export an optical drive to windows


Hi everyone,

I have a debian etch server with an optical drive. Is it possiple to "export" the optical drive to windows? I want to use it for reading (with eac - so I need a raw access) and burning.

Greetings

ToK

You need to install SAMBA. Most distros will have a package for this.

Then you need to configure it to share the CD-drive. IIRC the default configuration file (usually /etc/samba/smb.conf) has a lot of examples which you can use just by uncommenting/modifying the relevant section.

The home site for samba is http://www.samba.org with full documentation, but it is pretty heavy going.

Edit: I just see you need raw access. Not so sure about that.

OK, I configured samba and autofs. It works as far as I only want to read files. I can't burn and I can't play audio-disks.

On the other hand is ATA-over-Ethernet. That's want I want (I think I havn't tried it out). The problem is, that I can't find a free Windows-Client. Does anybody know one?
