Need advice on setting up SMB OPL 0.8 via ethernet
Need advice on setting up SMB OPL 0.8 via ethernet –
Im trying to acces my shared folder via network (ethernet cable) directly from ps2 to my laptop. Problem is, i cant access it (not any of my games are showing up). Now the tricky part, i cant change the network setup from public to home in my laptop's network and sharing center. I also changed the IP add of my LAN to the same as OPL 0.8.
Funny thing is, i got SMB to work via Laptop connected to router via Wi-Fi, Ps2 connected to router via Ethernet using OPL 0.7. Now, i cant even seem to get things right with Lan, which is the easiest and probably the simplest thing to do LOL.
Gateway 192.168.0.1 ( or whatever is your router ip adress )
IP 192.168.0.xxx ( wired ethernet ip , find out with run -cmd - ipconfig -enter )
right click PS2SMB folder and uncheck Read Only
leave your ethernet card on DHCP ( autmatically obtain IP adress )
Do all these then restart you PC.
That's how i got it to work
In cases where a user is trying to connect directly to his/her PC the user will need to go to the status page of the connection to find the details of the connection.

rolldawg - Open your Network and sharing center. On the left hand side click on change adapter settings. Right click on the local area connection that is connected to the PS2 and click on Status. In this new window click Details.
The IP you see next to IPv4 that is the IP you will use for the PC's IP in OPL. You will also use the Subnet mask located in the Details window for OPL. Change the last 3 numbers of the IPv4 to another number, something like 50 or 100, as long as it doesn't match the PC's.
Tried both suggestions but didnt work LOL. Additional info:
Im on windows 7 running on two networks, one wifi for internet connection and one ethernet for ps2 to access games from laptop hdd (partitioned drive, primary and active and is shared).
For direct connection between your laptop and your ps2 you need a cross-over cable not a standard ethernet cable. Your settings should be like this:
PS2 IP:192.168.1.3 (or whatever you want after 192.168)
Gateway:Your PC IP (must be static like 192.168.1.2)
PC IP:same with gateway
PC Gateway:Your router ip (For example :192.168.1.1)
Most modern NICs and motherboards don't actually require the use of cross-over cables any more since the NIC/motherboard will decide whether or not it needs to cross-over the signals. At least this is how it was with me. Though since he has a laptop, I too would suggest finding a cross-over cable to test to see if this is the problem.
Though if he can get it to work directly with his router than he really doesn't have that much of a problem.
Also, those settings may not work when directly connecting to the storage device like a PC Grey_Wolf. Like I said earlier, the PC is not going to give out the same settings as a router would.
PC IP - 169.254.1.29:445
PS2 IP - 169.254.1.10
Mask - 255.255.0.0
Gate - 169.254.1.29
Share - PS2SMB
I had to use those settings in OPL 0.7 when directly connected to my PC.
Tried both solutions from grey and slays. Nope. not even a single game. I even used the cable i used when i hooked up my ps2 to the router. I am able to ping the ps2 via cmd.
This is what I did! Win7
This is what I did! Win7 –
configured the static IPv4 : 192.168.0.2
Submask : 255.255.255.0(duh!!)
leave the gateway bar empty.
in PS2 : 192.168.0.10
Submask : 255.255.255.0(duh again!! XD)
gateway : 192.168.0.2
Disabled Firewall(Golden Step that you must do) and it worked like Charm!
i've downloaded 9 PS2 Games and they all work including God Of war II DVD9 without touching any Options there in OPL v0.8.(Using SMB o'course) ISOs.
(I even Conquered Both GOW I and GOW II in approx. 2 days without taking a single nap XD crazy me )
hope this helps!
Note: You must turn off the encryption so you can gain access to the PS2SMB Shared Folder/HD.
if you need some other details. i'm here!
Long story made short................-->
1:Make sure firewall is disabled.
2:Make sure your hard drive(External or internal) on which you have ripped your games is formatted to FAT32.
3:Make sure you have granted read permissions to your network users................
If this doesn't work, then buy a ps3.
You are misinformed on #2 above. It is impossible to use FAT32 on an internal PS2 drive (connected by IDE interface).

It is only for external drives connectected by USB that a PS2 uses FAT32.

A PS3 can't run normal games over network either.
And a modern PS3 has no way of running PS2 games at all.
(Which is what the original poster wants to do.)
