Telnet disabled, how can I enable it?   

Postby mntgoat » Thu Feb 11, 2016 10:31 am

I have a WD TV Media Player (WDBYMN0000NBK). I can get to the web interface and log in. I can tenet to 30000, but I can not telnet on 23 or ssh on 22. How do I go about enabling that?
Thanks.

You have a Gen4. If you can connect to the WDLXTV webend (not WD's webend!), you should see services on the left. Clicking on telnet/ssh should give you the option to turn it on or off.

Use a web browser and type the ip address of your wdtv in the address bar.

Nope, that's the official WD webend (first time I see it). I'm not an expert on Gen3/4, but check the firmware thread and see if it really boots WDLXTV, or if it boots the stock firmware. Also, I think the webend might run on a different port for Gen3/4 - either search the forum or use nmap to do a portscan on your wdtv.
