iMX6 SMB on WEC 2013

I have a problem with SMB. I can’t make my Colibri to be visible on the network.

Thank you in advance.

Colibri iMX6S 256MB V1.1B
WEC2013 v1.8

Hi @MES ,

The standard MS SMB only supports SMB 1.0.
And in CE8 (WEC 2013) Microsoft removed the support for SMB Sever (this is what you want i seem to understand).
We have a solution for this. In case you are interested, we have a paid solution for adding SMB 3.0 support to your device. We have both SMB Server and Client.
Let me know if you’re interested.

Hello Germano.

Is there any other way that I could make it possible? I need to share only one file but it has to be as user friendly as possible because it would be for non technical users. FTP server would need some type of client if I understand correctly. I was able to send file with Filestream in C# but it needs IP address or device name but I could not find a way to scan for device names in the network. Have you got any ideas how could I do that? I would also like to get information about that paid solution.

Thank you and have a great day!

Hi @MES ,

FTP need a client on the PC side, which is not installed by default on my computers. About the name… you can give you WinCE device a name and then you should be able to resolve the name to a IP adress on the PC side.
Another solution would be to use the internal HTTP Server you can set it up to give access to a folder and you can then download files from it. This has the advantage over FTP that every PC installation comes with a browser.
Of course the SMB Server Solution would the premium solution , but it will come with a licensing price. If you still interested i can put you in contact with our partner. Let me know

I would like to give some update on this topic.

We ended up using FTP server and it’s working great. It’s possible to create user accounts with different permissions and make easy connection with windows explorer, which meets all of our requirements.

Thank you for your help Germano!
