NDAS(Network Direct Attached Storage) is Ximeta’s patented technology which enables all digital storage devices(HDD, ODD, Memory, Tape Drives) direct connection into standard Ethernet networks. All users or systems on the network can directly control, use and share those devices.
This app.bin pack provides the drivers necessary to access Ximeta’s proprietary NDAS device[s]. A configuration file is provided to handle automagic mounting at boot. Much thanks to Sarantos (sda_gr) for sponsoring this addition and helping out with the debugging (half way around the planet)
Simply unzip ndas.app.bin.zip, then place ndas.app.bin and ndas.config onto a harddrive/flashdisk & boot your WDTV with the device connected. You will now have any NDAS devices which are listed in ndas.config mounted and available to you. The pack is currently based on the 1-1.15 driver.
# YOU MAY COPY THIS FILE TO /conf FOR PERSISTENT SETTINGS
# IF YOU DO THIS THEN YOU MAY DELETE ndas.conf
# FROM THE DEVICE CONTAINING ndas.app.bin
# IF THERE IS AN ndas.conf LOCATED ON THE DEVICE WITH ndas.app.bin
# IT WILL BE USED *INSTEAD* OF THE VERSION IN /conf
# format is as follows
# X = 0 - 7
# modes are:
# r - read-only
# w - read/write
# s - GFS
# for example
# this would initialize two NDAS's
# one in write mode the other read-only
Note the above ndas.config file. You may list up to 8 NDAS devices in this file. They are named like such: NDAS0, NDAS1, …, NDAS7. Also note that the write mode is mandatory for each NDAS device listed.
For persistent settings you may copy ndas.config to /conf and delete it from the device containing the app.bin.
- The system will become unstable if you remove the device containing the app.bin while the wdtv is on.
