Hello
In my network , i use Samba-TNG Server on a lucid 5.28 .
No problem with computer to joint it... (puppy machine and windows are right)
But with my tablet (samsung galaxy 10.1 ) I am not able to connect

I don't see samba tng server with android tool es explorer file
i don't see samba tng server with android tool astro
I see 192.168.1.92 and puppy pc with a android tool named fing

With this tool (fing ) on the same windows I see my windows shares 192.168.1.36 and ALAIN (name of my windows computer)
I can join and connect and transfer files to my windows share computer with the two android tools (astro and es explorer files)
i can join puppy with the windows computer and transfer files with this command in a batch
NET USE B: \\192.168.1.92\pupshare /USER:root woofwoof /PERSISTENT:YES
But i am not able to join directly the puppypc with my android system

So can you help me please
Thanks
Alain

I have the same problem with my Android tablet.

Some Puppies with very new kernels also have the problem, but they can access the Samba-TNG server by using the option "sec=ntlm" in their client software.

Is there any place in es explorer or astro where you can include this option?

IIRC, I once got my tablet to detect the Samba-TNG server by starting the server in "guest" mode with no authentication required.

No I don't see options ...

I give you my smb.conf
[global]
dns proxy = no
max log size = 50
domain master = no
domain logons = no
workgroup = pupgroup
netbios name = pupserver
server string = Puppy Samba-TNG Server
security = user
map to guest = Bad Password
;printcap name = cups
load printers = yes

[pupshare]
path = /opt/lampp/htdocs/dossier_partage
writable = yes

[printers]
path = /tmp
printable = yes
guest ok = yes

In es explorer it is mentionned that domain is a field not blank ...
So how can I change my smb.conf for giving a good response (domain not blank ) and to be in a guest mode with no authentification

Thanks again

Alain

Try this with the server in guest mode.:
Code:
[pupshare]
path = /opt/lampp/htdocs/dossier_partage
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
force user = root


I tried this with my tablet using ES File Explorer. The share was not auto-detected, but I manually set up a connection. I could copy files between the tablet and the server both ways.

Most Puppies have a PET/SFS package of "real" Samba. I have tested one of them with my tablet and it worked.

Thanks rcrsn51

I have tryed your smb .conf
it's ok for the others computers of the network but not for the tablet...javascript:emoticon('Sad')

I have also tryed the real samba package of shino
samba-3.5.6-w5.sfs
It worked for the tablet with ES File Explorer...javascript:emoticon('Smile')

So thanks again for the quality of your answer

A simple transfer solution is dropbox.

For transferring files between different platforms I use:

Mongoose, a tiny web server https://code.google.com/p/mongoose/

Open it in a desired folder, and all the files in that folder will be download-able from a browser. The only requisite it's to know the IP of the machine acting as a server. PC's, tablets, etc, must be on the same network, off course.
