Hi,

I would like to sync/transfer files from my Mac and Z using a samba shared folder and would like to do this over wi-fi. Next I will try to use ZMacSync over WiFi.

So far I can get my Z to recognize my CF WiFi card and I can pick up an IP address from my DHCP server. I connect to my DHCP server thru an wifi AP that is hardwired to the DHCP server.
I can surf the web, get email and connect to my Mac's Personal Web Server.

But I can not connect from my Mac to the Z be it with Samba or FTP.

So my questions are (be aware that I don't know anything about Linux):

1. How can I check if Samba is running?
2. Do I need to have a fix IP address or can I use a dynamic one as I'm doing currently?

I found an article in ZUG which has a listing with a lot of commands and adjustments to configure Samba over WiFi - is all that programming necessary?

Thanks in advance!

Found a way to stop OS X writing .DS_Store files to samba shares.
(this fixed a problem when adding files to a mounted vfat partition)


Open a terminal in OS X 10.4.x, then type:

defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true

then reboot.

Aha! What problem did it solve?
I sometimes have a problem that Mac OS says there's not enough space on the share, although there is. I haven't looked into it deeply enough to know if it has to do with existent or non-existend .DS_Store files, but it could be.
But strangely, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

Will try your fix tonight!

thanks
daniel

No, that is a different bug.

Finder does not go into subdirectories to get the free space of the volume. And the Samba daemon on the Zaurus tells the volume size of /home/samba which is always the Zaurus internal flash. So, even if you insert a CF or SD card with plenty of space, Finder thinks there is only the free space of the internal flash.

Solution: unknown
