    About file browser


    Hi folks,

    OpenBSD4.0 amd64
    Fvwm - light weight desktop


    I'm running scp, ssh, sftp etc. to share files on LAN. There is no problem running command line to transfer files. However I can't browse files on another PC to transfer files with drag-n-drop because no File-Brower nor Konqueror installed. On googling I found amp-fbrowser;

    SourceForge.net: A.M.P. File Browser


    I can't find its package on ports;

    # pkg_info showpkg amp-fbrowser
    Code:
    Error from ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/:
    550 showpkg.tgz: No such file or directory
    Error from ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/:
    550 amp-fbrowser.tgz: No such file or directory
    Please advise where to get it download other than on sourceforge site. Are there other suggestions on File-browser. TIA

    I was thinking maybe you could use SSHFS to mount the remote machine locally, and then use rox-filer to browse/copy the files.

    I do not know if SSHFS can be installed on OpenBSD, but I found some instructions for FreeBSD 6: rsync.net - http://www.rsync.net - info@rsync.net

    P.S. If SSHFS thing does not work, try NFS.

    Hi pavlo_7,

    Tks for your advice and URL.


    I was thinking maybe you could use SSHFS to mount the remote machine locally, and then use rox-filer to browse/copy the files.

    I do not know if SSHFS can be installed on OpenBSD, but I found some instructions for FreeBSD 6: rsync.net - http://www.rsync.net - info@rsync.net
    # pkg_info sshfs
    Code:
    Error from ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/:
    550 sshfs.tgz: No such file or directory
    It is not on the repo.


    P.S. If SSHFS thing does not work, try NFS.
    # pkg_info nfs
    Code:
    Error from ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/:
    550 nfs.tgz: No such file or directory
    It is also NOT on the repo.

    OR
    whether you meant "nfsshell-1.0.tgz"?

    I found it on;
    ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/

    I can get it installed.

    rox-filer-2.4.1 is also on;
    ftp://ftp.it.net.au/mirrors/OpenBSD/4.0/packages/amd64/

    Actually, I know very little about BSD. I simply assumed that nfs is available on OpenBSD by default.
    I would first check if the nfs server already exists on the system:
    Code:
    ls /sbin/nfsd
    Also, see maybe this faq can be of any help.
