Thread: mount-point with WL-HDD

  1. #1

    mount-point with WL-HDD

    I try to share the internal hdd of the wl-hdd with my local network.
    I read the tutorials to install ipkg packages and samba.
    It's ok with an usb external hdd, but i can't see the internal harddrive.

    df
    Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/root 3008 3008 0 100% /
    /dev/discs/disc0/part1 33996740 40560 32229196 0% /opt

    does the internal hdd work with /opt as mount-point?

    thanks

    When you disconnect your usb drive and give the command df, you will probably see also "/dev/discs/disc0/part1" ,with my wlhdd, that's my drive......
    Otherwise you have to mount it?
    And what firmware are you using? Otherwise start of with the original fw or jockyw's fw. Is a bit simpler.

    I have upgraded asus 1.2.3.4 with 1.9.2.7-6b by Oleg

    does the wl-hdd work with :mount /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt ?
    and share works (writeable) with windows explorer ?
    thank you

    Yes, why shouldn't? Just follow the tutorials on macsat.com en start with the tut about ipkg packaging. Then your drive will be mounted, partitioned, formatted etc.

    Attention: in samba tut is only smbd command mentioned, you need also nmbd command to actually SEE you shares in you network neighborhood. (It took me 2 days to figure that out.)

    Thanks for your help
    I followed the tutorials on mascat.com :
    - ipkg package system
    - windows network / Samba

    I started nmbd manuelly and i can see my share with XP. but i can't read or write.
    in ftp mode i can't see the share.

    What is the exactualy command for start nmb in S97Samba ?
    How can i read and write my share ?

    In your smb.conf must be something like:
    [Share]
    path = /opt/{name of folder}
    writeable = yes
    browseable = yes

    With ls -al you can see permissions on files/folders and with chmod you can change this.

    What I put in S97samba was just: nmbd -D

    For ftp, follow the macsat ftp guide, I didn't set it up yet

    Remark: I'm no expert, this few things I picked up along the way.

    Now, with your help, Samba works very well.

    thank you very much again ebk71.
