I have a SAMBA share on my local network that I would like to access from my HAIKU computer. I have searched for information in the forums and on HAIKU-OS.org with no luck. Does anybody know how this is done or is it still on the do-do list for HAIKU?
It looks like we do have a samba package now under x86_gcc2
Not sure about it’s usage though. @PulkoMandy might have more info.
We do support NFS however with the mount_nfs command. If you’re attempting to access files on a NAS it seems like the best way at the moment.
I installed the samba package from haikudepot, and can list the samba share with smbclient, I just cannot mount it.
There is a way to access Samba shares until the SMB client is fixed - use mucommander from Guest One’s repo.
It’s a midnight commander/dopus like two paned file manager in Java, but it has support for SMB locations to copy to/from.
Thanks, I’ll give it a try.
It would be nice to eventually have these show up in the Tracker as network volumes.
I tried mucommander, but it will not connect.
That’s a shame - I use it all the time, but perhaps it’s because I have no password for accessing the share.
I got it to work! I was using the wrong workgroup name. This router sets its own workgroup for sharing files from its usb port. Whoot!
