How to upgrade the firmware other than the other way

Post by roncromberge » Mon Jan 17, 2011 5:48 pm

Hello,

I'm a new sitecom homestorage user. and already with some problems.

1. I can't set my ip adress to an fixed one. I can set to fixed. but i can't change the ip-adress

2. I can't update my firmware from .27 to .33 or which way i choose.

I have downloaded de .33 zipfile from the sitecom site. i locate the zip from the webinterface on my local harddrive, i push the apply button.
it's thinking. and after a while it comes with 4 rows need no update. And i'm stuck with the old firmware.

Please help.

Greetings,

Ron Cromberge

You can go straight to the newer. I asked that directly to the sitecom support.

If it says that needs no update, maybe it actually don't need it. Check the version that the webpage says it is installed. In any case, maybe you can try to force it by changing /etc/sysconfig/config/version to a previous one, although it may not work and is maybe risky. You can also download the individual files to the device, as in the second method from EnableCustomStartupScript wiki page but whithout modifying the images.
