Saving the last view point is on my list of things to do after comercial skip.
Hopefully in about 6 weeks.
One thing I need to do is learn how to set up an NFS server under windows or figure out another way to connect to my shared folders with the config file. I've been reading and researching for the file sharing solution but my tiny mind does not seem to grasp the concept of mounting windows directories and file shares hosted on NT2K machines using the mini linux running on the MVP.
I've seen an example of how to mount a windows XP media share but I've not spied any NT2k examples.
I checked in some updates this past weekend that get the CIFS streaming
performance up to par for Windows servers. (Verified w/ WXP-Pro)
You will need to get a mvpmc binary from the DailyBuilds download page.
Also, updated the Windows-HOWTO with a "Configuring a CIFS server"
CIFS shares are supported by NT2K but I don't have a 2K box so haven't been able to test it.
I think the issue for 2K is how to setup windows & mvp to make the share authentication happy.
Found this link on enabling the W2K guest account:http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;q258938
If you can't mount the share with the guest account then maybe create
a special windows userid.
Pass the info with mount.cifs as follows:
Let me know your results. If you find a recipe that works I'll update the howto.
If not, I'll try to get a userid verified share mounted from WXP. (should be the same for W2K).
