PostPosted: Tue 18 Jan 2011, 15:53    Post subject:  Network Samba  

I'm probably doing something wrong. I installed the two pets as per the instructions. When I type samba-start in console, I get
"bash: samba-start: console not found"

When I run samba-login (after dragging to desktop) with default settings I get a dialogue box saying "no connection to pupshare"

On the plus side Pnethood now shows a tab for pupserver, but does not show a drive. It still sees the Windows machine and allows me to connect to the drive there.

Where to next?

Thanks.

Where did you type "samba-start"? You have an icon on your desktop that opens a window for typing commands. You can check that Samba is running with the "ps" command.

Also, does your Puppy setup have a /mnt/home folder? You can tell with the command "ls /mnt/home".

Thanks again.

I used the console on the Puppy 5.2 desktop.
samba-start now does nothing.
is /mnt/home gives me "bash: is: command not found"

The "ls" command is typed with an "ell".

When you type the "ps" command, you should see ten processes running, starting with nmbd and ending with smbd.

It sounds like the server is running. Go to a client machine and see if you can connect to it.

Sorry, I used "is". Ls does show the content of the folder. The 10 programs are running on Puppy.

From the XP machine, Network Places does see the Puppy but there are no shared drives, so cannot log onto them.

Couple of question where we might be better able to zero-in on your problem.
  • Which SAMBA did you install? (How did you get SAMBA on your system)
  • Which Puppy are you using? (Several recent Puppies changed fs structure and rules and it looks like you are using Puppy 5.2)
Should be snap to help you after this.

You are very kind.

I think Samba came with the the distro though I don't know what version. The Puppy is 5.2. How can I find the version of Samba?

Why isn't there a GUI for this?

Go back to the Samba-TNG tutorial and follow the instructions for making a desktop shortcut.

ie. Right click on the desktop - New - Shortcut - \\pupserver

Now I'm confused as to what you are running.

When I create the windows shortcut I am told that the file \\pupserver cannot be found.

I installed the two samba-tng pets as per the tutorial. However I do not know what was installed with the distro. You think you're confused...?

Do you have firewalls running on either your Puppy or Windows machine that might be blocking access to the server?

Ahahh! After turning off firewalls I was able to connect to \\pupserver using root/woofwoof. Thank you.

Is it now possible to add other shared drives and remove the username/password requirement?
