Today an article for freeing your mind : how to share over the network between linux and a real amiga. Networking makes the life so simple !

share over the network between IcAROS desktop and Ubuntu

Introduction :


Sharing files over the network is something like an obligation nowadays.

I personnally don’t like Windows, so I won’t speak about this side. I prefer the dark side : linux, especially ubuntu (here 12.04LTS). Anyway, samba is samba, so it should work with every linux distrib.

As we speak about computering @home, we will stay in a VERY SIMPLE config.

So, we have for this example :

– One machine running IcAros 1.5.2-2

– One machine running Ubuntu 12.04LTS

– let’s assume the ubuntu samba server is called “HADES”,

– in a WORKGROUP  called “PHLEGETON”,

– with the IP adress, let’s assume it is “192.168.173“. Ofcourse, you must change this to fit your ones.

– let’s assume the path to share is “/media/data”

– let’s assume the share name will be “styx”

We also have a local user. Let’s assume it is “jess”.

Do you have problems sharing between UBUNTU and ICAROS ? Do you get a strange crash “please insert volume ENV:”, and disk icons disapear after you click on save your network configuration ? You should have a look to this article
