It looks like this device is based on the Edmini drive from LaCie. Browsing it, I could see several 'edmini'-related files.

Gaining root SSH access

Remove the casing, and connect the harddrive to a Linux pc. Make sure you browse to the partition of about 3.1GB in size. (presumably /dev/sdb1) This is the boot-partition. Somehow, only root can connect through SSH, so we should give the user root a password. This is done in the file /etc/shadow I copied the password from the user I created when first installing the LaCie Internet Space, so I knew that would work. That's it. Hook the drive up again, and now you can connect via SSH: ssh root@<LACIE IP>

guido@HTPC:~$ ssh root@
Axentra HipServ version 10.0.x

Gaining root SSH access without removing the casing

Here is short overview of how to gain root access without opening the box. It exploits the fact that mt-daapd allows you to run your own shellscripts as root. It is not a step by step howto, but it works if you follow it.
