    Rather than creating a sticky I'd prefer that all users share their experiences on the troubleshooting part of the wiki, since most problems will be fixing up any problems in home networking.

    My problem starts with the Troubleshooting command:
    Code:
    # mount.cifs //192.168.1.36/mvpmc /etc/mvpmc -o username=guest,ro
    Password:
    mount error 22 = Invalid argument
    Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
    I assumed this refers to the XPP builtin user Guest. I temporarily enabled that account, and gave it full control rights, and cleared the password. I do not understand the error I get, and I can't find the manual page.

    mvpmc options -o svideo
    else
    mvpmc options -o composite
    fi
    1. Is this the correct order for the above commands (seperate posts)
    2. Can you create the share anyone else other than c:\mvpmc and if so how does the MVPMC know here to look?

    Cheers

    k.
    Afaik you can create it anywhere as long as the sharename is MVPMC.

    There's really no need to dig into the mount.cifs man pages your problem is going to be with the guest share on your xp box.

    I offered some debug testing options here.

    Some other things to check.

    - TCPIP file sharing is enabled.
    - xp firewall is open, if you run direct connect make sure both subnets can talk.
    - google xp simple file sharing


    Note that the guest account and the guest share are not the same thing and the guest account doesn't need to be enabled. It's sad that the FUD about the guest have likely caused this. I've confirmed these instructions with 2000 Pro, xp basic and pro, and vista home premium, and I've never had a problem which is why it is so hard to diagnose.

    That's correct, with the normal caveat about sharing the root. Some alternate suggestions would be a multimedia folder (to see how mvpmc native works, or the gbpvr/dongle folder.

    Before getting fancy I'd focus on getting the one liner working .

    mvpmc --startup emulate --emulate 192.168.1.10 &

    Yes I did follow that and came to the same conclusions as Anneb who seemed to have given up. I am not sure what you expect to see from the nbtscan command. Like Anneb reports I see the machines, not the shares:
    Code:
    IP address       NetBIOS Name     Server    User             MAC
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    192.168.1.0     Sendto failed: Permission denied
    192.168.1.21     FLUTE            <server>  ADMINISTRATOR    00-
    192.168.1.34     <unknown>                  <unknown>
    192.168.1.36     FLETUM           <server>  <unknown>        00-
    1.21 is a W2000 AS (a.o. AD, DNS and WINS server)
    1.34 is the MVP
    1.36 is a XP-pro with GBPVR and the shared mvpmc directory
    Some other things to check.

    - TCPIP file sharing is enabled.
    - xp firewall is open, if you run direct connect make sure both subnets can talk.
    - google xp simple file sharing
    TCPIP sharing is enabled. I also allowed NETBIOS over IP (read that somewhere). For test purposes I disable the windows firewall.
    I do not understand what you mean by google xp simple fs, because I have XP-PRO.
    Note that the guest account and the guest share are not the same thing and the guest account doesn't need to be enabled. It's sad that the FUD about the guest have likely caused this.

    I am not familiar with the notion of a 'guest share'. How do i do that in XP-PRO?

    pz1, I'm sorry that it is difficult, I'm trying to find the common denominator for this problem. The nbtscan is just to clearly show that sharing is turned on.

    "Simple File Sharing" is what Microsoft calls one of the two sharing models on xp.

    @Pz1:
    Just trying: you might want read this:
    http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true

    I remember having my system re-installed and couldn't get the "normal" networking browsing to work, couldn't see the shares either. I found this setting, changed it to 0 and everything was ok again. Afaik it won't hurt in a home environment.
    Good luck. Hans

    Martin, Sorry the 'desparate' was meant as a joke, not a complaint. Having served in IT for almost 30 years I am well aware things are tough. So I am happy to work on this to make your dongle useable for more people.

    If there are shares, should nbtscan show them?
    I can connect to the mvpmc share from a Win XP PRO portable, which is connected to my net, but is not part of the active directory, so I am not logged into the domain. There was no need to specify username or password to get the share connected.

    net user guest /active:yes

    I did this, but did not see any difference. After reboot still no autostart GBPVR

    thanks, pieter

    On my machine the RestrictAnonymous-key was already set to 0

    I'm going on 30 years myself in IT professionally, now programming is just for fun. I learned to program in the card punch era, when EDLIN would have been an improvement so we should enough expertise to track this down.
    If there are shares, should nbtscan show them?
    Not in the Debian flavour I used. There are versions now of smbscan that do this but there isn't enough room on the dongle for the samba library.

    I can connect to the mvpmc share from a Win XP PRO portable, which is connected to my net, but is not part of the active directory, so I am not logged into the domain. There was no need to specify username or password to get the share connected.
    Are you using simple or classic file sharing? I actually don't have XP Pro, my test was from a vhd Microsoft used to provide, but its gone now.
