[HOW-TO] Change the Workgroup on our Players (SDK4+)
Hi PlayON! Users,
due to some requests of several users that want to change the workgroup of our players here is a small and easy-to-use how-to:
1. enable telnet client in windows features or download putty from: http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/lat ... /putty.exe
2. telnet into the player by clicking START and type 'telnet
' <enter>, 'open 192.168.x.x
' (login is root there is no pw, replace 192.168.x.x with the ip address of your player)
3. enter the following commands:
3.1 backing up old samba config files: 'cp /usr/local/etc/package/samba/lib/smb_anonymous_head.conf /usr/local/etc/package/samba/lib/smb_anonymous_head.conf.bak
3.2. editing samba config: 'vi /usr/local/etc/package/samba/lib/smb_anonymous_head.conf
3.3. adding workgroup name: directly under the string [global] insert a new line by first pressing 'i
' and than <enter> and add 'workgroup = NEWWORKGROUP
3.3.1 adding server string description: directly under the string workgroup = NEWWORKGROUP insert a new line 'server string = NEWSERVERSTRING
3.3.2. save the samba config file: press 'ESC
' + ':wq!
4. reboot the player: type 'reboot
If you wanna restore original smb config file simply type 'cp /usr/local/etc/package/samba/lib/smb_anonymous_head.conf.bak /usr/local/etc/package/samba/lib/smb_anonymous_head.conf
reboot again to get back to the old state.
NOTE: You will need to reboot the player and eventually disable / enable samba again for the changes to take effect.
