    Question How to mount a Windows share

    Hello,

    I've installed Olegs 1.9.2.7 CR3 firmware on my brand new Asus WL500g.
    I now want to mount a Windows share.
    I tried several commands like
    mount -t smbfs -o username=xyz,password=abc //host/share /tmp/mountpoint

    But every time I get the error
    mount: Mounting //host/share on /tmp/mountpoint failed: No such device

    How can I mount the Windows share?
    Do I have to use NFS for that?

    Markus

    I don't have much Linux knowledge, but: Can you mount the share from another Windows machine (perhaps you have a firewall blocking incoming connections...).

    There is no firewall between the WL500g and the windows machine. I have no problem connecting another Windows machine.

    I think he wants to mount a windows share AT his wl500g

    afaik this is not implemented in the WL500g but I could be wrong

    You're absolutely right, this is not implemented.

    If you have a usb pendrive or a hard disk, you can uncompress Jocky's custom firmware 1.2.3.0 on it, and use the full smb set, including smbmount.

    It is working fully. Please read the full tread for info about how to make it work.

    You don't have to flash any new firmware, only get the files on HD

    I was searching for the thread about 'uncompress the firmware' but was not successfull.
    Please give me some hints or a link. Thanks

    Accidently I downloaded WLHDD_1.1.2.8-JockyW-1.0_en.trx and tried to uncompress this. Obviously this cannot work.
    Then I downlaoded 1.1.2.8-custom.zip. This archive has several Samba related binaries in it but no smbmount!
    Is there something like 1.2.3.0-custom.zip including smbmount somewhere?
    The Linux manual page about smbmount says that the kernel must support smbfs. i don't think my Wl500g kernel has that support built in. Is this a problem or does smbmount work anyway?

    Download this one: http://website.wl500g.info/beta/firmware.php?fid=5

    It's a zip file, so use winzip.

    You will be able to use the smbmount on Oleg firmwarze, I'm doing this everyday. Read last posts in jocky's 1.2.1.8 firmware for a how to.

    Code:
    cd /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin 
    mount -o bind /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/etc/ /etc 
    # start Samba 3.0.9 daemon 
    killall -9 nmbd 
    killall -9 smbd 
    ./nmbd -s /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf -D 
    ./smbd -s /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf -D 
    
    
    /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/telnetd -d -l /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/mysh

    This is the file I allready downloaded yesterday. There is no smbmount in it:
    Code:
    /bum/1.1.2.8-custom#cd ../conf
    /bum/conf#find . -name '*smb*'
    ./bin/libsmbclient.a
    ./bin/smbcacls
    ./bin/smbclient
    ./bin/smbcontrol
    ./bin/smbcquotas
    ./bin/smbd
    ./bin/smbpasswd
    ./bin/smbspool
    ./bin/smbstatus
    ./bin/smbtree
    ./usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
    ./usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.3.0.7
    ./usr/local/samba/var/locks/smbd.pid
    ./usr/local/samba/var/log.smbd
    ./usr/local/samba/var/log.smbtree
    ./usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
    I went through the posts about the 1.1.2.8 firmware. There are many posts about smbpassword and about using the Access Point as a Samba server. But there was nothing about using the AP as a Samba client.
    Are we talking about the same thing?
    Can you please E-Mail a copy of your smbmount binary: markus at bubendorf.ch.
    Thanks very much

    You are right, I was talking about smbclient, not smbmount.
    There is no smbmount binary, you can only get access using smbclient.

    Well, I fell for it. I glanced through and ended up downloading that 30mb file for no reason. smbmount would be nice to have though. After all, couldn't it serve, possibly, as a flash drive alternative?

  15. #15
    bumb So there is no chance to mount smbshare at the wl500gx? Would have nice to have against the new wd netcenter; 100mbit sambashare against the pc and a even bigger drive for the wl500gx ftp
