I have added the following WikiPage Telnet
The Mybook already include a telnet deamon in busybox : just enable the line telnet stream tcp … in /etc/inetd.conf, restart inetd (/etc/init.d/inetd.sh restart) and voila !
True… this post was more for diagnosing problems with accessing console in the first place.
Just temp avail via firmware upgrade interface.
I may update the script to just do the mod instead of download a temp telnetd.
I have WD worl edition WD5000xxx.
My computer is with windows XP pro
ssh and and telnet are not enable. when I send URL:
http://"ip-my WD world"/auth/firmware_upgrade.pl?fwserver=www.geekoh.com/mybook/telnet
WD web Interface tell : "There is no new firmware available"
with "cmd" in windows. I do: telnet "ip- my WD world". I try too with putty. but It's not good.
I think have not been enable. Have you a solution?
if you get no firmware is avail, check your mybooks network settings.
It is not able to query the dns or find the gateway.
I would do the ssh version prior to doing the telnet.
http://"ip-my WD world"/auth/firmware_upgrade.pl?fwserver=www.geekoh.com/mybook/ssh1
But your issue is that your mybook is not netwoked properly.
Goto the web interface's general setup tab
click configure the network settings
go through the wizzard as manual.
Hard code your network address and mask (ex 192.168.1.36/24) which means its subnet is 255.255.255.0 (note if you use my example your ip will be 192.168.1.36, please keep it with the similar ip convention as your router and local network)
Proceed to Gateway Page
From here set your gateway address (ie addres of your router) (eg, 192.168.1.1)
Set your dns servers (either use your dns server ip that you like or isp requests) (I prefer to use the dns alias my router has built in [many routers do]) To do the dns of your router, put your router's ip (eg, 192.168.1.1)
Make sure a NTP server is set so it can keep track of proper time, it is a dumb system without much to keep a proper tick.
And click apply/finish.
It will say you need to reboot your computer, however you should not have to.
Just browse to the new ip in your browser, it may take a min or so to come back up (if your mybook does not restart, manually do it [led button, dont pull the power])
Now it should be able to do the find new firmware with the geekoh server.
Your mybook needs a valid inet connection setup to the update script to enable ssh or telnet.
If you still have issues after setting up networking, pm me and post in this thread, and I will explain how to make your local computer a server that can provide the firmware image locally] I also need to know what OS you use (ie. Linux [Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva,etc], Windows [XP,Vista,Me, 98, 3.x], Mac OSX) so I can give you customized instructions.
It essentially is an http server with a few files on it for the basics… The geekoh server does some checking using php but it is not required to do so. I just have it do the checks to provide directions if they try to visit it outside of the firmware upgrade interface.
I'm new to the linux world and i was wondering how to you get to edit the /etc/inittab file so i can make the telnet boot automatically when i start up mybook? if someone could help, i'll really appreciate it.
I'm using telnet
mybook firmware is 2.0.1+
please, can somebody write me, how to enable telnet, when I dont have ssh access ? the geekoh.com domain is expired…
No match for "WWW.GEEKOH.COM".

I need to use the firmware method to enable telnet, as I have messed around with permissions and now the SSH service won't run.
The link for the firmware method is dead. Does anyone have the scrips or a working link?
Thanks in advance,
Don't worry people.
I have managed to hack the original SSH firmware method, so that it enables telnet rather than SSH.
I have updated the wiki page with the links to the script, and also to the firmware update page.
I will host these for awhile, but if mybookworld.wikidot.com would like to host them for everyone to use, on a long term basis that would be great….
I am kind, aren't I?
Why would anyone run telnet? That is a security persons worst nightmare.
As a security major I fully back you on this…..
Telnet killed my parents and burned my house down. It's my worst nightmare.
Kidding around aside….telnet is a bad way to go.
I eat syntax like you for breakfast on my way to fight real errors.
Have old computer junk from 1983-1993? I'll buy your out-dated Tech! PM with info and offer!
While I can see your point, if you are using wifi or do not have all wired connections inside your nat secured then it does matter.
Wifi can be cracked, given enough traffic and time, pair this with the fact that you are transmitting passwords in plain text… Sounds like an issue to me.
I have never had ssh go ape on my resources, is this really an issue for you?
