Smb Shares In Xbmp
Posted 03 April 2003 - 03:05 AM
Im wrong on how this is setup, but where? I have a "read only" share on Win98, and no password,
1.)What do I put for password. Should I just leave it blank?
2.)Whos username do I put in, the "xbox" or the name of the computer? (I use shared level access)
3.)Am I setting up the rest of the information correctly, partition, workgroup, computer?
Hell if someone can answer me, I'll write the tutorial myself ( that would be great!) But all of the forums, and the XBMP help file don't go into particulars on this topic, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

That SHOULD work, but sometimes the SMB shares seem a little flakey still...

I'll go through this step by step so theres no confusion:
Username: I used the name of my xbox, (theres a tutorial on this if you dont already know it)
Password: I have no password, read only share on Win98, so I left it blank
WorkgroupName: I endered the workgroup name of the computer I was connecting to
ComputerName: Name of computer connecting to, in Win98 you can use winipcfg.exe to find the name of your computer
Partition name: Name of partition/Share on the computer you want access to
Its pretty strait forward from there, just make sure you have setup a share to connect to, or you may be scratching your head for a while. Also as Openwindow said, alot of the information for Win98 may not be required to connect. For myself the finished string looked like this:
My computer's name is wierd f8n3g5, and I'm sharing D drive, its share name is also D. This is not always the case though, Share names can be different from the drive names they represent.
I hope this is usefull to someone.

And yeah, Ozzy is the shit. I mean, Ozzy pre-"The Osbournes". Although that's entertaining too.
