I've installed the Enable Root SSH Access plugin to my ReadyNAS Ultra 4. It used to work, but now I'm only getting this message:

$ ssh tomas@192.168.1.3

Connection to 192.168.1.3 closed.

The connection is closed immediately, never giving me a chance to input any commands. The only change that has happened since SSH worked (that I know of) is updating the firmware of the NAS. Also, the SSH plugin isn't showing up in the "Installed Add-ons" list. Any chance the firmware update screwed up the SSH plugin? I successfully installed the plugin again, but with no effect.

Well that was embarrassing. I just realized I have to connect using the root user, as the name of the plugin suggests.

$ ssh root@192.168.1.3
root@192.168.1.3's password:
