I was looking everywhere for this user manual online and it seems no one has it, so here is a link to my hosting of it.

Links edited with higher resolution versions after Alessandro comments below.
Links edited again due to someone externally sharing my links (300-400MB per day of downloads), please play fair or I’ll have to remove these files.


QNAP USB Serial Adaptor

28 Nov

Here’s something I’ve just worked out that is cool.

The QNAP NAS’s can have a USB to serial adaptor connected to them and you can SSH into the system and access the client device through the QNAP by issuing the command
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 9600

This has been a huge help as my Windows system always crashes when using the same exactly adapter.

Next thing you’ll want to know is how to exit it, that is
Ctrl+A then Ctrl+\

Handy to know for me hopefully it is for you too.
