It does not work with my NAS unit. I'm hacking my NAS unit settings now and trying the various settings as noted in the tutorial. Unfortunately, it will not take the settings more than a couple at a time, so I can't just duplicate the smb.conf. It seems that if the NAS code recognizes that something is not quite right with the smb.conf file it restores a default over top of my changes. <-- I figured out how to make things work better after trial-and-error.
EDIT - spent the 5 hours trying to figure it out. couldn't find the right magic to make it work. tried the tutorial hints, plus many other settings. my NAS is definitely working ONLY on port 139, if that helps (locks at loading 1 for 445). My NAS works great for sharing to Vista and XP, with and without passwords; but does not work with Open PS2 Loader.
I did note that Open PS2 Loader does not use a username (null I suppose), but even with security=share, my Windows hosts would show that they entered a username in the NAS logs, even though no username/password entry was required. Open PS2 Loader would look like it connected but show no games, when I rebooted the NAS while it was in this state, multiple little CD-images would show on the left side with the compatibility mode line, but no game names would show (only one game on NAS for testing with one ul.cfg). When X pressed, it would go through the colors and stick at white, definitely LIGHTLY accessing the NAS unit doing so. This is on a game which works from Vista share. Twice while changing users/shares on the NAS while Open PS2 Loader was on and had already failed to connect to the NAS, it showed exitmode=0 where the game names would show next to the CD images on Open PS2 Loader.
