I dont know my distro

Hi all,
I have a camera system/DVR that Samsung made and it must have been their first as it has NO support. No firmware, drivers, half the time the don't recognize the model number.

Some of the information running on is is unusable such as email port is not editable and set SMTP at 25. I know if i find the files i can edit these.

I managed to connect via Telnet. Ill post below and see what you guys make of it.

I want to let everyone know im not as good at linux as the above may imply. I was at it for 3 hours to get this far and my goal is to setup a FTP server on this box to download (Backup) the machine before editing.

I am not sure what it is but this
" Linux 2.4.21"

This is an embedded device and therefore not a typical x86 desktop distribution. Most utilities on embedded devices are limited versions like you would find on a regular desktop, do not have all of the options and may not be editable. Do not expect to be able to setup a regular FTP server. However, there might be some existing backup / file transfer tools already on the system.
