Subject: [nslu2-general] Multiple Network Neighborhood Entries
First off, I'm a total newbie at all this. I just got my NSLU2 the
other day. I have a Windows XP network with a Linksys 4-port router.
I don't know anything about Linux. I have 2 external USB hard drives
(one 60GB and one 80GB) connected to the NSLU2.
The problem I'm having is, after I changed the System name on the
Admin web page from the cryptic "Lkg7d18ff" to "NSLU2", the old
system name is still showing up for both USB drives on the network.
However, only the drives listed under the "NSLU2" system actually
work. The others throw a "could not connect to network device" type
of error. It's like they're not there, but they're still showing,
even after I rebooted the NSLU2 and powered down the machine I made
the System name change from.
So, here's what my Network Neighborhood looks like:
/admin on Lkg7d18ff
/admin on NSLU2
/disk1 on Lkg7d18ff
/disk1 on NSLU2
/disk2 on Lkg7d18ff
/disk2 on NSLU2
Is there a way to get rid of all this extra Network Neighborhood
trash? I shouldn't be seeing the Lkg7d18ff stuff, and I really don't
want to see the admin entries, either. I'll use the web page to
login to my NSLU2, not Network Neighborhood. Also, since I've got it
set to backup Disk1 to Disk2, I don't want to see Disk2 on my
network at all, because I can't make changes to it anyway.
I've read the Wiki file (http://www.nslu2-
linux.org/wiki/Main/HomePage) and didn't find anything related to
these issues. Can anyone help please?

- Yep, that worked! I don't know why I didn't think of that. I guess
I'm just not that familiar with networking and the Windows Network
As a side note, I was able to map a network drive to a directory on
the NSLU2 by right-clicking My Computer in Windows Explorer,
choosing Map Network Drive, and then clicking Browse to find the
NSLU2 on my network. It works great! I'm sure you all know this
already, but it wasn't intuitive to me so maybe it'll help others. I
did find the "map network drive" instructions in the user guide
later. You have to use the guide on the CD, not the one included in
the NSLU2 user interface web page.
I also tried to setup a share, but could never get it to work. Even
though I copied the directory location in the "location" box, when
permissions were setup for everyone and the share would become
available on the network, nothing was in it. I looked for new
folders that might be getting created from incorrect paths, but
found none. So I don't know why I can't create shares that work, but
it's not really a big deal for me since I can map a drive to the
So far, I'm really liking this device!
Has anyone who has it setup to do Drive1->Drive2 backups had a HDD
failure and was able to successfully restore their data from the
backup drive? I'm a little concerned about this based on a previous
poster saying that the NSLU2 wouldn't recognize the backup Disk2
after a failure.
