Hi, bought a WD Mybook WE 500GB a while back, but i have discovered I can do a lot more on it like make it into a webserver,
I cannot start ssh because I cannot install the custom firmware, I have tried the original link:
http://mybookworld/auth/firmware_upgrade.pl?fwserver=mybook1.110mb.com/firmware.php in my browser and put the username + pass in
but it gets stuck on this message for an hour:
Applying new firmware
Firmware downloaded and applied
The upgrade process takes approximately 30minutes depending on internet connection speed and general network activity.
THE USER SHOULD NOT ACCESS THE DEVICE UNTIL THE UPGRADE IS COMPLETE
The user must NOT power off the device during the upgrade process.
The user should NOTE, the front panel lights will
flicker during firmware download
extinguish for approximately 15 minutes, whilst applying the firmware
illuminate when firmware upgrade is complete
I then log on back to the \\mybookworld\ control panel and the firmware is still 01.01.18.
Can anyone tell me where i'm going wrong. or give me an alternative.
