SAMBA in QNX 6.2.1 - Need help!

Hello to all!

I´m newer in QNX and Linux too.
Someone can tell me some steps to start samba on QNX 6.2.1??? :cry:

I have downloaded the 2.0.7 from web, after ungzipped, I did execute “./configure” on the folder. And “make” and “make install”.

And I did the smb.conf too.
But it not works.

Some commands how “service smb start/restart” are not doing nothing on Terminal. It´s say “service: no found”. (and “netconfig”???)

Am I forggoting something??


Get the binary from the repository (or the 3rd-party CD).


As Mario suggested it’s far easier to download the working executables from the 3rd party Cd.

Even after you do that, you will still need to start the daemon processes smbd and nmbd either by hand or at boot time in your rc.local file. The ‘service not found’ message is probably because those deamons are not running.



I have downloaded and installed the package from Repository. It works!

So I put this code on “smb.conf”

path = /home/shared
browseable = yes
writable = yes
guest ok = yes

but the pc with windows do not having access.
Message says “The account do not have permission to log-on in this workstation.”

Must I add users too, for public folders?

I have changed my “smb.conf”

Now the windows pc open a dialog, and it says:

User:\convidado (I think that “convidado” in english qnx says “anyone”)
Password: (empty)

netbios name = samba
security = share
server string = Share

comment = PublicFolder
path = /home/shared
public = yes
read only = no
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

Must I create a file of passwords now, or change the smb.conf?

that´s all right! =)

samba is really working now
that’s my conf

netbios name = Servidor Samba
security = user
server string = Samba
domain logons = yes
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

comment = Servidor
path = /home/shared
public = yes
read only = no
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
valid users = root
create mask = 0770
directory mask = 0700

after it I made the passwords file, and added the root user.

really thanks for Tim and Marcio!!
see ya!
