=== Fails to open files ===

In a setup with shlight and Vista (in a domain) it seems you need to specify -W [domain name]. It connects and shows the files (you can browse), but fails to open. the shlight responds with:

nfs server shlight-163: not responding
 +
nfs server shlight-163: not responding

and can only be killed. The apple tv interface keeps waiting for the files become available. Which doesn't because of input/output error and can only be satisfied with a sudo reboot.

Since Sharity-Light is distributed under the GNU General Public License, can you please post the compiled binary for x86 Mac Os x and AppleTV. Thanks! oorosh

Done. No file attach capability unfortunately, so it is base64encoded.

Troubles

Failing to connect to a server by either IP or NetBIOS name

Installed it, I'm able to mount other machines' SMB shares, just not my fileserver's for some reason...

From the ATV:

bash-2.05b# ping x.x.x.x
PING x.x.x.x (x.x.x.x): 56 data bytes

Happens as root or as frontrow...

Solution

I had the same issue. Fixed it by altering the hosts file. It seems that shlight doesn't work with IPs and if you haven't got DNS working properly, it fails. Adding the IP + Hostname to /etc/hosts means that both the IP and the hostname respond. dobedobedoh 21:37, 27 April 2007 (GMT)

Thanks for this hack! It works perfectly! oorosh

Fails to open files

In a setup with shlight and Vista (in a domain) it seems you need to specify -W [domain name]. It connects and shows the files (you can browse), but fails to open. the shlight responds with:

nfs server shlight-163: not responding nfs server shlight-163: not responding

and can only be killed. The apple tv interface keeps waiting for the files become available. Which doesn't because of input/output error and can only be satisfied with a sudo reboot.
