LinkStation Telnet help
« on: October 29, 2008, 08:22:36 am »
   

I have a linkstation that does not show any signs of a problem.  Powers up like normal no beeps to let me know there is an issue just the same old Power and Link lights.  But I do have a problem..I can not access the linkstation so I tried resetting and tried Emergency Mode and I still can not access the Linkstation.  I have tried using the NAS client utility and it does find my LinkStation but I can not access the shares or open the configuration Settings web page.  I have been successful at opening a telnet session but now I am not sure how to browse to the directory that holds my data so that I can run a cp command to copy my data off.  Below you will see the directory structure that I see when I telnet into the Linkstation but I dont know where to go from here.  Any help is appreciated..

   Open the Nas Navigator, if the letters EM are in the hostname (as it appears to be "LS-GL-EM7C0 ") then the unit is in EM mode and so just reinstall the firmware. Make a direct connection and download the latest version from the buffalo website, match the IP range of the PC and the linkstation through the TCP/IP settings on your LAN card and deactivate all AV and firewall SW and run the LSUpdater.exe file contained in the download.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

I have already tried a direct connection and running the lsupdater.exe.  The updater can find the drive but fails to update.
