smb share on linux with amiga 1200 and easynet pcmcia eth

I’ve made an article about this for IcAROS, so, now, one is needed for Amiga 1200 classic.

The best way to surf the network, download programs, … today with an amiga 1200 classic is its original case, is buying an easynet pcmcia card :

For me network is better than sharing usb keys, or connecting the internal CF card to a slot on your PC (that you still can do ofcourse).

The problem

with normal smb conf configuration (look at this article : guest not allowed, a user and a password, I get this behavior :

share over the network between IcAROS and Ubuntu

Introduction :

Sharing files over the network is something like an obligation nowadays.

I personnally don’t like Windows, so I won’t speak about this side. I prefer the dark side : linux, especially ubuntu (here 12.04LTS). Anyway, samba is samba, so it should work with every linux distrib.

As we speak about computering @home, we will stay in a VERY SIMPLE config.

So, we have for this example :

– One machine running IcAros 1.5.2-2

– One machine running Ubuntu 12.04LTS

– let’s assume the ubuntu samba server is called “HADES”,

– in a WORKGROUP  called “PHLEGETON”,

– with the IP adress, let’s assume it is “192.168.173“. Ofcourse, you must change this to fit your ones.

– let’s assume the path to share is “/media/data”

– let’s assume the share name will be “styx”

We also have a local user. Let’s assume it is “jess”. Continue reading “share over the network between IcAROS and Ubuntu”
