NAS How To

The Web interface

I should also mention that the configuration can also be changed from a web browser. But to do this, you'll still have to initially change the ".ini" file to allow it. Close to the top of the file you'll see a variable called "enableweb". If you set this to "2", you'll be able to re-configure the server using a web interface.

If you want to try this out , change the enableweb and then restart the server as specified previously, except add an ampersand to the command in order to start it in the background, i.e:

./mediaserver&

Next look into the Twonkyvison created ".html" file that's in our Media directory. In this file, you'll find a URL that points to the configuration server. The port in the URL can change from run to run, but mine looked like so:

http://192.168.1.70:9000/configpage/index.htm

Enter the URL into your browser and you should see something like Figure 1. Now you should be able to change most of the settings that appear in the ".ini" file. After you're satisfied with the configuration, enter "fg" from the command prompt to bring the server back into the foreground. Then type <ctrl>c once again to shut it down.
