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!

Is there some option in Samba to prevent the available space calculation in advance (i.e. when copying over Samba, the source computer should not check for available space, but rather begin to copy and only stop when the target reports "no space left")?
Such a mechanism would fix the problem.
