Rescuing a dud PogoPlug E02

My roommate happened to unplug the Pogoplug cable, and after that it doesn't come back up. I set it up around four years ago, so I don't remember exactly what I did, but I did install Jeff's Rescue System v2 and set up netconsole to debug, although I have forgotten which host it was forwarding messages to. I remember I set up SSH on port 942, but that was for the host OS, not the rescue system, obviously.

I remember I had partitioned my USB HDD to have a ext4(3?) ROOTFS partition, but that HDD is reformatted and re-purposed now. So, I don't have a Unix machine at home, so I connected it directly to my Windows machine, and gave it an IP of, and I was able to use Debian on Windows and nmap for Windows to do a port scan and found this -


Not shown: 996 closed ports


135/tcp open msrpc Microsoft Windows RPC

139/tcp open netbios-ssn Microsoft Windows netbios-ssn

445/tcp open microsoft-ds?

2869/tcp open http Microsoft HTTPAPI httpd 2.0 (SSDP/UPnP)

I don't get a netconsole output from any of those ports.

I don't have a serial cable, but, is there any way to rescue this Pogoplug without that?
