        What kind of modding are you talking about... I installed optware on my
        pogoplug series 4 I dont know about the pro but i think its supposed to
        be similar to the series 4.
        I created a guide using the information found at
        http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Main/PlugComputersMy usb flash drive
        that is already formated as ext3 file system is being used out of
        /dev/sdb1 yours might be different.
        if for any reason you need root to be writeable you can run " mount -o
        rw,remount / "

        You need to activate your pogoplug first

        I. Now you need to gain SSH access to you Pogoplug.

        1) You need to open UDP port 4365 on your routerand assign an IP
        address that will always be used for your pogoplug using buildin DHCP
        rules of you router

        2) At my.pogoplug.com click on your email addresson top left corner
        and select settings then security.

        3) There should be a check box to turn ssh on ifyou do not see this
        check box make sure you are properly forwarding port 4365to the ip
        address your pogoplug is using.

        i. If
        you still can't see this option tryunregistering your pogoplug from
        the general settings section. Wait a few minutes and Activate it again.
        Youshould now see SSH enable option in your security section of

        II. Backup pogoplug stock file system always a goodidea

        1) You can do this by running the followingcommands

        i. ssh
        root@ (password: ceadmin)

        killall hbwd

        iii. cd

        iv. mkdir

        v. mount
        /dev/sdb1 /tmp/usb

        vi. wget
        http://mehl.co/files/nanddump <http://mehl.co/files/nanddump>

        vii. chmod
        +x nanddump

        ./nanddump -nf usb/mtd0.oob /dev/mtd0

        ./nanddump -nf usb/mtd1.oob /dev/mtd1

        ./nanddump -nf usb/mtd2.oob /dev/mtd2

        ./nanddump -nf usb/mtd3.oob /dev/mtd3

        ./nanddump -nf usb/mtd4.oob /dev/mtd4

        ./nanddump -nof usb/mtd0 /dev/mtd0

        ./nanddump -nof usb/mtd1 /dev/mtd1

        ./nanddump -nof usb/mtd2 /dev/mtd2

        ./nanddump -nof usb/mtd3 /dev/mtd3

        ./nanddump -nof usb/mtd4 /dev/mtd4

        xviii. busybox

        III. Preparing for optware

        1) Mount Point for USB drive

        mkdir /mnt/sdb1

        mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1/

        2) Optware location

        i. cd

        mkdir /mnt/sdb1/opt

        mount /opt /mnt/sdb1/opt

        3) Install different version of wget becausecurrent does not have
        all the features.

        i. cd

        mkdir /tmp/optPrep

        iii. cd

        iv. wget

        v. tar
        xvzf wget_1.12-2_arm.ipk

        vi. rm
        debian-binary control.tar.gz wget_1.12-2_arm.ipk

        vii. tar
        xvzf data.tar.gz

        viii. cd

        ix. mv
        wget wget.old

        x. cp
        /tmp/optPrep/opt/bin/wget /usr/bin/wget

        4) Installing Optware

        i. cd

        ii. wget

        iii. tar
        xvzf ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk

        iv. rm
        debian-binary control.tar.gz

        v. tar
        xvzf data.tar.gz

        vi. rm
        data.tar.gz ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk

        5) Setting up PATH

        i. cd

        ii. echo


        iv. ipkg

        v. ipkg
        install bash

        6) Setup auto mounting of opt dir.

        i. cp
        /etc/init.d/rcS /etc/init.d/rcS.orig

        ii. echo
        '/dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ext3 defaults,noatime 1 2'

        iii. echo
        '/sdb1/opt /opt none bind 0 0' >> /etc/fstab

        iv. echo
        '/bin/mount -a' >> /etc/init.d/rcS

        7) Setup a profile

        echo '#!/bin/bash' >> /etc/profile

        ii. echo
        'exportPATH=/opt/bin:/opt/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin' >>

        iii. echo

        boring and limited, would be much easier to be able to let it see my nas
        so when visiting finland i can let the inlaws see vids and photos etc. I
        was trying to follow several guides but they all dead link except the
        one that brought me here. This brings me to the topic of this little
        piece, is there an idiots guide for windows users with light linux
        knowledge and the ability to ssh with puitty?
