- May 15, 2005Hello,
1) You should have assigned an Netbios Name to your NSLU2.
All the shares you created will appear in « My Network place » with the name
of the NSLU2, and the name of the share.
Note that if even if you havent created any share, there should be 2 lines
by default :
- admin1 on <NSLU2_Name_you_assigned> \\<NSLU2_Name_you_assigned>\admin
- disk 1 on <NSLU2_Name_you_assigned>
2) Be careful that allowing the outside world to connect to your NSLU2
means that everybody connected to Internet is able to try and hack your
files. This is a significant security concern that should be raised.
To be able to share a ressource from outside your network (you LAN = Local
Area Network), you must enable the sharing protocol (aka Netbios) to cross
your equipments (mainly your router).
There are 3 steps to perform
Step 0 : Check if your ISP doesnt block the Netbios ports
Sometimes (more and more often), the ISP blocks the Netbios ports for
You should check in the FAQ if your ISP blocks the Netbios ports. If it the
case (like for mine), there is no real solution, other than changing your
Step 1 : Allow the Netbios trafic to cross your router/firewall
Currently, most of the router embedd a firewall. You then must tell your
firewall embedded in the router you want to enable Netbios in both direction
(sorry, there are maybe others, but here are the ports found in books).
Step 2 : Tell your router what equipment (IP adress) will be the target of
incoming Netbios trafic
You must configure your router to set the NSLU2 to be the destination of all
incoming Netbios requests.
There is a common mode called DMZ mode that can be used. In this mode, all
incoming requests (Netbios or not) are sent to a single IP adress. This mode
should be used for tests purposes.
Hope it can help

Objet : [nslu2-general] Some simple questions
I've been scouring the Wiki and this group for an answer, but don't
seem to be able to find what I need. I think these are very, very
1) How is the drive that is attached to the NSLU2 viewed from in-
network computers? Is it in "My Network Places?" I've tried looking
at the manual, but this simple question doesn't seem to be answered?
2) How do people OUT of my network view files? Is there a way to do
this without starting up an ftp client? Like a webpage based
interface? Or something else? I would like to eliminate the FTP
component and just have someone type in my domain (which would then be
run off DynDNS)...
