View Full Version : Problems accessing my Networked storage.

Hi, I have a DNS-323 (network ready HDD enclosure) and a few years back it was working. I can't recall what problems I had (if any). But I remember doing a few rsync-backups and accessing it via the Dolphin browser. Worked fine.

Now, I can see the IP if I use "arp." But I can't ping it, can't ssh to it, can't seem to access it in any way whatsoever.

Arp provides the following: (incomplete) eth0

Does anyone know what I need to do to start troubleshooting? I can ssh from any of my computers to each other or to the outside world so I don't think it's a firewall issue. Is it perhaps a router issue? (I have a Linksys.)

What causes the "incomplete" to show up -- I sometimes see that when other machines are using the network.

Any help would be fantastic. I'd like to start using this storage again. Thanks so much!

Not sure what the problem is, but It looks like it is something in the

well, the DNS323 is basically a linux box running busybox and samba.

So you would mount your network drive the same as any other samba share.

Ah, the missing link was -- literally -- a missing link. Turns out the eth cable had gone faulty somehow. Plugged a new one in and everything was fine.
