Format an USB stick/disk ext2/3, create a symlink on it:
Code: Select all
ln -s / theroot
Now you can download /etc/initng/runlevel/default.runlevel, edit it (beware, you'll have to use *nix lineendings, when on Windows, PsPad can do it for you), and upload it again.
Then download /etc/shadow, copy the password of admin (which you know) to root and upload it again. (lineendings!)
Reboot, and you should be able to login using ssh.
Create a keypair, and put the public key in /root/.ssh/authorized_keys, as Lacie likes to reset your root password.
!!!Warning!!! and disclaimer.
If you make mistakes in editing and/or uploading the files, it is possible that you brick the box. These files are crucial for a proper working system.
If you brick your box, it's your fault, and not mine.
Edit: At second thought, a bricked box should be fine after a factory reset.
Edit2: About Lacie resetting the root-password: link.
Edit3: Firmware 2.0.5 is a bit different. The ssh daemon is started on port 2222. More information here.
