I have a Buffalo Linkstation Live where I modded the firmware to access it via Telnet and install Transmission (to replace the built-in Bittorrent that didn't run very well).
I'd like to install a download manager like
in the NAS. That is, a regular http/ftp download manager with the usual multiple download, queue features, and a web browser GUI interface. Unfortunately, I don't know how to go about it.
I can use Putty to telnet to the device and log in as root. I found the command (uname -a) for identifying the OS online, entered it, and got the ff:
Linux Nas 22.214.171.124
I entered "help" and found the ff. header in the help screen:
GNU bash, version 3.2.0(2)-release (arm-none-linux-gnueabi)
I followed these instructions to install Transmission:
I'm guessing that Optware is a program that allows me to install software via ipkg and downloaded using wget, and killall is used to close programs so that I can edit the settings before running them again.
