Post Latest Firmware 
 
Hi all,
I wish I could have done this a lot before today, but unfortunately I've been really busy in the last period.
Anyhow, here I am to post the latest firmware which I've been given directly from mrt (to be more precise, it was Tim who gave me it!).

I've uploaded it to a server of mine so that there won't be any expiration, dl limit reached or so on
You can download the file from this link: http://moviemaniac.altervista.org/dl/G5S604110026704.tar.gz
Please note that as the server prevents hotlinking, you will be prompted a page saying "La risorsa richiesta accessibile qui", just click on the word "qui" to download the file.

I've installed this firmware with success on a couple of 35HD-DUAL-NAS-E (mine and my brother's) and they are currently working flawlessy.
I take no responsibility in wathever might be the result of the upgrade on your machine. remember that MRT suggests to make a full backup and to unplug your hard drives from the nas before proceeding with the upgrade.

Enjoy it!

P.S. I also gave Tim some suggestions on how to improve the NAS at zero costs! They could simply improve the daap client that comes built-in the firmware. I've manually edited some configs and the NAS is able to stream almost every kind of audio file. The fact is that as soon as I reboot it, config files get restored to default values and I have to do all the job from the beginning. If there's anyone interested into this matter, and with good skills, we could write down a piece of code that runs at boot time and that simply overwrites restored config files with a backup copy of our custom ones, so that daap server runs as its maximum.

No, they didn't. They only asked me what firmware my NAS was running on and then sent me it.
I was running the 700 firmware.

Anyhow, it seems that I somehow screwed my nas. I reinstalled 704 and something has happened. The NAS is on, my routes sees it ang correctly assign the IP. But I cannot access the web interface.

Some days ago I was able to reach it after doing something via telnet like starting apache2, but I think that this is not the point. What services should I start in order to reach the web interface?

Thanks

Well, I must admit that it's kinda frustrating not receiving any answer in a while. It seems that there is not so much "life on mars"

First of all let me wish happy new year to everybody.

Today I filanally had the time to put my hands on the nas once again.

I discovered that it is really slow at startup. I can access the nas via telnet after a few seconds, but if I use the "ps" command, I receive a list of processes wich is only partial and the web interface is not accessible. For example, this is the situation as I am writing:

and, as soon as I finisced writing the sentence and copy paste the code above, the situation has changed and it is the following:

which is a bit different and shows thttpd running for example, plus a bunch of other things which I cannot comprehend. It took more than 10 minutes for the boot process to be completed and for the web interface to be accessible.
I think that this is not the way it is supposed to work. It seems that installing transmission somehow slows things down even more. Not only this, transmission isn't reachable. If I try to start/stop it, it takes more than 120 seconds before the task completes. If I click on "link to transmission" button, the pages times out and nothing appears. I've just tried to uninstall transmission and it took more than 11 minutes before I was able to access the web interface again. Now everything is up and running again.

I do not know what to do at this point. Hoping that someone can help in investigating this.

Bye

I bought an external hd, I downloaded everything from the nas then I formatted the NAS with ext2 (the same as before).
Now it runs smooth and fast, so maybe there was some issue with the old partition. I own this NAS since 2007, and I formatted it only once, right after I bought it.

So the problem is solved.
