The 'Random Tools' are command line utilities (just like Midnight Commander). So to use them you have to login over telnet or ssh. (Which can be enabed in Control Panel, Terminal)

Help with what? The linux command line is a very powerful makeup. Almost everything you can imagine can be done from the shell. (And some you can't imagine. The shell (ash) is Turing complete, so in theory you can write a virtual machine in shell script, which you use to boot Windows. In practice you can't. The NAS doesn't have enough memory for that)

If you only want to unrar a file, you have to locate that file. The shares can be found in /i-data/sysvol/. Try

Code: Select all

cd /i-data/sysvol/
ls -l
If you have found your file, simply type

Code: Select all

unrar filename
if it's in the current directory, or

Code: Select all

unrar /path/to/filename
if it's somewhere else.

Code: Select all

unrar -h
or

Code: Select all

unrar --help
could also be helpful.
