@jrb: Can you confirm that samba-tng will work with Vista and/or Win7 clients?

I installed your package on my Quirky130 machine. Initially my wifes win7 didn't detect it although other puppy machines did, so I changed the workgroup name to Workgroup in smb.conf. After a reboot win7 picked it up and is giving me full access.

Thanks. I have been doing some more testing with the P910nd print server. I connected two printers to my barebones431+samba-tng fileserver - a USB inkjet and a parallel port laser. I can print seamlessly to either from both Linux and Windows clients.

Thanks jrb; This goes along with my thought of having "special purpose" puppies.

1) Server ( done )
2) Media player ( jukebox, movie machine )
3) Browser ( keosk, library, internet cafe, etc. )

I`m sure there`s others...

This is awesome. I have been looking for a low power puppy file server.

To go along with "special purpose" pup theme, is the ability to easily (noob fashion) run these as servers and an option to run "headless", with access by means of synergy, VNC. Currently, I use Remmina. It can save configurations for your multiple servers.

Reading through this thread and a couple others that are similar...I get a bit confused.

It would be nice to summarize these threads with a brief explanation on these two configurations:
low ram dedicated servers - Pupserv
workstation - Wary and Quirky w/samba-tng-rcrsn-0.5-rc1.pet

Possibly an edit to the beginning of this thread would suffice.

Thanks,

The beauty of the Puppy live CD and frugal install is that you can try various combinations until you find one that fits your needs.

For example, take a machine that has wifi capability, find a Puppy with the right driver and install samba-tng-rcrsn. In a few minutes, you've got a wireless file/print server on your network!

Thanks for this, it looks really promising. I am currently using your distro on one of the computers in my network, and can access it from other computers using puppy, but so far am unable to get my Fedora 11 box to be able to connect. When I try to connect to the pupserver as a Windows network, I get asked for a domain name and password, and so far I don't seem to be able to get the right combination. Where in pupserver can I specify the domain name etc?

Thanks in advance.

cheers, Paul

I'm not a neworking expert but here goes:

smb.conf is the configuration file. In PupServer435 it is located at /etc/opt/samba/ and contains:
Code:
# Global parameters
[global]
       workgroup = Workgroup
       netbios name = PupServer
       server string = Samba Server %v
       map to guest = Bad User
       log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
       max log size = 50
       socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
       preferred master = No
       local master = No
       dns proxy = No
       security = share

# Share
   [usr=root passwd=woofwoof]
   path = /
   guest ok = Yes
   writeable = Yes
   force user = root

As you can see, Workgroup is the group name, root is the username and woofwoof is the password.

There are many articles on the web about setting up smb.conf. Here is an example of one set up in Fedora, http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/smb.conf

I hope that is of some help. J

Thanks for this. I was looking in the wrong directory. I was looking in /etc/samba rather than /etc/opt/samba

I haven't figured out how to get the Fedora and Puppy boxes to talk to each other yet, but this will help.

Thanks again.

cheers, Paul

Nevermind. I did a search and came across this topic: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61262. I copies the file set the permissions to run as a program and placed it in /root/Startup. Restarted the server and bam it works. I love Puppy and the forums.

Just saw this today. Its a very, very good piece of work for the Puppy community. I don't know how I missed this.

You have the first built-in full function LAN machine via an ISO that can run as a LiveCD.

Congratulation.

You have probably solved this by now, but Fedora has this already solved for you through the Desktop's File Manager utitility. Just click on Network and you should see your Puppy PC.

If not, see the first entry in this document for a sample smb.conf (SAMBA configuration) that will show up on any Windows or Fedora PCs you have on your LAN.

Thanks GC,
My little pentium11 has been chugging away continuously now for 6 weeks flawlessly printing and sharing. I haven't even bothered to burn it to CDR still on CDRW. As they say, "If it ain't broke."

Cheers, J

Sub_title: Starting Samba
 

I know I must be missing something simple, but after downloading & installing the samba-tng pet in this thread I can't figure out how to start Samba! In Puppy 5 I used /"etc/rc.d/rc.samba start" and in Ubuntu I use "/etc/init.d/samba start", but these files don't exist on my Puppy 431 setup. What is the command to start the server?
