following the articles on this forum, I got SSH access to my Mybook, my harddisk to run silently, got up an ftp server, got rid of useless services running etc. woo!
Just when I was feeling proud of myself as a Linux noob, I had the 'brilliant' idea to edit my ssh-login username in passwd into lowercase since it was in capitals. In hindsight, this of course broke my ssh login name and unfortunately I closed my running shells without proper testing. Now I'm unable to login back into my MyBook. Since I disabled the webserver + interface I can't create another user to enable SSH login again. :(
The passwd file contains these users too:
default:x:1000:1000:Default non-root user:/home/default:/bin/sh
Is it possible to use one of these for ssh access? (I tried a few, but was unable to) Or did I just brick my mybook and do I have to connect my MyBook HD to a different system and use a live cd to repair my passwd? (not very funny when you only got IDE HD connections available)
Thanks in advance…
