Hi All, How do you change the network group of a hdr t2 to the same as the rest of your network. Be it home or Alfs network or what ever?
That's because you don't need to to set the network group for Windows 7 unless you have changed it from the default, which on Windows 7 is "WORKGROUP". The samba default configuration file on the T2 has this set to "WORKGROUP" also, to enable it to work "straight out of the box". Computers in the same workgroup must elect one of them to become the "Master Browser" who's duty it is to maintain a list of members of that workgroup, so it is important that the workgroups match for members to be browsable by other members. On the Foxsat HDR there is an entry under the "Settings" page for the workgroup to be defined, as well as the hostname, to facilitate this.I don't remember needing to set the network group - the Humax (with the samba package installed - you have done that?) just appears in File Explorer (Win7) as a network device.
Sorry Ezra but SMB/CIFs is a Microsoft protocol and if you're running a samba server under linux then it will appear to the Windows workgroup as just another member of the group, (or not if it isn't). If it's not in the group it may not automatically appear under 'Network' although you should still be able to map a network drive providing you specify the share name manually, as you may not be able to browse to it.Work groups are usually associated with Microsoft Windows as far as I'm aware and as your Humax is running Linux work groups don't apply. I have edited #2 to add more detail
