Mionet is used by the Western Digital Anywhere access software. If you aren't using it you can disable it to save processing power.
Many individuals have had a problem with the Mionet service. The service allows access to the Network remotely; however, it does not allow for the transfer of files such as .avi and .mp3.

Blue Ring

This was suggested by our very own user WorldBook in the forums here, thanks for the tip :)

Disabling MioNET
DO NOT rename the mionet.sh script- that's one ugly way to stop mionet, and a failry good way to 'brick' your book.
Just prevent the mionet.sh script from being called in the first place during boot up.
Just comment out the mionet line in post_network_start.sh as follows:

start() {
      if [ ! -e "$POST_NETWORK_STARTED_FILE" ]
        $SCRIPTS_PATH/crond.sh start
#       $SCRIPTS_PATH/mionet.sh start

White Light

The white light has an option on the web interface (Basic > Remote Access) that allows you to disable Mionet at startup, unfortunately, while the startup script correctly obeys that setting, there is a bug in a watchdog script that ignores it and will re-enable Mionet every ~20mins. I suspect this has been fixed with Firmware 01.02.04. Your should be able to disable Mionet from the control panel without hacking

The fix, suggested by magugu here, is to edit /usr/mionet/monitorCVM.sh and just below the comment lines at the top (prefixed by '#') add the following:

# Start of hack to make Mionet obey startup flag
if [ ! -f "/etc/.mionet_on_startup"  ]; then
 exit 1
# End of hack to make Mionet obey startup flag

The fix makes the script look for the flag (/etc/.mionet_on_startup) created by the web interface. The script terminates if the flag isn't found, but if the flag does exist it will continue as normal (it's designed to automatically restart Mionet if it is found not to be running)

Blue Ring: another way

Edit the /etc/init.d/post_network_start.sh file. Comment out the following two lines

$SCRIPTS_PATH/mionet.sh start
$SCRIPTS_PATH/mionet.sh stop

NOTE this may cause you to be unable to acceess your PUBLIC folder or any other folders created with Mionet. The simplest way to fix this is by running the following command:

chown -hR www-data:www-data foldername

PLEASE NOTE! This will make your system very insecure. Anyone that has access to your network will be able to see these files. This is only meant to be used on systems in which you trust the individuals who have access to your network or if you are the only one accessing said network. If you need a more secure system, information can be found here.
