Enable Buffalo LinkStation 421e SFTP

Kind of as an update to my Gain SSH access to the Buffalo LinkStation 421e article, I realized SFTP support wasn't setup correctly. In order to do this, I had to:

  • SSH into the LinkStation. If you haven't enabled SSH access, here's how.
  • vi /etc/sshd_config
  • On the line that starts with Subsystem, replace /usr/local/libexec/sftp-server with /usr/lib/sftp-server.
  • Save and quit vi.
  • Run: /etc/init.d/ restart
  • That's it.

  1. In a windows system, how do you convert the commands
    using the acp commander GUI so my Linkstation LS421DE can be set up to run SFTP correctly? followed the prceedure for enabling SSH, but linkstation refuses connection because no SFTP.
