I have a western digital my book world edition 2 and I think the Twonky Server is having problems. It used to be ok, but I noticed that although I could see the drive from my windows machine my new samsung tele wasn't picking up the media that's on it. I've now done some digging around, and there does appear to be a problem, most noticeably that
a) my port scanner says that only 3 ports are active on the NAS, 80 (http), 139 (ssn) and 445 (microsoft-ds), so port 9000 (which I think is usually used by Twonky) doesn't appear
b) loading XBMC on my laptop which can see the network drive fine can't find any DNLA devices on the network
c) when I click on the "media server" link from the WD my book world edition administration pages, it links to http://ip-of-my-NAS:9000
and the web page doesn't do anything, it just times out.
I have tried rebooting the NAS from the admin pages, and I've unplugged it and plugged it back in, but still no Twonky. Is there some way I can force it to run (it looks like it's not at all at the moment), or to restart the twonky server? Is there some way of telling through the NAS admin pages whether or not it's running, and kick it into action if it's not? Can I reinstall Twonky on it (maybe a newer version) which might fix the issue?
Many thanks in advance for any advice. Feel free to tweet me at @johnymoz if it would be easier to talk me through a solution on Twitter if you can assist!
