RE: Web browser access to the PCH from your PC
Hi All,

When connecting to the NMT from my pc
(eg http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8883/network.html)

I can see some text on the blue screen, but no images/graphics are shown (just crosses X)

What am i doing wrong ?

Regards,
Rene

You need to check your browser isnt blocking the images and that you have software/browser plugin that supports the image format.

I don't think a browser (like Firefox or IE) block theses images Dodgy
There is probably something else

RE: Web browser access to the PCH from your PC
As far as I was aware the majority of these pages aren't designed to viewed on a PC - you can get to the config pages, and indeed to the file browser pages, but everything except the BitTorrent pages is hard-coded to use 127.0.0.1 (ie the local device) for it's pictures, and more importantly the post-back locations - you'll note that if you press any buttons (as opposed to links) you end up looking at a 'page cannot be found' error, and the url it is looking at starts http://127.0.0.1:8883/...

You can work around the POST issues by replacing the IP with the external IP for your NMT (192.168.1.x or similar) but there's no quick fix for the images. That said you probably only want to be looking at this page in emergencies (like you've set the wrong display mode and can't see anything on the TV) so you can maybe live without images? The only other thing I use it for is adding new items to the web services list - faffing about replacing IPs is still easier than keying it in via remote!

the btpd pages are a bit cleverer and switch page style depending on whether you're viewing them 'locally' on the NMT or from another machine, which is why they 'work; on a PC, whereas the new clutch UI and nzbget stuff is pretty much designed to be *only* viewed from a remote PC.

Hope this helps to clear things up.

The first link for the start page, forwards me to this link:

http://localhost.drives:8883/HARD_DISK/?home=0

IS that normal? IT returns a 404
Also, the images will not load just red X's


Any answer to this message? i get the same answer from my browser

I can't get any of this stuff to work (and adjusting the IP address to point to the appropriate box).

Is there something I need to install?

I can't decipher what your problem might be, allow some details to accompany your post and others may know exactly the issue you might be having.

So I have two straight-up A-100's (no hard drives, stock installations).

The IP addresses are 192.168.2.101 and 102

Code:
http://192.168.2.101
"this webpage is not available"

Code:
http://192.168.2.101:8883/torrent/bt.cgi
nothing ... blank page

Code:
http://192.168.2.101:8077
webpage not available

Code:
http://192.168.2.101:8883/start.cgi
I get an HTTP redirect to
Code:
http://127.0.0.1:8883/smbclient.cgi?smb.cmd=mount&smb.opt=smb://STUFF/SANDBOX&smb.name=STUFF:SANDBOX&smb.user=&smb.passwd=

which gives "webpage not available"

The "Stuff/Sandbox" is my 2T NAS drive on *.2.103

Most any other page in the list gives a similar redirect to localhost and then nothing.

Do I need to have a hard drive installed on the A100 and some software installed on it?

It's voodoo.

None of the NMT applications will be available since they are not installed - you need a hard drive for that.

The torrent and usenet clients are examples of NMT applications.

In fact it is possible all these options require an installed hard drive - I have not tried this without one.

Media tank:A-100 & C-200
TV:Panasonic TH-50PY800MT (HDMI)
Audio:Logitech Z-5500 (Coaxial)

RE: Web browser access to the PCH from your PC
There you go. I was thinking, however, that you should still be able to see some of the setup pages without the internal hard drive, for instance

http://192.168.2.101:8883/preferences.htm
and
http://192.168.2.101:8883/display.html

You could try those out while you're waiting on a hard disk

georgema, changed home to equal 1 instead, i think that will work...
Could we add the links that don't require you to input the ip address as well?
