View Full Version : Linkstation v1.47

2005-06-06, 22:47
I'll apologize in advance if there was a better place to post this.

I just purchased a 250GB Linkstation with firmware 1.47 which apparently can't be used. I need v1.45 but Buffalo's site doesn't offer that version anymore.

Anyone know where I can find it?

I have searched the forums as well as google and yahoo's boards, but no luck so far.

Disclaimer: I'm a rookie at this stuff and I know just enough to get myself in trouble.

In searching for v1.45, I found a modified v1.47 that allows telnet access.

Here's the link:

Has anyone else tried this?

I suppose if it works we'll have the best of both worlds; the latest from Linkstation and a means for installing Slimserver.

One of the best pages on how to put slimserver on the Linkstation is at

There are links in this article to the yahoo group where you will be able to find a lot more information on using the linkstation and they should be able to help you get the correct version of the firware that you will need

You may already have noticed, but v 1.45 build 13 is available at the same website - go one file down from the modified v 1.47.

does anyone have experience if slimserver is working crisp on a linkstation, even if you have about 30.000 songs in the library? I would assume that you are running into trouble because of the very limited hw-specs (in terms of ram, i.e.) of the linkstation.

Any actual experiences on this?
