Hello all,
I've been away from AROS for several years and I'd like to resume some of my old projects . I need suggestions about what's the best way to exchange files between AROS (under VMWare) and Windows

Thanks :)

For VMWare I have my Build Systems in Ubuntu so I can easily use drag-n-drop or copy/paste from Windows.

If you are using AROS in VMWare Im not sure that works. So I used a USB flash drive.

Fabio, I used before to use Pendrives and ISO Images (made on the fly), now thanks to "salass00" you can easily share Windows Folders or Volumes, I recommend to create a Network Drive, this way at each reboot Windows will share the Drive autiomatically, HERE you will find the necessary software

To activate ra sharing you have to sembly create yourself a Mountlist on AROS and start it via icon, you can also put it in WBstartup, but in this case it can happen that the a connection happens late and so you don't have sharing.

With this method you don't have to prreoccupy yourself with connecting and disconnecting when you want to update the pendrive, with the Shared you can use it at the same time both Windows and AROS side, the only invonvenient is that if you don't use it for more than 15 Minutes the share will auto disconnect.

I attach a small video showing the ease of sharing:

https://youtu.be/rFyL6akaw5Y

This is what you need to enter in the Mountlist (make sure Windows is enabled for sharing)

Handler = L:smb2-handler
StackSize = 65536
Priority = 5
GlobVec = -1
Startup = "smb://NameUser:Password@NamePC/Share"


In the Tooltypes Icon Aggregate these paramenters:

TOOLPRI=-127
ACTIVATE=1


--- Ita ----

Fabio, io prima utilizzavo Pendrive e Immagini ISO (fatti al volo), ora grazie a "salass00" Ŕ possibile condividere facilmente Cartelle o Volumi di Windows, consiglio di creare una UnitÓ di Rete, in questo modo ad ogni riavvio Windows condividerÓ l'Unita autiomaticamente, QUI trovi il software necessario

Per attivare ra condivisione devi semblicemente crearti una Mountlist su AROS e avviarla tramite icona, puoi anche metterla in WBstartup, ma in questo caso pu˛ accadere che l'a connessione avvenga in ritardo e quindi non avere la condivisione.

Con questo metodo non dovrai pi¨ prreoccuparti di connettere e disconnettere quando vuoi aggiornare la pendrive, con la Condivisa puoi utilizzarla contemporaneamente sia lato Windows che lato AROS, l'unico invonveniente Ŕ che se non la usa per pi¨ di 15 Minuti la condivisione si autodisattiva.

Allego un piccolo video che mostra la facilitÓ della condivisione:

https://youtu.be/rFyL6akaw5Y


Questa Ŕ quello che devi inserire nella Mountlist (accertati che Windows sia abilitato alla condivisione)

Handler = L:smb2-handler
StackSize = 65536
Priority = 5
GlobVec = -1
Startup = "smb://NameUser:Password@NamePC/Share"

Nel Tooltypes Icona Aggingi questi paramentri:

TOOLPRI=-127
ACTIVATE=1

Thanks for the suggestions,
I'm trying the @AMIGASYSTEM solution, I've installed filesysbox.library and smb2-handler, created the mountlist and nothing worked, but after a while I've realized that I do not have a working Internet configuration  ;D

So I need a bit more help:
- On VMWare side I've set NAT
- On AROS side I've attached a screenshot with my current settings

Thanks in advance for the help!

NAT is fine, but beware the inconvenience you may experience is only on the Windows side, make sure the sharing is enabled:

- Properties Network Icon
- Edit Advanced Sharing Settings
- Enable all items that pertain to sharing

If you need help creating the Network Drive, just ask, possibly use a folder on the "Public" User, that way there will be no restrictions

You will see the Network Drive in Explora Risorse as a Normal Volume



--- Italiano ----

NAT va bene, ma attenzione l'inconventiente che puoi riscontrare Ŕ solo lato Windows, accertati che la condivisione sia abilitata:

- ProprietÓ Icona di Rete
- Modifica Impostazioni di condivisione avanzate
- Attiva tutte tutte le voci che riguardano le condivisioni

Se hai bisogno di aiuto per la creazione della UnitÓ di rete, basta chiedere, eventualmente utilizza una cartella sull'Utente "Pubblica", in questo modo non ci saranno restrizioni

L'unitÓ di Rete la vedrai in Explora Risorse come un Normale Volume

Thank you but I'm not able to configure the network under VMWare :)
Any hints?

Grazie ma non riesco a configurare la rete sotto VMWare :)
Suggerimenti?

Fabio If you use a Default configuration on VMware, the Network is configured automatically, I attach a small video showing how to configure AROS on VMWare, in the video you will notice that the network also works from the ISO without the need to install anything, unless the AROS side Network is configured.

Fabio Se utilizzi una configurazione di Default su VMware, la Rete Ŕ configurata automaticamente, allego un piccolo video che mostra come configurare AROS su VMWare, nel video noterai che la rete funziona anche dalla ISO senza il bisogno di installare nulla, salvo sia configurata la Rete lato AROS.

Thank you @AMIGASYSTEM,
the problem was with IcAROS light & latest IcAROS experimental.

I've tried your distro 1.9 and from live disk woerked out-of-the box, later I'll try to install it and configure the shared folder :)

Grazie AMIGASYSTEM,
il problema era con IcAROS light e l'ultimo IcAROS sperimentale.

Ho provato la tua distro 1.9 e dal disco live ha funzionato immediatamente, in seguito prover˛ ad installarlo e configurare la cartella condivisa :)

Thank you for trying AROS One, soon I will publish the new version 2.0, where there will be many updates, both of the core, from third party software i, new configurations Themes and Icons created by me, HERE you find an overview about the new version's news.

The release will happen as soon as deadwood will make available the final version of ABIv0 20201110, by my habit I never publish experimental or incomplete Distributions, this is to give the user always the highest quality possible.

Thank you all for helping me out, finally I was able to share a folder I was already sharing with my linux box... I think that sometimes Windows is just a big, big, very big virus but I need it to work and it is plenty of apps so... :)

Anyway AROS is very nice in its current state and I hope to help with some useful utilities...

I am glad, you have experienced the convenience of the Network drive !

Windows is complicated, but at the same time simple, in the end you always find the right software for your needs, lots of choice even among free or Commercial software offered for free.

Let's say that Windows coexists well with AMiGA (WinUAE) and AROS, all my work on Distributions is done by all three Platforms  :)
