Heres another app.bin pack for use in WDLXTV, my custom WDTV firmware. The following pack contains an SSH server, for a more secure remote connection than telnet.
Simply unzip dropbear-ssh.app.bin.zip, then place dropbear-ssh.app.bin onto a harddrive/flashdisk & boot your WDTV with the device connected.
You will now have an SSH server running and can use it instead of telnet. Any standard client will do: putty, xterm, etc. The application will be mounted in /apps/dropbear-ssh.
NOTE: before you can remotely log into your WDTV via ssh you will have to set a root password. This is done like so:
$ telnet wdtv-01
Connected to 192.168.0.109.
Escape character is '^]'.
wdtv-01 login: root
BusyBox v1.10.0 (2009-02-15 05:09:42 CST) built-in shell (msh)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
Changing password for root
Password for root changed by root
If you are told:
passwd: cannot update password file /etc/shadow
then you need to upgrade to WDLXTV-0.2, I spaced and forgot to do something important in 0.1 : S
- You must use WDLXTV-0.2 (rectifies password issue)
- Passwordless login is disabled (for you own good)
- The system will become unstable if you remove the device containing the app.bin.
