Shell Access Patches

ToggleSSH – Toggles access via SSH, useful for NETGEAR support to remotely access your box to look at or fix problems that requires deeper understanding. SSH access is disabled by default.

EnableRootSSH – With the EnableRootSSH add-on, you can now remote login to the ReadyNAS RAIDiator shell as a root user. Initial password for root will be the same as the current FrontView admin password. Please keep in mind that NETGEAR may deny support if you’ve enabled root access.
