I'm using Easymint with th 1.16 kernel, Xaaes, and Teradesk. I would like to find a way to mount a network share (drive or directory) so that I can open it up in a window on the desktop and do file operations.
I've read about a few things, which are limited to command line browsing and file transfers like using the command line version of ftp. This is not what I need. I've successfully mounted a network share on a Windows XP machine using Sharity Light and the following command:
shlight //computer/directory /nfs/name -U username -P password
The "computer" is my Windows system name
The "directory" is the name of the directory set to be shared from the Windows system
The "name" is whatever you want to call it on the Atari side, but this must be preceeded by /nfs/ or it will not work
The user and password were created on the Windows XP system so I can login to access the share
I also had to add a line to my /etc/hosts file, which included the IP address [TAB] then the name of the computer that I was trying to connect to:
Still, all I can do is go to the TosWin shell on the Atari system and type cd /nfs/name, then dir or ls to show the contents. I'm sure there are commands to copy a file back and forth, but it is much easier to do that with and FTP client.
What I want to know, is whether there is any way at all that I can mount a network share as, for example O:
MiNT supports NFS, Samba, and Sharity Light, although I can't find any clear information as to how to mount a share so it appears as a device. This is sometimes referred to as a device mount. I just want to open a window in Teradesk (or any desktop) so I can get to work on archiving my software to the server. I have a monumental amount of work to do, and command line would kill me.
If anyone has figured this out, please share your advice.
