Ok, I'm going to have to do some searching as I must be missing something.

I have done the factory reset and that gives me username - admin and password - password
but when I have entered those in telnet and then type /etc/melco/info it just tells me access is denied.

You have to "switch" to user root, using "su".
You can NOT login as root via telnet, but you can via ssh.
If you stay with telnet, use "su" and then the password of root
to "switch" to user root. Then you should be able to change the
content of /etc/melco/info.

Hi Kenatonline, Thanks for the reply. I guess what you're is suggesting is basic stuff but I'm pretty much a noob. Is there any chance you could show me what I need to type after logging in with admin & password.

type: su
then it promts for the password again. Type: password
you should now have root access as super user.

You have not scrolled to the end of the document.
According to your quoted output, you saw only 2 percent of the file
on that one screen.
Try to get a nice introduction to "vi", because it is a little beast. ;-)

try

Code:
ssh root@192.168.1.11


Password is still 'password' unless you have changed it. (which you should as soon as you get this up and running).

Using telnet I just tried root and password, it worked. Is there anything else I need to do before start the nzbget guide. Are using telnet?.

I'm going away tonight for a long weekend but going to take my netbook and buffalo with me.
wife will love me! :shock:


This is what I get when entering the first line in the guide. Do I need optware of something?.

login as: root
root@192.168.1.11's password:

Spot on. You need to get that thing bootstrapped. There are guides around.

Ok, good. Thanks to you and the other guys for helping me out with this. Hopefully I'll manage the rest on my own.

Cheers Gav
