    Great ! Thanks a lot !

    Everything seems to be installed on the NSLU 2.

    My Pinnacle SB M1001 is connected with FF, but i can´t an access to the configuration side of FF.

    How can open the firefly-configuration page ? Is there no web-configuration possible (like Twonkys: My IP:9000/configpage/index.htm) ?

    My IP:3689 (or 3698) doesn´t work.

    The answer after trying “/opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-mdaapd.conf” (over Telnet) is “access denied”.

    Thanks again !

    There is, and it lives at port 3689. So http://192.168.1.77:3689 should work, (assuming the ip address of your slug is 192.168.1.77).

    If you install nano (ipkg install nano), you can edit the config file using nano by doing:


    # nano /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf

    But it’s far easier to use the web config. You can also drop by #mt-daapd on freenode, if I’m by my computer, I’m there, and I can try and help that way.

    I don´t understand what´s going on…

    After 3 restarts the NSLU reacts after “NLSU IP:3689” and i shall give the username and the password, but the device doesn´t accept root/password oder other user/password.

    If i make a login on the NSLU2 with “NSLU IP” and the same user names/password the NSLU2 coniguration menu appears. ❓

    “nano …” doesn´t work – the file isn´t there.

    Ok – i can open the configuration.

    The password ist mt-daapd – not very difficult but difficult enough if you don´t know it… I had to read a lot of long threads…

    But who ist surpristed – i have the next problem:

    Is it right that the music files must be in the folder “share/hdd/data/public/mp3” ?

    I can see the data-folder under windows network-connections, but i can´t open the data-folder, because i shall not be authorized to open this folder.

    Please help me to unravel this next mystery !

    If this is the right folder, is it possible to copy all my files per drag and drop into this folder ?

    Thanks fo your patience – i fell ashamed…

    When browsing the share under Windows, it is authentiicated as a user on the Slug.

    You can set this on the Slug in the Administration tab of the web interface
    on my machine this is http://192.168.1.77/Management/file_sharing.cgi?next_file=users.htm

    Yes, you can then browse to \slugDISK 1mp3 to copy your files across.

    The Slug has backup/Synchroinise options as well to do this. http://192.168.1.77/Management/sh_backup.cgi?next_file=backup.htm Click “Add Job” to see options

    Sorry, i don´t understand.

    There are to existing users set on the slug administration tab:

    “guest”
    “admin”

    Under “properties” i enabled “Create Private Folder (Share): Disk 2”. Under “advanced” “groups” access” the grpup user admin has RW rights.

    The usb-hd ist connected to disk 2.

    On the local network mask of Windows appaers:

    admin 2 an Lkg298063
    admin an Lkg298063
    disk 2 an Lkg298063
    guest an Lkg 298063

    When i click on the folder “admin 2 an Lkg 298063” you can see the different folders from “admin” to “upload” and the folder “share” with “hdd” and “data” in it. If i click on the “data” folder i get the message that i have no permission to open this folder.

    All other folders (admin an Lkg298063 etc.) are empty.

    So, what is the easiest way to get all my music files from the HD of my PC in the correct folder on my USB-HD connected to the NSLU2 at Disk 2 ?

    I would be very happy about a step-to-step instruction…thanks !

    If your hard drive is connected to disk 1, then that corresponds to a folder called “mp3” under DISK 1.

    It *might* be that “/share/flash/data/public/mp3” is a folder called “mp3” under DISK 2, but I don’t know, I’m running a much older version of unslung.

    Anyone?

    Try that… Make a folder called “mp3” in DISK2, then try setting the folder to “/share/flash/data/public/mp3”, go to the web status page and hit “scan”, and see if it picks up the mp3 files in that folder.

    Ok – i renamed all users, devices etc., same name, same password (i have read this in another forum).

    Now the slug is called NSLU2.

    Now under Windows/Network/Networkdevices appears

    admin an NSLU2
    admin 2 an NSLU2 (i don´t understand why, because i created only “admin”)
    disk 2 an NSLU2
    guest an NSLU2

    So it´s like it was before – i can´t open “admin 2 an NSLU2” because i shall not have the permssion. I can open “admin an NSLU2” an “guest an NSLU2” but there is nothing.

    I can also open “disk 2 an NSLU2” and dropped a flac file there. This is possible, but FF shows after a full scan no files. The same, when i create a folder “mp3” on “disk 2 an NSLU2” and drop the flac file there.

    The difference to yesterday is, that i can´t open the folders on “admin 2 an NSLU2”. This was yesterday possible ecept the folder “data”.

    The hole thing seems to be not very logical to me. I´m thinking about installing Twonkymedia, which shall be easier to configure. But i want Firefly…

    I need once again help…

    I solved the problem:

    On the firefly configuration menu i removed “share/hdd/data/public/data” and set “share/hdd”. Saving is possible, when you remove first all, i get no saving error “500general:mp3_dir” as before.

    I copied some wav and flac files in “share/hdd” and that´s it.

    Would it be a solution to avoid similiar problems for other users changing the library directory in FF-packages ?

    Maybe, but I don’t know what’s right. Maybe I could set it to the public folders (DISK1/DISK2), but I don’t know what they correspond to.

    DISK1 is /share/hdd/data/public, but I don’t know what the DISK2 share is, and I don’t know if it changed in different versions of unslung. Anyone?
