What is the advantage to installing debian

EMPREX said...

if you have Knowledge on embedded Linux, you can run many applications on NSD-100.

I have a problem with this.

Everything works ok but only if I connect the NSD-100 directly to my PC. But if I try to connect using SSH whilst the NSD-100 is connected to my router, I get a connection refused error.

The NSD is enabled in the DMZ on the router, so we can rule that one out.

Oh how strange, it seems to have fixed itself !

Now all I need to do is work out how to download the packages within debian, as the NSD-100 seems to be having trouble connecting to the url.

Also a couple of other suggestions for the next firmware:

Newer/Better Torrent Client.
Option for forced encryption.
Option to block incoming legacy connections.

Before using SSH to NSD-100 you must using PC (windows) access folder “public” of external USB HDD via workgroup.

Plug and unplug power core for turn on/off nsd-100, holding eject USB key for 20~30 seconds and hear twice "bee", you could safely remove external HDD from NSD-100.
