    You only have server name (NASbox) there, but I guess you also need share name too in every case. //NASBox/yoursharenamewhateveritis

    BTW. documentation to SMBFS can be found on your SYS:MorphOS/Locale/Help/english/SmbFS.txt file.


    I too suspect it's something like a missing share name.
    BUT on Win I just connect to NASbox/ and no particular share. On ftp it's the same I connect o NASbox/.
    Accessing the NASbox by its web interface gives me http://fritz.box/nas?sid=2bbb4563cfd660ed as its address.
    Trying smbfs //NASbox/nas?sid=2bbb4563cfd660ed workgroup NASbox volume NAS devicename smb0 username zylesea password ****** has no success:Wrong ammount of arguments
    Same with //fritz.box/nas?sid=2bbb4563cfd660ed instead of NASbox or IP address.
    Putting the //NASbox/nas?sid=2bbb4563cfd660ed in quotes yields

    SmbFS: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (Share name not found).
    SmbFS: Cannot connect to server (5, Input/output error).
    SmbFS: Could not connect to server (5, Input/output error).

    Accessing the box with ftp, samba, and http are totally different cases (different protocols), and you can't conclude smb's share name from that. Only thing you can see is the host name (machine's address), which clearly is NASbox if you can ping and connect with ftp to that from _MorphOS_. That nas?sid=#? is just for web usage and has nothing to do with smb.

    Hmm.. so if you open Network icon in Windows and then open NASbox, it shows the files direcly there? You don't have to open any share under the first NASbox? No second NASbox folder for example? Do you see computers or does it read "Share" under the icon you access? Can you open Properties of that share? What does it say there in the description?

    Wild guesses to try with smbfs:
    //NASbox/NASbox
    //NASbox/nas

    You could also download some Samba distribution, for example http://aminet.net/package/comm/tcp/samba-3.0.4-morphos and unpack it somewhere (ram: for example), but don't install it.

    Then run in the shell:
    samba/bin/smbclient -L NASbox
    and enter password if needed and see if there are any share names (besides IPC something).

    That was actually a pretty good guess.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. Eventually I got it.

    Here I chose No because I’m pretty certain that the page is gone by now.


    The good old Virus Help Denmark site is still there at the original address http://www.vht-dk.dk ! :)

    And other virus killers are ok too if you use the latest virus definition library (xvs.library).

    I also use "Decrunch Data Files" which works here under MorphOS. I think it's better to decrunch everything you can when checking files. Although I skip the "Decrunch File Archives" to save time.. but of course if you bother you can let it go through all lhas, zips and whatever it unpacks then... but if you only want to check the installed stuff then you can skip that.

    The system vector requester at the start happens also on real Amiga if you have patched some system components, like you usually have. Usually it's nothing to worry as you suspected.

    And if you don't want to write that "sys:" there, you can click right mouse button over the file list or "Volumes" button with lmb to get list of volumes, and select any partition there easily with the mouse.

    Mirrorcopy

    mirrorcopy.readme has useful information, but unfortunately it seems to have two extra characters which causes some programs to think that it's a binary file. Multiview doesn't show anything, Ambient's internal text viewer shows few lines but stops there at the first binary character, and Scribble complains it's a binary file and doesn't open it :) If you open it for example with "More" then you can read it.

    I wouldn't personally use that long device name in HDConfig... it doesn't need to be same you use with the format program (HDConfig creates a "device name" and formatting gives a "volume name" (like DH1: is a device name and System: is a volume name). But I guess it's not that serious to use it like in the blog either...

    If you want to backup MorphOS SDK (which contains lots of soft links) or any other directory containing soft links, you shouldn't use the NOSOFT option. It seems that mirrorcopy didn't work properly with softlinks with some earlier version, but the latest one should handle them just fine and I'd use it without the NOSOFT option just in case to get everything backuped for sure.

    And if you want to check the data integrity of the backupped files, mirrorcheck, dirdiff, or similar program is nice for that :) Broken USB devices could cause NAK timeout or something which may break some transferred data...

    Also if you want to backup to USB device which is in non-amiga format, you could create a SFS formatted image file on the device, and backup there. Here's a tutorial for that http://library.morph.zone/MorphOS_External_USB_Drive_Backup_Guide

    Thanks for the VirusZ post. Helped me find some viruses.. in my 2.4gb I had 30 adf's with bootblock viruses. Have to make sure they are viruses though. Some could be custom bootblocks since they are cracks.

    This is not blog related (yet) but I'm working on an updated icon pack based on Mattahans icons. This time I'm focusing on folders. The goal is to have all the folders needed for at least most MorphOS folders. I've just started working on it, but I'm looking for feedback. What do ya'll think?

    They look great! Would love a blog post giving a step-by-step on how to make my MorphOS environment as lovely as yours.

    Looking forward to the return of your blog one day soon - it's a great resource and good inspiration!
