That first hurdle is dependant on the firmware version you have.
Check on that. Commonly you will not have a firmware that has telnet
If so, that means you would want to load a freelink or openlink
firmware from www.linkstationwiki.net. This can be a bit of a task,
but its not that hard. If you follow the instructions clearly, you
can have a successful install, using openlink you can have SSH and
telnet access for the device while still running the same web
interface and having all the settings.
You know that this box is a linux box, correct? Does Himatchi make
its software for linux?
For more info:
You can get the downloadable firmware from the downloads section.
if you are going for OpenLink, the version you want is here:
There are different versions of the software, depending on your
version of linkstation.
