been here before, you'll need to specify the path of the sftp but its pointless for me personally.. because you won't be able to upload content just *read*
I recommend you follow the great guide for opening webdav - http://forums.seagate.com/t5/GoFlex-Satellite/WebD
Just tested with goodreader, it can read/write etc but the issue is with the time on the GFS device so syncing with gfs is not recommended.

Tried ECPlayer.. doesn't display anything when i attempt to connect to the GFS samaba, however when i connect to a windows SMB share i can see a listing of all the files (but i haven't been able to play content directly from the network)
Overally i was quite disappointed with the app for streaming via samba
anyone else had a similar experience?

Excellent - worked first time and I can now read and write to my disk from Windows Explorer
However this only seems to work when I connect to the Seagate's WiFi from my laptop (i.e. I connect get a 172.25.0.x address on my laptop and use 172.25.0.1 to connect to; if I connect the Seagate to my WiFi (whereupon it gets allocated an address of say 192.168.1.5 and my laptop is connected to 192.168.1.4) I cannot access the drive.
Is there any way to bind SMB to the client address (192.168.95.4 in my example above)?

Works the first time - booting up is now so much faster; and even the web interface and the Android app is 'snappier'. If for whatever reason i want to revert to the factory settings, i'm guessing i just need to reinstall the latest firmware?
BTW, am using this with a RIM Playbook, where the android app has been converted / packaged into a .bar file that i sideloaded onto the playbook. Pretty cool :-)

Hi, I'll try to install Samba on my new Segate Go Flex Satellite (i've just bought it), but first, I have a couple of questions:
1. How can I know what version of Firmware I have with the device right out of the box without having to install anything? I want to have the latest before I install the Samba server.
2. I've downloaded "GoFlex Satellite SAMBA.zip" from the second post and in the instructions they say to use commands like "tar" or "ln" or "vi", I'm using Windows XP, and I plan to use telnet from the window's command prompt (cmd), so, are this commands available? From my very poor knowledge of Linux, they sound Linux commands to me. Do I have to install something to have those available in windows?
3. If, I want to have my drive back to factory settings, may I reinstall the latest firmware?
Thanks in advance

1. I think there is a line in the Settings that indicates the installed firmware version.
2. Once you use telnet to get to your Satellite, the linux commands become available as it runs linux. You can't do this directly in Windows as the Satellite must be running to access where the firmware is. That filesystem is not available from the USB port.
3. You can (almost) always restore the firmware by copying the .bin file onto the drive from your computer.

Thank you Harry, very much!. So, from your 2nd answer, I assume that I have to connect to the Satellite thru wifi connection instead of USB connection, right? I thought that I could do it using a USB connection, thanks for the clarification.
