cosmosex shared drive not working

Post by exxos » Mon Jul 01, 2019 10:43 am

I had this all setup last year, but connecting it back up... nope..

The shared drive is on my PC, and //CHRIS//SHAREFOLDER does bring up the folder on my PC.. but //192.168.0.2/SHAREFOLDER doesn't ? The IP address if correct for my PC.. but I assume this is why cosmo is failing to access the folder..

..anyone any ideas what's going on ?

I had the same problem, and I think it may have been after an update to the latest firmware. Under disk shares I changed one of the options (I don't remember which) that chnaged the type of file sharing in use and I was able to connect to my share again.

I'll see if I can find out which option it was.

I had the same problem, but I am running a FreeNAS server at home which is configured as a Samba4 domain controller for authentication. In my past situation (Samba3 server) I could login with the CosmosEX and access my shares. Now, with Samba4 the authentication protocols have changed and older protocols are not supported anymore....., resulting in not being able to access my shares. I had to make a domain policy, in which I enabled those older protocols, and now it's working again...
My collection: 1040 STE, TOS 2.06, 4 mb, CosmosEx - 520 STFM, TOS 1.04, 4 mb, Blitter, CosmosEx - 520 STFM, TOS 1.04, 4 mb - 1040 STF, TOS 1.04, 1 mb, Gotek - Amiga 1200 with Blizzard 1220/4 - Amiga 500 + ACA500 - Amiga 500 + TF530, 1 mb chipram hack.

Atari 8 bit: 800XLF, stock - 600XL, Ultimate 1 mb, Sophia RGB - 130XE, 320 kb, Sophia RGB

Sinclair stuff: 3x Spectrum 48KB, Clones: Harlequin, JS128, Nuvo128 and Issue3B replica.

Ultimate64, a few C64 breadbins and Pi1541 for storage.

Since I got rid of the older version of SMB on my windows machines it no likely the shares, but annoyingly still won't connect even on my old Readynas that uses the old version.

I'm updating the firmware on the ST, see what happens.. though it got the latest update, so its not like its a network error, just cosmo refuses to "see" the shared drive for some reason :(

I transfer with Net USB and UIP Tool and then use Megafile 44/SyQuest 44 drives to move stuff around to the other 7 machines. I never got around to setting up the shared drive on the CosmosEX (I have an original ACSI version).

I should give it a try one of these days. I have two more of the 3.0 version that has yet to be delivered (after 1 year and 4 months of waiting).
ST: TT030 10/32m; Falcon 030 14m(2); MSTe 4m; MST 4m(3); MST 4m AdSpeed; 1040STf 4m(4); ST 4m(2); MF 44 w/SCSI2SD(3); MF 30(3); MF30 w/Drem

8-Bit: 320XE w/Ultraspeed+/FIXXL; 320XE; 130XE w/Ultimate 1m; 600XL w/Ultimate 1m; 800XL w/Omnimon XL/Boss XL/Omniview XL; 800 w/Incognito; 800 48K; Black Box Enhanced(3); 1050 Super Archiver II; 1050 Happy(2); XF551 360K(2); XF551 720K; HD Tower 480m
