I'm trying to set up a VPN connection between our CentOS 5.3 server at work and my bosses XP computer at home. At this point, we are kinda locked into Quickbooks. I'm testing the connection from my XP boot at home to see if it works. I can log into our servicemanuals easily enough from XP at home however, the windows takes forever to update. I have the Samba server only listening on port 445 because is seems to work more efficiently at work. I connect to the Samba shares via linux from home and everything works well but, when I try to do anything with the shares from Windows client at home, it's very slow!
I'm thinking that it must have something either to do with the Windows OpenVPN client or the client.conf file. Is there anything I should look at in the .conf file for answers?
I just set up an ubuntu 9.10 server (no desktop environment, command line only) and I'm unable to see my samba share. I followed these instructions. Here are the relevant parts of my smb.conf file: Quote:
workgroup = JASONGROUP # I un-commented this security = user
I have been using Ubuntu sense about 6.10 and never had to network with a Windows computer before. I have a decent understanding of Linux itself but I am having issues with this samba client. I have a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10 and am trying to use samba to access my shares on a Windows XP(SP3) computer. I am on the network just fine, and all the computers on the network have static IP addresses. When I go to Places->Network->Windows Network I see the "TITANNET" workgroup, (Even before I changed my workgroup to "TITANNET" in the smb.conf file.), but when I try to access it I get this error:
Code: Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server.
P.S. I tried using /etc/init.d/samba restart but it did not work, I am not sure I am even running the samba server. (Well, it is obvious I am not, what I really mean is what am I running to (not =D)access the shares on my Windows PC.) P.S. I know that this has probably been posted before. I have searched and searched, I am about 1.5 pots of coffee and 4 hours into this.
I've setup a samba server on a centos 5 machine and am trying to connect to it via a windows 7. The problem I'm encountering is that the only share I am able to connect to is the tmp share. It doesn't matter if it is a protected share or not, I always get a "network path could not be found error" when trying to open the share from windows.
Fairly new Linux user, running Fedora 12, attempting to set up a simple Samba share to share files with a Windows box. I've gotten to the point where I can connect from the Windows box, and see a home directory and the directory I'm trying to share. The home directory is accessible and works as expected, but when I try to access the other directory I get "The network path could not be found."
I have Samba PDC server on CentOS 5..we have 10 thin clients in our network which were working fine previously with the windows Terminal services... Now i have replaced my windows 2003 Domain to Samba Domain Controller.. Is there any why i can connect our thin clients with SAMBA DC in the our environment?
if i try to connect to my samba server ( share ) from my windows xp ( or vista, i've tried both ) it says, that the network share cannot be found. i've installed all necessary rpms on my fedora 10, necessary for running a samba server:
I've began to work on getting my access control, set up properly on my server, and want to create a "my documents" folder for each user I add. I do not want it being part of the home directory and have read everything and still can't seem to get it to work. I've got a second drive that is mounted at /private on my server, with a folder that is underlying on it call users and groups. Then from there is has the exact unix username that I set up in Users and Groups. Ex. /private/user/gary . With Samba, I added the following code:
[My Documents] guest ok = no comment = %u's Documents
I've tried using %u,%U,%S, and the normal username and of all of them, it will only work with the username. I've even used force user. added root to the valid users list and it still gives me access denied or the multiple connections to a single share with multiple user names prohibited but nothing is mounted on this share. On Webmin, it doesn't show any connections to the share. I'm rather at a stumped state in which is frustrating me, because I want to have this so when I go from my desktop to my laptop I have "My Documents" On either unit. Security on the server is set to User because I've searched to see if I can't find a way to make shares visible by a guest but read only to them and when I access them from my log in to make it read write using the "Share" option.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong with my Samba share. I have set up a directory /samba to serve up some movies, music, etc, on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server box. For now, I have given that directory 777 permissions, along with the subfolders:
Code: drwxrwxrwx 4 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 18:02 Apps drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:02 Music drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-08-14 19:27 Pics drwxrwxrwx 5 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:48 Video This is how my smb.conf file looks like for this particular share:
Code: [share1] comment = share1 browsable = yes path = /samba write list = michal Furthermore, I went ahead and mapped the Samba user to my Linux user account in /etc/samba/smbusers:
Code: michal = "michal" When I try to login from a Windows machine using michal as the username, I can see the folders, but I am unable to create new files on the share. Considering that the file system permissions are liberal on the share directory, I have no clue as to why I'm still getting denied write permission.
I can't be the first one with this problem. What am I missing?
I have setup Samba servers in the past, just none under SELinux. The last one I configured was a couple years ago, so I wouldn't doubt I'm a bit rusty.
---- Environment summary: Clean server install of CentOS 5.4 includes SELinux - lets call this 'server' - updated samba to 3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1
Client1 - Windows XP sp4 - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above Client2 - Windows Vista - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above
---- What works / what doesn't ------ Clients can see the server (XP and vista) in network neighborhood. The following does not work from windows (xp or vista) net view net view \server net view \server-ip net view \servershare
This does work on the server smbclient -L \server smbclient -L \server --user validuser smbclient -L \client1 --user validuser
---- What I have configured and tried (config/output below) -------- firewall ports for samba are open SELinux enforcing or permissive file context is set on share samba booleans are set

I am not able to configure nfs mounted disk for shareing samba. i have a server X. which configure samba for windows XP client this is done. now i have export X server samba share disk to mount Y server using nfs. this is mount and ok. but i don't share this disk using Y server samba configure.
I just installed UNE v10.10 on a new netbook and I guess I've become too spoiled using the Desktop's PLACES->Connect to Server because I can't find where this is in UNE. I'd also like to "bookmark" it so I can single click to connect to "crunch20/netshare2" (I have added ip for crunch20 in /etc/hosts).
I am running Jaunty 9.0.4. I used system-config-samba (gui) to configure Samba. I put myself as a user and tried to map the drive from my local PC. I am unable to map the drive. On windows, I try to connect using a different user and when I select finish, it prompts me again and adds my workgroup before my user name.
I have an Ubuntu server that's part of a Windows domain and requires Kerberos authentication when connecting to its Samba shares.I have an Ubuntu desktop machine that is capable of obtaining Kerberos tickets via kinit and can successfully connect to the Samba share on my Ubuntu server using Kerberos authentication via smbclient.
We have Ubuntu Server for samba share. We have windows xp clients working perfectly as client station.However, we are facing problem in connecting ubuntu client. Can anyone guide me, how to connect ubuntu client to samba share. (Not as root user)
Yesterday I reinstalled my ubuntu 11.04 and now I cant get samba to work. I allso installed Firestarter to get internet connection to my media center pc. In firestarter I have unchecked in the "advanced options" "block broadcast from external network".In my media center pc when I go network connection and view workgroup computer, I cant see my computer at all. If I try to ping my computer then everything is ok.
I am setting up samba on my CentOS server for the first time. I am using webmin to configure samba. Here is the smb.conf
[global] netbios name = KISKA cups options = raw load printers = yes server string =
I can see the domain name "KISKA" in the "network" tab of windows explorer, however when I click on it I get this error: Windows cannot access \KISKA check the spelling of the name. otherwise there might be a problem with your network. Under the details of this error I get this: "The network path was not found" Also I have stopped iptables so it cant be firewalled
I'm running 10.10 on a pretty fresh install with a brand new system I built especially for Ubuntu.For some reason, I'm beginning to have trouble with accessing my Samba shares from this computer. I have a Windows Home Server also running on my network and I have to be able to access the files on it.At first Nautilus showed "SERVER" in the folder tree when I clicked on "Network" and everything was working great. A couple of days ago my WHS "SERVER" suddenly no longer showed up in Nautilus and I had to mount the WHS server manually (via "Connect to Server...").
Now, today, even that doesn't work. When I try to mount manually I get the error "Failed to Retrieve Share List from Server". I can now no longer access the WHS from Ubuntu at all.Why has my ability to access the Samba shares on my WHS deteriorated over time to the point where I can't access them at all?? Any ideas?I have other systems on this network (Mac and Windows) and none of the others have any problems at all with the WHS. Re-booting WHS and router has no effect. I've changed nothing in my set-up. Is this update related?
I have a samba share setup as the following. When I browse to it from PC's added to my AD domain, they connect instantly. When i browse to it from a laptop that's not part of the domain, i get prompted for login credentials. what credentials should I be putting in? I can't seem to figure it out. or is it because i have the workgroup set to what my AD domain name is, and the laptops aren't part of that domain.
path = /data/photos browseable = yes force user = pictures force group = picturesgroup
I just recently constructed a computer to create a nice Fedora Linux server to replace a Mac Mini server that I have been using for a few years. I'm attempting to create a Samba share for my machines, a Windoze 7 machine as well as a couple MacOS 10.6 machines. I've set up Samba, started the service, allowed Samba in the firewall, and used system-config-samba to set up a share with a user. I created a User called "space", and a share /media/peliculas/Movies (a mounted hard drive). When I type in \IP_ADDRESS in the address bar in windows 7, I get the option to log in. I log in correctly and I see two directories "space" and "Movies." Unfortunately when I click on one of them I get the following error message:
Windows cannot access \IP_ADDRESSMovies Check the spelling of the name. Otherwize, there might be a problem with your network. To try and identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. I also get something similar when I attempt to connect with my mac machine. Using "Connect to Server" I type in: smb:\IP_ADDRESS, and login, I have the option to mount "Movies" or "space." If I select any of these, I get the following error message: There was an error connecting to the server "IP_ADDRESS." Check the server name or IP addres, and then try again. If you are unable to resolve the problem contact your system administrator.
Also, if I type 'smbclient -U space -L IP_ADDRESS' I can see the "Movies" in the "Sharename." At this point I'm not sure what else to do, and have been trying to figure this out for the last few days (losing sleep due to being baffled). The only thing that I can think of is that I have something wrong with the smb.conf file. Here is what it currently displays:
workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server Version %v log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50
One last thing, when I check the log files, there are error messages that state: smbd/service.c:1009(make_connection_snum) '/home/space' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [peliculas] Error was Permission denied --Windoze 7 and MacOS 10.6 log files
I'm running Lucid and and trying to get Samba set up to allow sharing files on my network. My problem is that my Windows laptop (Win7) can't see the Linux PC when I click on Network. It only shows my own laptop and my roommate's Vista laptop. However, if I manually connect to the computer (\serenity) it works just fine.
Right now I'm simply using the smb.conf that comes with the package and adding my share info.
When trying to connect to a Samba share, it requires to send the servernetbiosname. Let me try to describe it.At my university anyone has a personal web directory, which is hosted at another university. It's on a SuSE server, shared via Samba. There are several universities on this server, using the same Samba with different NetBIOS names.There is an open Cisco WiFi, anyone can connect. But to use it, you have to use VPN (Anyconnect for example or in my case the module Ubuntu provides).Now my problem is, I can't easily connect to any share on the server (tried several shares from several machine to be sure it's not just me). After trying several variants on bash, I finally figured out, that I have to supply the servernetbiosname to get it to work.Not working:
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
My server info: SUSE 11.3 , authenticated against LDAP, I am able to log in using LDAP credentials. I did run smbpasswd -w password
After I configured the smb.conf file, I try to do this on the Terminal to make sure it will work in Windows machines but I got this error:
user@mybox:~> smbclient -L mybox.mydomain.com Enter user's password: (I enter the user password here) Connection to mybox.mydomain.com failed (Error NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED)
so I went to /var/log/samba.log to check the error file, I got this :
Connection to LDAP server failed for the 1 try! [2010/12/10 18:08:50.919813, 1] lib/smbldap.c:1330(another_ldap_try) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 2 try! [2010/12/10 18:08:52.133624, 1] lib/smbldap.c:1330(another_ldap_try) Connection to LDAP server failed for the 3 try!
and it kept going on and on until I stop it.
Here is my smb.conf file, please take a look to see what I've done wrong here. I tried to to take out WORKGROUP in GLOBAL but there were error like " Work group name x.x.x.com is too long, so I put in WORKGROUP = etc.

I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
