    That depends completely on how your NAS system is configured. Is it listening on the SSH port? Is it listening on any port used for user communication (telnet, http, ....)? When it isn't you can not connect to it from any others ystem whatsoever. So look in the documentation of the NAS system how it can be managed remotely.

    Well i can connect with my opera browser-throw suse,win and android- that means http and webdav connection
    with the NFS system(mounted by suse) and i dont have yet try the samba system,
    Last time i was trying with the Grsync gui application ,but probably i dont know the default gate of rsync,well i would be happy if i could reach the debian throw a terminal maybe ...mounting the system and make a chroot after (just crazy but i am stuck)
    The only thing about remote connection that i found on the manual it has to do with win-apple appllications, facilities for files transfer

    Well, the best thing is to google for your model number of that nas
    device, trying to find a forum of its users. Some of these things get a
    hacker crowd around, if the device is interesting enough, and they will
    know and probably publish how to get access to it.

    Sometimes the facilities provided by the manufacturer are way too
    limited, so the first step they attempt is to create an alternative
    firmware. Once that is installed, you can do more things with the
    device. If that is impossible, they probably discard the device as piece
    of ****.

    I do not want to discourage you. But when you bought the device yourself, imho, you should have informed yourself about it's possbilities to be managed remote beforehand.

    That is always good advice.

    I do not know the particulars of that particular NAS device; however, Netgear
    uses Linux as the OS in a lot of its devices, thus it is likely that there will
    be remote access for it. As NAS seems to be aimed at the Windows market, it will
    probably be a web interface. Try https://<IP Address of the NAS device>. The
    user name will be "admin". The default password is "password", but that should
    have been changed.

    You don't typically know those details beforehand.

    For instance, years ago I bought a digital TV recorder, cheap (on sale,
    I think is the word), and it was a month or two later that I started
    doing things on it that I did not dream, not even think about before.

    The original creators forgot to close the telnet port used for testing
    during design. The first upgrade they created closed it.

    But that was enough for a community of hackers to start and do wonders
    with it.


    I wish I could see in the technical specifications of the devices I buy:
    "YES! You can ssh in and do whatever you like! We'll give you a hacker
    manual and tools! Be our guest!"

    They'd probably be swarmed...

    After a little time:
    THE FACTS: the device its a RN102 running debian(version????) on an arm cpu.
    I found no help until now on the debian forum,and no help at all at the netgear forums

    THE COMMENTS: practically the netgear community has not (yet?) developed add-ons for arm ,and anyway the community its too poor.

    I am just trying to install a mail server,IREDMAIL exists at the company pool but does not working !!!!!!!!!!! (and its not my stupidity). I would be happy if i could gain access to
    the shell (and knowing the version of debian???!!!)

    NOVEL its a saint compared to NETGEAR
