Background: 64gb wifi+3g iPad3 running jailbroken iOS 5.1.1. Samba-cores + Samba (3.5.15) have been installed from Cydia. I have installed same files to iPhone4 (jb 5.1.1) and work like a dream. Just like any pc would on same workgroup. Problem: when I try to start smbd and nmbd they kinda try to start but they dont run? Code: iPad:~ root# locate nmbd /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.samba.nmbd.plist /private/var/stash/samba.0g11vS/sbin/nmbd /usr/sbin/nmbd iPad:~ root# smbstatus Killed: 9 iPad:~ root# _______________________________ iPad:~ root# cat /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.samba.nmbd.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "httpwwwapplecom/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>org.samba.nmbd</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/sbin/nmbd</string> <string>-F</string> </array> <key>KeepAlive</key> <dict> <key>NetworkState</key> <true/> </dict> </dict> </plist> iPad:~ root smbd in same dirs. I added the .plist if gives anyone a clue. I have tried experimenting with smb.conf. Here is the one that works in iPhone4: Code: [global] workgroup = KOTI debug level = 0 log level = 0 ; listen to WiFi networks only interfaces = en0 bind interfaces only = yes local master = no map archive = no map hidden = no load printers = no ; disable the next line if you don't need MAC OS X GUI access unix extensions = no security = user hosts allow = 10.0.0.0/24 ;passdb backend = smbpasswd wins support = No domain logons = No ;domain master = No ;usershare allow guests = No [root] comment = iPhone-root path = / read only = no writeable = yes browsable = yes create mode = 775 directory mode = 775 inherit acls = yes [mobile] comment = iPhone-Mobiili hakemisto path = /var/mobile read only = no writeable = yes browsable = yes create mode = 775 directory mode = 775 inherit acls = yes Logging is off on that iPhone .conf as it works. I tried to log in iPad but didnt get anything usefull. I have been trying to solve this for 2 weeks now. I dont know iPad that well as only used it for 6 weeks. Iphone lil longer (since 3gs) so know it better. What am I missing or not noticing? Probably some too simple thing as works in iPhone. And please, dont tell me to use TIOD or some stupido app that were mentioned in posts here. Some dropboxes and iclouds outta question too. I have 15+Tb RAID-5 on my server (i7 2600k @ 4200mhz 16Gbram) which I need axx to. On the road I can grab via ssh singular files but would like to 'pack' iPad ready to days work via smb as then can just easily drag n drop needed files. I also need to move files between iDevices. But thats a different story. Any idea or solutition would be greatly appriciated. Even a small clue. One question arrises: i do have some theming and apps from iPhone 4. Would someting from there conflict?
