SMBFS released




SMBFS: SMBFS A SMB file system wrapper for AmigaOS, using the AmiTCP V3 API

SMBFS implements an SMB file system for AmigaOS. This file system can be used to access files made available
by file servers which implement the SMB protocol, such as 'Microsoft Windows' or any other platform which supports
the free 'Samba' product. These files can be accessed using shell commands such as 'List', the Workbench or utilities
such as 'Directory Opus' as if the file server were a local disk drive.

This build is a simple compilation from Source Code found on
https://github.com/obarthel/amiga-smbfs/releases

No ChangeLog was provided after version 1.106

And version 1.117 was uploaded to Aminet yesterday too. Seems like a small change, but great to see updated binaries being released as well as the code being under development!

"A SMB file system wrapper for AmigaOS, using the AmiTCP V3 API"

Does this mean it won't work with RoadShow?

Careful please, this is not a stable release. It was built from the development branch of the GitHub repository (https://github.com/obarthel/amiga-sm...ee/development), and I would not recommend that you use it unconditionally. This is still beta test quality software. Expect trouble.

The one major bug which I fixed in version 1.117 concerns the "write raw" command, which in version 1.116 had the unfortunate side-effect of making smbfs hang after the first few bytes were sent to the server ("That does put a damper on our relationship"). Figuring out what went wrong took me almost a year (this is how debugging an SMB file system looks like, I'm afraid).

If you want to give this version a spin, make sure that the data written matches what you expect, and that the files you create are not shorter than you expected them to be.

If you are still determined to give it a try, please test the WRITEBEHIND option which might just make writes even faster, now that the "write raw" command seems to work as intended. Still, please heed my warning: double-check if the data you write actually lands safely.

Incidentally, the cruelly-named WRITEBEHIND option (both available as a command line parameter and an icon tool type) has effect of keeping smbfs from waiting for the server to acknowledge that it has indeed written all the data to the disk. smbfs basically fires off the write command and expects the server to get the job done. This can yield significant speed improvements with Samba, for example.

It means that it will work with the completely free version of AmiTCP V3 which you can still find on Aminet (if you want to put in considerably effort to install it on your system).

Roadshow, and of course the commercial AmiTCP V4 (and Genesis), all support the V4 API, which is a superset (not a big one, though, just a little bigger than its precursor, it hardly shows) of the original V3 API.

If something works with the V3 API (e.g. "Mosaic"), it should work with the V4 API, too. That's the point.
