Installing and Running Ajenti on ReadyNAS RN102

Arpan Jain 8 years ago updated by Eugene Pankov (Project coordinator) 8 years ago 5

I want to install Ajenti on Netgear ReadyNAS 102. I was able to successfully install it but I am not able to access it using URL I also don't see it running on port 8000 when i run netstat -tlnp command. I have tried restarting the service and its does it fine. 

Here is the install output

I have released a small update. Please let me know if it helps.
great - it works :) Thanks Eugene. Now I need to figure out how to setup OpenVPN using this so that all communication from my NAS is via VPN and not directly.
