I've been tinkering with my router and have flashed it to use DD-WRT (a Linux distro that can provide me with some extra functionality). This in turn has allowed me to create a Samba server to share the USB drive connected to my router.
It appears to be working fine and I can connect to it, modify files etc. from my Windows 7 box. But I'm having trouble connecting from my MacBook (running Snow Leopard). What I'm doing is:
- Switching to Finder
- Hitting Command + K to bring up the "Connect To Server" dialog
- From here I try to connect to "smb://firstname.lastname@example.org/public". 192.168.1.1 being the router, share being the username and public the folder I wish to access.
- This then provides me with a username & password box, with share populated in the username field. I enter the password for the share account but it tells me it's invalid. I've also tried different username/passwords just incase and using guest access. All no good.
Does anyone have any ideas on what else I can try? I'm definitely getting the right username & password combination.
Cheers for any help Lee
