okay… been using the droboFS for a while… love the simplicity…
i installed the Dropbear SSH app and have been able to login as root and change (and retain the changed) password.
now, having root access is a security issue, and even i don’t like maneuvering through the file system as root. [color=#FF0000]Has any one been able to ssh into their drobo as a user they created through the dashboard?[/color] I did some searching through the forums and noticed others have problems with accounts they created through root and those accounts being erased upon reboot.
secondly, if root access is the only way, [color=#FF0000]has any one been able to use the GUI to SSH into their drobo???[/color] what i mean is, using Ubuntu (or other distro), use the “Connect to Server” command, and connect to the file system as root? every time i try, my connection is dropped. looking at the drobo logs, it shows “root attempted, failed, tried another user, failed”. what does work, i can ssh as root through the terminal and connect fine. i can connect to a smb share and connect fine.
why i want this, basically just a secure way to connect and browse the files on my drobo. i don’t like using NFS cause any one can replicate my ip address and gain access to my drobo, as well, the connection is not secure. and using smb… SLOW and connection not secure. alternative ideas welcome as well!!!
