nslu2 samba file sharing via pocketpc bluetooth
My goal is to connect to my nslu2 via bluetooth(pocketpc) to
listen to my mp3s while driving.
I've been doing the same with Wi-Fi successfully for the last six
months. I've been using the stock firmware, connected to a
wireless B router. I had my 30gig laptop harddrive in a 2.5" USB 2.0 caddy
using the NSLU2's power from the USB port. Using PocketMusic, I
mapped to the drive with PocketMusic's built in network drive
mapper. Slow to boot and connect, but once it was going it was
great, creating a giant playlist made it even faster to load. But
Wi-Fi was chewing up my pocketpc batteries. But more
importantly, I had to disable the wifi to connect to my bluetooth gps so I
could get to each of my clients via TomTom Navigator.
I've spent the last 5 hours sanding away the rust on my poor linux
skills and have installed openslug/samba/bluetooth. I am able to
connect to my slug with my pocketpc, but only as a
network/internet source, but I need to access my shared samba directory.
I tell my pocketpc to connect to my slug this way, but it says the file
share service isn't running on my slug's paired connection.
Thank you all in advanced!
