Lost FTP access   

Postby starcrwzr » Thu Mar 03, 2016 10:00 am

I'm currently using Version 5.1.1 and FW 1.05.04. I've been using FileZilla for years to access my hard drives on my WDLXTV-Plus, but the other day, my satellite modem/router, during a reboot, assigned a new IP address to my WDLXTV. So I opened FileZilla, tried to enter the new IP address and now I'm getting error messages. Here is what I'm entering:
Address: FTPS://192.168.1.128
User: root
Password: [blank]
Port:22

This is the error that comes back:
Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.128:22...
Status: Connection established, initializing TLS...
Error: GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received.
Error: Could not connect to server

I recently added a second HD to USB2 and was able to access it through FileZilla, but now I can't get in at all. I do have access using the web front end without issues. Any advice would be appreciated.

You're trying to use SFTP with a blank password. This doesn't work. You need to set a password to use SSH or SFTP. If you want to keep using a blank password, you need to connect via FTP (port 21).

I've tried it with SFTP and SSH using all the possible combinations of user name and passwords and still no luck. I then disable SSH and tried using just FTP and I connect using either ROOT or my user name but it won't accept any passwords or null passwords. Here is what is giving me now:

Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.128:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Insecure server, it does not support FTP over TLS.
Command: USER root
Response: 331 User root OK. Password required
Command: PASS *****
Response: 530 Login authentication failed
Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server

I've given up and have decided to re-flash it with the latest version of the firmware. That, hopefully will take care of my problems.

Passwords are not changed after a firmware update. Look for the password reset app.bin

Resetting my password fixed the problem. Thanks.

OK ... Not so sure this is the place for my issue, but it is similar .... For years I have been able to connect to all my drives attached to my Live-Plus unit using advanced IP scanner ... I had no issue transferring files back and forth to my laptop ... I recently had an issue with my Plus unit and ended up hitting the reset button on the side .... Ever since that I have not been able to connect to those drives in any way with my laptop ... Webend still connects and I can make changes, but I can NEVER see the drives connected to the Plus unit ... Any idea what setting may have got switched when I reset the unit?

Can you see the drives connected in the webend? If not, you may need to connect them to a PC and run a fsck/scandisk on them to make sure the filesystem is ok.
