Ubuntu :: Devicekit - Mount Samba Shares From Command Line?

Dec 1, 2010

Is there a way for a normal user to mount samba shares from the command line using devicekit? It seems like I remember there was a way to do it using hal, but that's been replaced by devicekit in Lucid if I've read correctly.

I can click on the shares I want in nautilus under "Network", but I'm using fluxbox and I'd like to mount a few shares at startup. I read the documentation for the udisks command, but I can't figure out how to get it to work with samba shares.

Fedora Networking :: Set Up Samba Using Command Line Terminal / Network Does Not Work

Nov 29, 2010

I set up Samba using command line terminal, and my network does not work. I have Samba username and keyring passwords all set, then I go to gui system-config-samba, and my samba user profile password is incorrect. In the past, I have used a 10 letter password, however, every time I boot the computer, I have to go back in and re-enter the password.I wonder if samba is truncating the password because it only accepts an 8 character password? I have deleted the user, and added a new username, and it is still doing it.

If I go into the gui and re-enter the password, usually I can get the network back up with my windows machine. All of the parameters are correct, I use the network to transfer files from my Windows to my Fedora drive all of the time when it works.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Can't See Shares On 9.10 Samba Server?

May 10, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 9.10 Samba file server. I have set up Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix in a home network which also has Windows XP home and Vista computers already present in the network. The XP and Vista machines have no problem accessing the file shares.

The server is running mhddfs with FlexRaid. The security is set to share level access. I have a hosts allow line in the smb.conf file to permit access to certain IP addresses and have added the 10.04 netbook remix IP address to this hosts allow line.

I cannot access shares from the 10.04netbook remix machine if the hosts allow line is active, but have no problem from the windows machines. If i comment out the hosts allow line, all machines can access the share, including the netbook remix machine. I am fairly new to Linux and would appreciate any help in solving this problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares Not Accessible On OSX?

Apr 26, 2011

I have setup Samba shares on my Ubuntu 10.10 and assigned different different username and password combination for each share.

The sharing works perfectly fine on all the Windows machines but it does not work on OSX. When I try to connect using OSX, it ends up showing waiting icon (screenshot attached) after entering username and password. (It asks for the login details after selecting the share from the list)

Following is my smb file content:

Networking :: Mounting Samba Shares From Different Workgroups?

Jul 19, 2010

So my brother has a home network that is setup with multiple workgroups (don't ask why - I have no idea and he refuses to change it). Anyways I just installed Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) on my mother's computer and I need it to be able to access the fileserver in her house where her data is stored. The Mint system is part of the default workgroup and can only see one other system in this workgroup.

The workgroup the file server is a part of is called "hobnw", the server's name is "fileserver", and the share I want to connect to is called "TV Shows" How can I connect to this network share on Linux? (I also know the username and password) When I browse the network under nautilus all I see is the default workgroup and no others. All of the Windows systems on the network (Windows XP, Vista, and Win7) all see and can access the file server without issues.

Networking :: Samba Can Mount Some Vista Shares But Not Others?

Jan 30, 2010

I'm having trouble setting up samba to work with my vista machine. Whenever I try to mount certain shares I'm getting error 13- permission denied. Specifically, I'm trying to mount my entire C: with this command at the console:

mount.cifs //windows_box/C$ /mnt/windows -o username=tyler,password=****

I've also tried:

mount -t smbfs
mount -t cifs

The funny thing is that I CAN mount some other shares, but not all. My distro is slack-current. I've been following as many relevant threads on this issue for a while now and have tried as many of the suggestions as I could understand, but it's getting to the point that I've lost track of what I've tried and what I haven't. Things I have tried:

Checking permissions on the shares: seem to be ok
enabling encrypted passwords: not sure if I did it right.
editing the registry for LmCompatablity

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares Not Visible On The Network?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to share some folders over the network, but the shared folders are not visible on another computer. This is through double clicking my computer from the Network list in Nautilus. However, I can access the share by typing the full address(<computer name>/<share name>) in "File > Connect to Server...".Since I can't type the address manually from my blu-ray drive, I need to get the shares to show on the network. What is wrong with my settings?

Ubuntu Networking :: Windows 7 Not Reconnecting To Samba Shares?

Jul 9, 2010

Been trying to deal with this one for some time, and still not sure it's more or an issue on the Samba or Win 7 side.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with Samba 3.4.7, using Windows clients from 2000 on up to access shares.

2000 and XP have no trouble both connecting initially to shares, but upon reboot the shares are disconnected and do not automatically reconnect unless one of them is double-clicked on. Passwords and mappings are saved such that Windows tries to reconnect upon restart. When manually reconnected in this way, shares remain open as they should. This isn't a big issue, but it would be preferable to have these shares reconnect so that links and shortcuts across the LAN work right from bootup.

The bigger issue is with Vista/Windows 7 - When shares are set up with appropriate passwords and such on the clients, they work as expected, until the client is rebooted. After signing into windows 2 things are observable:

- Black screen for 2-5 minutes before desktop appears

- error message appears when you try to double-click on a mapped share (even with a saved password) that the connection cannot be restored.

If you go into credentials manager and delete the saved password for the share(s) on the samba server, you are prompted for the password when you try to open any of the shares - reenter it and you're then fine until the next reboot.

There must be some issue with the persistence of the saved password, but not sure if this a Windows-side issue or not. Read some other info on this, and had to make the following changes earlier to even get Win 7 clients to connect to samba at all:

[URL]

It appears that when Win 7 starts up, it simply can't connect using the saved password, and the desktop doesn't come up until the reconnecting action(s) time out (if you disconnect your win 7 machine from the network the delay is not present).

It's not a game-breaker, but really annoying when rebooting having the delay and reentering the network share password(s).

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup Two Samba Shares On Server 10.04.1 Lts X64

Sep 24, 2010

I'm trying to setup two samba shares on ubuntu server 10.04.1 lts x64

The first is a Read-Only share for windows users that doesn't require a password. This i've managed to do so far.

The second is a Password protected Upload share. So far I am able to have both shares (which access the same directory) but am unable to log in to the pass word protected share.

I know i'm not doing things quite right, and would like a little bit of help

The smb.conf file is the default ubuntu file with these added shares:

Code:
[NAS]
Comment = Network Attached Storage
path = /media/RAID/NAS
browseable = yes

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.4 - Incorrect Details Of Samba Shares

Oct 17, 2010

Just set up Ubuntu 10.4 AMD64 on an old machine. We have an existing Ubuntu machine acting as a SAMBA file sharer. The other machines, windows and ubuntu have no problem in accessing files on the server. This machine reports that it can see the server on the network but instead of the expected data we see what is on the local machine. I admit I am out of my depth with SAMBA.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Accessing Samba Shares From Applications?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a NAS running Samba. My Samba shares are accessed from a Windows computer, it works very well.

With the kubuntu 10.04 computer, things are different : I can see the Samba shares in Dolphin, and copy files to the local drive, but lots of applications don't allow me to open a file on a Samba share.

Some applications such as OpenOffice let me browse to the share but refuse to open the remote file

Some other applications don't let me browse to shares at all.

What's up with that ? Surely I'm not the only one wanting to access files on a NAS ? How do other people do it ?

PS I chose kubuntu 10.04 because the 10.10 install hangs, the "ui" workaround I saw here and there did not work, the only solution offered was to go back to 10.04

Ubuntu Networking :: Non-Guest Samba Shares Not Working?

However, when I tried to use the manual way:

Networking :: Samba Requesting Password When Accessing Shares ?

Apr 2, 2010

I'm trying to do the normal setup of sharing some dir's on my linux machine using samba, to allow a windows laptop to access them.

I've managed to get the printer shared and this is allowing to send print jobs, which come out beautifully! however the actual file shares still aren't accessible

Depending on my settings, if I have security = user then when I access from the windows machine I get a username and password box - I dont want this functionality, I want the system to access right away as it would between two windows shares.

If i change security = share then it simply lists the shares, but tells me they are all inaccessible.

I've googled and searched here, tried various different things but I just can't see why/where its asking me for the username/password combo.

From /var/log/samba/smbd :

Networking :: Unable To Browse Samba Servers And Shares?

clean install of Slackware 13.1 64-bit. From day 1 I have been unable to browse Samba servers and shares on my home network. NFS, FTP, SSH, etc all seem to be working fine. I've been updating it regularly in case this was a bug, but I'm not so sure any more.

Reboot in WinXP sp3, I can browse fine. My wife's Win7 laptop works fine. My old Slack 12.2 system worked fine. I have not made any changes to the network other than adding this computer to the mix.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shares 'Unable To Mount Location'

May 23, 2010

on 10.04 I clicked to share my music folder with the network (other computer also having 10.04) and it installed samba for me. I restarted expecting to find sharing working as it had on the other computer by doing the exact same thing. But for some strange reason I can't access the shares on either computer through the network workgroup. It just says "Unable to Mount Location".

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Mount Samba Shares Between Computers

Oct 15, 2010

i have a ubuntu 10.10 desktop and laptop. i installed samba, and smbfs. i shared a folder on each computer. when i browse the network i can see the laptop from the laptop, and can see the desktop from the laptop, but i cant see the laptop from the desktop. when i try to mount the share it says unable to mount, but mounts it anyway...but, i need to be able to mount it so that rsync will see the shares as a dir on the desktop. i tried manually mounting via smbmount following several threads that i found, and i keep getting error sudo smbmount //192.168.1.78/share /media/laptop Password: Unable to find suitable address

that is as far as i've been able to get. i've looked and have only been able to find threads about windows shares, not between 2 ubuntu machines. and i dont know why laptop can see the desktop but not the other way around. they have identical smb.conf files
