Default SMBMounter Updated to V1.0

News from Daedalus via amigaworld.net


SMBMounter has been updated, and now includes all the features I originally planned to include, so I've bumped the version to 1.0. This version includes many bugfixes, improvements and new features, and is available to download from robthenerd.com.


Changes for this version include:

- Ability to list and select servers on the local network, and any shares they contain for easy creation and editing of shares
- Better (though still not 100%) support for MorphOS
- Font setting changes no longer require SMBMounter to restart
- Ability to suppress error requesters when hidden. Important for WBStartup automount use when a share might not be available
- Many bug fixes (volume names with spaces, tiny requesters, font size issues...)
- Improved error handling and requester information
- Support for scroll wheel in OS4

SMBMounter is also in the upload queue on Aminet and OS4depot.

A big thank you to all the betatesters here and elsewhere who helped me out with this!

@hooligan

I'm afraid the first answer is no. SMBFS does not support Windows Vista or 7 shares (more specifically, Microsoft stopped supporting the type of shares that SMBFS can deal with). As far as Samba is concerned, MorphOS has a newer version than OS4. While they both still work fine, they could probably do with being updated...

Too shame, XP is a dying breed... I don't know anyone running it anymore, except myself at work (which will change 1st of march)

Evidently someone has managed to get shares to work, I tried to repeat but had no success. Anyone want to take a crack at it?

There are some settings changes to make in the local security policies. I have to get a lot of network scanners which scan to SMB to work with Server 2008 machines (same code base as Windows 7,) said scanners using old out-of-date versions or derivatives of Samba.

As LoadWB says, it needs some changes in local security policies.

I managed to see my Win7 laptop and my Win7 Home-Server from my Amiga using SMBFS (the manual way) but despite being able to see every file and folder, everything I copied to Amigas hard drive was corrupted and bigger in size! Didn't have much time to troubleshoot it but I will certainly try again soon and report back with my findings.

Yep, XP is on its way out, though it works for me for anything I need so I've no reason to upgrade yet - and Samba on Linux is still supported 100%... I've seen those registry tweaks around the place, and most people have had the same results - corrupted files. It seems that the newer SMB implementation is adding extra headers or something.

Maybe someone, some time will get around to fixing SMBFS - the source is on SourceForge. That sort of code is beyond me I'm afraid, but who knows - I might give it a stab some time...

Well, I'M still running XP on all my machines... Half for older games and half because I'm a cheap SOB who won't cough up the $$$ to upgrade.

I haven't worked with Samba shares in a long long time, but I recall using a 3rd party protocol on my Windows machines instead of the default. I have no clue if there is something like that for Vista/XP, but it might be worthwhile looking into...

Yep just tried it again some minutes ago.
- SMBClient from Samba logs just fine in my Win7 laptop and I can get files (via get command) and they works perfectly.
- SMBFS logs just fine in my Win7 laptop and I can see the virtual drive and it's folders/files but when I copy or try to open files from there they get corrupted.

I'm just glad at least SMBClient works. Dunno if there's another option to setup in SMBFS (in order to fix the file corruption upon access) but checking out the doc file haven't gave any enlightenment.
