OK.  I've just read what your actual problem is.  You can't connect *INTO* the plug from an external address.  I thought you couldn't connect *out to* an external address *from* the plug.
So, a few questions:
  • Have you ever connected in to any other home device?
  • What is the "transmission web ui" you tried connecting to?

Total guess - with multiple devices added the device id of the USB drive is different to when it's on its own?

FWIW:  My connector seemed to be slightly lose, so I just bit it (the mini-USB connector on the cable) to bend the top flange down slightly.,  It then fitted snugly and I've had no problems at all.

Don't these error messages worry anyone?  They come from the lines that are running fw_setenv.  And the problem was a result of the environment vars not being set.,

Since I did this yesterday...

1. Get a USB Wifi dongle  (something with a rtl8187 chipset would be good).
2. apt-get install wireless-tools
3. edit /etc/network/interfaces and add something like:

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
  address 192.168.1.51
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  broadcast 192.168.1.255
  gateway 192.168.1.1
  wireless-essid <your-network-SSID.
  wireless-key restricted 1 <your-WEP-key>
  wireless-defaultkey 1
#  wireless-mode Managed
  wireless-channel auto


If you are using WPA rather than WEP you'll have to do something different - perhaps someone else has done that?

Does this mean that i should do nothing since my router used dhcp?
If it isn't working you should do something.  What does:
  netstat -rn
show?

You need to set up a default route.  From the command line run:

Quote
route add default gw IP-addr-of-router
and see whether that helps.  I don't (yet) know how to get this done automatically at boot time with a hardwired IP address.  Mind you - DHCP should set it...

One favor from your guys with SheevaPlug, does ethtool work on SheevaPlug?
Looks like it.  This is with the alpha6 update wit the 2.6.30-rc6 kernel.

I can only get my transfer speed in Samba to 10Mb ( I have already set socket option = TCP_NODELAY). I wonder if anyone have been able to bring it up to 20 to 25Mb.
10MB/s (I presume) is what you will get through a 100Mb/s network link.  The Plug has 1 Gb/s port, but what about the router you plug it into?  If that (or the Windows client system) is only 100Mb/s then you can't expect, nor get, > 10MB/s via Samba.

To answer my own problem.
I remembered I also had a spare 1GB microSD card and using that with an SD adaptor and an SD->USB adaptor seems to have done the trick.
Not sure what the issue was with the other USB stick.  It mounts OK now that the system is running.

One problem I do have now is that eth0 only seems to want to run IPv6, which doesn't help me much with an IPv4 router.  Is there a link somewhere to a useful "How to configure Ubuntu" page?  And not "help.ubuntu.com", which seems to assume you are using a GUI - I need a description of which config files are where.

Hi,

I reloaded my alpha-6 installer on my Linux host.  I'm using a 3rd USB stick.  The plug does not seem to like it either.

See: "** Unable to use usb 0:1 for fatload **"
I have the same problem today.  I've created a "FAT32" filesystem on the first (only) partition of a 4GB PNY USB memory stick.  This shows up under lsusb as:
Bus 001 Device 024: ID 090c:1000 Feiya Technology Corp. Flash Drive

I've also tried a 512MB IBM microDrive through a powered hub.  That produced slightly different output when scanning for storage devices:
USB:   scanning bus for devices... 3 USB Device(s) found
       scanning bus for storage devices... T T T T Device NOT ready
   Request Sense returned 00 00 00
1 Storage Device(s) found
Device NOT ready
   Request Sense returned 00 00 00
** Can't read from device 0 **

** Unable to use usb 0:1 for fatload **
Device NOT ready
   Request Sense returned 00 00 00
** Can't read from device 0 **

** Unable to use usb 0:1 for fatload **
Any further suggestions?

I don't have mine yet (Fedex arrived with it today, but I wasn't in, so almost there).  But for a similar situation (an Asus wl500gx) I use rsync over a network to a USB drive on a PC (which is then backed up there, as well).

@Mindbender, could you post an MD5 for the file?
Thanks
There's one here, which is what I got from my download:

Somewhere around there's a driver for the LED(s).  If you set this to "on" or "heartbeat" presumably it would go off on shutdown?

Don't you already know the services running on your network?
