well for the new people telnet is this according to wikipedia

 Telnet (teletype network) is a network protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a
 bidirectional interactive communications facility. Typically, telnet provides access to a command-line 
 interface on a remote host via a virtual terminal connection which consists of an 8-bit byte oriented 
 data connection over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). User data is interspersed in-band with 
 TELNET control information.

and in linux the manual description of the command "telnet" tell this:

 The telnet command is used for interactive communication with another host using the TELNET protocol. 
 It begins in command mode, where it prints a telnet prompt ("telnet> "). If telnet is invoked with a 
 host argument, it performs an open command implicitly

let's start

my WDTV-live is in the direction, one way for obtain this information is see in your router also in the machine go to Settings>System setting>System information there is your Ip address or go to Network setting>Network setup.

then in linux you can type this: telnet well what the hell are we doing,we are trying to enter like the Administrator(root) or Super User then you will see something like this

pint0@debian:~$ telnet
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

WDTVLIVE-6f1ec login: root

NOTE:there is not a password the first time(press enter)

in windows xp go to star>run type "cmd" or go to start>all programs>accessories>Comand Pronpt

  • the command is telnet WTDV-live-ip and type root as login and press 'enter' in password

now we can change the password,you must type this in the terminal passwd and type two times your password. this is the output of that command

# passwd
Changing password for root
New password:
Bad password: too weak
Retype password:
Password for root changed by root

well done, now you have the root access and have a password,now you can use ssh access.

SSH Access

  Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged using a secure channel between two
  networked devices. Used primarily on GNU/Linux and Unix based systems to access shell accounts, SSH was designed
  as a replacement for Telnet and other insecure remote shells, which send information, notably passwords,
  in plaintext, rendering them susceptible to packet analysis. The encryption used by SSH provides confidentiality
  and integrity of data over an insecure network, such as the Internet.

In Linux

you can do this

  1. open a terminal,if you use gnome go to Applications>Accessories>Terminal
  2. type ssh root@your_ip or ssh your_ip -l root type your password and done

In Windows

you can do alot of things:

Using PuTTY

  • to enter you can use PuTTY a light program to connect to ssh an to others stuff(tunneling,etc,etc),here is the link to download
  • open putty and you will see something like this puty_imagen
  • write your ip address and click open then this will appears putty_imagen_2
  • click yes and login putty_imagen_3

well now you are connected to your WDTV-live machine

Using SSH Secure Shell

  • you can download from rapidshare or megaupload
  • the program look like this picture_ssh then click in quick connect
  • will appear this imagen "Host Name" is your ip_address and User Name is "root" then press connect
  • then in here press yes
  • if you see this congratulation you are in your WDTV-live machine
