How do I connect to NAS-disk as a LAN drive? ***SOLVED***
« on: April 02, 2009, 04:14:32 am »

I have recently purchase a NAS drive in order to share files among the 3 computers in my home.

Two are running VL 5.9 SOHO (wired connection) and one is running WinXP (wireless connection).

After attaching the NAS to the router, I was able to run the setup of it in a browser, and (only tested from one of the VL's) I am able to move files back and forth with gFTP accessing the NAS on its IP adress.

What I really would like to is to browse the filesystem on the NAS in my FileManager (Konqueror), but opening the Network Services under system gives me this errer message:
**
The Lisa daemon does not appear to be running.
In order to use the LAN Browser the Lisa daemon must be installed and activated by the system administrator.
**

Now I have looked around (and the search function in this forum returns a lot, but not what I want) to find out how to start LISa

can you guys ba as helpful as always?? :)

Have you tried opening Konqueror and typing the
ip into the address bar?

It sounds like you have this thing fixed but just in case you ever need to know, to start LISa, open a terminal and type lisa.

Well I did try that, but LISa cannot find a config file, and I do not know what to put in such a file. I am writing this from my work where there is no linux, so I will post further details when I get home to my VL.
