Maxtor MSS II installation

Post by crisme » Tue Apr 13, 2010 12:15 am

I am currently running Central Axis on my Maxtor MSS II NAS drive, I am looking to install Twonky on the NAS drive, but I am not sure how to do this and which version to install, can somebody provide a step by step instruction set.

hi crisme.

To be able to install Twonky Media Server on a MSS II you have to ensure that you are running a telnet enabled firmware on your MSS II. There is an alternative firmware available for Central Axis on the MSS II which I am using with Twonky as well.
For details and download links you can visit this forum:
http://www.openmss.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=15
There are several threads discussing it. On of those is here:
http://www.openmss.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1150

But you can find more if you search that forum.

Personally I would recommend you to use TMS 4.4.18 with the MSS II as it runs without problems on my MSS II.
Once you have activated it I would suggest to swich off the automated folder watch otherwise the hardisks on the MSS would always search for new content. I configured it to 1440 minutes to have one scan every 24 hours.

Hope this will help.

First download the Custom Firmware 3.5.74 from openMSS
http://www.openmss.org/forum/viewtopic. ... 1150#p5612
download the newest Twonky Server for MSS2
http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/5. ... -5.1.3.zip
(for later installs http://www.twonkyvision.de/installs.html)
Install the Custom Firmware under "System Maintenance" "System Update" Manual Install"
Reboot the MSS
Then go to "Advanced Features" "Advanced Configuration" "Services" and activate "utelnetd Telnet-Daemon [R]"
(only available on English setup)
Create under "Shared Folder Management" a folder " Public " (must be written in that way, without the " !!! )
create a folder " twonky " in the Public folder
unzip "twonkymedia-mss2xxx" and copy all unziped files to te folder " twonky " on your MSS2
run the " nassetup.exe " and check the "Accept" button, uncheck the " uninstall old server " box and follow the instructions (to get the ip adress of your MSS2, start "Maxtor Manager")
reboot your MSS2 and go to the twonky page on your MSS2 ( NAS-IP-Adress:9000 )
