I have a mounted and shared USB drive on my Asus router running tomato I can map to it just fine from both windows and linux machines with and without security. The trouble is that I can not connect to it from my Wii running home brew and WiiMC or MPlayerce. It will work on mplayerce .72 but not newer and the real goal is to work with WiiMC (much nicer) So I have telneted to the router and used vi to change the smb.conf file to try to change security to share thinking that this may be part of the problem. I have then reopened the smb.conf and confirmed that the change was saved. The trouble is that when I go to test samba restart won't work because it says that it is not allowed so I issue a reboot to the router. When that happens it is over writing the smb.conf and changing my settings back. Is there a way to permanently edit smb.conf? How about restart samba without a reboot? Or am I completely off base and need to chase this a different way?
