Do you have a domain server ?
I try to connect to a Win2k Pro so as it's not a domain server, I left the smb.conf with domain server at "Yes" but it doesn't work.
It asks a password when I do "smbclient -L xxx", as there is no password anywhere, I type enter, and it says an error message...
It's strange that it asks for a password whereas I want to display all shares (-L)...

To be able to access shares on a Win2k machine, you need to setup a user with name and password in Win2k. It's the same if you want to access shares on a Win2k machine from W98 etc. The other way around doesn't require this though.

@elwood

I have no domain name server, if that's what you mean.
My setup is like this:

A1 ->Router <-> Debianx86, WinXP,Win98SE,Win98SE.
All linked together through the router.

I cannot seem to download the 2nd file (the update file), I just get an ftp error from the server, I don't suppose anyone is able to email me just the update file, or tell me where else I can get it ?

I could do with getting samba running, I've tried in the past (on classic amiga) and always failed miserably

It seems that the ftpserver hosting the 2nd file does not like IBrowse. After some failures to connect I tried connecting with AmiTradeCenter and then I came in (on the 3 try without PASV).

Got Samba up n running now, almost as easy as on the Classic :)

@Ferry

My ISP is doing maintenance work.
They say it will be working again sometime at midnight CET.

*edit* seems my ISP forgot to mention that they need two midnights

@Fred

Thanks for the tip, I tried IBrowse, no luck, Mozilla on PC, No luck, in desperation even tried Internet Explorer , no luck. CuteFTP with PASV mode turned off worked 1st time. Downloading now, then I'll see if I can get samba working.

@thread

If you have problems downloading the 2nd file, I have mirrored it at:

Samba Update

I uploaded it to make it eaiser for me to transfer the file from PC to Amiga, but I'll leave it there for a while in case anyone else finds it useful

EDIT:

Excellent, I've now got samba working, I can see the PCs on the network, but they can't see me, which is just the way I like it

@all

I have never used samba before, but i got it working right away.
Just ONE question..

On my 250 gig eksternal HD on the pc almost all files has a space or some other [ ) alike long filenames... smbclient does not like those files and i cant get them.. (without renaming)

A easy sollution for this.. like download a whole directory ?

Not so experienced with lc, get, open etc :)

get <filename with no space or alike> is okey, is there something for a dir ?

A short list of other useful commands would also be appriciated, the samba doc on the net is just too complex and has nothing about this that i can see!!!

@Fraggel:

No need to rename any files on your pc. All files on FAT32 and NTFS filesystems also have a short filename for compatibility. If you do a "dir /x" on a cmd.exe/command.com window you will be able to see those short names.

Thanks Sinan for updating and publishing that stuff.

Reminds me to get my server up and alive again- theres more OS4
nuggets of info that need to leak out over time!

I also want to release more infos on how to use SAMBA more effectively
and using 'smbfs' is much a key part of that.

oh, also how to have SAMBA controlling all your Windows PCs
from your Amiga OS4 box!

you're not running nmbd

do this, and the others will see you - so long as your WORKGROUP/DOMAIN
is correctly configured!
