LLTD on Linux

It seems this is possible, and would be useful for work where all the laptops are Vista machines.

There’s not that much on the web, and I’d have thought there was an Ubuntu package, but I can’t find it.

I ran the make and got this error,

../src/state.c: In function 'state_process_packet':
../src/state.c:177: error: 'UINT_MAX' undeclared (first use in this function)
../src/state.c:177: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
../src/state.c:177: error: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [state.o] Error 1

There is one thread on the ‘net, at howtoforge forums, but the advice is incomplete. I returned to the howto forge page and studied the comments. They advice linking the bourne and bash shells and addding an include line in state.c. It now compiles but does not behave as I expect, or as documented in Microsofts guide.

I created a short URL for the howto tutorial because I took the script from there. http://is.gd/5rhUK

I have used the package manager to download and install samba and its documentation. The Ubuntu page documenting Samba is here…, and with both LLTD and with smbd & nmbd running, the Vista boxes can browse the shared area. (Do I need LLTD? It seems not, I restarted the lltd daemon and it failed to open some resource. I need to document it. )

This was copied across in June 2013. It probably died of relevance as Vista was replaced. It’s one of the things I looked into when trying to use a Vista laptop at work between 2009 and 2011.

If you have something to add, please do so.
