May have some info to help on
this:
It has a torrent client, which I suspect is transmission.
When I go to http://192.168.0.120:9091/ I get the following meanding transmission is running.
I ran top and saw transmission-daemon there
but they've changed the web interface so I can only select upload and download bandwidth.
What I need to do is restrict times and it's not available in the web ui.
403: Forbidden----snip---

Code: Select all
nano .config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

then change the line
    "rpc-whitelist": "127.0.0.1",
with
    "rpc-whitelist": "127.0.0.1,192.168.1.*",
or whatever your network range is.

Segate Personal Cloud hard drive NAS OS


leads me to this
https://duckduckgo.com/html?q=Segate%20 ... 20NAS%20OS
which leads me to this
https://www.seagate.com/gb/en/support/n ... nal-cloud/

i think you should start there and see what is possible, and once you get a few basic concepts sorted out you can rephrase your question.

and if you bought it new, you should really be asking them for support.

personally i think these sort of products are snake oil at best.

I managed to get in but turning on ssh on the web ui using a URL parameter.
However, I can now sudo and list contents but I cannot install anything.
apt-get is not recognised.
dpkg does not work so although I can download using wget, I cannot install anything.
vim, ed, nano do not work so I cannot edit transmission.

Any ideas how I can get apt installed so I can at least start to edit things?

I contacted support. They told me SSH was forbidden, which is stupid because they allow SSH web apps to be installed via the UI!

It's probably their own respin of Debian or a derivative. The 3.10 kernel was never the default in a debian release, as it went from 3.2 in wheezy to 3.16 in jessie.

Seems like they want you to set up an account with them and manage users and passwords via a web interface. They may not want anyone to mess with the system at all...well, get cracking! https://www.seagate.com/manuals/network ... passwords/
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.2.1, Pale Moon 27.6.0, Audacity 2.2.0, mpv 0.27.0, Corebird 1.7.1, Firefox 57.0, SMPlayer 17.11.2

"respin" and "derivate" are likely beautified terms; my guess is they ripped out everything that takes up space and would enable the user to actually do something witht he device.
if you still have warranty, i'd stop before you break it.
if not, i think i'd try to hack it - as in, install a completely new OS.
but that would require a substantial amount of web research on your side.

btw, my ARM laptop uses a 3.10.x kernel; maybe this is an ARM device, too?

The manual says I have the ability to install a manual rbw package but I have to build that file myself.
Any ideas how I can build transmission into an rbw file?
The terminal seems to have rainbow installed but not much else.

what's an rbw file?
that was a rhetorical question; you really need to do more research if you're so intent on doing this.
and, if you want help from here, you have to document it better. to us. because we do not own one of these devices, nor are we seagate employees.
