Hello, I am running Tomato Firmware v1.28.8754 ND USB vpn3.6 on Linksys WRTSL54GS. I have attached an NTFS formatted USB harddisk which is configured to be automatically detected and mounted as a SAMBA share. The share name is "MediaShare" Router IP is 192.168.10.1 The SAMBA version built in tomato as reported is Samba 2.0.10-security-rollup. I have another NAS Device on the same network which is WD Mybook World Edition (MBWE) (Blue Ring 500GB) IP is 192.168.10.10. I have enabled the SSH busybox access to this NAS device. I am trying to mount the shared SAMBA share on the router to a shared folder location on the MBWE . I have tried numerous options and various combination of the samba utilities on the MBWE , but somehow the share on the router refuses to be mounted with varying errors. I have loaded and tried with all possible arguments using smbmount, smbfs, mount -t smbfs utilities to mount the router share, however it ends with varying errors like Code: Can't get /etc/mtab~ lock filesmbmnt failed: 1 Code: cannot mount on /shares/internal/PUBLIC/ms: Input/output error smbmnt failed: 1 The only success is that I am able to get is when using smbclient on the MBWE to inquire status of SAMBA running on the linksys router Code: [root@MyBookWorld ~]# smbclient -L 192.168.10.1 added interface ip=192.168.10.10 bcast=192.168.10.255 nmask=255.255.255.0 Password: Domain=[HOME] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.10-security-rollup] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- MediaShare Disk MediaShare IPC$ IPC IPC Service (WRTSL54GS) Server Comment --------- ------- AIRMAX WRTSL54GS Using the smbclient command line, I am able to log in the SAMBA share remotely to browse its contents, which appear fine Code: [root@MyBookWorld bin]# smbclient \\\\192.168.10.1\\MediaShare Enter root's password: Anonymous login successful Domain=[HOME] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.10-security-rollup] smb: \> ls .

Only the remote directory browsing using smbclient works. The dmesg | tail on the MBWE side gives varying errors like Code: <3>smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported <3>smbfs: failed to load nls 'iso8859- It is strange since I have loaded the smbfs module correctly on MBWE and is reported by the lsmod output. Somehow the SAMBA mount from MBWE is not handshaking with the SAMBA share on Tomato. The SMB.conf file on tomato is as follows : Code: [global] interfaces = br0 bind interfaces only = yes workgroup = HOME netbios name = AirMax server string = WRTSL54GS guest account = nobody security = user map to guest = Bad User guest ok = yes guest only = no browseable = yes syslog only = yes timestamp logs = no syslog = 1 encrypt passwords = yes preserve case = yes short preserve case = yes wins support = yes domain master = yes local master = yes preferred master = yes os level = 65 client code page = 437 coding system = utf8 socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=16384 SO_SNDBUF=16384 [global] security = share log file = /tmp/var/log/smb [MediaShare] path = /tmp/mnt/MybookWareHouse writable = yes delete readonly = yes force user = root comment = MediaShare The "failed to load nls 'iso8859-" error message is really strange as well on MBWE side, since coding system is set to "utf8" on the router's side I am beginning to think it is some peculiar behavior of the SAMBA in Tomato or a version mismatch between MBWE and Tomato. Can I upgrade the SAMBA version in Tomato or is it possible install SAMBA2 and effortlessly share the USB connected drives. How to handle the default builtin SAMBA sharing then. The smbclient on the MBWE side tell the following info Code: [root@MyBookWorld bin]# smbclient -L 192.168.10.10 added interface ip=192.168.10.10 bcast=192.168.10.255 nmask=255.255.255.0 Password: Domain=[HOME] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.23c] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- PUBLIC Disk IPC$ IPC IPC Service (MyBookWorld) Server Comment --------- ------- AIRMAX WRTSL54GS MYBOOKWORLD MyBookWorld Workgroup Master --------- ------- HOME AIRMAX [root@MyBookWorld bin]# So it is ver 3.0.23 (MBWE) v/s Samba 2.0.10 (Tomato Linksys) Tomato SAMBA configuration screen shot Please share any guidance, opinion or remedy you have done with similar SAMBA problems in tomato or if any changes need to be done in SAMBA on MBWE side. Thanks for reading and replying.
