I won't embellish further on the Mionet issue here, seems like most everyone feels the same way - I would like to string up the person who thought ithis was a good idea for a MyBook drive though!!
In any case - I could really use some help.
Like most people here I decided to get rid of Mionet, and would like to access this drive directly from explorer mapping a drive (Win XP). I've read through most of the posts surrounding this issue, and still am having problems ==> I was never able to map a network drive at all…
- created an ssh connection, which works fine.
- disabled mionet
- create public shares after removing mionet
- ping the drive without issues
- Removed all firewalls
- Confirmed Samba is running
But for some reason, I cannot access it through windows explorer, or internet explorer. I am mapping drives as follows: \\192.168.2.7\<share_name>
Error message is "The Network Path \\192.168.2.7\<share_name> could not be found"
I have disabled all firewalls (Windows and Proventia)
If I try using the option "Connect to a Network Server" (in Map Network Drive window) the error message is "The folder appears to be invalid, please choose another"
So I would normally think that there is a network issue, but sicne I can ping the drive, and connect via SSH without issues, I'm a bit confused.
Can anyone help???
Barryke: Could be a chmod issue. I propose doing a chmod +r /shares/internal/sharename +R but haven't got that much linux insight to be honest.
mosndup: Yes it is a chmod issue, I had the same problem yesterday, I did a chmod on the DataVolume to solve it.
