7513NSLU2 IP 0,0,0,0
- Aug 1, 2008(Running WinXP SP3 connected directly into the NSLU2 via ethernet)
I am hoping that someone can help me figure out what happened to my Slug!
I had initially ran Sercomm and updated the NSLU firmware to unslung
6.10 beta, of course I did NOT follow the directions explicitly, I just
wanted a simple file server that could be expanded at a later date. I
had an 80gig NTFS on USB2 and a 250gig EXT3 on USB1. I had configured
the slug for 192.168.1.121 fixed ip
After several weeks I wanted to share our music across the share using
Going back to the Unslung readme, I realized that I had not "unslung"
the firmware onto my external hd. So I disconnected the hard drives,
telneted into redboot, but when I did, I was not prompted for a user
name or password. I found that strange, but when I tried to connect the
EXT3 hard disk, I was immediately disconnected from my telnet session. I
telneted in several more times with the same result, connect the drive,
get disconnected. On my last telnet session I began to poke around and
everything I typed, except 'help' returned an error.
I thought maybe I needed to follow the readme and start over (No, I
didn't back up the original unslung flash.) so I re-flashed the slug
with Sercomm and Unslung 6.10 beta. I put the slug in upgrade mode with
the reset button and everything went perfectly, however when the slug
rebooted, I could no longer access it. I ran NetStat -an and I could see
the slug at IP 0,0,0,0 listening with the port numbers following the ip
I obviously can't telnet into the slug and the web interface no longer
works no matter what IP I enter. I can still get into upgrade mode with
the reset button but I have a feeling that re-flashing isn't going to do
anything unless I can specify a default IP address.
I've waded through the nslu2-linux.org site, wiki, FAQ and dozens of
pages on google but I can't find a solution. I do have hope because I
can still access the slug through upgrade mode.
I know there is a genius or two in the group here, can someone help me?
