Hi

Is it possible with TC (or TC + a Special Plugins) to connect on a samba server like : smb://IP:8888

Thank u

You can connect to any Samba server just like in any other Windows program using standard UNC syntax: \\server\share. Note that you'd want to add a "cd " in front of the UNC path if you enter it in TC's command line (to make TC open it instead of Explorer).

The syntax smb://server:port looks like some Linux thing, maybe even special to some desktop manager.

the smb://server:port is a standard URI definition for samba service. the \\Server\Folder is the windows way to describe a share in MS world.

As TC is targeting MS windows OS you have to comply to M$ way...

smb://server:port yah, work in Linux World !
But \\server work only if smb://server:445 in Windows World

Yah, it's a WindowsOs limitation, but we could imagine TC or a TC Plugins to bypass this ?

Then -> No solution here?
