Additional details for others. After running the above command to re-enable telnet access, you will need to go into the Linkstation's web page, onto the network page, and re-enable DHCP to be able access the net from your linkstation.

That does the trick. Thank you!

I've been listeninig to Georg over in the Pro/Live forum and finally managed to get sshd running on my Quad. Here's what I did:

Ran acp_commander like so
java -jar acp_commander.jar -pw <admin password> -t <quad's IP address> -ip <quad's IP address> -o

(yes, <admin password> is the password you defined for the admin user in the web interface.)

This started up telnet and cleared root's password so I could login via telnet. Don't ask me why but the only way I could get telnet started was by doing it this way and specifying the -ip parameter. Note that I didn't set my Quad's IP address to a NEW IP, I just set it to what it already was but that was the magic. Next, I had to take root out of /etc/ftpusers because that file is referenced in /etc/pam.d/sshd and controls who can login via ssh. I also had to edit /etc/sshd_config because the original specified that the hostkey comes from /etc/apache/server.key which hasn't been created. Oddly, /etc/init.d/sshd.sh creates /etc/{ssh_host_key,ssh_host_rsa_key,ssh_host_dsa_key} if they don't exist. I added sshd.sh to the step3 startup in rcS, restarted the Linkstation and sshd came up fine. I just verified everything's working by logging in via ssh.

Oh, and since acp_commander cleared root's password, I defined a new one. :D

Again, note that this is for Quad firmware 1.10.

Very old post I know (nearly 5 years), but I was referred here by http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Ope ... 3E.3D_1.10 and I had similar problems so thought it was worth noting this for others.

My firmware is v1.65 and it is a Buffalo LinkStation Pro Quad LSVW-230 and I had similar problems with getting "connection refused" when trying to ssh to the NAS after changing the password. Version of the apc_commander.jar is v0.4.1 (beta).

I eventually found that root access was disabled in the sshd config on the box and I had to apply some workarounds to change it.

Here is what I did:

# Changing the password of the root account (using the "set IP" workaround)
java -jar acp_commander.jar -pw AdminPassword -t -ip -c "(echo RootPassword;echo RootPassword)|/bin/passwd"

# Change PermitRootLogin setting from no to yes in /etc/sshd_config
java -jar acp_commander.jar -pw AdminPassword -t -ip -c "sed -i 's/PermitRootLogin no/PermitRootLogin yes/' /etc/sshd_config"

# SSHing to the NAS (not entirely sure what the first three password requests are for, the root@<IP> is the one we are after)
$ ssh root@
root@'s password:
