SMB and FTP servers for MSX

Konamiman has released two new networking applications that will be useful for those willing to transfer data between a MSX with a network card and a more modern computer:

  • ObsoSMB is an SMB server that will expose the MSX disk drives as shared folders to machines running Microsoft Windows.
  • ObsoFTP will turn your MSX into a FTP server. Especially useful for transferring files between the MSX and non-Windows machines.

As an added bonus, now you can download a floppy disk image containing InterNestor Lite and all the networking applications made by Konamiman. This is useful if you want to try the applications by using an emulator with network card emulation support, such as blueMSX.

Now that made my jaw drop! What an awesome achievement! Congratulations for this impressive work, Nestor!

If an SMB client could be made, that would be even more impressive! Big smile

Sorry, no more SMB for a while. It has been a BIG headache to make it work (especially when implementing the RPC emulation, I thought that my head was going to explode). Also, I failed miserably when trying to make it work with Samba based clients. The FTP server was a much more relaxed project.

I can't make it work with my ObsoNET card.
I load INL (version 1.1.1) correctly. Then I execute obsosmb and I get an error saying:
"No TCP/IP UNAPI implementations found".
My configuration is an MSX TurboR A1GT with ObsoNET in an slot expander connected to slot 2 (on the back of the computer).
I have no problems working with TELNET or FTP with the same configuration.
You can see a screenshot here:

Am I missing something or doing something wrong?
Tell me if you need more information to find the problem.

That was the problem.
I've updated to version 2.0 and it worked!
