I was surprised that "nbtscan -q 10.1.0.0/16" did not find your NAS boxes, because I believe that's how Pnethood does it. But maybe "nbtscan -q -t 3000 10.1.0.0/16" would work.


It certainly looks to be a timing issue.
Code:
# nbtscan -q -t 3000 10.1.0.0/16
# nbtscan -q -t 4000 10.1.0.0/16
# nbtscan -q -t 5000 10.1.0.0/16
# nbtscan -q -t 6000 10.1.0.0/16
# nbtscan -q -t 7000 10.1.0.0/16
10.1.1.3         REPOTEC          <server>  REPOTEC          00-00-00-00-00-00
10.1.1.7         NAS              <server>  NAS              00-00-00-00-00-00

Could you repeat that, but with
Code:
nbtscan -q -t xxxx 10.1.1.0-254

Time appears not to effect the result, "t" can be anything higher than "1"

Thank you again. This has been invaluable testing.

I have posted YASSM v2.3 above. The new samba-search tool should work with your network, but samba-login and samba-select are still available if you need them.

What a great test!

Did that list not originally have a scroll bar on it? Or did you resize the window?

I should really make the default height larger for serious file sharers like yourself. Wink

YASSM v2.4.2 adds some improvements to the samba-search tool.

1. The new user interface lets you mount several shares at once without having to rescan the network.

2. You can now scan for shares across multiple subnets.

Subject description: 2.4.3 re Win98 server
 

Hi. Haven't been using LAN for a while. Now on netbook with Lucid Puppy 5.2.8, trying to connect to Win98 server.

(some snipping)

If you are logging into a basic Windows XP share, you can leave the Username, Password and Options fields empty.

Yes, it saw a shared directory on a winXP computer, thanks.

Note to firewall users: YASSM needs help finding a share if the client machine is running the Puppy firewall. Add your LAN's network prefix to the server name. For example, acer?192.168.2.0. Note that the last digit is a zero and the question mark character is used as a separator.
Or just try using the full IP address as the server name.
Please excuse, I don't understand that about "LAN's network prefix" ; I tried turning off the firewall on this computer.
Quote:

Note to Win9X owners: When connecting to a Win9X machine, you must enter the share and server names in UPPER case. And you must include the option servern=SERVER_NAME.

Here's samba-login.set
Code:
 
USER=""
PASSWORD=""
SHARE="E-SHARE"
SERVER="SHELDON"
OPTIONS="domain=WORKGROUP;servern=SHELDON"


Yay, it's working.


Thanks,
Sheldon

@sheldonisaac: It's nice to hear again from the original YASSM tester! Your Win98 server box is still running?

Programs like Pnethood and YASSM need to convert a server's name into its IP address in order to mount its shares. They do it by scanning the network for a server with the correct name and returning the matching IP.

But in some cases, the presence of a firewall can interfere with this procedure. The easiest solution is to turn off the firewall. But if you don't want to do that, YASSM has an alternative.

You can specify the server name as "server?aaa.bbb.ccc.0". Then YASSM will use a different, slower procedure to find the IP address.

You can also use this technique if your network is divided into segments using several routers. By using the server?subnet description, YASSM has a better chance of finding shares on a remote server.

YASSM 2.4.6 is posted above. This version uses mpscan instead of nbtscan as its internal share detection engine. The initial network scan is a little slower, but mpscan is a more reliable tool.

Call me thick but I'm a little confused...

I have Samba-TNG installed.. Now I want the GUI frontend that works best with it.

I already have an older version of your samba-tng pet,
and noticed the latest pet does not have the '/usr/local/samba/client' folder, but I do! This folder has samba-login in it, and samba-select ...

I also downloaded your YASSM pet, and looked at that...
Does it work with samba-tng? I plan to simply whack YASSM into my pup, and hope it works with the actual samba-tng stuff already in there from samba-tng-rcrsn-0.5-rc1.pet ....

The original samba-TNG packages also contained the client programs like samba-login. They were stored in the folder /usr/local/samba/client. But that was causing some confusion over server versus client functionality. So I split the client apps into their own package named YASSM. YASSM 2.4.6 now uses the folder /usr/local/yassm.

Just to be clear, YASSM is not a GUI front-end for samba-TNG. YASSM is an alternative to Pnethood or lameSMBxplorer. But it definitely works as a tool for mounting samba-TNG shares.

No. You want to install it in other Puppies so they can access the TNG shares or Windows shares, etc.

Ok cool.

OK, just to confirm I am indeed thick... So, let see if this is correct:

1. YASSM is a client, for connecting to ('mounting') samba AND samba-tng shares on OTHER PCs ...
2. And samba-tng-rcrsn-0.5-rc1 is purely for setting up a server, creating a 'share' that others can 'mount'...


Is the above correct?
