Problem connecting through Samba
Problem connecting through Samba –
Try it the whole night, couldn't get samba to work.
what I have:
1)Network's working, I can connect to shoutcast and listen to online radio
2)I can connect to my xp machine's share from another machine using the right username/password
3)disable Netbios over TCPIP
4)use IP address instead of hostname
still, when myps2 comes up, i don't see any samba share.
also, when myps2 boots up, the part about Samba connection changes way too quick, i wasn't able to see what's wrong with it. Screen capture can't get it either.
The ./log directory doesn't contain any log at all.
Anyone got it working?
If your Windows drive FAT formatted?
it's XP.. NTFS formatted.

now it says:
"parsed 0 shares from smb.xml"
this is what I have in smb.xml
Just a thought looking at the original samba file, try this:
That's IT!!! how can i mis-read the "s"..
Now that the "s" has solved a problem....
Now that the "s" has solved a problem.... –
...my shares I've created in samba.xml appear in MyPS2, but, when I click on the shares it will hang for around 5 seconds or so but not allow me to access the shares.
This was in the docs:
- If you are running Windows XP it can help to turn off the "NetBIOS over TCP/IP" setting under
"Local Area Network Properties" -> "Advanced" -> "WINS"
- Enter the IP address of your computer instead of its NetBIOS name in the samba.xml file.
- Create an lmhosts file with appropriate settings for your network and upload it
- Make sure you can access your shares from other computers in the network.
My XP computer was on a domain so I did the following to make my setup work:
1) disabled the netbios over tcp
2) changed the workgroup in MyPS2 to reflect the XP computer name
3) double checked share as well as file permissions - ended up using local administrator account with password within samba.xml to make sure I had the necessary privs.
4) used the IP address instead of the XP computer name within the samba.xml
Hope this helps someone
