LameSMBxplorer doesn't seem to work in Lucid Puppy 5.1.1 it just scans and scans and locks up the network, I have to reboot the computer to free up the network(strange).

Interesting. I can't remember - does lameSMBxplorer use nbtscan? I have found that pnethood sometimes keeps scanning forever... if I run `killall nbtscan` it stops scanning and shows me all the shares Smile

Nice find. For me pnethood scans forever in lucid puppies. I even posted about it in some version thread. The problem has persisted up to 5.1.1.
I tested pnethood in puppy 4.3.1. No problem in my wlan-lan home network. The search finished quickly and did find shares.

16 with names and 1 unknown.

If you run
Code:
smbclient -NL NAME

where NAME is the NETBIOS name of one of the other two machines, is it detected?

I ran lameSMBxplorer and using the killall nbtscan twice it stopped and the network became usable again.
Although after it stopped it did not show anything listed in the network.

Oh. I've seen that error. It was quite hard to find the right answer (in my case) with Google Sad
IIRC some causes of it may have been identified earlier in this thread though.

I just installed pnethood 0.65 in a Debian KDE box and discovered something in the code that should probably be changed, even for Puppy. At about line 69
Code:
 SUBNETS=`ifconfig | grep inet| grep -v "127.0.0.1" | grep -v P-t-P | sed 's/\ *inet
should be
Code:
 SUBNETS=`ifconfig | grep "inet "| grep -v "127.0.0.1" | grep -v P-t-P | sed 's/\ *inet

The reason being that some ifconfig calls return a line that has Inet6 in it and that will render pnethood completely useless.

Finally figured out why Pnethood was not seeing all the shares.
My fault really, the two computers it would not see had their XP built in firewall turned on Smile
I found a little program written by MU, close to the bottom of the page.
This runs from terminal and scans the network, the two showed up on the list but had an cli error, which go me to thinking about firewalls.

Pnethood includes log connection files, your problem wasn´t show on them?

Although major Puppy versions don´t have IPv6 enabled, your code is a fail save fix for customized kernel builds that include IPv6 and could be added in Pnethood.

Thank you

Folks, please excuse: just installed Puppy lucid 5.11 on Acer Aspire One.
Actually on a USB "drive" plugged into the Aspire, which is Ethernet connected to my Windows 98SE desktop.

Pnethood finds no shares.

Is there any use of me, a rusty old amateur, trying to see the desktop's files from the Linux machine?

As I recall from months ago, using 4.31 ? , I was able to.
Maybe I'd used lameSMBexplorer?

Many thanks,

Sheldon Isaac

Hi sheldonisaac,

Please try latest pnethood version 0.6.6 from here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60672.

If some share is seen, then mount them using "cifs".

If you still don´t find any shares, look the log and share file in /tmp/pnethood, for any error and post them here.

Also post the results from command:

Code:
smbclient -NL WIN98_IP


Greetings,
clarf

Why is it trying to connect to 8.15.7.117 ?

I booted Puppy 4.31 from frugal HDD, and installed the pnethood v0.66
It shows plenty of shared directories on the networked Win98SE computer.

Maybe this and the other info will enable clarf or someone to help me get it working with lucid Puppy 5.1.1

Thanks,

Sheldon

Seems an error related to libiconv library. Which Puppy version shows it? Does Pnethood 0.6.6 with UTF-8 support shows that error?.

What is the IP shown by the "ping" command for that machine. Please, type in terminal: "ping SHELDON".

Pnethood is looking for that class C network:

Don´t worry sheldonisaac, we are learning about samba stuff Smile

Sorry for the misunderstand with the command, I think I didn´t explain myself good enough. The command "smbclient -NL WIN98_IP" in fact is "smbclient -NL your_win98_machine_IP". In your case is:

Code:
smbclient -NL SHELDON


Good to know that Pnethood 0.6.6 worked for you. It has UTF-8 support and also add the "guest" user and password when it search for shares, when no user and password is provided by the user... I think, that could make a difference for your system.

5.1.1.
I am using Pnethood 0.6.6.

Thanks, rcrsn51, I did, and that did get rid of them.

I think it showed 8.15.7.117

Well, I changed the name of the Windows 98SE computer to shelasus,
so now pnethood finds SHELASUS, but no shares.

Does this have anything to do with hosts, hosts.allow, and so on?

After getting your (clarf) message, and rcrsn51's,
I commented out the existing addresses in /etc/hosts, and added a line that says
Code:

192.168.1.100  shelasus


So now when I ping shelasus, it works. time 0.3 ms.

Previously, something (a DNS server somewhere?) caused
ping shelasus to try to ping 8.15.7.117

Well, now I tried
Code:

smbclient -NL SHELASUS


and it says

Code:
Error connecting to 8.15.7.117 (Connection refused)



I apologize for my lack of knowledge.

Thanks to both of you.

Oh. Are there files I should look at (and maybe copy) from my frugal Puppy 4.3.1?
