SMBFS 1.74 - 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.
Changelog (starting from the previously released 1.66 version):
smbfs 1.74 (31.8.2009)
- Integrated Harry Sintonen's fix for the problem caused by large
writes to files. The respective packet size was off by one byte.
Thank you very much!
smbfs 1.73 (17.4.2009)
- Modified smb_valid_packet() in proc.c to check whether the packet
received is smaller than expected, not whether the length matches
exactly. This seems to fix the protocol negotiation with Samba 3.2.5
for now. Haven't checked Vista yet, though...
smbfs 1.72 (14.4.2009)
- In proc.c, smb_setup_header() initialized the SMB header length
field with a number which was too large by four bytes. Consequently,
what was later committed to the wire would have four trailing data
bytes which could contain random values. This often didn't do much
harm, but it seems that Samba 3.2.4 and Windows Vista don't like the
looks of the trailing junk bytes.
smbfs 1.71 (13.6.2005)
- The extended directory scanning entry conversion code now swaps
the last modification and last write access date stamps. This
matches the time of the last modification, as returned by the
regular ACTION_EXAMINE_FH/ACTION_EXAMINE packets. Note that the
time resolution is a little bit coarser because the modification
time as expressed by the SMB getattr function cannot represent
60 distinct seconds per minute but only 30. The net effect is
that the resulting time stamps in a directory listing and by
examining a file can differ by one second.
- The DST option's time offset was added to rather than subtracted
from the local time. Fixed.
smbfs 1.70 (13.6.2005)
- Introduced a new option to account for daylight savings time
- Looks like some of the time stamps used in "proc.c" are
transmitted in local time after all; brought back the
smbfs 1.69 (13.6.2005)
- The time stamps used in "proc.c", as returned and submitted to
the SMB file system on the other end of the wire are apparently
all in Universally Coordinated Time already (or at least, this
seems to be the case with Samba and Windows XP). Hence no conversion
between local time and UTC is necessary, which would otherwise
distort all date stamps converted. I modified the file system to
leave all time stamps essentially unadjusted for local time in
"proc.c". The local time zone adjustments are now performed only
where the time in question is known to be Amiga-specific, such as
the current system time or the date stamp to set for a file.
The time conversion appears to be working correctly now, but it
does ignore the effects of daylight savings time, which you might
want to adjust for manually through the TIMEZONEOFFSET option
(careful though: this overrides your current locale-defined time
zone settings as far as smbfs is concerned).
Unsolved problem: at least Windows XP seems to return different
time stamps for directory listings and for indidivual files. As
far as I can tell, the sets of time stamps returned for either
doesn't match anywhere.
smbfs 1.68 (3.6.2005)
- It appears that Windows XP can produce directory listings with
file/directory modification times set to 0, indicating that no
such information is available, while the associated last file
write access data is present. Previously, smbfs only reported
the modification. If this data is unavailable and the date of
the last write access is, the last write access will be
smbfs 1.67 (27.5.2005)
- Replaced the long NT date conversion code with something hopefully
much more robust. The results so far are both encouraging and
irritating. Dates that previously came out as "unknown" are now
processed, but there are differences between the dates shown in the
directory listing and by listing the files by name. Go figure...
- Transplanted some more code from Samba to handle directory entry
