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.


Thanks Raziel . I will give it a try very soon. :D

You should get in contact with him and help iron that out (or maybe just check that it is already gone).


Thanks, I'll drop him a line. I'm in the middle of moving house right now and have to re-build my network (just got Internet connected the other day, but only to one room).

Just goes to show how old smbfs is, and when I last updated it: my sourcery.han.de e-mail address, which I first used in 1990/1991, became completely unusuable due to spam by 2014 which is when I reluctantly gave it up :(

The current smbfs source code is available at https://github.com/obarthel/amiga-smbfs ... evelopment, in case you might want to build and test it all by yourself.

But I'd be happy to share the current smbfs build with you. Just drop me a line :-)

You could setup a FTP server on your Windows machine to get the files needed?

Yes - a FileZilla Client & Server on Windozz and pFTP or AmiFTP on Amiga works for me. Have also tried Amiga Cloud Handler (http://aminet.net/package/comm/tcp/AmigaCloudHandlers) and give Google print (http://aminet.net/package/driver/print/gcp_device) a try as well :-)

You could do that, then again

smbfs puts the share as a "partition" on your workbench and lets you access it as part of the system.

There is something similar for ftp /ftpmount), but it has tons of drawbacks compared to smbfs, the main one for me is the fact that it is single threaded, means you can either read or write, but not both, which makes accessing it far too much eighties

I agree, your right on that.

I did mention FTP just as an alternative to get the files needed :-)
A torrentsync client could also be a nice alternative... just dump files in any machine folder, and it gets synced to the Amiga)

Something like Resilio https://www.resilio.com/

I sync (oh boy, i'm so bad at the pun game) there already is something similar for AmigaOS4 ... FolderSync2
