mounting remote drive on NSLU2

Post by timwiser » Sun Jun 29, 2008 6:06 pm

I've got a Windows 2003 server that I want to mount as a drive on my NSLU2. I understand that I need to use the mount command but I'm no UNIX bod so don't really know what I'm doing in this environment. Could anyone advise on how I go about doing this?

My server is on 192.168.1.1 and the share is called MUSIC. Everyone has READ access on the share and Everyone has FULL CONTROL on the files themselves.

Any assistance would be great.


Tim.

Got this working now. I had to reflash my Slug with Unslung 6.10 firmware and then run ipkg update to get the new optware packages.
Once that was done I ran something like smbmount //192.168.1.1/Music /mnt/music -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD

That did the trick.

Unfortunately I've now got another problem in that despite adding /mnt/music to the list of drives that Twonky should index, it doesn't seem to be doing that.

Tuned out that this seems to be a limitation with Twonky. I experimented with MediaTomb and it indexed the mounted drive just fine.

Try to mount the directory to a mountpoint in /share

mkdir /share/music

smbmount //192.168.1.1/Music /share/music -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD

Then in Twonky, select the "/music" folder on the initial pop-up screen when you click "Browse".

Worked for me.
