD medias including photos shots.
I am listing the steps to get it up and running as a quick start guide for future, to avoid having to go through quite a few pages on the actual wiki page.
Copy fun_plug and fun_plug.tgz to top most level of Volume 1 and restart the NAS box.
The manufacturer has a hook in the framework itself to ensure that it looks for a file for fun_plug and execute it, this adds additional stuff that kickstarts the process, by enabling the telnet process.
Connecting the first time.Once the box has re-booted, try telnetting to it (you will need to find its ip address, possibly using nmap (sudo nmap -sS -O 192.168.1.0/24). If you get the shell, everything got installed properly.
You are now in!Secure the box, FIRSTFirst run the pwconv utility and update the shadow-file
and ensure that you promptly change your ‘root’ password as the first thing.
Now activate the root-user, which comes disabled by default
usermod -s /ffp/bin/sh root
Now ensure that the password gets written down and stored permanently on the drive.
Enable sshIts a good idea to run shell sessions over ssh for obvious reasons so disable telnet and enable ssh using the following commands.
chmod a+x /ffp/start/sshd.sh
sh /ffp/start/sshd.sh start
chmod -x /ffp/start/telnetd.sh #that makes the start script unexecutable
Now reboot to confirm that telnet is off and ssh is on. Try both and if all worked properly you should only have access to login via ssh and not via telnet.
