Default network


Did anyone get this part of ioftpd to work?

7) You can use network paths to export remote filesystems via the ftp.
### "\\\incoming" /incoming

i added it like that in my vfs file, the ftp connects like always but the folder that is supposed to show up doesnt....

does it need more than adding it to the vfs file?

p.s.: it only seems to work if ur map u network adress into a drive like "\\\incoming" becomes drive z:\ on ur pc and u do "z:\" /incoming

Try adding the IP address to the lmhosts file and then referring to it by name... like say \windows\system32\drivers\etc\lmhosts has as box2 then you can do \\box2\folder. You should be able to use the IP address though. Make sure you can access the folder by typing the line you intend to use into explorer directory. Often you need to provide permissions, etc... Mapping to a driver letter is probably a good idea though. Much simpler to deal with.

For speed reasons, try to limit the fanout of directories remotely mounted. I've seen systems mounting networked drives of mp3s with like 1000 dirs in a folder and it's slow to read the dir into the cache. Definitely consider turning on NoSubDirSizing if using networked drives like that...
