Question about Sony SNT-V704 (SNTV704) Video Server

Open Question

SNT-V704 TELNET I have 3 of the Sony SNT-V704 video servers that are going on a NASA network, in order to meet security requirements I need to turn off the telnet and chargen services. The setup software or web service doesn't cover these items. I tried to telnet to the server so I could turn them off through linux commands. But I don't know the root password. Do you have any suggestions?

If your unit keeps crashing this could be a sign of over heating. There is a way to test if it is an overheating issue and that is as the unit is playing use a hot air gun to raise the temperature and trigger the problem once the bad component is found replace it.

How do I reboot a Sony SNT-V704?

Reset your SNT-V704:

Open it up and press the reset button on the main PCB 5 times while it is on. You can find the reset switch lower right corner when the front facia faces the ground. This worked for me.

I know this is an old question but I haven't found this solution on the net so let me know if it helps anyone.

I am in search of an installation and user manual for snt-v504 sony video network server

To get the drivers you should always go to the manufacturers website (put the word support in front, i.e - if its hp search google for "support.hp") and you should then find your model number and get the drivers from there.
DO NOT TRUST any program that purports to find your drivers for you or locate missing drivers, always get your drivers from the manufacturers site.
Also, NEVER ever pay for drivers, the manufacturers ALWAYS provide drivers for their products and will never ever charge for the drivers.
Please please remember to vote if my solution was helpful to you, and if I did not help then please let me know and I can try further steps to assist you :)

Console connection from Cyclades TS1000 and Sun T3+ using RJ-45 to RJ-45 connector, no response.

From what I remember you would need a 'rollover cable' that connects the pins to each other in reverse order (e.g. 1 to 8, 2 to 7, 3 to 6, 4 to 5, 5 to 4, 6 to 3, 7 to 2, 8 to 1)

Receiving but unable to send for approx 14 days. set up on new mail s still unable to send. Message. Protocol SMPT,Port:25,Secure(SSL)No,Error Number Ox800CCCOB

You might check this site:
You did not mention whether you were using antivirus software to send or receive filtered e-mail. I tried looking up your error code-and one common theme I saw was that you should turn it off. It causes problems and does no real good since the high end viruses just send directly from their own code.
However, another thing I saw was that people had errors in their setup.
You imply that this used to work and stopped suddenly. You might still try deleting the mail destination and then re-adding it, insuring that your userid and password are specified correctly, and that you have not inserted any extra spaces, capitalized when you should not, etc.
Finally, open a command line and then enter the command:
telnet 25
where you type the name of your smtp server as specified in your isp's connection stuff.
This to test the ability to reach your ISP's smtp server. See, some ISPs block outbound connections to port 25 - to stop spambots from sending from people's home computer. If it turns out that you can't connect to port 25 on your mail provider's smtp server, sometimes they have an alternate port that you can use. By default the "submission port" (which is only supposed to be used by customers inserting mail initially) is 587, while 25 can be used as a submission port or it can be used by another ISP as they transfer mail to you. So you could try telnetting to port 587 or you could try just specifying 587. But first turn off your anti-virus outbound mail filtering and see if that helps.

Will not detect

Ok well all I can suggest is this... first try a NON-crossover cable.. 2nd.. try the address of The server should be setup according to the manual.. and should be detected upon connection, Also is the server to be set up to ASSIGN an address via it's DCHP or to RECIEVE one from ya lappy? I mean basically it is just a network device that sends stuff when asked, not unlike a networked Hard Drive etc. Usually ya set up the lappy for DHCP and the Video Server gets it's address from the lappy, & when "Polled" sends data to whomever "Polled" it.
