I came across this great website and feel that perhaps I can learn something new here. I at least hope so! I have a WD MyBook World Edition 500GB. The MioNet software is rather limited and I can it with Linux-Ubuntu. Also, I want to support a website I'm building and share files. It seems that I can do all this here? And over different operating systems too.
In order to get started, I began at the "First Steps" link. Step 1 appeared to go accordingly. I can login using root for both user name and password. After this I get [root@storge~]#. But does this mean I followed and siuccedded in installing SSH hack into the WD Mybook???? I'm lost. Step 2 says that the "Optware" must be installed but this entire process appears very involved. And for a newbie like me very confusing. Would anyone mind helping me through this step please????
Finally, once I get "Optware" installed is it possible to have GUI to use when I install programs that will enable my WD Mybook to function as a file server???? Or is everything using command lines?
Thank you for helping me.
I look forward to your replies.
