    Ubuntu and picoreplayer samba

    This is for Elmar.F

    So I have an old shuttle with linux mint installed.

    First I copied my music files to the Music folder in the Desktop.

    Then I installed samba

    On the raspberry pi I installed the usb hard drive

    Back on the Shuttle

    I opened the Computer folder and clicked on the Network and navigated to the usb disk on the raspberry pi

    the path was pcp.local > mnt > Elmar > music

    I opened the Music folder on the Shuttle, right clicked a folder > copy and pasted the folder into the pcp folder (this was where I had to set the write permissions).

    Thanks for your hard work and help. I really appreciate that. Many thanks.

    On my Ubuntu Laptop --> Ubuntu Explorer (Nautilus) --> Network --> pCP --> Clicking on pCP --> Screenshot below : 'Access denied' 'Problem with server-key'

    Access to music library on my old Synology NAS with 'smb://admin@10.0.0.100/musik/' without any problem.

    I tried 'smb://tc@10.0.0.12/Elmar' or 'smb://tc@10.0.0.12/mnt/Elmar' or 'smb://tc@10.0.0.12/Elmar/Musik' or 'smb://tc@pcp.local/Elmar' and many variations without success

    Morning Elmar, you do get upp early, don't you ?

    Where in the world are you ?

    I think that thi is just a permissions thing (I hope so as I know absolutely nothing about SSH keys)

    Trace your steps back and repeat

    It might help to go to the pcp Main page tab and click on Backup and the reboot.

    Hi, I'm in the heart of Europe: Austria.

    What I did is this: I grabbed another Laptop (Ubuntu based, again) and tried to access pCP, and - surprise - it worked.


    I remember while trying to get this thing running I (when using ssh command) encountered a warning that looked like this:

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@
    @ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@
    IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
    Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
    51:82:00:1c:7e:6f:ac:ac:de:f1:53:08:1c:7d:55:68.
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/isaacalves/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending RSA key in /Users/isaacalves/.ssh/known_hosts:12
    RSA host key for 104.131.16.158 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.


    I didn't even know what stupid action of mine caused this warning! Maybe you can tell? And what to do if the warning shows up again!?

    Not knowing what to do I googled this command to get rid of the message: ssh-keygen -R "you server hostname or ip"

    I assume using this command may be responsible for the network problem.

    In the meantime I transferred my music library from the NAS to the BOSS2's attached SSD and have it scanned by LMS super fast. The speed of the new system is astounding.

    I'd like to say a big thank you for your help.
    -Elmar
