    i just bought a NAS(NSLU2) for my home-network. I flashed the NSLU2 with Openwrt/Kamikaze, installed/setup an SAMBA-server and everything is working fine so far. The only thing that i couldn't manage to work is that tomato's builtin rstats cannot write to the cifs-share on the NSLU2. When i make a ssh-session (with putty) to the WRT54/Tomato then i have full-access to the cifs share on the NSLU2. Also from my windows-pc i can connect and have full-access to the share on the NSLU2. With the original firmware from Linksys for the NSLU2 i can connect to the share on the NAS and rstats is working perfecly. Does anyone have an idea ?

    after a lot more testing and have contact with Jon about this i figured out that the problem is related to samba. By default the openwrt packages for the nslu-enviroment only have samba ver 2.X implemented so i switched to the optware-packages and installed samba ver 3.x and now my WRT54/Tomato can save its bw-history/rstats to the nslu2 :) But its much more resource hungry :wink:

    About 9 months ago I took my slug to the next level and flashed it with Debian 4.0
    Everything works great. Never looked back to unslung, openwrt or any of the other firmwares I have tried.
