    Update on this little how-to:
    I wrote a how-to on the twonky forums wiki page for the newest twonky server: http://www.twonkyforum.com/mediawiki...ters_-_Oleg_FW
    Easier and works better most likely




    Old how-to:

    first of all you need the wl-hdd version of the twonky installer: http://www.twonkyforum.com/unsupported/4.4.11/

    this package has some sort of install tool for windows that just does everything automaticly.

    now go to your router console and see what drivers are mounted
    df
    I recalled that twonky installed on /tmp/harddisk
    so if it's not mounted on your /opt partition you might want to do so:
    mkdir /tmp/harddisk
    mount /dev/discs/disc0/part2 /tmp/harddisk
    now on your windows machine start NASsetup from the twonky package.
    just fill in the IP of your router, username and password
    and select "install server" and "start server".
    click accept and now you should see the beast being installed

    when it's done you want to make sure it auto starts every time so we go to post-mount:
    vi /tmp/local/sbin/post-mount
    now add this line in the bottom of the post-mount.
    /opt/twonkyvision/twonkymedia &
    save it and flash save:
    flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable
    now just point your browser to http://asusip:9000 and you should see the twonky screen with media browsers and settings (where you can add folders to scan)

    There is possible to download two softwares from twonky:

    TwonkyMedia manager for Windows
    TwonkyMedia server

    Both of them are 30 day trials. I need only this server, is not necesarry to using manager, am I right?

    Is there any possibility to use it 30 days, uninstall and install again and continue using?

    Or there is possibility to buy a licence for this. Till end of the year it is for 10 euro but licence is for version 5.x Will it be working with this 4.4.11?

    you don't need the manager, you can play files from the server with windows media player (library > PVconnect)

    as far as I know you need to buy a license, but you can try it out for 30 days before you decide. For me the only downside is that it doesn't play subtitle files, the rest is just amazing

    about the license, it says this on the download page:
    NAS Versions
    These versions are provided as an unsupported version of TwonkyMedia as is.
    They can be activated with a TwonkyMedia server (version 4 and 5) or TwonkyMedia manager license key.
    that probably answers your question

    Thumbs up For the ones who are interested

    Seems like twonky media released a brand new twonky server, even for our asus routers

    http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.1-RC3/
    as usual, download the Asus WL-HDD2.5 one.

    I would stick to version 4 as this works out of the box. The later versions don't work or need fiddeling.

    Yes, the twonky installer is based on alternative firmware like oleg (it says so in the readme).
    download: http://code.google.com/p/wl500g/downloads/list
    and the great wengi how-to for setting stuff up: http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=10307
    then this how-to should be pretty straightforward

    Thanks for the info

    I am running now the oleg firmware, but still having problem to setup my USB harddrive to /tmp/harddisk

    look at my setup

    [admin@WL-0023545F7BF1 root]$ mount /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /tmp/harddisk
    [admin@WL-0023545F7BF1 root]$ df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root 3072 3072 0 100% /
    tmpfs 15028 304 14724 2% /tmp
    /dev/discs/disc0/part1
    244992064 16816 244975248 0% /tmp/mnt/disc0_1

    I do mount it to tmp/harddisk but when at df it return me that my HD is set to

    /tmp/mnt/disc0_1

    Also did I have to let the script init.sh in the subdir /tmp/harddisk or it need to be place at somewhere else ?

    and is the script need to be run in the USB Application - FTP Server
    Limits tab
    under Initial Script as "init.sh"

    Thanks
