I asked a question in the evox forum on whether evox would some day provide a Samba Server.
My reasoning was that now I have a large HDD in my XBOX, I've off-loaded some videos to it - but would still like to watch them from another PC (for example, the kids might want to watch something on their PC upstairs 'streamed' from the XBOX)
I was told XBMC provides this (a samba server) - I think not, but hope I'm wrong!
Now, I have XBMC installed (currently using 2004-04-19) but I'm sure I've seen nothing about this in the config file.
I've tried connecting to \\192.168.2.111 (my xbox static address) - but not even a sniff.
If there is a way to share from the XBOX via Samba, how would you address / map the shares?

XBMC does not support a Samba server at this point in time.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you know of any app / util / dash replacement that would provide the facility I require?

I believe Linux has an SMB server.

yeh, didn't wanna go that far - although, If there is a suitably 'small' installation that can be executed from say evox ...

i have NOT installed linux on my xbox, but ive installed linux many times on a PC
and ive install gentoo many times on PC's
So for a small install of gentoox, asumming its somewhat like installing on a PC, just install the base install, followed by a system logger, if you choose, then install samba
ul have a small install of gentoo with a samba server, having only samba, base install.. (which is just a few services and basic executables)
Perhaps someone who has installed gentoox can verify/drop what im saying...

I just spotted this... http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/gentoo-share-drive.php
... from the title (Using Gentoo Linux for the XBox to share drives (v0.1)) it looks like it might be what i need.
Anyone done this?
