Hello all,

I want to install a better torrent client in my HMCE, and I understand I need to enable root access for that.

However, I've tried following the steps in this post http://iomega.nas-central.org/wiki/Root_access_enabling_(Home_Media_CE) and I can't upgrade the firmware - it just says "The software could not be updated." (I'm using the file enable_telnet.tgz.encrypted provided in that link; renamed it to enable_telnet.tgz.

So, can someone please help me with that (without disassembling the drive)?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Cheers!

That wiki page is a bit of a mess. Here's the only relevant part:

- Go to http://<IP ADDRESS OF NAS>/diagnostics.html
- Tick checkbox to enable SSH.
- Upon restart, login with username 'root' and password 'soho<admin password>' (All one word. Example:'sohoabc123'. If no admin account is set- just 'soho')

Hello seidler2547,

Cheers! It worked like a charm!

However, after that, instead of trying new torrent clients, I'm giving OpenMediaVault a try. Seems good so far.

Thanks and happy new year! :)

Sorry if this is now dead....

I can access via putty, however the file structure is read only.

I must be missing something obvious. Any suggestions welcomed.

Thanks

No, the system files are indeed read-only. The data partition is, of course, mounted read+write.
