Win7 x64 host with Virtualbox installed running Ubuntu 32bit guest OS. I have Samba installed and I am sharing a folder to have read access from Win7. The folders I tried to share (here 'folder1-3') have been added in the conf.d in etc/samba/ like this - I used these 3 variants, all showed the same problem:
[folder1] path = /data/mp3 read only = yes guest ok = yes
While I can connect to all of these from Windows and map them in Windows Explorer, I am unable to serve those files using my FTP server that is running on Windows. The folders simply do not show up when I add them as folders to serve in FileZilla. The problem I am assuming is causing this is the fact that FileZilla is running as a different instance and not on an administrator level. I cannot however add any users to the permissions list on the Windows side. The 'security' tab of the mapped folder shows the following Users:
EVERYONE root (Unix user oot) root (Unix group oot)
None of these seem to have rights to 'read' or 'list folders', the only permissions listed are 'special permissions'. Does anyone know how I can assign the group EVERYONE privileges to read and list files and then be able to serve this shared folder through my Windows-run FTP server?
I unable to connect to samba but after change the register (Windows7 - SambaWiki),I could login and map/access the share drive.but when I try to shudown/restart/logoff win7 , the screen just stop with windows logo without the shutdown/restart words coming out.
I just recently built a new linux server Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 and installed Samba version 3.5.4-68.el6.I copied a configuration file from an old Linux Server (Redhat Enterprise Linux 3.0AS) with a properly running Samba version 3.07131 . To make sure that everything will be ok, I created the same group and added the users on that group and created the same directories with the file name and attributes as that of the old server. Evrything seems fine as I can see all the shared folders on the windows XP and windows 7 Machines until I tried to write something on those folder. I keep getting the message that the action is denied and I need permission to perform that action. I do not know what to do next, hence this post.Below is the copy of my configuration file.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
I am trying to connect to a Windows 7 PC through Samba, and while samba can find the Windows 7 PC, it cannot access it, asking for a username and password instead. However, I can access the another Windows XP share perfectly fine.
a new hardisk and a reinstall later I find myself face with 2 problems now. firstly I followed, [URL]... which seemed to work fine, accross the network I can "see" all the workgroup computers. Now try login to karmic's or (other linux box) jaunty, can't find network path. tried turning off the firewalls, still no go. the two linux boxes can chat merrily, and the 2 windows boxes can chat, but to each other. however after fidling a bit , on karmic i now get
Quote: Could not display "network:///" Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations
so firstly how do i reinstall everything, the how deal with windows.
I have samba server. but winxp and vista supports to share files and folder.but windows7 not supported. i am using very old version redhat9. but i cant able upgrade lot of informations is there. please how can access folders in window7 through samba in redhat9.
I want to share files from my opensuse 11.3 laptop and Windows XP desktop. It works well between Vista and XP. The domain name is WORKGROUP I checked everything: firewall Opensuse (open ports), firewall XP (disabled), XP workgroup name (WORKGROUP), opensuse Samba workgroup name (WORKGROUP) And my domain controller is set to "Not a DC" Still when I launch network in Dolphin I get "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network"
I have mounted samba volume and I need to have write permissions for every new folder that's being created (currently, by default, on every newly created folder i have only read and execute permissions).I tried changing umask, but with no effect on mounted folder, umask changed only for local filesystem. I tried mounting with umask option, but with no effect again.I'm using ArchLinux on this machine, and I installed samba using default package manager (pacman).
I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.
Here is how I set up my firewall.
Code: iptables -P INPUT DROP iptables -P FORWARD DROP iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -s 127.0.0.0/8 -d 127.0.0.0/8 -i lo -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT I got the commands from here url.
I need to know is there any way to record or tracking or make logging if when user samba delete files or folders i can know that, cause sometimeon samba server some users complain they lost files, though i have daily backup and i can restore their files, i just want to know if or maybe some other users in one group accidentally move or delete the files.
Samba and access to/from my Fedora 11 system and my Win-XP or 7 boxes worked great. Then, I upgraded to F13 and although I can export with Samba, none of my F13 systems can see any Windows boxes.
I checked the services. SMBD and NMBD are running fine.
I checked the firewall and eventually disabled it totally. No effect.
I checked this forum for Samba configuration issues. All seem OK and consistent with other fixes seen here and elsewhere.
I loaded smb4k and it has the same problems - can't see windows machines whatsoever.
But here is what's curious. I also run VirtualBox-OSE and the Windows running in there CAN see my other windows boxes just fine (after I load the Guest Additions anyway). Therefore, there is nothing on my system that is firewalling the ports. The problem must be with Samba/F13 as installed or as updated.
I can't imagine anything about my network that is odd or cumbersome. I use no passwords on the private network anywhere as security is not an issue. I've been around Windows since 3.0 and Unix/Linux since 1994, so I'm no noob. But I clearly have some problem I'm not seeing or there is a serious bug in the Samba libraries somewhere. Or is my expectation of seamless operation like in the earlier days now just a dream?
I'm having problems with Ubuntu 10.04 samba PDC and windows7. I have a test network that I'm using to evauate 10.04 before I use it in production and have come across an intriguing problem with Windows 7. I have a clean brand-new installed Windows 7 ultimate and I have no problems joining the domain. (Standard registry modifications made). I can logon the window 7 box locally without a problem however when I try to logon using the domain the Windows 7 box accepts my password and start to load the user profile, at the point where the desktop would appear message is displayed to say "logging off" and returns me to logon screen.
What I have done to date: -- wiped Windows 7 box and reinstalled Wiped user profiles both local and on PDC (including all user information) Performed a complete uninstall of Samba (including TDB's) and reinstalled a fresh copy of Samba and manually edited the smb.conf is a minimum basic PDC I have no problems with Windows XP (SP3) box at any stage
i got 2 pc's on the same network, one runs linux ubuntu and the other win7 64bits. I installed samba for ubuntu since it seems to be the way to go to share folders and printers between linux and windows. Now I can see the folders on windows7 from linux but I cant see my linux machine on windows7.
I just installed a F12 server at home, replacing a FC9 server that ran samba to share media files. I had no problems connecting to samba on FC9 (the version escapes me, sorry) however Win7 seems to be fighting the F12 samba (v3.4.7) trying to do the same thing. I create a directory share, it shows up in windows explorer, but when I try and open it win7 tells me I dont have rights to it.
I created a printer share via samba, and successfully connected to it from win7 and use it as my default printer, and that works OK. I know win7 uses smb2 as its samba protocol, and that might be some of the problem (or all of it), but I'm not sure. I also have googled and saw that people have had had issues with samba as their domain controller while trying to join win7 into the domain, however I do not use win7 as a pdc at all. The solution for this seems to be registry hacks, but I am not sure they apply to me as I haven't seen anyone correlate it. Tailing the logs, this is what I see when I try and explore the file share from win7:
Code: [2010/04/26 13:09:56, 1] smbd/notify_inotify.c:421(inotify_watch) inotify_add_watch returned Permission denied
Now I have edited smb.conf manually in the past but to try anything I've even played with webmin to see all the options I might be missing, still my conf is fairly simple:
I see the movies share in win7, but it doesn't let me in. I tried disabling requiring 128bit encryption for NTLM as one suggestion but that didn't work. Also changing local security policies to send LM & NTLM responses, and that didn't work.
I've already set up my home network to work smoothly with Samba, mainly meaning that my HTPC running Win7 can share the user home folder. So currently is simply have a Nautilus bookmark set to 'smb://win7server/users/username/' and it connects just fine.
Now, I want to use 'mount' to make a connection to this same folder spot such that it is seen as part of the native file system. I've tried this: sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.2.101/users/username/ /mnt/win7server
But I get a 'wrong fs type' warning. WTF? I thought that windows was cifs? You guys have any pointers to how to mount this? BTW, I must absolutely mount this file system, as I'm running some programs built with Open Motif, which do not support Samba.
I installed samba and set one of the folders on my desktop to share with my win7pc. However, I'm having some difficulty getting it to work. If anyone can provide some insight, I would be very grateful.
Both my ubuntu-pc and my win7-pc belong to the same workgroup. Each pc can ping the other. The ubuntu-pc can "see" that the win7 pc is part of the network; but it cannot communicate with the win7 pc. The Win7-pc does not show that the ubuntu-pc is part of the network.
I've done this a million times, so sure it is something simple. I just set up a file server with three drives. One is small and faster that houses all the system files. Then the other two are slower but larger (WD Green: variable 5,400-7,200 RPM) drives in RAID0 then encrypted using Blowfish 256-bit. Hence the performance double then hit below in the buffered reads.
I have a desktop with ubuntu 10.04 with my whole music collection in it. I want to access it using my laptop and my brother's laptop, both running windows (vista and 7 respectively). All are connected to the same network.
so i found an older computer i want to play with as a file server. ubuntu server edition, installed gnome GUI (to make things easier for now, i plan on removing it later) and used [URL].. to configure my 1.5tb harddrive so my windows machines can access it. i had everything working but than a fatal crash made me start from scratch (os and all) now i am unable to access the samba share from a machine running windows 7, but i can access it from a machine running windows XP using the same login and password i set up for windows 7.this makes me believe it's a problem with windows 7 and not samba.
why cant I access samba share by short-hostname from win7.when I ping short-hostname, the answer is the actual ip and short-hostname.mydomain.com pinging short-hostname does work, but accessing it from start-run does not! accessing by ip or short-hostname.mydomain.com works fine.ssh by short-hostname from win7 works fine too.
I learn from many experts online, and finally it works but still happens some sharing problems that I can handle it in different way. Here is what I have, and hopefully we can share what we have successed: -Sles Linux 11.3 installed, Samba 3.5.4 server configured and started, no DNS or LDAP installed.
-added to smb.conf: client ntlmv2 auth = yes wins support = Yes wins proxy = No lanman auth = yes
Reboot and now Win7 can join the domain, but with an error message about can't change the domain name to... but I just ignore it, and it works OK with any shared folders, the same way for WinXP. The only problem is that it won't map the logon drive P: but I can apply the "logon.bat" instead. However, I don't understand all of what I have done to make it work as I just copied from other experts.
I have installed Slackware on MANY boxes over the years and SaMBa has always resolved hostnames via UNC (\slacksharename) on a local net, but I am now at a loss after trying this at home. A UNC to the share via IP (\192.168.1.123sharename) does work fine, but this is the 1st Slackware distro I have ever had problems with resolving a broadcasted UNC. Subnet is 255.255.255.0 w/ both machines plugged into a switch and they are "linked" fine and other versions of Slack worked fine... This is for a one-trick pony, SaMBa share only, but she is not doing tricks! My other Slack box 13.1.0 resolves a Windows 7 \hostnameshare request UNC fine on the same net. smb.conf (This is not the share I am going to use, but if once this works I can get a /dev/md mounted and shared with minor changes):

I have Samba guest shares working - win7 and android tablet see the shares. However, a media player just reports No Folders Found. The media player can see Win7 and Android samba shares. Here's the testparm -s
