How to use NSLU2 SMB share with SMS: A guide
How to use NSLU2 SMB share with SMS: A guide –
Those who followed recent thread about SMB shares on Slug (Linksys NSLU2) know that I had problems connecting to Slug shares from SMS. Here is a solution. It is written for Windows users.
Go to Slug and select Administration->System tab.
Ignore Server Name entry and go to Comment field. Enter there your SMB name for all SMB shares. This name must be without spaces, all in one word. In this example, I am using THESLUG.
Save and reboot Slug. Check that shares are still visible on your Windows machine (or whatever you are using). A restart might be needed.
Once you verified that shares are accessible from PC, download and install Crimson Editor.
Start Crimson Editor, create new file and type in the following:
The first line is your Slug address. The second is the same as in Comment field you entered in your Slug's interface. The third is (obviously) your PS2 name and username and password are login credentials for SMB shares.
Note that password MUST be a last line in this file!
Once you entered all that, go to Document->File Format and select Unix Format. This is a MUST.
Save your file as SMS.smb
Note that it must be exactly as above - SMS in uppercase and smb in lowercase.
Now, to be 100% sure that everything is done correctly, open this file with Notepad. You should see all entries squeezed in one line. Do not save it! Just close Notepad, open DOS window and type type SMS.smb. Now you should see it in a way you entered it, i.e. 5 lines of text.
Transfer this file to SMS directory. In my case, it is mc/0/SMS. I am using Filezilla for FTP transfers to my PS2 but YMMV.
Once file was tranferred, go to your PS2 and start SMS. Press START button and you should see settings page. Go to networking and disable automatic networking. Go back, save settings and exit SMS.
Start SMS again. This time you should see Protocol: ps2client (or something like that - I am writing this from memory). Change it to SMB/CIFS. Select Start Network support and new icon on top should appear in a couple of seconds.
That's pretty much it
Hope it helps.
P.S. I was about to post links to Crimson Editor and previous discussion thread, but this forum didn't allow me to do so as I have less than 15 posts.
...this is really strange, because I've used standard windows Notepad to type SMS.smb in and Filezilla to transfer it to memory card (I'm not sure, however, was there uLE or execftps running on PS2 side). Anyway, congratulations and thanks for the research ...
I was using fairly old (a year or so ago) execftps for file transfer if that helps.
