Hi

Using JFtp V1.46 in a java142_05 environment, running
on top of eCS1.25 (eCS is an OEM version of the current
IBM OS/2 operating system).

JFtp starts OK but displays a local drive in the Remote
connections window. I would have expected the window to
be empty or to possibly attempt to reconnect to the
last Remote drive used

With a bit of playing around I finally got JFtp to
recognise my network which uses netbios over tcpip, an
smb based system.

I have 3 pcs on the network all using the eCS operating
system. I also have a Linksys NSLU2 - this device
allows USB2.0 drives attached to it to be "seen" as
network attached storage by the rest of the network.

I have no trouble accessing files stored on the drive
connected to the NSLU2 - might be worth noting that
this device runs an embedded linux operating system.

I cannot access any of the drives on any of the pcs on
the network though.

I can get the Remote Connection window to display my
network - it shows smb://THEBROWNS/

I can then click on that to see the 3 pcs on the
network - and the NSLU2 - but cannot access the pcs.
Trying to access the pc known on my network as THEWENCH
the result is:-

Could not change directory (jcifs.smb.SMBException:
Failed to negotiate dialect with server).

Attempting to access any other pc here produces the
same result.

Pardon my ignorance but is this an incompatibility
between smb and smb? - or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi! That may indeed be possible, there seem to be more bugs
    and missing protocol features in the jcifs api. Personally I
    can't even browse some networks or connect to some hosts
    (the famous MSBROWSE/unknown host messages) depending on
    what kind of master server is present. I'll should be able
    to tak a closer look at the problem (once again) soon, the
    last time I did there wasn't any helpful information on this
    topic, but maybe there's a newer jcifs version out there
    that works for you.

    I updated the jcifs version to 1.2.1 and made 1.47-pre2
    available via webstart, can you check if this brought you
    any improvement please?

    Tried 1.47-pre2 with no change - except it is now more
    difficult to cnnect to the NSLU2 device which did not have a
    problem previously.

    I would copy'n'paste the log entries but java apps are
    "unhelpful" in that respect - and the logs only seem to
    exist when the app is running, cannot find any log files
    containing error messages.

    To precis the error messages:-

    "jcifs.smb.SmbException:jcifs.util.transport.TransportException
    Client does not support the negoiated dialect."

    Looks like the same problem that the samba software had
    between builds 3.0.00 and 3.0.16 (?) where the support for
    the common smb/cifs dialect is missing.

    To retest the above I had to download the jnlp file and open
    it with an editor to locate the actual jar file to download
    - Sorry, but I hate WebStart and never use it unless I
    really have to. Useful for Windows users I guess though...

    Regards

    Pete

    I'll close this because the underlying jcifs api has been upgraded quite a few times.
