There are just two tests I can think of:

Can you ping to the windows computer?

Can you see the share through Lineighborhood?

WEARD..... the IP add. of the Win PC didn't work, so just for the heck of it I tried it's name & bingo!

smbmount //192.168.0.102/S /mnt/data _____ didn't work
smbmount //160SEA/S /mnt/data ___________ DID work

I can see the share useing the PCs name, but for NFS usually the IP add. is what works, Samba seems to prefer names.

Just one quick question - how do you get the ftp server to start automatically on boot? (with a hd install) - probably a cryptic command in /etc/rc.d/local no doubt.

Thanks

See my response in your original thread. There is no need to cross post.

If you cross post I read both and have less time to respond to any.

12. Set the parameters for the mount or accept the defaults. The "mount point" is the puppy folder under which you will see the contents of the shared folder. (write down that path so you remember where it's mounted)
13. Click "Mount". Rox should open on that folder
Done!
...
I observed that in Puppy 1.0.7 the default is /root/mnt/<Server>/<SharedDir>. And during shutdown, Puppy tries to copy its contents to pup100 file. And it fails usually. Probably, it's a bug.

Hi.
I am relatively new to this linux stuff. I came across this puppy distro as I was looking for a light linux to run on an old laptop which has been retired to jukebox duties. So far it's great, best i've found so far for this task.
The "jukebox" (HP omnibook xe2) uses a USB 200G NTFS HD as its mp3 file source, i need to share the drive on my hme network with other win boxes. I found the ftp solution great except for some minor details which i am trying to find a solution for.
1- when I connect to the "jukebox share" which i set to "/mnt/sda1/Music" I can access the Music folder but none of the sub-directories where the music is sorted in sub folders (Albums - Various etc.) permission denied. I have tried setting owner to the user created for the share for all directories in the tree, and set permissions to 755 for same - no luck so far - any ideas?
2- When i disconnect the USB drive or re-boot the box I have to mannualy mount the USB drive and reset permission etc. Is there a way to automount the drive and keep the settings??

Thanks muchly Very Happy

PostPosted: Sat 24 Jun 2006, 02:18    Post subject: file transfer too slow  

I followed the above instructions to connect my puppy computer to a Windows computer. They are connected via a network hub. I tried both SMB and FTP, as explained above. Both are very slow at transfering files. I'm trying to transfer a 700MB file and apparently it will take over 4 hours to do it using the FTP method. If that is the case, I might as well just pull the hard drive out and carry it over to the other computer, which is in the same house, and plug it in to transfer the file that way. Before I do resort to this, does anyone know of a better way to transfer files quickly through the network hub?

Thanks,

ApeMan

Sounds like you have a 10MB ethernet connection somewhere in the chain. I can do an 11GIG file over 100MB ethernet in 40minutes.

USB2.0 will do the same file in 10minutes. If you have USB2.0 in both machines and a USB drive use that. If USB1.1 is in either, stick with the 10MB Ethernet.

IDE over the board would be faster yet (probably about 1-2minutes).

Don't blame FTP or puppy. Blame your network.

There is something wrong with your network.

I can download a 700MB From the Internet in a few minutes over a 3 Mbps connection. Over my intranet at 100 Mbps I can do it in a few seconds.

I'm probably doing something wrong here:
I set up the ftp server following your advice.
Than I tried to access it from my Debian machine
first with a browser - I typed the address of ftp into the path and it says that login is incorrect. It didn't ask for a login or anything.
Than I thought I'd try gftp: I connected to my puppy computer and could see the contents of my "share" folder - but I have problems when I try to download anything from it.
It disconnects, says that there's no such file or directory, or that it can't modify some directory, "invalid response from server".

I can see the contents of the "share" folder, when I access the ftp with konqueror. When I use my default nautilus, there's an error, that it can't display the contents of this folder. I still can't copy any files from that computer though - with any browser.

I'm using puppy 2.02
I'm clueless

gabriel_007,

Betaftp has problems on Puppy >=2.0 http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=10711

Just FYI, to have mozilla prompt for an ftp password use the format: ftp://username@ipaddress-or-servername

files and folders (and symlinks) in /root/ghttpd/htdocs will now be available on your network and on the internet

i find this easier than setting up file sharing

you may have to open a port in your firewall, or shut it down

there's a roxapp that starts/stops the httpd server with the click of a button on my dotpups page

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

---- and now time warp over 1 year to 26 SEP 2006
and I've just been using this technique in pup2.02sm and it works fine for transferring windows-shares to puppys (my network has 4 PCs which frugally dual boot to windows or various pup versions - the actual state being the whim of the current user).

Anyway - I've created puppy ghttpd symlinks on each computer to the required windows shared folder- eg
ln -s /mnt/home/junk /root/ghttpd/Shares/c_junk
ln -s /mnt/home/box /root/ghttpd/Shares/c_box
ln -s /mnt/home/audio_files /root/ghttpd/Shares/c_audio

I've set the ghttpd config to home in on the ghttpd/Shares directory and all works perfectly - almost -
All symlinks navigate fine from remote puppy PCs & all target windows folders/subfolders can be navigated & all individual files can be copied by 'save target as ---'

Only problem is - this won't copy folders & contents - trying to save the target folder by 'save target as---' results in the saving of the html address of the folder Sad

This is such a nifty technique to get windows shares from puppies I'm just praying that someone has a solution to this folder problem.

r__hughes,

wget -r url will recurse directories. You might want to read the help(wget --help) first. I'm not sure if you also wanted to copy these files from Windows? Wget is also available for Windows.
Of course you could always install and use Samba instead, or an ftpd+ncftp(or similar) client.
