I think Apple PCs support SAMBA, but a quick google indicates that maybe I*P*A*D*S don't... but can if you install an app called "FileBrowser" or something. I may have not have that quite straight though...

I really liked the simplicity of your HTTP solution but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

To access a Windows share from Puppy:

1. Declare a shared folder on the Windows machine.

2. Launch Puppy and run Pnethood or lameSMBxplorer from the Network menu.

---------------------------

To access a Puppy share from a Windows machine or another Puppy:

You need to run a server on the host Puppy machine. This could be a full Samba server or an ftp server, but here is my favourite method.

1. Go here and install the Python PET. Did this

2. Set up a share folder anywhere on your Puppy system and put some files in it. Yes, did this too

3. Open the folder in ROX. Yes

4. Open a terminal window inside the folder by pressing the backtick key (above the Tab key). Yes

5. Type the command
Code:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer This setup the server but it said the address was 0.0.0.0:8000

6. Minimize the terminal window, but don't close it.

7. Identify your Puppy server's IP address with the command
Code:
ifconfig
This gave me 192.168.0.2

8. Go to the client machine and open a web browser.

9. Type in the URL
Code:
http://puppy.server.ip.address:8000
I typed in http://192.168.0.2 and the connection was refused

Now if I typed the above into the sever computer that is connected to the wireless router it displayed the shared directory. When I tried this from a laptop running either puppy or windows the connection was refused. Any ideas?

You need to type
Code:
http://192.168.0.2:8000

Are you forgetting the 8000? Are you running a firewall?

I typed http://192.168.0.2:8000 and it works ok from the host/server computer but I guess that is inside the firewall. I will try a clean install and leave the firewall off.

I just tried a live session of Lupu 5.2.1 without the firewall and it worked great.

Thanks for you help. Much appreciated.

Glad to help. Your next problem is to upload files from the I*P*A*D to Puppy. Like disciple said, you will need to find out what client software is available for it.

What do you know about PureFTPd server and HTTPd?

This might work.

I have to say, I love the simplicity of TNG. If only there was a ntfs-TNG Smile

I'll see what can be done to get busybox httpd to play nice. If the code turns out to be hackable it may be useful to port some applets to busybox too.

Hmmm. I think an anti-spam script has become overenthusiastic with automatically editing posts.
Perhaps it should check if the poster has over a thousand posts or has been a member for a year or something Wink

I told the forum to change "i P a d" to "piece of crap" to discourage spammers. I think it has worked pretty well. To get around it, misspell i P a d somehow. I use i-Pad. You can edit your post to that effect.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Apr 2011, 13:10    Post_subject: A small modification to the samba-start
Sub_title: How to run headless?
 

Hi rcrsn51, thank you for your samba-start pet you made for me.

I have changed it a bit so that it would also mount my USB-HDD (somehow it was not always available even though I did not change anything). But now with your modified script in the start-up folder it is always mounted - and shared using SAMBA.

#!/bin/sh
while [ 1 ]; do
ping -c 1 8.8.8.8
[ $? -eq 0 ] && break
sleep 5
done
mkdir /mnt/sdb1
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1
samba-start


I would like use this small Puppu computer as a music server, and therefore it needs to run without a monitor and keyboard.

You wrote ......."Then you could boot Puppy with the "pfix=nox,fsck" argument and run headless!"
But where do I use this command, and also should I then put your Samba-start script into the rc.locale?
Just copy paste or?

Steen

In the GRUB menu.lst file, such as
Code:
 kernel /vmlinuz .....pfix=nox,fsck

I haven't tried this, but I would just paste the lines of your script into /etc/rc.d/rc.local and see if it works there. If you are booting with nox, it may not work in /root/Startup.

Go to the root of your Puppy partition and find the folder /boot/grub.

I just tested this with no monitor and it appears to work. The problem with removing the keyboard is that some BIOSs won't start without one.

I am really sorry for being so studpid, but how?

Do I start the file browser in Puppy, or do I ssh into puppy from another computer, anyway I can't see any boot folder.

Using the newest Puppy

I have used the file finder = Pfind - it did not find any menu.lst (mark in All files).

Regarding putting the script in the rc.local file - it was fine, and started up after a reboot.

Click on the icon at the bottom of the screen that represents the partition in which Puppy is installed. Do you not see a folder named boot?
