Your app worked well with snow leopard but apple changed something in mountain lion.
I'm running Mountain Lion with no issues- Apple changed from using standard SMB over to their in-house SMBX protocol in 10.7. Have you tried using Go->Connect to Server in Finder? I can connect to mine with 'smb://TouchPad'.

wow, didn't realize it was that easy so I reinstalled open samba using the tool sambaup. I would like to keep the open samba right now because i can connect now to my wdtv live streaming device from an external drive I have hooked up via pogoplug.

But the wdtv is not connecting to the mac--something about my regular mac logon being connected to too many groups to work with samba. I tried solving this by connecting via Guest logon but not working right. So i have to trouble shoot this.

Your link did not help me connect to my touchpad. I'm wondering if I have to type a different type string into the mac to find the touchpad or if once i solve the guest log on issue, I will be able to use your link.

The string should be 'smb://<Device Name>', where <Device Name> corresponds to the value set in the Preferences menu of WiFi File Sharing. I'm afraid I can't help with the usage of open samba though, I've never used it.

Says server does not exist or is not available.
Yet here's the cool thing. I can see the TouchPad on the tv screen via wd live streaming box. I just played 1 1/2 hour video and some music.
So the mac must be passing the touchpad to the wdtv live streaming, yes? Or is the Touchpad connecting directly to the wdtv live via easy samba and the wifi network?

I'll have to work on why the mac isn't seen by wdtv live and why the touchpad isn't seen by the mac.

All in all I come out ahead as the functionality to the wdtv live is more important to me right now.

Both should be able to work & coexist at the same time, samba works by broadcasting it's availability as opposed to picking a device and connecting to it. You could try 'smb://<DeviceName>/Public'? The problem evidently lies with the mac somewhere, but I'm not sure what it is. What happens when you open Terminal.app and run 'smbtree -N'?

Interesting.

The TouchPad connects with the "public" string you wrote above and the Mac gives me a choice of my account with password or guest account with no password. (Both work).

When I run smbtree-N, I get command not found.

When I run smbtree, I get a pop-up box asking me if I want to allow incoming connections through firewall.

Still curious as to why the mac won't connect to wdlive streaming.

Just tried installing this last night via Preware (including dependencies) but can't get it to work -- I can't open "preferences" within the app to tweak workgroups etc etc etc either.
Can someone let me know what the correct install procedure is through Preware or some troubleshooting? Have looked through this thread but a lot of the issues appear to be down to not installing Samba first followed by the dev hoping to fix the install procedure with an update...
Running an up-to-date Pre3.
Thanks, appreciated.

There needs to be a space between 'smbtree' and '-N', you're getting that error because there is no 'smbtree-N' command, -N is an argument to smbtree that tells it to skip username/password authentication.

Being unable to open Preferences means that the app is having problems with the samba service. I'm guessing that the wifi icon in the app isn't lighting up either? Can you post/pastebin the contents of /etc/ samba/smb.conf?

Thanks. I solved the problem of mac being displayed on WDLive by using a workaround i found on a forum which advised to check "force unknown acl user" in the advanced server configuration for SMBUP.

Why that works I don't know but have not had a problem for the past few weeks.

Gladly but I'm not so hot on the inner workings of webOS, if you can tell me how I'll post it, thanks. And yes, the icon isn't lighting up either.
Cheers.

Open Internalz
Navigate to /etc/samba
Open smb.conf
Copy all of the text and paste it in here
???
Profit!

Ahh, okay so this is my first foray into Preware and everything else so didn't have Internalz.
As it happens I uninstalled Samba/WiFi FS for the 2nd time, re-installed and it works (?)! Didn't get it to show up as a network share but also didn't have time to play about with it. Confident that I can get the networking side of things fixed though.
Ingenious implementation regards exhibition mode, kudos!

Haha, excellent news! Sometimes the samba install does go a bit funky, so it was probably that. Thanks for the compliment, and enjoy!

Posting a more detailed description of your issue would be a good place to start. What -precisely- do you mean by not starting?

Hi, ShiftyAxel!
I also have Veer 2.1.2, and WFS doesn't start. It shows new card with flashing wifi icon and nothing more.
Tried to reinstall few times - no luck.

Seems that something is wrong with EasySamba installation. I've checked files mentioned in log, /opt/etc/samba/smb.conf is present, /etc/samba/smb.conf is not.
Here is my smb.conf:
smb.conf
[global]
netbios name = DEVICENAME
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = DEVICEDESCRIPTION
security = share
guest account = nobody
interfaces = eth0, lo
log level = 0

[Public]
comment = Public
path = /media/internal/public
available = true
writable = true
browseable = true
guest ok = true

[Internal]
comment = Internal Storage
path = /media/internal
available = true
writable = true
browseable = false
guest ok = true

[Root]
comment = Root
path = /
available = false
writable = false
browseable = false
guest ok = true

[ext3fs]
comment = ext3fs
path = /media/ext3fs
available = false
writable = false
browseable = true
guest ok = true

Unfortunately, my Linux kung-** is limited to this. Would appreciate your help.

As far as I understand your question, there were no error messages during installation.

This is a great app, thanks!

However, I've been having problems with large files transfers (~700+ MB). From reviewing the thread, it seems like this issue is quite common. I was wondering if anyone has found a solution?

Thanks!
