Installation of Twonky Server 7 on NAS-devices

After a few requests i’ve now tried to install Twonky Server 7 on the NAS_Devices and i can tell you that it works. The following article describes the installation. Before you proceed please check here if Version 7.11-Special is still the current version. If not, please add a comment below.

This tutorial requires an installed fun_plug!

Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-323 and Conceptronic CH3SNAS

Many people asked me to compile various packages over the last few years. Sometimes i was able to help and sometimes (in rare occasions) i had to reject a request when it was impossible to fulfill it. Then i often told the requestor to install optware which originated from the NSLU2-Project and provides many addition packages. I didn’t have experienc on this, so i had to leave them in the dark. Until recently. Continue reading Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-323 and Conceptronic CH3SNAS

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!

Update of Twonkymedia Server 6 on the Conceptronic CH3MNAS, D-Link DNS-320,DNS-321,DNS-325 and DNS-343

This tutorial is deprecated, please use the tutorial for the current version.

Since a while there is a new version of the Twonkymedia Server 6 available. Many readers asked me how to update to this version without loosing the configuration of the already installed version. This article describes the update for the following devices:

  • Conceptronic CH3MNAS
  • D-Link DNS-320
  • D-Link DNS-321
  • D-Link DNS-325
  • D-Link DNS-343

For other devices, please follow this article. If you are searching for the article regarding the initial installation (not the update), please look here for this.
