hi all,

im running PLi Citrine on a DM7000. yesterday I installed samba via internet download, and rebooted, it worked fine as I can see smbd process now running ...

then I went to "my network places" on my PC, and kinda hoped that the dreambox would somehow appear here


but it didnt


I have a perfect connection already to my DB, through a router, so i can telnet, ftp, etc, no problem.

Do I have to tell my PC to now "look" for the DB ? ... somehow i had thought it would automatically appear when I installed samba on the DB.

A few days ago I installed a new piece of hardware in my network (an NSLU2 USB to eth adaptor for NAS) , and it automatically appeared in "my network places"

any ideas ?

ok, someone on another forum gave me the solution ... here it is for anyone interested ...

Replace /var/etc/smb.conf with this, then it will show up in your network.
You can of cource edit valid users, allow host etc. to match your setup

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

global]
log file = /hdd/log/log.%m
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
netbios name = Dreambox
server string = Dreambox
username map = /etc/user.map
guest ok = yes
guest account = root
encrypt passwords = yes
password server = none
security = share
interfaces = 192.168.0.24
workgroup = ork
debug level = 0
os level = 0

[hdd]
comment = HDD on Dreambox
writeable = yes
path = /mnt/hdd
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = root, nobody, rioh
allow hosts = 192.168.0.

[root]
comment = Root on Dreambox ( Attention ! )
path = /
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = root, nobody, rioh
allow hosts = 192.168.0.

Been playing with this, it gets to the login for the dreambox, but won't accept any password, can you see anything wrong with my file?

Code:
[global]
log file = /hdd/log/log.%m
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
netbios name = Dreambox
server string = Dreambox
username map = /etc/user.map
guest ok = yes
guest account = root
encrypt passwords = yes
password server = none
security = share
interfaces = 192.168.0.24
workgroup = Mshome
debug level = 0
os level = 0

[hdd]
comment = HDD on Dreambox
writeable = yes
path = /mnt/hdd
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = root, nobody, rioh
allow hosts = 192.168.0.10

[root]
comment = Root on Dreambox ( Attention ! )
path = /
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
valid users = root, nobody, rioh
allow hosts = 192.168.0.10

[/code]
i had the exact same prob rolf ... however, when i goto nework places i get 2 new icons for the DB, one is hdd and the other is root. with hdd i am prompted for a password, and nothing i put in here will work. But with root i am not prompted for a password, and can view the DB files, and of course also /hdd which is in root. So I mapped /root as a network drive and all works fine. I dont know why /hdd is password locked, and i also have no idea what this password can be ...

some suggestions, add your own login to the 'valid users' section, and also insure youre firewall allows your DB IP in. II also noted that it popped into my workgroup before it appeared in network places
