It would be very useful to use Minix as native SMB server for windows (example: for backuping PC)
I subscribe for this request, I usually feed my other media players via SMB server, having an integrate solution would be perfect.
That's simple ... search at the Google Play Store for "samba server" and you will find a bunch of apps.
And work it?
Please. Describe the sulution without root??? Thanks
Due to the fact that I have no un-rooted device I am not able to say whether it works without root.
And sorry mate, if you wish to get a description you should take the time to read those description on Play Store by you own ...
No, at the moment there are no solutions without root, the point is exactly this, rooted device are not supported, enabling natively in the firmware the samba server will put the functionality officially mantained by minix, like other software offered in the package.
This is the meaning of this request, at least from my own point of view.
+1, samba is a have to, it should be preinstalled, for those who don't want to bother with rooting. I think this and native NTFS write support is the most important feature that should be integrated!
I tried minix root of x8h
Servers Ultimate in minix does not work.
server frequently disconnects.
In my galaxy phone everything works fine
will be enough to start stable FTP server
To be honest ... I have no clue why the server doesn't work smoothly for a rooted device. I am using it via LAN since weeks (and not only on the X8H) and I never had any issues.
+1 I am voting for this new feature... (previously i had a DUNE HD media player, and it was a very nice feature that i could access the attached hard-drive contents trough an samba and/or nfs share...)
I support the request. All the apps I tried, paid and free, with and without root simply do not work. When one worked, there was no write permission. Please add this.
Been using it for a long time!(Root)
That didn't work either. I think it managed to give me access, but without write permissions.
Are your device Rooted?
I can Read and Write in mine.Just like walking into one of the harddrives.
I just subscribed after buying the X8H Plus. I am coming from two WD Live hubs.
I can't believe that Minix doesn't allow me to do what I have been doing all these years: accessing the attached external USB disk from my PC (FOR BOTH READ/WRITE) with Samba.
So, I do NOT want kludgey root solutions.
Please provide Samba server functionality in the kernel soon!!
