I will be getting a replacement drive since I cannot access Dashboard or even WD Quick View frequently.
Searching, I see that I must use the browser to access mybooklive/ui/ssh “within” Dashboard; not very clear & Dashboard doesn’t have anything for entry of the url. If the url is to be used in the browser, can’t it be done from the browser if one knows what the ipaddr is; or must the fact one is looking at the/a Dashboard page. And is this done prior to the install procedure of the WDQuickView? Or after the install?
I’ve looked at the user manual & don’t see a place in the MBL settings for entry/activating the ssh & it looks like the hidden url is not available when Dashboard isn’t available. I can do a trial & error but don’t have the new drive yet & just would like to see a procedure that will provide info for reference.
I think that I did see an icon with the words to “secure” the drive & thought that it meant as advice to be used somewhere in the setup of the settings of the drive. However, the only thing I encountered is to have a password for the “owner”.
Oh yeah, aside from not getting into Dashboard, the led is a flashing/blinking geen light which supposedly indicates that the drive is busy in reading/writing; then the reset in the back don’t reset anything, at least not the password for login which just returns the same page to enter the password for logging; if left blank it say invalid password.
Haven’t seen any ideas on how the WD QuickView & Dashboard got mangled…Definitely need an upgrade that make Quickview more stable & not disappear from the network devices that use the MBL as a media server.
