Cannot access Custom Firmware from PC

Hi all

Was working fine yesterday but I did some 'tidying up' of Services and may have gone too far.

Do I need to reinstall or is there another way?

Thanks for your help.

If Telnet is still working, then running service from the command line might be a good plsce to start, you should find mongoose running i.e.
Code:
Humax HDR-Fox T2 (humax) 1.02.32/2.16
 
humax# service
 
Name                Installed  Autostart  Running
----                ---------  ---------  -------
mediatomb            No        No        No
dropbear            No        No        No
transmission        Yes        No        No
samba                No        No        No
nfs                  No        No        No
cifs                No        No        No
mongoose            Yes        Yes        Yes
betaftpd            Yes        Yes        Yes
 
Syntax:
        service start <service>
        service stop <service>
        service auto <service>          (toggles autostart)

Thanks Ezra Pound.

Now ok.

Made note to self ' mongoose must be set to auto start'

I do use betaftpd some times but do not auto start . Does it use up much resource to run?

If not I could also auto start it.

betaftpd is pretty low down the list of resources , I would allow autostart
