Installation of the Conceptronic fun_plug on the Conceptronic CH3HNAS

Since a while the Conceptronic CH3HNAS has been around which – unfortunately – is not compatible with the Fonz’ fun_plug due to a different CPU. Conceptronic themselves provides a fun_plug package which solves that issue. If you don’t know what the fun_plug is, then read the introduction of this article until including “Technical synopsis” for further explanation. Here is how the Conceptronic fun_plug is installed on the CH3HNAS:

  • Download the package from Conceptronic: Download (Mirror by Uli)
  • Extract the package on your local harddrive
  • Navigate to folder “Funplug” and copy the files “fun_plug” and “fun_plug.tgz
  • Navigate to the “Public”-Folder on your CH3HNAS and paste these two files there
  • Then login to the Webpanel of your NAS and go to “Tools” -> “System” -> “Restart” to reboot your device
  • After the reboot, the CH3HNAS will discover the fun_plug and install it on the harddrive. Be patient as it takes a while to install the fun_plug
  • After a while the fun_plug.tgz will disappear and a folder called “funplug” will appear instead.
  • A Telnet-Server is now available on Port 23 on your CH3HNAS

That’s it!
