Fedora Networking :: Share Folders Between Windows 7 And F12
I want shared folders and files between my desktop (Windows 7) and my notebook (Fedora 12). I installed with YUM the server SAMBA and configured all according this tutorial (http://www.ubuntu-es.org/?q=node/130156)
also configured the firewall with Firestarter, allow all entries for the HOST.
The problem is that in windows I can not enter to notebook or by network interface or by ip address. and viceversa.There is another option for sharing files, or what I do?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Share New Folders With Windows 7 Or XBMC
I have had folder sharing under Samba working for several past versions of Ubuntu. I recently upgraded to 10.04 and my old shares are still working, but any new folders I attempt to share I cannot get to work, despite attempting multiple workarounds.
The Windows 7 error I get is:"Windows can't find "\MYSERVERshared_folder". The name might be misspelled."

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Network Share Folders
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 since 2-3 weeks. First I tried live CD and the OS seems to be very good. So i installed it on my laptop.So far i had no problems until I tried to access the shared network folders of my Server running on MS Windows Vista and another trial PC running WindowsXP. I'm trying to solve this since 2-3 days, I haven't found a solution.1st of all my network works fine. All computers can ping each other and as the laptop had Windows XP installed the server was accessable.1st I installed the SMB4k tool with this program. I could see the computer names, but as soon as I select a Windows computer the tool searches and nothing happens.
I tried a lot of different variations of this command but in the end I receive this kind of error. I also tried to add -o user=username pass=password, nothing changed.After this I searched information about this error, some forum threads I googled are telling the SMB4K tool modifies the /etc/sudoers file and cause this error. So i tried to change it back with some kind of sudo chmod 0640 etc/sudoers but this won't work it seems I can not modify or edit thisw file using sudo.With the pyNeighbourhood tool I could only see my Laptop but not the Windows PCs.At the end I will install Linux systems on all of my PCs, but only if all my tests will pass .

Ubuntu :: Share Windows 7 Folders With Lucid 10.04
I have Lucid 10.04 as my main system, which happily shares files/folders with other Ubuntu & Windows XP PC's around the house; but for the life of me I can't get Windows 7 (new Asus Notebook & older AMD Skt A PC) to share a thing with anything (unless all other PC's are running Win7 as well) - I have Win7 PC set as a workplace PC (not part of 'Home-group').
Also I can't remember how to change the Ubuntu network settings from default 'Workgroup' to my own group name.

Ubuntu Servers :: Share Folders With Windows?
I have been through a lot of sites and googled allmost everything to get an answer about sharing folders on a Ubuntu Server with Windows clients.
Every site tells me, that the only way to get from windows to the shared folders on a ubuntu server, is by using some extra software, installed on the windows machine.
Is this correct?

General :: Share System Folders With A Windows Computer?
I have a computer running Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit with Gnome and another computer running Windows 7 64-bit. How can I share folders between these? I can use Samba to view my Windows shares, if I specify the IP address by going to the "Connect to Server..." option in the Places menu. Going to "Network" in Nautilus and trying to open "Windows Network" fails because it could not retrieve the share list from the server.
MY question, though, is how can I set up Samba (or some other software) such that my Windows box will be able to see my shared folders? And also, what is the difference between Samba and Samba4 (because both are in the repositories).

Ubuntu Networking :: Share Files / Folders Using CLI?
I want to share certain files/folders with other computers in the network. Now I know how to do this in two ways: using the GUI and modifying the smb.conf file, but the GUI may not be available (e.g. connecting to the server using SSH) and the smb.conf file takes a little bit of time to modify (and from what I have noticed by using the GUI, the smf.conf file does not get modified). Is there a way to share files/folders using only the CLI and without the need of modifying files?

Fedora Networking :: How To Connect To Windows Share?
I'm running Fedora 13 on my laptop and am trying to share out a folder from a Win7 computer. Folder on Win7 machine is set to allow access to everyone.In Fedora, I have SELinux disable, I've made sure samba is allowed in the firewall, and that the smb service is running. There's no password on the Win7 computer, so in the Windows Share setting on Fedora I just put the username and left the pass field blank.
I've seen some things say all you have to do is go the the "Network" place...but somehow that seems to have become non-existent and I don't know how to get it back.Also, trying to connect to smb://WinShare/Share results in it saying that the server has timed out.

Fedora Networking :: Mounting A Windows Share In FC 10
Usually you put external mounts in the /mnt folder, then link there with a symbolic link if you want access from somewhere else. By keeping all of your mounts in /mnt its easier to manage them as your system and ability grow.
You need to make mounts as root. Mounts take the data in the target and put it on top of an existing folder. When you mount something on top of a folder whatever was there becomes invisible until you remove the mount on top of it. If there is a problem with a mount and it does not work, any writes to the mount will go to the folder underneath, and any data you expect to read from there will not exist.
In making a mount you should realize that the char requires an escape char in bash to show up in the final output to the command. The escape char is also . Therefore to show \ in a Windows command, you need to type \\. Also, spaces must be escaped once with .
You should substitute your ip or name for 10.10.9.5
Reminders: Make sure your Windows folder is shared read/write if you need to write to it.
You probably want to change permissions on /mnt/WindowsDocuments to 777
Tips:If you want a link from your desktop to your Windows "My Documents" folder you can now do this:
$cd ~/Desktop ln -s /mnt/WindowsDocuments WindowsDocs
This will make a symbolic link to /mnt/Windows, and if you execute: ls -l ~/Desktop you should see the links information in the response
Finally, if you want to keep a local backup of what's on the windows box in a local folder you could do:
The ~ char is shorthand for /home/<uername> and represents your home folder.
The result of the rsync command is to make a copy of WindowsDocs (which points to your mount at /mnt/WindowsDocuments which is linked to your Windows machine shared 'My Documents' folder) and put it into ~/WindowsDocumentsBackup
As always, make use of the man command if you get confused or the info command for more detail. ie man rsync

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Doesn't Share Folders In 10.04?
I have been looking in the forums but I found no solution for my problem.I already configured Samba and I am sharing folders, printers, etc. (Samba, authentification mode = user, guest account = nobody, share the folder give access to them, enable the permission to access, write, etc.) and seems to be working well.I am trying to connect a Windows to my shared folder in Ubuntu. The only problem is that Samba rejects it and doesn't ask for the password. It just drop the users (from Windows and Ubuntu systems) that try to access to my folders.So when it do in a Terminal sudo smbpasswd -a USERNAMEand I type no password, then it works they everybody can access to those shared but when I type any password then it comes back to the same problem that Samba never asks for passwords and rejects the users.
So the solution would be just give no password to share the files, but the other problem is that every time I restart the user session (restarting the computer, logging out, etc.) it just comes back to the same problem that Samba drops the users and doesn't ask for the password. Seems that every time I restart the system just forgets that I set no password.Another thing is that when I set authentication mode = shareThen nothing works. No password, no access just is possible to see it.

Fedora Networking :: Network Share Files With Windows ?
I am trying to both access files shared by Windows machines on my network, and I also want to share files on my Fedora 15 box. In Nautilus, if I choose the 'Browse Network' option on the left toolbar, I am shown a Windows Network icon. If I try to double click this, I am given an "Unable to mount location" error. Does anyone know why this is and how to fix it? Further, where is the GNOME 3 option to right click and choose to share a folder? Both KDE 4.5/4.6 and older versions of GNOME (at least on Ubuntu) had this. Is there a way to share files this way, and if not, is there some workaround?
