[edit] using the PMA as a file server (wifi)

From (found on ) :

  • first we can test the ap mode:
cardctrl insert # that brings us the card because it's disactivated by default
iwconfig # get you the name of your wifi card
ifconfig eth0 up # if your card is eth0
iwconfig eth0 mode master
iwconfig eth0 channel 1 essid "test"

then you can on your desktop use your favorite wifi tool in order to see if you can see your pma 430

did you say I can set pma to master mode with adhoc connexion to easily access files on it ?

<_FilE_> hm. master is access-point mode, so the other devices (the nokia) can connect to the pma as if it was an access-point

<pierro78> do I do this from embedded netzork app ?

<_FilE_> no, it only allows ad-hoc connections

<pierro78> oh anohter hack then ;)

<_FilE_> iwconfig eth0 mode master

<pierro78> ah :) thx so much !!

<pierro78> i need to write this down somewhere ...

<_FilE_> oops, need to do a `cardctl insert` first, before the iwconfig

2007-10-03 20:54:00< pierro78> Hi There !
2007-10-03 20:54:28< pierro78> Is there anybody who can tell me what the login/password is to telnet on my PMA ??
2007-10-03 20:54:34< pierro78> Thanks !
2007-10-03 20:56:13< _FilE_> telnet? didn't know about that. mean ssh? give root/qtopia and root/<empty> a try
2007-10-03 20:57:01< pierro78> I mean I am using my pma as a telnet server and I want to telnet onto it from my PC
2007-10-03 20:57:12< _FilE_> or simply do a `passwd` on your pma and set your favorite password.
2007-10-03 20:57:37< _FilE_> pierro78: i _highly_ recomend using ssh instead...
2007-10-03 20:57:44< pierro78> oh thanks !!!, didnt think about that
2007-10-03 20:58:49< _FilE_> there is an sshd for the pma, and even ssh1 is much safer than telnet
2007-10-03 20:59:09< pierro78> thanks for the tip, it worked perfectly !!!
2007-10-03 20:59:17< _FilE_> np
2007-10-03 20:59:25< pierro78> I am now telnetting to the beast :-)
2007-10-03 21:00:13< _FilE_> i'm quite used to ssh into for development/debugging...
2007-10-03 21:00:37< MMx> telwhat? what's that? ;)
2007-10-03 21:00:46< pierro78> yeah I usually use ssh too
2007-10-03 21:01:03< pierro78> but I am too lazy too install it on the beast ;-)
2007-10-03 21:01:14< _FilE_> MMx: telnet == unencrypted ssh ;)
2007-10-03 21:01:31< MMx> _FilE_: :>
2007-10-03 21:02:04< _FilE_> MMx: or something similar ;) i.e. tunneling might be quite hard, i suppose.
2007-10-03 21:02:06 * MMx abandoned telnet long ago
2007-10-03 21:02:07< pierro78> now the hard question : how to configure samba so that I can access my USB memory key plugged into the PMA ?
2007-10-03 21:02:39-!- Angelion [] has quit []
2007-10-03 21:02:46< _FilE_> need to share /storage IIRC. MMx, u know better?
2007-10-03 21:03:22< MMx> _FilE_: probably, I currently tunnel ipv4 stuff through a ipv6 SSH2 session, which goes through several 6-in-4 tunnels...
2007-10-03 21:04:00 * MMx would use smb4pma, but I do not know which version to prefer
2007-10-03 21:04:17< MMx> _FilE_, didn't you help masadafish with it lately?
2007-10-03 21:04:57< _FilE_> MMx: smb4pma is only a samba client GUI
2007-10-03 21:05:18< _FilE_> (ok, it shows the server status, but that's all)
2007-10-03 21:05:19< MMx> hu? it has a server-gui, too
2007-10-03 21:05:29< pierro78> _FilE_ you re probably right answer seems to be in smb.cnf and am going to add /storage in there
2007-10-03 21:07:48< _FilE_> MMx: at the `official` smb4pma-1 just shows the server status, with no possibility to configure the server itself
2007-10-03 21:07:50< MMx> hm, right. you can start/stop the server, but not define shares
2007-10-03 21:08:35< pierro78> vi smb.conf but vi seems to be a little bit crappy
2007-10-03 21:08:45< pierro78> I have vt100 term
2007-10-03 21:09:08< MMx> vi is crappy by definition. *duck* *run* *hide*
2007-10-03 21:09:43< _FilE_> pierro78: i didn't try. i use scp/sftp to access the pma's root-fs
2007-10-03 21:09:43< MMx> vim should be usable though
2007-10-03 21:10:26< pierro78> so I need to install openssh server on PMA ...
2007-10-03 21:11:25< _FilE_> pierro78: you do not need to, but i'd recommend it :)
2007-10-03 21:11:49< MMx> isn't it in the feed?
2007-10-03 21:14:07< _FilE_> oh, you could try the `hidden` qtopia ftp server
2007-10-03 21:14:34< _FilE_> it runs on port 4242
2007-10-03 21:14:42< _FilE_> user root, pass Qtopia
2007-10-03 21:14:54< _FilE_> (case sensitive)
2007-10-03 21:14:54 * MMx wonders who set that port :>
2007-10-03 21:14:57< pierro78> ah nice to know :-)
2007-10-03 21:15:14< pierro78> but I've modified my smb.conf with vi
2007-10-03 21:15:20< _FilE_> ok.
2007-10-03 21:15:37< pierro78> now have access to \\\storage on my pma :-)
2007-10-03 21:15:40< pierro78> great :)
2007-10-03 21:16:15< pierro78> maybe I'll put my / on a share too :-)
2007-10-03 21:17:26< pierro78> thanks for the tips anyway !! :)
2007-10-03 21:17:36< _FilE_> btw. i hope /storage is right. i can't find my usb-mini-a-to-a converter cable atm, so i can't test
2007-10-03 21:17:55< _FilE_> np, pierro78
2007-10-03 21:17:56< pierro78> I can tell you it's right :-)
2007-10-03 21:18:28< pierro78> browsing my usb memory key on the pma from my PC ...
2007-10-03 21:18:45< _FilE_> ok, then i did remember correctly :)
2007-10-03 21:19:24< pierro78> maybe I'll use the PMA to pictures to a nokia n800 ...
2007-10-03 21:19:33< pierro78> to transfer pictures ...
2007-10-03 21:20:34< _FilE_> using irda from the pma to the cell phone?
2007-10-03 21:20:52< pierro78> or just to watch movies stored in pma on the n800 (using samba server on pma)
2007-10-03 21:21:18< _FilE_> oh, with a wlan connection
2007-10-03 21:21:23< pierro78> nokia n800 has wifi too :)
2007-10-03 21:21:59< _FilE_> ok. you'll need to set the pma to master mode, or both to ad-hoc
2007-10-03 21:22:27-!- hansmbakker [] has joined #openpma
2007-10-03 21:22:30< _FilE_> so you can connect without an access-point in range
2007-10-03 21:22:39< _FilE_> hi hansmbakker
2007-10-03 21:22:44< hansmbakker> hi :)
2007-10-03 21:22:48< hansmbakker> how are you?
2007-10-03 21:22:50< pierro78> yeah, I am going to try that with my htc Wizard ... I'll buy a n800 later :P
2007-10-03 21:23:01< _FilE_> hansmbakker: nice
2007-10-03 21:23:05< hansmbakker> so you have money over :P
2007-10-03 21:23:16< hansmbakker> ok, fine :)
2007-10-03 21:25:28< _FilE_> pierro78: if you set the pma to master mode and get some dhcpd running on it, no futher configuration is required on the n800 i suppose.
2007-10-03 21:27:20-!- _FilE_ [] has quit ["leaving"]
2007-10-03 21:27:20< pierro78> do I do this from within the network app ?
2007-10-03 21:28:51-!- _FilE_ [] has joined #openpma
2007-10-03 21:32:50< hansmbakker> have you any experience with bluetooth dialup, maybe?
2007-10-03 21:34:17< pierro78> nope hansmbakker ...
2007-10-03 21:34:35< pierro78> _FilE_ did you say vim is available for the PMA ?
2007-10-03 21:35:32< hansmbakker> ok, that's a pity
2007-10-03 21:37:22< pierro78> I used bluetooth dialup from my tablet PC though ... on Windows ;P
2007-10-03 21:38:22< hansmbakker> ok :) i tried it with the pma, but my phone keeps saying that the pin is incorrect when trying to pair
2007-10-03 21:38:35< hansmbakker> but i'm sure the pin i enter is correct
2007-10-03 21:38:52< hansmbakker> pierro78: i can't find a pma vim version on google
2007-10-03 21:39:53< pierro78> ok no pb ... actually I can use smb4pma and move files in temp folder ...
2007-10-03 21:40:24< pierro78> as I now can telnet to the little beast this is OK ...
2007-10-03 21:41:26< pierro78> ok I am going to bed now ... thanks for the tips ... and good night !
2007-10-03 21:41:39< _FilE_> pierro78: i don't think VIM is availible
2007-10-03 21:42:09< pierro78> ok ...
2007-10-03 21:42:30< _FilE_> you could however try to build it yourself (or re-engineer a zaurus package)
2007-10-03 21:42:41< pierro78> did you say I can set pma to master mode with adhoc connexion to easily access files on it ?
2007-10-03 21:43:57< _FilE_> hm. master is access-point mode, so the other devices (the nokia) can connect to the pma as if it was an access-point
2007-10-03 21:44:23< pierro78> do I do this from embedded netzork app ?
2007-10-03 21:45:01< _FilE_> no, it only allows ad-hoc connections
2007-10-03 21:45:21< pierro78> oh anohter hack then ;)
2007-10-03 21:45:49< _FilE_> iwconfig eth0 mode master
2007-10-03 21:46:10< pierro78> ah :) thx so much !!
2007-10-03 21:46:31< pierro78> i need to write this down somewhere ...
2007-10-03 21:47:43< _FilE_> oops, need to do a `cardctl insert` first, before the iwconfig
2007-10-03 21:50:18< pierro78> thx I've started a little notepad to write this down ;-)
2007-10-03 21:50:26< pierro78>
2007-10-03 21:52:27< pierro78> ok I am really going to bed now ... thanks again for the tips ...  good night !
2007-10-03 21:53:40< _FilE_> pierro78: i'll have a look at the `notepad` and maybe add some things, ok?
2007-10-03 21:53:55< pierro78> sure no pb :)
2007-10-03 21:54:55< _FilE_> oh, if you want, i can put the irc log of your time here up on your notepad...
2007-10-03 21:56:13< pierro78> well I am mainly interested in the AP master mode thing to use my PMA as a file server ...
2007-10-03 21:56:37< pierro78> I ll try it later ...
2007-10-03 21:57:07< _FilE_> ok, i'll put that log part up, you can still delete it later
2007-10-03 21:57:10< pierro78> but feel free to add on this if you have more info :)
2007-10-03 21:58:07< pierro78> good night :-)
2007-10-03 21:58:16< _FilE_> gn8, pierro78
