appletalk file protocol as well as Samba, your Mac could be
connecting via appletalk.
Iirc, the appletalk protocol is very "basic" which essentially means
Try going to finder, and going to "connect to server"
in the connect field, use smb://ip-address-of-linkstation/
or you can use smb://name-of-linkstation
I believe either of those two will work, as long as you have the
correct information in the connect field.
Hope this helps,
- Can OpenLink be used? I thought they got a SSH server to run on it.
If so, then you should get secure-ftp service at no extra cost. Then
just find a nice client program for the Mac so you don't have to use
old command line utils like "scp". Will Safari work? On Konqueror
(Safari's Uncle) I can do this: sftp://linkstation and get it to work.
Oh and BTW Telnet is not enabled by default on the LS-1, There are
hacks posted about how to turn it on. OpenLink is a better choice
overall if you are not up to completely transforming you LS into a
full blown Debian Linux machine (i.e. Freelink) like I have done.
Finally it is possible that the problem you are having is not really
long file names, but illegal characters in the file name. You might
test for this.
