Hi folks. I was dissatisfied with the software that was delivered with my Buffalo LiveStation Mini that controls the power state (auto on/off). So I wrote my own piece of software and want to offer it for free to any other Buffalo users. I guess it works with all types of buffalo NAS that support the power control feature.
The software can be downloaded at http://sourceforge.net/projects/nascontrol
I'd be glad if you tell me your experience (best on sourceforge) with it or at least with which device it works and with which not. You are also invited to leave some statements or feature requests or whatever on sourceforge.net.
Advantages in comparsion with the software delivered by Buffalo:
- Does not need any administrator permissions wheter for running it nor for installing it. This is important to be able to run it on a notebook of your company.
- Only running if you want it to run (not a windows service)
- No installation required (copy & paste deployment)
- Easy control if the NAS shall turn on or off
- Supports scripting
P.S. Excuse my lame english
