Brand new shiny RN 102. Upgraded firmware to 6.0.5. Public, static ip address (ie not private space 192.168.X.X) . Both laptop and Netgear on the same local subnet. Https to Frontview from my laptop running FC 17 seems to work as expected. I enabled ssh in Frontview. Ssh on my laptop to localhost works. Ssh from laptop to a non-privileged user on Netgear requests a password. I enter it. The connection is immediately closed.
/etc/hosts.allow is ALL:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:allow iptables is -A INPUT -s XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/32 -m tcp -p tcp -j ACCEPT
Yes, that is turned on. Without that I wouldn't have expected to get a password challenge. It seems to me that there's a permission error. But I can't get to a command line to poke into it. Frustrating.
Thank you for the help. The problem turned out to be sort of dim. I thought I had read that admin and root were treated as the same. ssh admin@XXX didn't work. ssh root@XXX works fine. Also changing /bin/false to /bin/bash in /etc/passwd allows non-privileged ssh. And then su - if root is wanted. Maybe just me, but it seems better than accessing root directly.
am trying to setup an SQL database on my readynas RN516 to service multiple XBMC machines. I have installed mySQL server and phpmyadmin. I have created a user xbmc with full privileges and port forwarded port 3306 in my router.
But xbmc is unable to create a database - I get the error "Can't connect to MySQL server on '192.168.1.22' (10061)". I tried to telnet into the server on port 3306 and it is not open.
I tried to ssh into the server to change the "bind address" but once I log into root via putty and type in the command /etc/mysql/my.cnf and press "enter" and nothing happens.
