I would like to mount my Zaurus on my linux desktop. I use the command

mount -t smbfs //192.168.129.201/home/zaurus /mnt/zaurus

and get the message

Error connecting to 192.168.129.201 (Connection refused)
6225: Connection to 192.168.129.201 failed
SMB connection failed

I suspect that I have to modify a file on the Zaurus identifying my linux desktop so that the smb server knows to permit the mount, but I can't find such a file. I found /home/root/usr/lib/samba/smb.conf, but I don't see anything relevant in there.

Ah, I see what you mean. I was using the IP address assigned to eth0, which is not the interface to the Zaurus. When I use the IP address assigned to that interface (usb0), pinging the Linux box from the Zaurus works fine. Thanks again. I'm rolling now.
