I have enough rusty experience to have foolishly gotten myself in irretrievable trouble. OK, I said it (whew).
I was trying to setup DNLA sharing from my MediaShare drive to my BluRay. It would notice SERVERNAME.twonkymedia.myverbatim.com in the server listing, yet not show any files even they were shared out in MediaShare's web interface for DNLA. I was able to access http://serverIP:9000/config, Twonky, and changed update databases dynamically, or on demand, and I turned on debug logging. Yes, kringe.
Needless to say, after a day and a half of hearing the disk rattling to no end, I took a look and I was down to 20 gb of free space. In the time I tried to look into where the space went, dupes? Logs?, I had lost the remaining 125 gb free space I had prior to any tweeks.
I then attempted to gain Root access so as to see more than I could via the web-interface and was faced with certificate errors: "Authenticity of host ...cant be established, RSA key fingerprint is ... connect y/n. I said Yes on my PowerBook, 10.5, said the server was permanently added to trusted devices (?). Granted there are some security risks, this machine is primarily a convenient 12" terminal, no loss if I needed to reformat. Received the same error on iMac 2010 and did not go further.
I have a lot of data on this drive and would like a way to access it. It spans three libraries that I know of. Is there a way to view the entire drive? How can I ensure I am actually viewing my device and it is not cloaked by a remote malware headache.
If you finish laughing at me and feel you could assist in any way it would be appreciated . I have not done a whole lot in UNIX since about 2005 but used to know my way around. Just need some refreshers.
