Fedora Networking :: Sharing And Networking - "public" Folder Did Not Become Open Until I Entered The User Password
Jul 28, 2009
I am an old Ubuntu user and have just strted running F11 on my iBook. I always run system-config-samba on all my machines including my server and even on my work server which shares with windows, Linux and OSX and have found it to be perfect. I installed it straight away on the new Fedora system but It doesn't seem to be functioning the way i expected it to.
I installed system-config-samba and then set up one share folder "Public" with open read write privileges and then turned off the Fedora Firewall all together. But "public" did not become open until I entered the user password for the fedora machine. But, then I could see all folders on the Fedora machine. Even root on the fedora machine became write-able on the network. This was not the desired effect at all. I am assuming fedora is using a non system-config-samba file share system that I am unfamiliar with. what is it? and how does it work?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook Remix on a Dell Mini Netbook 9 (I think that's what it is.) I used to be able to connect to my wireless internet fine, but then my brother put a password on it. So there's a little box that comes up and tells me to enter a password now. I do, and it tries to load for a minute and then wants me to enter my password again. It just keeps going like this.
F12 / Gnome 2.28.2 I'm just trying to share the /home/Public folder with my Mandriva laptop. The "manual" on Gnome's website doesn't give much info, other than clicking the option to share the folder and deciding whether to use a password or not. There has to be more to it, otherwise it'd work.
All I'm looking to do is copy files to and from the folder on the desktop machine from the laptop..
I'm running PCLinuxOS with no other OS installed. Thought I'd have a go at chainloading. just for interests sake.So, I opened Konsole, entered su and entered my root password. The command line turned red so, I imagined all was well. But when I then keyed in '/boot/grub/.menu.lst' I was refused access.
I install Fedora 11 for file sharing from windows client Win 95/98, Win xp & xp home. I can login from win xp & xp home to access folder but I can't login from win 95/98 to access folder. I got the error message... "The domain password supplied is not correct or access to your logon has been denied". from win 95/98 Desktop computers.
So I want to put some of my folders on my network. I open up nautilus and go to my home folder and right click -> properties-> share and then selected share this folder, made it so that others could modify stuff on it and have guest access (which is what I want), and changed the share name to "home". Then I clicked create share. I then went to Places->Network->******'s public files on [the name of my computer]. But then some stupid error message popped up saying:
"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"
I've been trying to share a folder with samba. This folder is the decrypted version of an encfs encrypted folder. Mounting the decrypted folder on the server is done automatically on login using gnome-encfs. Exposing the folder locally works like a charm. Now where I get stuck is trying to access the samba share from a client (even with smbclient on the server itself). I can see the share with smbclient -L:
Recent refugee from Ubuntu here. Fedora fan for one month.I have two computers that access the Internet through a router. They are assigned IPs dynamically by the router's DHCP. I need each computer to be able to "see" some shared folder on the other one, with RW permissions to that folder and its content.I want to use Nautilus to access those folders from each computer.
Tried NFS, Samba, gnome-user-share to no avail.
Willing to kill Fedora's firewall forever in order to ease folder sharing.Can some kind and knowledgeable person try a step by step setup guide for this? As an 8-year Linux user I am not afraid of command line interfaces.
Using my laptop, I'm trying to get onto the local library's wireless network, with zero results so far.Basically, I can see the network, but when NetworkManager tries to connect it just spins for a few minutes and then rejects the connection. (Or the connection is rejected by the router) My wireless connection works fine when connecting to my WPA home network.
I am running OpenSuse 11. It runs Apache webserver and Samba for filesharing. I am also running webmin. Everything works 100%. I have 2 shared folders that can be accessed by everyone. My question is how can I log in to the shared folder from a windows machine when I set the permissions for only a certain user to log in. My system hostname is Linux.site and my user is henk. I am not sure how I need to log in that way. Should the username be Linux.sitehenk ...
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
I installed lxadmin and now when I try upload files to my lxadmin users public_html folder I get the following message. Cannot write to `backup.zip' (No space left on device). After checking with df -h i noticed / is full.
F10 trying to key in static ip address. Have followed guidelines on turningoff NetworkManager and turning on network. i went to command line and did a couple of chkconfig things and entered ip address, with subnet. when i do ip addr show i see under eth0 inet 192.168.3.11/32 which is 255.255.255.0, i'm pretty sure. i do not see gateway. when i go to system/network get prompted to log into root, network config window opens. icheck eth0 and the subnet mask is 192.168.3.1, the gateway, which is in correctly, in the gateway slot, as well. i still can not ping to from my xp based multihomed router.
I have a problem with my ubuntu account. I am running 4 virtual machines, based on jeos-8.04 and I am using a public key authentication to login to my account (via ssh). This is not the problem, I have the key and the passphrase. But when I am logged in, I can't sudo, because I forgot the password for the accout.
I was wondering if it was possible within Ubuntu to:
a) Make a shared folder to the extent that people can view it but to access/open it requires a password. b) Set that folder to have a set size (quota) so that people putting files onto the store/folder don't flood my computer with video/music.
I am currently at Loughborough University and am on their LAN as I type.So guys/gals are there any programs on the synaptic that do such a job or does Ubuntu already have an inbuilt way of doing that.
been looking for a easy way for simple users (newbies) to share folders over the internet with friends. I found almost nothing about it, in both Windows and Ubuntu, as people usually recommend online sharing (as dropbox and Ubuntu One, which is not what I ask for) or ssh, ftp and related, which are usually not trivial to set up for simple user and you need to install a nice GUI for the client.Why isn't there a simple way as a right-click menu option, then choosing some user/password and having it available over some iport? Something like local network file sharing.This seems like an incredible tool to have.
I have windows 2003 server which i stored some important data that the workstation will connect it or access by thru network connection...
My current setup is: i have a linux distro i used mandriva 2009 and i installed samba...if i used windows to browse in network i can see the name of the pc of linux and i can able to access the linux shared folder.
My problem is if the linux try to access the windows 2003 thru network it seems to be nothing happened coz everytime i click the linux network it shows me a blank after a few seconds...
I really dont have idea if there is any requirements for the windows.
I really want to implement the linux workstation but i still have a big problem issue in networking.
I've looked at all 250 threads that come up when I search "Windows network password" and can't seem to find the answer. On my win7 box, when I try to connect to an Ubuntu share on my ubuntu box, it asks for username and password. I have tried my ubuntu username and password, the windows networking password, and my win7 user account name and password, and I cant get in.
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
I installed ubuntu in a desktop pc and without configuring anything i had my network working: 1 windows 7 pc which is sharing a folder with other 3 windows pc and with my ubuntu pc. Yesterday as every day before i entered into win7 shared folder from ubuntu but it asked me for a password which was not set up in win7 pc.
I have created a shared folder via nautilus. I can not access it, because it asks me for user name and password again and again. I'm sure both username and password are exactly right. But I can not access the folder. Only when I check "Allow guest user access" it will allow me to access my data, Which is not secure enough for me.
