Can't Telnet

    I'm trying to set up a web server using the instructions found here:

    flashed unslung
    set-up the website user
    added the files to the disk

    Now, I need to change the port on the nslu2, so it goes to my website and not the nslu2 admin page.

    The problem is, I can't telnet. I've enabled the telnet session, but when using telnet, I enter the login and then the password, putty just disappears. The same thing happens when I use Windows telnet.
    I'm using admin/admin

    Please help! Thanks!

    EDIT: If I set putty to stay open, I get the error message: "Connection Closed by Remote Host"
    EDIT2: I'm behind a router, but I shouldn't have to open any ports inside my LAN, should I?

    I was able to get using:
    root / uNSLUng

    and then I did:

    cd /etc
    cp thttpd.conf thttpd-website.conf 
    Now, how do I edit the thttpd-website.conf?
    Sorry, I'm a noob at this stuff.:biggrin:

    I guess logging in that way doesn't work, b/c when I do cd /etc, nothing happens.
    And, it can't find the file anyway.:confused:

    The main GUI page says:
    "uNSLUng Status: Running from internal flash"

    This is what I see when I login using root / uNSLUng
    Does it look right?
    WebServer login: root
    Welcome to Unslung V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.10-beta
       -------- NOTE: RUNNING FROM INTERNAL FLASH  --------
    This system is currently running from the internal flash memory,
    it has NOT booted up into "unslung" mode from an external drive.
    In this mode, very few services are running, and available disk
    space is extremely limited.  This mode is normally only used
    for initial installation, and system maintenance and recovery.

    ...at least give me a hint:tongue:

    I'm using a 2gb flash disk, if that helps.
    The NSLU2 can read it and I can write to it, but I guess my problem is that it's not mounting.

    Well, I finally figured it out, so if anyone is curious or a similar problem brings you to this thread:


    I didn't read it, so I didn't know about 'UNSLINGING'

    ...would have saved me a lot of headache, but its working great now.
