Re: magnia sg20

If the magnia was equipped with a CD-Rom, a video card, keyboard/mouse ports or even a serial port, the advice to use "Hiren's BootCD" would be useful. However the advice is imcomplete at best. First, some advice. If the magnia is being used as a router (as opposed to a file sserver) I would advise against using the disk image from toshiba. It is showing it's age and is not secure. As a file server, it's fine. There are several alternative images. Yahoo's SG20 group is a good place to start. Next, you will need a means to transfer your disc image to the magnia. Most people use a USB<-->2.5" IDE adaptor and transfer the image using a laptop (which has the required video card, keyboard, and cd-rom). I've never re-imaged using the toshiba CD. So I don't know if the CD contains all the necessary software, or if you will need a BootCD (such as Hiren's). Good luck

I have 2 different magnia sg20 servers. One is in the office and the other one at home. Now I want to access one server from the other network. But as both of them have the same ip, I am blocked. So I...

No. You are on two different networks. Regardless of the hardware. Treat the home server just like any other PC or tablet. Make sure it has a dynamic IP via DHCP from your home router or ISP modem. Then connect via VPN.

You will not be able to network the two servers unless you have right equipment and network configuration. You would have to work with your service provider to obtain static IP's.

Internal IPs are irrelevant, because you can assign them your self internally. That means no one else sees them.

Cannot access admin functions toshiba magnia sg20

If it was unplugged for any period of time, it is probably reset to default settings. Password is default, etc and you are trying to access with the wrong credentials.

Try resetting it manually and starting as if you just purchased it, if you continue to have problems. There should be a reset button or procedures on how to reset in the documentation.

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones

Use a pen or paper clip to push the reset button that is on the back panel. Look toward the top by the power plug-in.
