|Open PS2 Loader uses the
(Server Message Block) protocol to connect the PS2/PS3 to a PC's share
folder. You can connect your console to a router with an
ethernet cable if you already have a network setup or connect
directly to your PC with a crossover cable. Make sure your PC's
console's IP and router's Gateway IP are all in the same Range with the
first 3 ocets
having the same number.
An example IP : 192.168.1.xxx of a typical LAN network,
where xxx represents a
specific number for a device on the network. No two devices can use the
same 4th ocet number, as
this last digit specifies the device as
seperate from another device on the network.
Example device IPs on a network:
PC 1 - 192.168.1.100
PC 2 - 192.168.1.101
PC 3 - 192.168.1.102
PS2 - 192.168.1.10
A router is usually 192.168.1.1 as its default IP for a
Gateway, then assigns each device on the network in the order as they
are turned on if you left the PC's setting as Dynamic (auto assigned by
DNS). So if you have 3 PCs and turn them all off/on daily, the first PC
turned on would be assigned the first available IP number. So you
might want to assign a Static IP to a PC if you dont wish its IP to
If you use a router and
have 'port forwarded' applications, be sure to check that port 445 is
free, as the SMB protocol uses port 445 as its default. You can specify
a different port in the OPL's network configurations if port 445 is
not available to use. Also make sure the port is not blocked or used by
another app/service in your
You need to make sure your PC is enabled for file sharing and can use
SMB. There are many ways to configure your connection, depending
on the equipment you are using. I will list the configurations of those
that have worked for others.
Simple File Sharing is on by default , so most likely you
have SMB enabled, but if you dont or dont wish to enable it, you can
enable the Guest Account to connect to the SMB share.
To enable Simple File Sharing:
> Tools > Folder Options > View Tab
At the bottom you will see the option "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)",
so place a mark in the box and click OK.
WinXP Home doesnt have
option as it is on by default and can not be turned off.

Setting a Sharename:
Now your PC is setup to share your games with your console, click the
Settings Icon above, then the Network Icon in its submenu to configure
OPL to your network's IP/share
- Select the Folder or Drive letter (if using a whole drive) where your
installed PS2 games are located on your PC.
- Right-click it and choose "Sharing and Security". (sharing a drive will prompt a
warning first about the risks of sharing it over a network)
- In Network
and Security, place a mark in the box for "Share this folder on the network",
then give the "Share Name"
the name PS2SMB (default name) or any name you want, but must also
match the OPL network configuration.

I created a folder on my H: drive named 'PS2SMB'
Then right click, share with
Select specific people
Then set properties for 'everyone' to 'read only'
Or: Just right-click the Folder PS2SMB and click 'Properties', then
click on 'Share tab' and Select 'Share' and allow 'Everyone', then
Select permissions for Everyone.

Modifications to the samba config I had to
make: By volca
- Lanman auth has to be enabled.
- Security share has to be set.
- Null passwords have to be enabled.
4. I also had to setup guest user (in shell)
To sum up, put this into
section of smb.conf
auth = yes
security = share
passwords = yes
In [global], I commented out the line "map to guest = bad user" (might
not be needed)
- # useradd guest
- # smbpasswd -n guest
Set keep alive = 0
if you experience freezes of the ps2 after a while of playing.
For reference, this is the share config I use:
comment = PS2 ULE share
only = yes
locking = no
ok = yes
If you experience network initialization freezes , you may have to open
the samba server port on your firewall.

The only thing I had to change in the smb.conf was "security = share". Then I
just configured the share with Nautilus (works similar as with Windows
Explorer): right click on folder --> share options --> tick
"share this folder" and "guest access" --> apply changes
That's all, share works fine
