Titel: external storage problem  BeitragVerfasst am: 01.10.2006, 15:56 Uhr

I have an old PC plugged into my system via ethernet. The pc has freenas installed so that I can use it as networked storage.

How do I use it ? because I've tried the obvious i.e. ping, ssh, telnet, etc etc.

the only connection to this device is ethernet so I believe that I should be able to access it via a browser or terminal.

I've had a look around the net but can't find anything that might tell me how this is done.

Any guidance is very much appreciated.

regards

From their website, I know nothing about FreeNAS

FreeNAS is based on FreeBSD which is a UNIX derivative, it is NOT Linux.

FreeNAS is Alpha or Beta, its not a production release and it will have bugs in it. It is YOUR risk if you load valuable data onto FreeNAS. Review the FreeNAS licence before working with FreeNAS.

Filesystem: UFS, FAT32, EXT2/EXT3, NTFS (limited read-only)

Protocol: CIFS (samba) , FTP, NFS, SSH, RSYNC and AFP

I also found some stuff elsewhere that said I can access it via a browser with a nice GUI interface, unfortunately I keep getting the
An error occurred while loading http://192.168.7.7:
Could not connect to host 192.168.7.7

error.

Not being anyones expert, I wondered how I might see if the problem is at the linux end of the connection or not.

I'm sure that when my friend installed it and set it up, he put the IP address that I asked so in theory (well as I understand it) I should at least, be able to ping it - but that responds with a "host unreachable" error. I know that it'd normally have a username and password login, but not if my main box isn't managing to talk to it.

Is it likely that there might be an error message in my main system somewhere or so that I can find out why my main box can't reach it?

Would something like this actually need mounting before I can "talk" to it?

Or is there some linux command I can issue to find out what the system can actually "see" i.e. I can ping my laser printer and get the correct reply. So how can I find out what the system see's on the various IP addresses that have things connected in the same range?

regards

Well I've managed to work out that the problem - sort of.

The old system that I was given, has a small hard drive (6 gigs). My friend had fitted the box with a removable caddy. I got the new hard drive and it seems that the freenas doesn't like the new hard drive.

Why that might be, I don't know. I can get into the gui now anyway, so it gives me something to start looking at.

regards
