Ok, first of all I verified that I have compiled the latest version like you described above: Yes, it is rev. 482
Then I tried to use Username "guest" instead of "GUEST": Like expected, no effect.
Then I tried the phenomenon with creating a folder with another name than "CD" or "DVD": OPL doesn't react on these folders. I still can see and play the ul games.
But immediately when I create (or rename) a folder named "CD" or "DVD" the game list disappeares.
So I got wireshark and made a capture starting with OPL launched and no Folder in the PS2SMB Folder on my NAS:
1. starting the capture
2. creating a folder named DVD and wait until the list disapeares
3. remove the folder and wait until the game list appeares
4. stop capture and save file
maybe you need the ip adresses:
I hope I made the capture right and you can figure out the problem.
Bye and thanks!
hmmm damn ... looks like you have a pretty cool router/switch, and not a simple hub that let all traffic go through ...
There are only see packets between your PC <-> NAS, nothing related to the PS2 ...
Are your CD/DVD folders empty ? If yes, could you try to add a valid iso game.
Ok, maybe the reason why no PS2 related traffic can be seen is, that the PC is connected via WLAN Access Point to my router, while the NAS and the PS2 are connected to a switch (which itself is connected to the router). I made a little scetch to illustrate the topology (see attached).
Do you think it would help to connect the PC directly (via cable) to the switch where the NAS and the PS2 is connected?
Yes, the DVD folder was empty. I will make another capture this evening with a valid iso game.
I made a last test yesterday with the PS2SMB folder on the PC and voilą everything works fine. I can see both, the ul games and the iso game in the DVD folder.
But that doesn't satisfy my aim. For power efficiency and start up time the NAS would be the better solution. I still hope we can fix the problem.
Thanks for your help so far!
Yes it will help a lot.

Connect your PC directly to your switch, and let's hope it doesn't filter traffic (which should be the case for a "real" switch). The best solution would be to use a simple hub, or maybe your router have multiple eth connectors ?
Sorry, I didn't had the time yesterday to make another capture.
Today I'll get another switch from a friend, which is hopefully unmanaged. Mine is managed. That was one of the reasons why I baught it. Never thought it could be a disadvantage.
Ok, I got another switch and connected PS2, NAS, PC and the router (DHCP Server) to it.
For this capture I copied a folder containig a valid iso game to the PS2SMB folder and renamed it to DVDX. After assuring that OPL still shows the list of ul games I startet the following procedure:
1. start capture
2. rename the DVDX folder to DVD and wait until the list of ul games disappear
3. rename the DVD folder to DVDX and wait until the list of ul games appear
4. stop capture
I don't know if there is something related to the PS2.
The IP of the PC is .96 this time (NAS:.90, PS2:.100)
I Hope you can figure out something.
Thanks and bye!
Unfortunately there is nothing of the PS2 (192.168.1.100) .
But ... maybe I know why.
In wireshark go to "Capture options", you need to check the option "Capture packets in promiscuous mode".
(to be able to use promiscuous mode you maybe need admin/root right)
Also, taken from the Faq of wireshark:
Some switches have the ability to replicate all traffic on all ports to a single port so that you can plug your analyzer into that single port to sniff all traffic. You would have to check the documentation for the switch to see if this is possible and, if so, to see how to do this. See the switch reference page on the Wireshark Wiki for information on some switches.
Hm, the option was checked. So even this switch seems not to be a simple hub. I'll try to find one.
Or does anybody know if it is possible to connect the PS2 to my PC (via cross cable) and connect the PC to my network via WLAN, so that the PS2 gets contact to the NAS via my PC? If this is possible, I will be able to capture the traffic.
Sounds complicated, I better try to get a simple hub.
Oh man, all that to get rid of the conversion into ul format.
Yes but it worth it
For what you are trying to do (use PC as gateway) it seems complicated under windows ...
And about a specific settings for one of your two available switch ? Maybe you could configure it to forward all traffic. Or maybe one port is configured for this by default ... maybe looking in the doc/net could provide useful info.
I found out something! OPL can generally access subfolders in the PS2SMB folder!
I had the idea to try the cover feature to check this out. So I created a folder named ART, prepared a cover picture for one of the ul games and copied it into the folder. To my suprise the cover came up when I highlighted the game.
I suggested a rights problem with subfolders and thought it could be a problem with my NAS. But know I think different. What do you think?
Maybe this could help to find out where the problem is.
