    Hi,

    Recently got the TP, really like it, trying to do more so I downloaded preware and followed tips and instructions from this forum and made good progress, looking for some help from experts here on a few issues.

    1. Xterm in Xecutah : everything works but the text is so small, anyway to change text size?

    2. Is there a way to SSH to TP using Putty from a XP PC through wireless LAN? If so, what is the config setup for Putty, I saw article about having to USB connect TP to PC and run "putty -P 10022 root@localhost" with TP Dev mode enabled, I tried doing that with the Putty in XP but did not work. Maybe I did not configure Putty properly (If this works, then I do not need to use the small text Xterm from Xecutah :-)

    3. I wrote a script to mount home NAS drive and place it in a folder /media/internal/scripts, but no matter what I do, it will not execute (tried different ways - ./nas.sh, sh nas.sh etc), kept giving me error indicating /media/internal/nas/share does not exist when in fact it does, however, if I run the same command manually from xterm, works like a charm and I have full access to all my files in NAS drive using internalz Pro

    Here is the nas.sh script:

    #!/bin/sh

    mount -t cifs -o username=name,password=12345 //192.168.1.99/myshare /media/internal/nas/share

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I'd also like to know about Putty. Worked fine with Pre - and Pre 2. Tried my current putty setup but that didn't seem to work.

    I will be happy to use any SSH client on XP PC to access TP, does not have to be Putty. So I guess the main question is, can I SSH to TP from a XP PC without physically connecting the TP to XP PC USB but instead, through wireless LAN? Thanks

    I am ok if I can connect either wireless or via USB.

    Might have better luck with posting this under HP TouchPad Homebrew forum. I got help with xterm/OpenSSH over there.

    Take a look at this thread:
    http://forums.precentral.net/hp-touc...rk-shares.html

    I'm successfully able to SSH using Putty following that thread above. But I cann't get my TP to automount my Windows drive eventhough my "fstab" settings are correct. I can mount manually by running "mount -a".

    With SSH and WinScp, now I don't have to use the USB cable at all to tranfer files between the TP and Windows 7. I'm kind of disappointed that I can't charge the TP with the USB cable via a USB port though.. but that's a different topic.

    Hi

    I am using Mintty+Winscp(of Filezilla, Far Manager) +SSH to connect and upload-download to my TP. You have to have working SSH server on your TP.

    Just thought I post my findings to close this thread.

    1. Still could not find a way to increase text size in Xecutah/Xterm, but I will not be using it often anymore because I can Putty/SSH into TP wirelessly from any PC on the same LAN (read on...)

    2. I followed instructions in this link Application:OpenSSH - WebOS Internals (using "Generate Keys from webOS Method"), I am now able to use Putty on any of my home PC and SSH into TP wirelessly, works great!!.

    3. Turned out there is nothing wrong (command syntax wise) with my script mounting the nas drive, once I had Putty running, I edited the file with "vi" and noticed there are extraneous characters at the end of each line, I suspect it was generated by the built-in text editor in "internalz Pro" since the file was originally created by it. Once I removed the extraneous characters, the script worked like a charm. I can now mount/unmount my nas drives and access files easily without having to automount anything.

    In addition, I also loaded Touch player, with the nas shared folders mounted, I can play most of my home video directly from my nas folder except the MTS files created by new Sony HD camcorder. I tried using Kalemsoft MP but could not see the nas folders, read an article about creating a sandbox but may break the USB link so I did not pursue it, will wait for future update.

    Thanks for the replies.
