Hi to all
I'm new here.
I'm trying to install openwrt using this guide, but the nas doesn't work. I use two WD red as hard disk (the original disk, 2TB each one)
I have installed the downloaded image on the second disk (slot B), leaving empty the disk in the slot A.
If I turn on the nas, it starts, and the led become green. Looking into my rooter, the nas obtain an IP, but it results unpingable.
Could someone help me?
Hm, I think I know what's going on here and also why this could be confusing.
The MBL (duo) is working as a router out-of-the-box with the OpenWrt Image... Because well, OpenWrt is geared towards routers. Your PC would need to fetch a IP from it, but you could also just assign a static ip somewhere in the 192.168.1.0/24 area and ssh into 192.168.1.1.... That is, if your real router or some other network device is sitting on that address on your network already, if that's the case: well you could just plug your PC directly into the MBL and do the setup from there.
Problem here is that unlike the MBL's full dhcpclient, the busybox variant OpenWrt uses does not (and will not) implement any autoip. Instead Busybox has already a different applet for that: zcip. Which does IPv4LL, but badly since the MBL would only need it as a fallback in case it is connected to just a device (like PC) that does not have a running dhcpd server.
