I need help resolving a problem with RTP, qnet and samba.
I have two generic PCs set up with clean installations of QNX RTP 6.1a.
They both have their default network configurations, modified only to use
DHCP and to give them unique hostnames. On boot, qnet /net directories
appear and the hostnames of the machines are there. I have a third machine
that is an embedded system also running qnet in QNX 6.1a except it’s a
command-line only system (no photon). It’s hostname also appears in the
/net directories something like this:
cpu1 middleman master
cpu1 = embedded system
middleman = samba server
master = my dev machine
I want to share these qnet directories to windows machines with samba. I’ve
installed samba 2.2.3a (and am currently regressing to samba 2.2.2) and I am
able to set up shares to, for instance, /net/cpu1/mnt/hd1/data_dir and then
map to a drive letter on a Windows machine.
The problem arises when both my dev machine ‘master’ and the samba machine
‘middleman’ are both on at the same time. If the two photon-enabled RTP
systems are both up doing this:
ls: Network dropped connection on reset (/net/cpu1)
If I shut down either of the RTP systems, the remaining system can use
/net/cpu1 correctly. What does “Network dropped connection on reset
(/net/cpu1)” mean? How can I resolve this?
