Thread: Netatalk for Apple Shares?

  1. #31
    How can I edit the Samba config file in System Command?
    I can only view it using cat /etc/smb.conf but I'm not able to edit it.
    Please help me someone.

    encrypt passwords = yes
    preserve case = yes
    short preserve case = yes

    path = /opt/share/share
    writable = yes
    force user = admin

    $ flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable
    i do it as you suggest in your post and it works great but after reboot it still goes to encrypt passwords = no and i have to edit the file every time. it seems that this saving to router flash doesn't work!! somebody suggested to add a line to /use/local/.files pointing to /etc/smb.conf and it dosn't work as well after restart.

    what am i doing wrong?

    What would be steps before this solution (described below) on fresh install of Olegs firmware ( ?

    1. I understand that I would attach usb flash or usb hdd formated in ext3? How big should this drive/partition be ?
    2. As what share shall I mount it? /opt ? Is /opt the full track I should use for ounting?
    3. What packages should I install prior to avahi ? Eg. ipkg ? On my system I can find only - is it ok?
    4. At what stage i do flash commit?

    Samba and OSX Lion - no more file sharing


    In new OSX Lion they have changed samba service and the one configured acording to wengi's tutorial no longer works. The native solution for OSX sharing is netatalk. I have installed it with ipkg but I have no clue how to configure it to make it work and start automatically after restart? Some users suggest to add something like a bonjour deamon call avahi, which after install does't start (it says there is no user).

    So my question is:
    1) is it possible to configure samba to work with OSX Lion (on the router side)
    2) if not, anybody managed to set afp (netatalk) file sharing for OSX
