This is the first of many posts to come about the Synology DiskStation DS411j I just received. As I figure things out, I’ll post them here for myself & others to use.
First order of business: logging in to the DS411j as root. Logging in is easy—you just enable the SSH service—but if you want to become root once you’re logged in, you can’t. You can’t
sudo or use
su. So instead, you have to SSH1 in as root. But how? This was far harder to figure out than it should have been, but once you know how, it’s ridiculously easy & obvious.
Instead of logging in this way:
Same password in both cases.
You’re not using telnet, are you? Please tell me you’re not using telnet & you’re only using SSH. Never use telnet! ↩
