    Can't Login with Putty (Shell nor Telnet)

    My Device is the WL-700ge
    Firmware: Custom ASUS 1.0.7.8

    I want too log in via SSH but can't
    Cant even login thru Telnet I get disconnected once user and pass is entered.

    Here is my staus log

    Mar 9 16:20:10 portmap[1720]: user rpc not found, reverting to user bin
    Mar 9 16:20:11 rpc.statd[1731]: Version 1.0.5 Starting
    Mar 9 16:20:11 rpc.statd[1731]: statd running as root. chown /var/lib/nfs/sm to choose different user
    Mar 9 16:20:14 ddns update: no update needed at this time
    Mar 9 16:21:59 dropbear[1440]: user 'admin' has invalid shell, rejected
    Mar 9 16:22:00 dropbear[1440]: user 'admin' has invalid shell, rejected
    Mar 9 16:22:01 dropbear[1440]: exit before auth (user 'admin', 10 fails): Max auth tries reached - user 'admin' from 192.168.1.5:2275

    Have you done anything to the box after installing the custom firmware? I suspect you're running an older rc.local that doesn't properly modify the passwd file.

    To temporarily get into the box, make sure you flash the xxx_02 or later nas file and press and hold the copy button when the ready light blinks (three times) until it remains on steady. This will bypass any customizations and force the firmware default startup scripts which should work for you.

    - K.C.

    Hey KC

    No I have not done anything since I installed the WL700gE_kc_1078_02.nas firmware lastnight.

    How does one check if the rclocal is older or not and how do you update it?

    in other words what things should I look at?

    OK Update I did what You suggested and I am able to log in via Shell... must I always do that? What do I do now?
