sudden connection loss


I was listening to my mp3s just fine over the network with samba, when suddenly the connection just stops, i tried to umount and mount the filesystem, but it said it was busy, so i rebooted, and then tried to mount the share again, but came up with an error, now i'm wondering what happened, because i didn't change anything on either part, the windows or linux side...Any ideas???

root@toyotomi:/home/hideyoshi# mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=mechfighter //192.168.1.3/FILES /mnt/network
2003: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnomem (Insufficient server memory to perform the requested function.)
SMB connection failed

Did you reboot the server or the client? The error suggests the server could use a reboot.

As for myself, I use gnump3d to stream media files. It's an http server, which gives clients access to your media files from LAN/WAN topologies. Although it's not exactly what you're looking for because of the Win/*nix setup you use (I assume), it's still nice.

I don't see why i would need a reboot. I just rebooted my own machine back into windows, and can access the shares . my system is a dual boot 2kpro/linux , and the system i'm accessing is an xppro (parent's , pc) , ..........

Well, ok i gave in, and rebooted the xp machine, and now it works......Still I find it strange that I had to do that. I never had any trouble with windows to windows sharing, i've had bothing machines running constantly with no reboots.....and the only time i have had any trouble now is between linux and xp, strange

Well certainly it has to do with you not umounting the drive before rebooting windows, it may be busy if some shell you had was at some dir on the mount. If you always umount you shouldn't have that problem.

i didn't think i would have to umount the share myself, on the windows to windows side, if i reboot my machine, windows just disconnects automatically, and in linux i would have thought it would unmount it itself, because each time i see the messages during shutdown , i see "unmounting remote filesystems" , and so i assumed that linux unmounted the share itself

Oh and if happens again, you can try umount -l which will umount the filesystem from your tree but not release the resources when they are not used anymore.
