Please note I have a small amount of experience with Linux but I am a Windows person mainly.
Right, today I built myself a NAS out of junk (c2d), 4gb of RAM and a few desktop HDs that I had lying around. I threw together a bracket for the two drives and they fit in the case.
Right I then tried openmediavault and now Rockstor and I am having the same issue in the same place.
Both distros install but I cannot find the ip of the computer (nas) it is installed on using any of the usual Linux commands. Also when I go into my router and find the ip that is associated with the NAS and I try and navigate to it I get a “this site cannot be reached” error. I have disabled my Windows firewall and tried to ensure that Chrome is an exception. I have also tried accessing it on my phone. All to no avail.
Please help, I am sure this is something so simple yet I am failing.
