Lacie 5Big Network 2 Ssh And Install Problems

Recommended Posts

Hello Community

 

I'm VERY new to all of this. Although im not a stranger to many computer topics but this is out of my reach.

I bought a NAS for my risen storage needs and thought a nice looking one would be fitting(huehuehue GAAY :D ). Also the price and accessibility from more than one PC was a concern. The result is the Lacie 5big Network2 which more and more turns out to be lacking software (can't even download a folder or download a .pages file). 

 

To make a long story short I would like to install BTS on my NAS but I can't get a SSH connection although I can access it through SFTP via terminal. I tried putty on windows with the same result. It just claims that the SSH process was rejected or didn't start.

 

Google did turn up a bit of information like specs: http://wiki.yobi.be/wiki/LaCie_5big_Network_2 and somewhere in there a custom firmware to get root access. But the only thing I understood was DIY and that all the data will be lost. With a little over 5tb on my NAS I would prefer not to lose all and not to buy another storage just to save all of that data.

If anyone could help me install the NAS btsync_arm.tar file I would be really relieved  :rolleyes:.

 

Sincere regards

@JinRho,

 

There is no installation of btsync for Linux. All you need to to is to bring binary (if you unpack the btsync_arm.tar - there will be a license and a binary) to your NAS to some folder and run it.

 

The most simple way as you mentioned is SSH access. If it is not accessible - we can try a trick. You say that you've got SFTP access to your NAS. If the user you use to access filesystem has enough permissions - you may try to bring btsync binary to NAS and force it to run with the user you logged in (just add it bash.rc for corresponding user). If you manage to do that - all you need to do next is to reboot your NAS and Sync binary will run.

 

Though note, that in with this way you start the btsync you will get a very few control over application: you can't kill or restart it.

Thank you very much for the information.

 

I suppose the best solution would be to get the SSH access right? I will try one more time to understand the problem why I can't get the access through this mode and will report back to you :)

 

Greetings Jin
