Quick tip: samba charset conversion

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingEvery Samba user knows that the global parameter client code poage = 850 (in smb.conf) helps conversion of special characters in file names when your Windows clients writes files on your Samba server. The reason is simple; this parameter is included with the sample smb.conf file provided with Samba.

If you haven't read the man page for smb.conf, you might not realize that there is another piece to the puzzle. For Samba to know what charset to translate from / to, you must tell it the char set of the server it is running on. This is done with the global parameter character set. If you are running Samba on a unix-ish machine which uses the ISO8859-1 charset, you should put character set = ISO8859-1 in the global section of your smb.conf file.

StompBox

NetworkingIt's called a StompBox and billed as a "Mobile 3G/WiFi Router Project". It's a WWAN (Wireless Wide Area Network) router. So what does it do? In more human terms, it's a compact little box that gets data from cellular towers and re-shares it for multiple computers to use. Now with EDGE and other types of wireless broadband access available, this is a cool project.

WPA Supplicant

  View Printable Version 
Networking"wpa_supplicant is a WPA Supplicant for Linux, BSD and Windows with support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i / RSN)."
Say what?
"It implements key negotiation with a WPA Authenticator and it controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication/association of the wlan driver."
Oh, I see... or at least I think I see.
The meaning is that this part is needed for you to get WPA working on your Linux or FreeBSD box (as of now, only FreeBSD 6.0-current is supported).
