Reply To: NSLU2 Server w/MP3 Library on TeraStation Pro?



Thanks to all for the great advice. I have already hacked the TeraStation Firmware and have root access to it.

Using the smbmount command, I can now “see” my music share on my Unslung NSLU2. However, mt-daapd won’t start. It clearly has to do with permissions. I have a “guest” account on the Terastation and I don’t have a read/write restrictions on the share.

Here’s the log.

I’ve tried putting my Terastation user id and password into the mt-daapd.conf file as the runas and password with no success. I suspect I will need to create an account on my NSLU2 that matches both user ID and password to an account on the Terastation but don’t understand how that relates the Samba share on the Terastation.

Thanks again for all the help.
