I’ve been searching the community for information about the tftp method. When I find a link it end up in a 404 error.
I’ve got the .bat files OpentftpServerMT and the Dualserver along with the other files needed to setup the tftp. But there is no good writeup. I read that you need to set the PC ip address to 192.168.0.1. But that is my router address. Also my network has a different ip address group. Does that mean that I use a single network cable from the PC to the My Cloud? Is the process different for a gen1 vs gen2. What I would like to do is test a new kernel without having to mount the disk on a different system to install the file. I intend to test the process with the current software. Once I know that it works then I will try a new kernel. I’ve been able to build both a gen1 and a gen2 kernel. I would have thought that the file size of the new uImage would be that same as the current uImage. But it is different.
Any help would be appreciated.
PS while trying to test on a gen2 system. I tried reboot halt and poweroff. Each caused the device to reboot. But when it got the the press any key it didn’t stop. Also for some reason each time it didn’t display the WD in big block letters.
