Networking

Postby Steff » Tue Jun 26, 2018 12:11 am

Hello peeps. Having come back to the old faithful, is there a method of being able to connect the X5000 to a Windowzzz system using LAN? Also, i need to connect to my Canon printer using WiFi? or is all this way beyond the scope of the X5000?

Thanks in advance.l

Not a modern Windows system. Microsoft changed their version of Samba after XP so now it doesn't work any more.

There is a thread about USB-Wireless adaptors here: http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3788.

I can access a share on Windows 10 with smbfs from my X1000

I believe it's possible to make Windows accept working with an older protocol of SMB, so connection with SMBFS is again possible, but I'm not sure of the details.

Personally, I use a NAS as "go-between" when I need to transfer stuff.

About the printer: I guess it's only the printer which wants to use WiFi, and that it would end up being an IP address on the LAN like all the others. If so, the Amiga doesn't care whether the printer connects with or without wires. Just address it like you would any network printer (i.e. you need something like lpr.device).

Best regards,

Niels

smbfs is being worked on. Current beta version works with Windows 7 at least. Didn't try Win 10 yet.

More info plus beta download there: https://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread.ph ... ost1198976 (mostly German; login required)

That's good to hear. The last version released on OS4Depot was faster, but didn't work on my NAS - it would only write a few bytes.

Hopefully, a new version will address this.

iirc correctly Olsen was looking for people who got this exact behaviour (dunno if he still is).
You should get in contact with him and help iron that out (or maybe just check that it is already gone).

Depends on the version you are using, but this should get you started:

On Windows:
1) Find out what your computer's "name" is or change it to your liking in the system properties
2) Find out what your workgroup is called or chage it to your liking in the properties
3) Just for the test case, go to C:, create a dir ("Share" e.g.)
4) Set that directory to be shared in the Properties (make it read-/writeable for everyone)
5) Important: Set a password for your user (you don't need a user per se, Admin will do, but will HAVE to use a password, otherwise smbfs will refuse to connect)

Now, on the amiga side, use this in a shell:
smbfs CACHE=256 WORKGROUP=yourwg USER=yourusername DEVICE=SMBFSPC: VOLUME=WindowsShare: SERVICE=//yourpcname/Share/ PASSWORD=yourpw
- Don't "run" smbfs for now, just let it run and see if there are errors
- There are more options you could use, but keep it as simple as possible for now to see if you get a connection at all.
btw: i tried every single option there is, none really matter except the CACHE which will speed up access in some cases.

If everything works out, there should be a new "dir" on Workbench popping up called "WindowsShare", it can be accessed like any other dir.
