What is psx-pi-smbshare
psx-pi-smbshare is a preconfigured Raspbian based image for Raspberry Pi 1, 2, and 3. It runs a Samba share, a pi-compatible build of ps3netsrv, and reconfigures the ethernet port to act as a router. This gives low-latency, direct access to the Samba service through an ethernet cable connection between a PS2/PS3 and Raspberry Pi. A pre-supplied image can be applied directly to a Micro-SD card using something like etcher.io. The image will expand to use the full available space on the SD card when the OS is first booted.

An Xlink Kai client is also included and accessible on the device at http://smbshare:34522/. This allows for multi-player gaming over extended LAN. The service is possible to use on a variety of devices including PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, and Gamecube. Just connect an ethernet cable to your game console and access the Xlink Kai Service over Wi-Fi with a smart phone, tablet, or computer.

For a full description of functionality and available services, see the psx-pi-smbshare README. Below are a few interesting things that you can do.

Playing Halo 2 online with Xlink Kai on Xbox

Prerequisites
* An original Xbox or Xbox 360 with backwards compatibility support
* A copy of Halo 2
* An Xlink Kai account from http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/

1. Burn the [latest psx-pi-smbshare image](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare/releases) to a Micro-SD card
2. Configure Wi-fi per the steps above in ["Configuring the Wireless Network"](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare#configuring-wireless-network)
3. Plug the pi into the Xbox ethernet port and verify that you are able to obtain an ip automatically in Network Settings
4. Vist the Xlink Kai service running on the pi @ http://smbshare:34522 or http://<YOUR_PSX_PI_SMBSHARE_DEVICE_IP>:34522/ and login with your Xlink Kai account
5. Select an available Halo game from the Xlink Kai portal (there are usually a few running in South America)
6. Launch Halo 2 and select "System Link"
7. Join a game and have fun!


Playing SOCOM 2 online with Xlink Kai on PS2

Prerequisites
* A Fat PS2 with Network Adapter or Slim PS2
* A copy of SOCOM 2 for PS2
* An Xlink Kai account from http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/

1. Burn the [latest psx-pi-smbshare image](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare/releases) to a Micro-SD card
2. Configure Wi-fi per the steps above in ["Configuring the Wireless Network"](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare#configuring-wireless-network)
3. Plug the pi into the PS2 ethernet port
4. The following setup needs to be performed one time: Boot your PS2 up with SOCOM 2 and select "Online" at the title screen. Once you hit the first blue screen hit edit network configuration to be sent to the network setup. Now delete any old network settings and create a new one. Using Automatic settings is fine but you may wish to set the following manual settings if you have issues:

Console IP: 192.168.2.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router IP/Gateway: 192.168.2.1

5. Vist the Xlink Kai service running on the pi @ http://smbshare:34522 or http://<YOUR_PSX_PI_SMBSHARE_DEVICE_IP>:34522/ and login with your Xlink Kai account
6. Select an available SOCOM 2 game from the Xlink Kai portal (there is usually one running at all times)
7. Head back to the SOCOM 2 title screen and select "LAN"

Playing PSP games online with Xlink Kai on PSP

*tested with an [Edimax-EW-7811Un](https://www.amazon.com/Edimax-EW-7811Un-150Mbps-Raspberry-Supports/dp/B003MTTJOY) wifi dongle*

Prerequisites
* A wifi capable PSP
* 1 external wifi dongle for RPi 2/3 or 2 external wifi dongles for RPi 1
* A Multiplayer game which supports Ad-Hoc
* An Xlink Kai account from http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/

1. Burn the [latest psx-pi-smbshare image](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare/releases) to a Micro-SD card
2. Configure Wi-fi per the steps above in ["Configuring the Wireless Network"](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare#configuring-wireless-network)
3. SSH to you psx-pi-smbshare instance using the default username `pi` and default password `raspberry`
4. Ensure that your PSP is set to Automatic in Network Settings under Ad Hoc Mode
5. Run the following commands to disable the hostapd access point and enable Ad-Hoc Wifi:

sudo service hostapd stop
sudo iw wlan1 set type ibss


7. Start an Ad-Hoc multiplayer session from a game on the PSP
6. Run the follwoing command

sudo iw wlan1 scan | grep PSP_ -B 5

You will receive an output similar to:

freq: 2462
beacon interval: 100 TUs
capability: IBSS ShortPreamble (0x0022)
signal: -42.00 dBm
last seen: 0 ms ago
SSID: PSP_S000000001_L_GameShar


Take note of the frequency and SSID
7. Using the information in the previous step, execute the following while the multiplayer session is waiting:

sudo iw wlan1 ibss join <SSID> <frequency>

Ex: sudo iw wlan1 ibss join PSP_S000000001_L_GameShar 2462

If you receive "Operation not supported (-95)" then your wifi adapter may not be compatible

Once you know this command, you can re-use the following script at any time to enable PSP Ad-Hoc mode:

sudo service hostapd stop
sudo iw wlan1 set type ibss
sudo iw wlan1 ibss join <SSID> <frequency>


Note: You must run this script after starting an Ad-Hoc multiplayer session on the PSP

8. Exit the Ad-Hoc multiplayer session and start a new one
9. Vist the Xlink Kai service running @ http://smbshare:34522 or http://<YOUR_PSX_PI_SMBSHARE_DEVICE_IP>:34522/ and login with your Xlink Kai account
10. Select "Metrics" and scroll down to "Found Consoles" and you should see your PSP device
11. Select an available PSP game from the Xlink Kai portal
12. Join a game and have fun!

Using a Second WiFi interface as an Access Point to Xlink Kai
Prerequisites
* 1 external wifi dongle for RPi 2/3 or 2 external wifi dongles for RPi 1

1. Burn the [latest psx-pi-smbshare image](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare/releases) to a Micro-SD card
2. Plug in the external wifi dongle(s)
3. Configure Wi-fi per the steps above in ["Configuring the Wireless Network"](https://github.com/toolboc/psx-pi-smbshare#configuring-wireless-network)
4. Configure the device to connect to "XlinkKai" SSID when the pi has booted using Password `XlinkKai`

Note: XlinkKai will only work on one network interface (wifi or ethernet) at a time and will lock onto the first interface connected to from a compatible device until reboot
