I can't seem to find the original post where I discovered PureFTPd (damn phpBB search engine), but PureFTPd is a wonderful gem for my humble needs of sharing files and folders between computers on my home LAN. At least on my Puppy v2.12, local information on PureFTPd is sparse at best, so I strongly advise forgetting about the GUI and go hardcore commando with the command line. For this there's appropriate linkage at bottom of the post.

Here's some dope:

1) On my main desktop computer, I start PureFTPd daemonized from /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal with this: <StartupCommand>pure-ftpd BADk 90</StartupCommand>

2) Being a hopeless dinosaur from the MS-DOS and CP/M days, I use LFTP - a great command line ftp app made by some clever Russian coders.

3) Set up usernames and passwords for each of the "satellite" computers on the main computer.

4) Set up machine alias names in LFTP's bookmarks file with login scripts, which enables me to have quick network access with the simple command: lftp <machine alias name>

5) Network consists of a hardware router connecting three computers, all via ethernet.

To mount folders of a german windows-machine, I had to use this, to display the characters correct in Rox-Filer in Puppy3 (Muppy 0083):

Code:
smbmount //192.168.100.158/COMMON /mnt/COMMON/ -o "username=,password=,codepage=cp850,iocharset=utf8"

Do you know if that has any implications for other languages? It works in english. Should those always be the default in pnethood if it is using smb?

no, the codepage is regionspecific.

cp850 will display german filenames correctly, but not french.
So it should not be set as default.

Here in the company I currently write some scripts to mount folders at startup, but the country-settings and foldernames are very specific, so I will not post them.

For a general use, pnethood from zigbert atually is the best solution.
It is in newer versions of Puppy already I think.

pnethood is from HairyWill Smile
I guess he was asking in case it could be improved...

I created new users, has launched pure-ftpd to allow anonymous / not allow anonymous = no access to /mnt/home/dddd

and in general - create by me, users do not have any access at all!

how do I get access to the folder /mnt/home/dddd ?

Puppy is explicitly single-user, where you always run as root, and the infrastructure to support multiple users is broken.

You shouldn't use ftp for this in any case.

Look at Samba instead. Samba is a free, open source package that implements the SMB protocol used by Microsoft Networking on *nix machines. Using Samba, you can share selected directories with XP. XP will see them as network resources, and you can mount Samba enabled directories as network drives in Windows, appearing in My Computer.

There are several PET packages for Samba 3.X for Puppy. A Forum search should find likely candidates.

The "official" samba package in petget should work fine. What you'll need to search for is howtos for configuring it. e.g. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22363

Thank you, I was able to connect via samba (use ch-min-samba-3.0.26.sfs)
But I can not Share a folder on a flash drive!
the fact that:

my puppy boot from flashdrive via grub4dos,
MENU.LST:

title Puppy-420-ru-k2.6.25.16-opera
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /Puppy-420-ru-k2.6.25.16-opera/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 psubdir=Puppy-420-ru-k2.6.25.16-opera
initrd /Puppy-420-ru-k2.6.25.16-opera/initrd.gz

puppy sees my flash drive as sda1 "/mnt/home"
but the "/mnt/home" is a link to "/initrd/mnt/dev_save"

If I allow access to the folder "/" there is no
"/initrd/mnt/dev_save"

[public]
comment = Public Stuff
path = /
;mnt/home/Dmisc
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
;write list = @staff

If I allow access to the folder "/initrd/mnt/dev_save",
then the system hangs and I do not know what's going on (communication with puppy through x11vnc)

How do I get access to the folder on the flashdrive in my case?

Hello.
I'm trying to share a partition formatted with NTFS in windows.
The partition is named / mnt/sda2.
I create the user "localuser" with path / mnt/sda2.
From windows, I write ftp://192.168.1.3. And user and password "localuser" and password.
But I do not open anything.
But if I create the user "localuser" with path / I can log in from windows, but under the directory / mnt not find / sda2 !!!!!
Why?
can you help me please?
thanks.

Want to connect to my Download Server to retrieve and save files.
Wary 5.1.1 does not appear to have either of the tools listed here.
What do I use ?

NB: No apparent support in RDESKTOP 1.6 to allow me to mount Laptop drive when connected remotely! So far only USB to transfer files !

What networking protocol is your server using? SMB? FTP?

Is this server on your LAN?
