Wow. I can’t believe how easy it is to turn on the ssh server feature on the ReadyNAS Duo. I thought I had to use some backdoor scripts in order to do so. Thanks to the “plug-in” architecture of the ReadyNas Duo, new features/technologies can be added to the device with just a few clicks.
The ReadyNas community has got some addons which you can enable SSH and root access to the SSH. Check out ToggleSSH and EnableRootSSH from the addons page. Installing these addons are simple, just go to your ReadyNAS’s administration page. Go to System -> Update -> Local. Upload the bin file and follow the on screen instructions.
