NAS Storage. How to add FTP support
I have a Seagate Mirra network storage device which is really a small PC running linux with a propriatary client that runs on Windows machines to provide both backup and web based access to files on the server over the internet. When I try to access it via the IP it appears to also be running Jetty.
Here's the thing. There is no linux client to use with this box but as of now I really don't want to destroy the setup such that the windows backup won't work from other machines.
Can someone give me a few pointers on setting up FTP on this box that will accept connections from backup software running on Linux, or on a way to mount that drive so I can backup to it from Linux boxes without needing the client software?
I don't know what distro is used but by connecting a keyboard, mouse and monitor I can probably watch it boot and find out. There is no GUI that I can see. There is no CD but I can plug in an external CD via USB. The box has video, audio, PS/2 and USB ports as well as parallel and serial ports.
Any thoughts welcome.:
I have a URL to more info but the board won't allow me to post it so you will need to Google it for additional data.
