RE: [LinkStation_General] Re: Enabling and disabling telnet in firmware updates?
One issue with the disk moving is that disk has a hack on it to stop it
being mounted in anything other than the Linkstations firmware. There
is a fix to fix this, however, I am not sure whether newer revisions of
firmware will overwrite it.

If this is the case, you first need to make sure the root password from
all the pre-1.45_14 are not overwrote by the new firmware. So that you
can still login as root via the console. Otherwise, there's no way to
enable the telnet (mostly in inetd.conf) and send a HUP to read the
the other way one MAY do to re-enable the telnet is to take out the HD
and mount it with the linux workstation (with a fixed ext2fs)..but this
is the theory..I don't know if it'll work or not. But as I suggest in
other email....if the difference between the new firmware and the
1.45_13 are only minor scripts and configuration files fix..but not the
system library or so....one may be able to get a diff on those
files..and create an unoffical update package to patch from 1.45_13 to
just my 2 cents.
