change root Password on original firmware
- I am running firmware NSLU2_V23R25.bin on my nslu2. This seems the last
one with telnet still in place. Now, when a usb-HD is connected, i can
easily change the root password by the backup/restore method. I do use
Windows and 7-zip to change the backup file.
Now, this does only work as long as the HD is connected. But i dont want
to have the HD spinning all the time, i want this to work with no drive at
all, or from a small flash drive. I do hate the noise of spinning disks in
Where does the linksys firmware get the password file from when it boots
without a HD ? I have tried to copy my HD-pwd-file to quite some places
but i could not make it work. Any hints ?
How can i restore telnet access with the NSLU2_V23R63.bin firmware? I do
quite like to use new features coming with this firmware.

power management of hard disks.
The Hitachi drives allow you to configure the time after which they will
stop the engine.
Maybe this is another idea how you could have both: a permanent available
drive and no noise if you don't use the drive.
Just look in the thread from yesterday or the day before...
- Thanks Oliver, but i possibly did find another way.
Using the NSLU2_V23R25_rc_flash.bin.gz firmware on the files section and a
lot of playing around i finally got telnet root into the nslu2 "flash
I did have to change the the files on the flash thow. The original setup
would not work. And starting telnet is still not auto, due to my lack of
linux knowledge. I do use the http://192.168.1.77/Management/telnet.cgi?
method for now.
Seems like i will be able to have my webpage on the nslu2 soon....
