Access is restricted to MediaServer configuration

Post by jensph » Thu Jul 19, 2007 3:28 pm

Yesterday I added user name and password to the Twonky config pages.

Today I tried to log in and it fails giving red page with texts:

Access is restricted to MediaServer configuration!

I look in twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini and I find that the password was not the one I had set, but some random string. I try to log in with this one with no luck.

I edit twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini and remove user name and password. I save twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini and reboot Twonky. I still get the above message! I check twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini and the username and password are blank.

What's up with Twonky ? Anybody understand what this message is?

Agree - I cannot access my INI file to edit it

running on Linksys NAS200.

Any clues on how to lay hands on the INI file would be greatly appreciated. I also have a Ubuntu machine handy if that would help...
