Installing basic network tools in QNAP1 minute to read
I was needing to check the IP addresses of some of my local network gadgets, more specifically the Airport Express IP address. So I just logged in into my NAS, using SSH, and fired the
arp -a command and I got a
-sh: arp: command not found reply. Not happy.
Gladly you can install these basic tools with
ipkg and so I did:
ipkg install net-tools. You will get all the basic network tools, and imho really important tools, if you don't have already:
update-alternatives: Linking //opt/bin/hostname to /opt/bin/net-tools-hostname update-alternatives: Linking //opt/bin/ifconfig to /opt/bin/net-tools-ifconfig update-alternatives: Linking //opt/bin/netstat to /opt/bin/net-tools-netstat update-alternatives: Linking //opt/sbin/arp to /opt/sbin/net-tools-arp update-alternatives: Linking //opt/sbin/route to /opt/sbin/net-tools-route
So now I was able to get all the needed information, and I hope you can get it too!
