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