    Create Sym link to network share

    Hello,

    How would I link Slimserver running on a Linkstation to use "\\10.0.0.11\e$\MyFtp\MP3s" as amusic folder?
    Right now it's set to /mnt/music with a Windows shortcut to "\\10.0.0.11\e$\MyFtp\MP3s" but it's not picking it up.

    Thanks for your input.

    Could you please give some more details about your setup? Where is
    slimserver running? What is 10.0.0.11?

    Slimserver is running on a PPC linkstation.
    10.0.0.11 is a Windows PC.
    Trying to get slimserver to scan the Windows PC.

    Thanks

    Before we invest any longer in this "problem"... are you sure this is the
    right way to go?!? I'd rather run Slimserver on the PC with the files loft
    on the linkstation than the other way around...

    However... If you really want to use it that way, you'll have to mount the
    PC's share on the linkstation (google around for smbmount), then use that
    mount point in Slimserver as music folder. But I doubt you'll be happy
    with the solution. Doesn't make sense to me.

    Well, I'm trying to keep the slimserver as the workhorse.
    I also plan on keeping some music on it, but most on a Windows share.

    Thanks

    I don't seem to have smbmount.
    Regular monut give me the following.
    I will admit... I know VERY little about linux.

    Thanks!

    < mount -t smbfs //10.0.0.11/e$/myftp/mp3s /mnt/music
    mount: fs type smbfs not supported by kernel
    root@LINKSTATION:/usr/sbin#

    You're out of luck then: samba client software does not seem to be
    installed on your box.

    How do I install it?
    Also, what version of linux is this running? I'm lost.
    Is it possible to install something like webmin on it?

    Thanks for your help.

    As Michael already pointed out your setup doesn't make much sense. Your windows pc is more powerful than the linkstation even if there's a ton of other programs running at the same time. People run slimserver on NAS devices because they don't want to have a pc running all the time. Having the audio files on the pc clearly defeats its purpose.

    I think I found it, but..

    root@LINKSTATION:/bin# ls
    awk date groupmod mkdir readlink true
    bash dd gunzip mknod rm umount
    bdu df gzip mktemp rmdir uname
    bunzip2 dmesg hostname more run-parts useradd
    busybox dnsdomainname htpasswd mount sed userdel
    bzcat domainname ifconfig mv sh usermod
    cat echo initdconfig netstat sleep usleep
    chgrp egrep kill newusers smbmnt vi
    chk_ip expr ln nkf smbmount wc
    chmod fgrep login pidof stty zcat
    chown grep ls ping sync
    cp groupadd mkcode ps tar
    cpio groupdel mkcode.hglan_sjis pwd touch
    root@LINKSTATION:/bin# smbmount
    bash: smbmount: command not found
