creating directories   

Postby EvilWayz » Thu Jun 30, 2016 2:50 pm

Thru blind luck I got Transmission installed because I actually know how to use it since it's on all my linux boxes. What I don't know how to do is create directories on attached hard drives without unplugging them and creating them using a laptop. I understand it has something to do with telnet, but I haven't used that in twenty years and don't remember how.

ok I'm following these directions:

Linux

Type this command:

telnet 192.168.1.102

Well, what are we doing? We are trying to enter like the Administrator(root) or Super User. You will see something like this

pint0@debian:~$ telnet 192.168.1.102
Trying 192.168.1.102...
Connected to 192.168.1.102.
Escape character is '^]'.

WDTVLIVE-6f1ec login: root
Password:
#

NOTE: there is no password the first time (just press enter

But when I hit enter, it says [code]Login incorrect
WDLXTV-0dfc5 login: Connection closed by foreign host.[code]

What Am I doing wrong? I'm pretty sure i never set a new root password. I tried using putty, with the same result.

Also, do I use the reset program by placing it on the root of a flash drive and powercycling the device like I would flashing or installing an application?

Yes, you need to reset your password. It doesn't get reset when you flash a firmware.
