Installing fun plug and a rsync daemon on a DNS-320 NAS
The rsync daemon can be enabled on the DNS-320 by using Fun_plug. This offers a faster method of performing backups than the built in SMB, FTP or AFP.
First download the fun_plug installer to your local machine.
Extract the archive and place the
fun_plug executable and
fun_plug.tgz files in to the root of the
Volume_1 drive on the NAS box.
Create a new user via the NAS's web interface if needed for the rsync/ssh access.
Restart using the web interface.
Connect to the NAS via telnet:
Enable SSH and rsyncd:
chmod +x /ffp/start/sshd.sh /ffp/start/rsyncd.sh
Set the password for root user:
Test ssh by connecting to the NAS with above password as root:
chmod -x /ffp/start/telnetd.sh
Kill the current telnet process:
Create rsyncd config:
# more /ffp/etc/rsyncd.conf uid = nobody gid = nobody max connections = 4 use chroot = yes #Use no spaces by the "=" on the line below pid file=/var/run/rsyncd.pid [Backups] path = /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Bob/rsync comment = Backups read only = false uid = youruser gid = yourgroup
Create module/share directory:
mkdir /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Bob/rsync chown nobody: /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Bob/rsync
Test rsyncd config by listing available shares on the NAS from your local machine:
