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?

Yes.

OK I made this yesterday, Samba Manager 0.1

It requires both rcrsn51s YASSM and samba-tng
pets to be installed. It adds a menu entry in 'Network'.

It's a simple script, a hack more than anything.

It's a frontend for both YASSM and Samba-TNG,
hopefully clear enough that idiots like me won't
confuse the purpose of the two.

Of course, this is just for users who want it, and
I do not intend this to be part of either the YASSM
or samba-tng-rcrsn51 pkgs..

Here are some screenshots and the pet, below:

I just installed Puppy Precise 5.4. I can access my shares from the other computers on my LAN but how do I create a share so that I can see it on my other machines. Do I use YASSM or do I have to download Samba Full or do I use Yassm instead?

I know how to set up a share in Puppy Linux 5.2.8 but am not sure how to do it in Precise. Thanks!!

YASSM is not a Samba server. It is a client app, like Pnethood. It does not create shares. It accesses the shares on other machines.

How did you do it in Lupu? Have you tried Samba-TNG in Precise?

Looks like I will be testing Samba 4.0. Can hardly wait!

Haven't tried Samba-TNG. Will look into it.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Mar 2013, 19:20    Post subject: OK with computer address but not name?  

G'day rcrsn51,

I have been trying your YASSM in the latest Pups as pnethood is now mostly missing.

With YASSM, I found I could not mount the shares on my quite old XP computer (called 'DAD2' - from when my children were around - now it's grandchildren pushing buttons & keys!).

I/YASSM could see each share, listed by the drop-down button (e.g. MyDocuments@DAD2) but could not connect.

Reading your advice in some threads, I tried replacing "DAD2" as the Server option with the computer's network address (192.168.2.105 - it was manually set so should be a fixed address) and I could now access the shares.

What is your advice to make this accessing easier in future - rename the old desktop (e.g. is a lowercase name needed? Why is DAD2 a problem - pnethood worked as is) or can I set up a default to use the network address in some way in place of the DAD2 name?

Thanks for any help,
David S.

Do you have the Puppy firewall turned on?

Run the command "nmblookup DAD2". Does this return the server's IP address?

Which Puppy are you using? Both Wary and Precise still have Pnethood.

Slacko-5.xxx mostly, but I'll give the others a go to see if I get any better response with their YASSMs to my old DAD2 desktop with its XP (it's a pretty old version of XP too).

This is a bit of a mystery. YASSM uses a different technique than Pnethood for resolving the server name DAD2 into its IP address 192.168.2.105. But since the nmblookup command above worked for you, I can't see why YASSM would fail.

Try this version
Code:
nmblookup DAD2 | tail -n 1 | cut -f 1 -d " "

Does it also return 192.168.2.105?

In any case, you can continue to use YASSM by using Samba-Select and building a list of your shares on DAD2. Just use the IP address in the list.

As a test, I named an XP machine as DAD2 and created a share named MyDocuments. I then accessed it from Slacko 5.5. Everything worked correctly.

PostPosted: Sat 09 Mar 2013, 19:08    Post subject: two network adaptors?  

G'day rcrsn51,

I tried your suggested code:
Quote:
nmblookup DAD2 | tail -n 1 | cut -f 1 -d " "

and got "192.168.2.101" - which is the network address for this computer's wireless connection with XP.
It has wireless (101) and wired (105) connections.

Could this (2 addresses/2 adaptors) be the cause of the odd behaviour with YASSM on this old desktop? I could try turning one off (e.g. the wireless which can be a little erratic with XP - and I did not get YASSM to work using 192.168.2.101 in place of DAD2, whereas 192.168.2.105 did work)?

Absolutely. Although the XP machine has two IP addresses, it appears that its shares can only be successfully mounted on 105.

But I don't understand the following. You said that "nmblookup DAD2" reported "192.168.2.105". But the second command reported "192.168.2.101".

Did the first command actually report BOTH IPs?

PostPosted: Sat 09 Mar 2013, 21:52    Post subject: slight change in thread direction/problem
Subject description: XP to Windows7
 

G'day again,

I only found the wired 192.168.2.105 connection yesterday with the nmblookup.
But trying again this morning, it did report both addresses (101 & 105). I suspect the wireless was temporarily off yesterday on the XP machine and I did not notice.

As I seem to be successfully learning about networking my now less-used Windows computers ( Very Happy , thanks), I have a mainly dust-gathering Windows7 laptop.

When I try YASSM (& pnethood - I'm running a Upup Precise), the lap-top is found/reported but as "hidden@DAVIDLAPTOP-PC". It is connecting via its wireless adaptor at 192.168.2.8 - I had unplugged its wired connection quite a while ago.

In case you are a Windows7 expert, how do I unhide the Shares on this lap-top? I think I have tried everything in its Control Panel to make folders shared and public, but "who knows?"
I'm trying a few passwords and user names but with no luck nor skill (as suggested in your guide earlier (page1) in this thread).

Or should I re-establish the wired connection (if that was an issue with the XP computer difficulty)? Just need to find a cable to test this out.

David S.

In YASSM, "hidden" just means that the share requires authentication. When you use the Win7 machine, does it require a username and password?

What happens with Pnethood? You would need to enter the authentication, then hit Rescan to see the shares.

You might need to use the Win7 machine's admin-level password.

I'm struggling to connect to my Win 7 PC, any help would be really appreciated. Here's what I have...

Win 7 machine:
Computer name: acer
Share: I just created a folder in the root of C: called /pupshare and set sharing properties (chose my usual Windows login/password as the only user allowed access).
IP address: 192.168.1.73 (dynamically assigned by router).
Potential problems: Firewall and Hamachi disabled (closed)

Puppy machine:
Slacko 5.5, firewall temporarily set to OFF
YASSM 2.6
Connected via wireless

If I scan using YASSM I find hidden@ACER (and hidden@BTHUB3 for some reason, maybe the router control panel??).

If I then select it and enter my username/password/share name I get a 'no connection to pupshare' error.

I've tried all variations of upper/lower case for the server name with and without the additional ?192.168.1.0 and preceding slashes //

I've tried /pupshare and pupshare in the share name and tried putting the windows WORKGROUP name in options.

If, I click the 'Shares' button in the credentials dialog I get a dropdown list with 'NONE' as the only item so it seems the pupshare directory isn't visible.

It's got me beat... any pointers anyone? Very Happy

Paul
