Post HOWTO: Install Optware 
 
Hi all,
I was able to install a working version of optware but had to search for the bits and pieces all over the internet. Below a small step by step tutorial to get it working on your MRT device.

I'm talking for the installation on a 35HD DUAL-NAS-E with only one disk attached and installed.
The firmware that it's currently running is : G5S604110026704 (I'll think the most current at the moment)

Steps:

Enable telnet access by browsing to http://IPNAS/cgi/telnet/telnet.cgi and enable the telnet access

Download a copy of the optware package I got the version optware-vc-01.tgz  from http://de.nas-4220.org/index.php/Packages:Optware

Make on the nas under the 'public' share a folder called 'applications' and put the tgz-file here

Access the NAS using PUTTY on the telnet port and go to the 'applications' folder

Connect using PUTTY to the IP (default user is: root, password is: admin)
You can find putty at: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Since I don't have a raid-set my disk is mounted under /mnt/ide3, if you got a raid-set I can be /mnt/md1

Go to the applications folder using cd /mnt/ide3/public/appliations

Unzip the file using: gunzip optware-vc-01.tgz

Extract it with the command: tar -xvf optware-vc-01.tar

When the extraction is complete, you'll end up with a folder called 'optware'

Go into this folder and copy the init file

cd optware

and

cp ini /etc/rc.d/init.sh

Go now to this location and execute the script

cd /etc/rc.d

sh init.sh
It should tell you, that different ssh-keys are generated. This should take some time.
The last output of the script is "Fixing permissions on the /tmp directory...".

Normally after a reboot everything should be working, personally I had some problems with connecting using PUTTY over SSH. The SSH daemon didn't seem to be started. So I went again to the install-path and re-executed the init-script. The execution was a lot faster ending with the same line (fixing tmp) but afterwards I was able to connect using SSH with PUTTY

cd /mnt/ide3/applications/optware

sh init

Hi,

The download link is now dead. Is there a way I could get a copy of the optware package to install.

Are you still using it.

Has there been any update to it.

Look forward to your kind assistance.

Best regards
