How do I connect to NAS-disk as a LAN drive? ***SOLVED***
« on: April 02, 2009, 03:14:32 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?

Good suggestion Bigpaws !

just tried it from the other VL - wouldn't http:/192.168...., but I remembered in somthing I read when I searched the forum:

lan:/192.168. .... and I am 'inside' the NAS disk.

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.
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

VL 6.0 SOHO KDE-Classic on 2.3 Ghz Dual-core AMD with 3 Gigs of RAM

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.
