Post NAS Goes Off The Air 
 
Hi,
I have a QUAD NAS upgraded to the latest firmware (302) which seems to lose its  ability to accept new connections.

Any existing connections seem to remain in place but it will not accept any new samba connections and the HTTP interface issues the HTTP challenge to login and then throws a screen with an odd, skin coloured background saying;

500 Internal Error
There was an unusual problem serving the requested URL '/cgi/telnet/telnet.cgi'.
thttpd/2.25b 29dec2003

I have made direct requests for other pages which all respond in the same way. Clearly the thing is still running. I wonder if anyone else has seen this issue.
Also, it did this on the previous firmware version as well.

Any help appreciated.

G*

Hi all.
I have been playing some more with the NAS and it appears that although the interfaces behave as described above I also notice;
1. That the LCD display on the Box is asking for disks to be plugged in. i.e. 'No hard drives' message.
2. That any open samba connections to the box appear to remain live and active.

I have managed to copy next to 1TB from the box via a windows machine whilst it has been refusing connections from elsewhere.

Post Re: NAS Goes Off The Air - RESOLVED 
 
All,
Thanks for the many replies to this post, they have been really helpful.
It would appear that  the solution to the problem is to kill the powersave daemon that is running from boot-up.

I am not entirely sure why the powersave is causing the problem as I can see the disks suspend and then resume, however, it appears that some apps that have files open do not work any longer.

As I say, for anyone else who is interested/having the same issue.

1. Enable telnet
2. Log on as root (password as per admin)
3. ps -Af
4. find the pid for the powersave daemon
5. kill -p <pid>

That should do the trick.

G*
