That's cool and yet a bummer :'( at the same time. I didn't know it was available. Oh well it was fun finding out that it worked.
Anyways for those that want to do it the long way instead of just installing samba on the OSD here are the instructions:
This was written with Ubuntu in mind:
1) Decide if you want to use ftp or ssh to connect to the OSD. You will then need to install
the software on the OSD.
* For FTP, see the following article: http://forums.neurostechnology.com/index.php?topic=8877.0
* For ssh, see the following article: http://forums.neurostechnology.com/index.php?topic=9251.0
Once you can ssh or ftp to your OSD, it's time to set up the Linux computer that
will act as the middle-man:
2) Install a FUSE based filesystem (FTP or ssh):
(FUSE is already in the Linux 2.6+ kernels)
a) If you installed bftpd on your OSD, install CurlFtpFS on your linux computer:
# apt-get install curlftpfs
b) If you installed dropbear on your OSD, install SSHFS on your linux computer:
# apt-get install sshfs
3) Make the mount point to the OSD:
# mkdir /osd
# chown 777 /osd
4) Create and set a password for a user that will connect (osduser):
# adduser osduser fuse
# passwd osduser
5) Allow fuse to let anyone mount. Edit /etc/fuse.conf and add the line:
6) Reboot the linux computer
7) Mount the filesystem.
a) If using CurlFtpFS:
# curlftpfs email@example.com:/ /osd
b) If using SSHFS:
# sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org:/ /osd -o allow_other
8 ) Install and configure Samba on the Linux computer.
# apt-get install samba smbfs
Add the following to the /etc/samba/smb.conf file:
comment = osd
path = /osd
public = yes
writable = yes
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
force user = nobody
force group = nogroup
9) Match the samba password for the user you created earlier:
# smbpasswd osduser
10) I like to restart samba:
# /etc/init.d/samba restart
11) Connect to the linux computer from the windows computer
Start | Run | \\192.168.1.100
12) Enter your "osduser" and password. You should see the network share "osd" and your in.
13) Once your connected, in MS Explorer you can go to "Tools / Map Network Drive" and set
a drive letter.
Note: I've seen various permission issues in the past where I've had to do some of the following:
* chmod 666 /dev/fuse
* double check the /etc/samba/smb.conf for anything entered incorrectly.
* make sure you have the user_allow_other in /etc/fuse.conf
