Recently, I compiled AJZaurusUSB on my mactel machine and was able to get my Collie and mac to see each other. While seeing each other is great, I need a way to exchange files. Using my digital camera as a card reader for my mac is getting old. There are posts everywhere talking about mounting a Z as an SMB filesystem, but very little documentation.

As an attempt to do this, I installed Samba on my Collie and then tried to mount it on my mac as an SMB filesystem using the directions from the original AJZaurusUSB driver web site. This did not work. When I installed Samba I got a postprocessor error code stating that some directories and files (I think it was rc.d) did not exist. Yet when I looked for these files and directories, they where there. Also, as samba loads after reboot, it aborts. When I try to load my Z on the mac side with the IP number, it says that the volume does not exist.

So my question is: What are the steps I need to take to accomplish this? Is there good documentation for a mac that I missed? Is there some other software that needs to be installed or is there another version of samba (the version I used was: samba_3.0.14a-r12_arm.ipk from the OZ feeds) that I should be using?

Thanks,

Hi,
I think it depends a lot on the ROM you are using. If you use a SharpROM, there is already a SMB server included and you don't have to install anything. When USB is connected, the ps -ef sould include

root 1792 1 0 07:03 ? 00:00:00 smbd -D -l /dev/null
root 1794 1 0 07:03 ? 00:00:00 nmbd -D -l /dev/null

On the Mac, Finder has a SMB client. Go to "connect to server" and type "smb://ZAURUS/". This should find the ZAURUS though the SMB name lookup. Alternatively, you can replace the IP address. There come up two dialogs asking for passwords etc. You an leave them open and say ok.

Hope this helps,

I presume you already have network connectivity between your Mac and Z, since you can "see" each other.

You may want to edit your /etc/samba/smb.conf to see if everything is setup right.

Then you may need to start the samba daemon. /etc/init.r/samba start (or is it init.d?)

Thereafter, try talking to your Z via samba client from your Mac.
