Problem de jour......Networking

Here is my problem ( HELP!!! :slight_smile: ), I have a QNX running on a
Heidelberg press. I need to know how to configure the networking so
that users can submit their work via a network shared file system ( NFS
or CIFS )



Wade

CIFS would be configured in the same way as on Linux (read the docs for
Samba). NFS is the same story, you only have to make sure NFS server is
started. General networking configuration would also be practically
identical to Linux (netstat, ifconfig, route, etc).

Does this mean you didn’t like the much easier suggestion I made in
comp.os.qnx on Tuesday, Igor? :frowning:

Incidentally, asking me to “read the docs for Samba” would be like asking
most people to eat Chichester Cathedral…I think the information on QSSL’s
documentation page for fs-cifs is probably sufficient for those of us who
are allergic to Microsoft products. Wade’s mileage may vary. For NFS, look
for fs-nfs2.

I did not see it… only seen the question here.

Samba is not exactly a Microsoft product. SMB protocol is, but then fs-cifs
must have cause you the same allergy since it uses the protocol. The reason
I suggested Samba is that Wade asked for a way to sumbit work TO the press,
not ask for work FROM the press. The fs-cifs would let you see Windows
drives on the press, I assumed he wanted the opposite thing - to see QNX
drive on Windows.

For NFS, look
for fs-nfs2.

Windows does not have native NFS support, so NFS would also require
installing extra software on Windows machines.

As a point of trivia (which this board seems to appreciate), if it’s of
any confort, SMB substantially pre-dates Microsoft’s involvement in
networks. That they still use it is a remnant of the OS/2 days.
