Re: Working HDMI output for F4-421

maybe im just old fashioned a NAS drive is a NAS drive and this is what its purpose should be you are trying to turn the nas drive into a fully fledged computer which will bloat the Nas drive and more than likely cause lots of instabilities with the OS and it wasnt its purpose, but i guess at the en...

Re: TOS 4.1.30 is released for update

Could you confirm if i need to do this, and are there any actual differences?

im guessing its because i manually installed 4.1.30 and its now been released through the auto update system?

Re: USB Copy and Formatted USB HD

i believe the USB will have been reformatted to the EXT4 file system (regardless of what you formatted it in to start with), by default windows and Macs dont support EXT4, only linux natively does (which is the OS of the Nas Drive) you can download extra apps to run on Windows \ MacOS that can read ...

Re: Working HDMI output for F4-421

presumably this would only be useful to troubleshoot connectivity issues?

out of interest what would you actually want to do with it if it was connected to a display? i assume you would also want to connect a keyboard and a mouse to it also?

Re: TOS 4.1.30 is released for update

Right think I have it, usernames are case sensitive

I just created a new user called Ftp and then tried logging on as ftp in told me my username or password was incorrect then corrected it to Ftp and it logged me in

Unusual for usernames to be case sensitive

Does this help at all?

Re: TOS 4.1.30 is released for update

Ok but my point is that it authenticated my user absolutely fine and allowed me to connect

Could it be that you aren’t typing in your passwords correctly?

What happens if you create a new user with a simple password does it allow you to connect

Re: TOS 4.1.30 is released for update

I have just checked my FTP (using 4.1.30) I didn’t even realise it was enabled, I don’t have any port forwards set from outside but using FTP Client Lite it logs me straight in on my iPhone (under wifi) using my username and password and shows me the shares I have set up so certainly natively it all...

Re: Where does the TOS operating system get installed?

The TOS will be installed on every HDD or SSD you inserted. And there will be no TOS installed on the SSD when it is used as SSD cache. so the OS doesnt run from the USB thats plugged into the board inside the unit, that is only used like a ROM? what happens if all hard drives die would all the con...

Re: Unable to retrieve data on USB disk

presumably its the same situation as mine, the file system the USB drive will be in is EXT4, this is not natively readable from a windows computer which is why your computer doesnt know what to do with it you can either use a Linux based computer (which is the operating system of the Nas Drive) or u...

Re: Backup to Drive #2

this is just a silly comment, but if this is your intention why wouldnt you set up the drives in raid so it auto backs up onto two drives? and also backup to a USB drive?
