I ran to the store today with the goal of picking up a new internal drive for my old workstation. Then I saw the 1TB behemoth sitting on the shelf and figured it work well enough. Anyway, got it home, set it up and discoved what a piece of crap that MioNet stuff is. Why the F do they make you use it?
I'm a windows developer and I know my way around the various flavors of Un*x. That said I have no desire to have the drive to make it do anything other than be a file server. Plain and simple - just hold my friggin SVN repositories and VM images so I can get my work done.
I'm not sure, some of you will know better, but I'm assuming the MyBook is running a Samba deamon or something behind the scenes? So if I got all engeretic I could probably reconfigure things better. But I got other fish to fry.
Anyway, for those who want hack *light* MyBook so you can live w/o that hairball MioNet this is what I've done and it seems to work. Not sure of the drawbacks doing this.
1) bring up the management web-site for MyBook (in my case http://192.168.0.XXX/auth/home.pl) create a user account that has full access to PUBLIC
2) map the drive using explorer ie \\192.168.0.XX\PUBLIC to a drive
if there is a better way to achieve this please chime in.
