Networking :: Mounting XP Network Drive On Machine Works Manually But Not On Boot Up?

Dec 13, 2008

I know this has been covered in many threads before, but I'm stuck not finding my exact situation or an answer. I'm a newbie using a Debian Linux machine as the client and Windows XP machine as the server. I have successfully mounted the XP Network drive on the Linux machine using commands from the root terminal:

mount -t smbfs -o username="Windows Username",password=windowspassword //XPcomputername/folder /mountpoint/

However when I put the command in the ect/fstab file as suggested in several posts, I don't get any result on boot up. I.e. I can't get the network drive to mount on start up, I always have to manually mount it from the root terminal.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Desktop Icon For Mounted Network Share

Jan 19, 2010

I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.

General :: Mounting A Drive That Isn't Yet Connected On The Network

Jul 16, 2011

I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?

If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting /var Partition As Network Drive

Mar 24, 2010

I'm setting up a server, and someone asked me (after I was done installing and formatting) whether the external hard disk attached to this server (with the /var partition) could also be mounted as a network drive for easy file transfer (i.e. drag-drop file transfer without ssh/scp or sftp). If someone has any ideas on how a pre-formatted (ext4) partition can be simultaneously made available as a network drive readable by a Windows machine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Network Icon Shows "lock" Icon When Trying To Connect

May 16, 2010

3 computers in the house run various windows based programs and everything is fine with them connecting to the internet as far as putting in the security password to log in and get online.My old back up computer that I use in the basement that has Ubuntu 9.10 was working fine with the secured network situation up until today.I booted up the computer this morning and it automatically connected as it typically does and I was reading some email and then the computer froze, which on rare occasions it does.

Upon reboot I got a window that asked for the password for the Network Manager Applet which I supplied and then it asked for the password for the secured internet connection which I supplied.It would not connect. After numerous tries of disabling the wireless and enabling the wireless and entering the Network Manager Applet password and the secured internet password I still get no connection.

I notice that when it is trying to connect, the window comes up on the screen that shows that there is reception from the modem, but there is also a little "lock" icon like I'm locked out of the connection.I finally found a way to get rid of the Network Manager Applet password problem but that still didn't alleviate the connection problem.

Fedora Networking :: Mounting Remote Drive On Startup

Nov 16, 2010

I want to mount a remote drive on bootup. I'm using FC14 and remote machine is FreeBSD. I've written a shell script to mount it. The script contains only one line:
Code:
mount 192.168.1.33:/home/user7 /media/mc33

I've to run this script from superuser mode to mount the file system(it works). So to mount it at bootup, I added the shell script to my PATH (/home/me/bin) and added it to Menu->System->Preferences->Startup Applications. Well this doesn't work because the root privileges are not present. I tried fixing it by giving root privileges to my shell script
Code:
#chmod +s mount-mc33
but it made no difference.

Networking :: Placing Squid ACL's In A MySQL Database?

Jan 11, 2011

I'm using Squid in our company network, to block access to certain websites. Some websites are blocked for all computers, except for a few. These computers are grouped in an ACL, in squid.conf

Since the group contains only a few computers, this is no big deal and it works fine. But now we wish to expand this to more computers and regulate access to certain websites per computer more detailed. This means that the ACL list in squid.conf will grow significantly and I don't think that is a good thing.

The best solution would be to move all the ACL's from squid.conf, into a MySQL database. However, I have no idea how to do that.

As far as I know, I need external_acl_type to do this.

Aug 2, 2009

I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:

Networking :: Not Able To See Eth0 In Network Icon

Jan 23, 2011

I was browsing the net very well and without any issues for the past 15 days since I installed FC14. Fantastic experience and then suddenly yesterday after nearly 2 hours of a smooth online session I lost internet connectiivity.At that point I noticed that the network icon on top was showing a red cross. After clicking on it I could NOT eth0. I specifically remember seeing it there before.I checked the cables and the setting to no avail and just could not get it back. Any idea what I should be doing to see eth0 in the connection?Also FYI I have been noticing this from day one since I installed FC14----When going through administration-->network-->One cannot see the red and GREEN activate button that I am used to seeing in FC9. In fc14 its greyed out. So I actually had to go and enter the /etc/init.d/network start command to change the status from inactivate to activate.Also the network manager does not seem to be managing eth01 as it does not appear as an entry in its console.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Network Share Mounting ?

Oct 8, 2010

I have 2 Ubuntu machines: a desktop in my bedroom, and a laptop.

I have my music shared on my desktop machine, and can access it through the network menu item in the nautilus manager, but I want the files from the share to be mounted on the disk so I can access it through the commandline.

If I right-click the shared folder in Nautilus, it says its location is smb://rob/music

If I do:

mount -t smbfs //rob/music /mnt/music, it tells me that it cant locate rob.

So I try "ping rob" and that doesn't work.

I can't make a hosts entry for rob which happens at this moment to be 192.168.0.8, because my router assigns different IP addresses to various machines at different times, and I cant seem to find a way to make static maps from MAC address to ip address.

So, how come nautilus can see my samba share on the machine "rob", but the mount commands cannot?
