It's always a good idea to include enough context so someone else knows what you are talking about. Firmware version and Web-If versions would be a good start (I know you added the latter later), as would the main Page that you are on. A picture can often be worth a thousand words as well.Anyone noticed that the button to enable / disable Telnet does not seem to work properly? Would be good in any case to change the Disable Telnet options to yes / no as opposed to on & off. Non urgent, but just happened to notice some odd behavior on that button.
Both these things are inelegant. I agree that you cannot pose a question like "Disable telnet server?" and have the answers as "On" or "Off". It just doesn't make sense. Either the answers need changing or the question does. Probably the latter, for consistency with the "Settings" page in the Web-IF which just uses "HTTPS web server?"In my original post I'd mentioned that this is not a major issue as it does indeed toggle Telnet, so more for info and that 'yes / no' might be more straightforward than 'on/off'
It /is/ referring to the telnet server in flash. The dropbear-ssh package provides SSH access to the box and adds an option to disable the default telnet server to the settings page. It was requested at some point but most people probably don't use it. As xyz321 says, it can complicate recovery, although there are some things built-in to help if anyone gets into that situation.In any case, what telnet (should be Telnet IMHO) server is it referring to? I thought this was built into the flash image now, so is it that or something else?
Yes, you just need to create the directory '/mod/.ssh' and then create the file 'authorized_keys' in that directory containing the public key (or a list of public keys) which is/are allowed to access the Humax.I'm wondering if it's possible to have certificate / public key based access instead of password based access. For me, remote access via the Internet is needed.
