OpenLink is our effort to provide firmware which “opens” your LinkStation, thus providing full access to the LinkStation. The OpenLink firmware is built upon the most recent official LinkStation firmware release. It retains all the stock capabilities of the official LinkStation firmware while adding utelnetd, dropbear, busybox, and several other binaries and libraries. You may download the latest release from the downloads area. OpenLink installs via the official LinkStation firmware updater, eliminating any need to open the LinkStation (see General/FirmwareFlash). While OpenLink has been tested to function properly, it is still considered a beta release. Please make sure to read fully the included documentation.
Utelnetd, Dropbear, Busybox? Utelnetd and Dropbear are extremely small telnet and SSH daemons, respectively. Busybox is an extremely small program which provides many core utilitiy functions, such as dd and wget. They are specially designed for embedded systems such as the LinkStation
IPKG is the package management system used in OpenLink firmware. This is something similar to other Package Management Systems in big distributions like debian or gentoo (Portage) where you can easily install additional software.
The development tools are specifically designed to be used on LinkStations with OpenLink firmware. You may download the latest version from the downloads area.
