Ubuntu Networking :: Mounting Shared Drive On Networked Machine [wubi]
Apr 21, 2010
I have a machine running Ubuntu 9.10 that has an external HD with shared folders music folder and media downloads folder). I have set up SAMBA on that machine.
On my laptop I am running a dual boot system with Windows Vista and using wubi install, Ubuntu 9.10.
In Windows, I am able to wirelessly connect to the shared folder and access the music folder and the media downloads folder on my Desktop Ubuntu machine. All is good.
When I boot in Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the shared folder under Places > Network I can negotiate to the MSHOME (the name of my work group). Once selected I get the error Failed to retrieve Shared List from server error message.
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.
My friend has a Windows 7 desktop with a large data hard drive which is set up to allow other users to connect to remotely, such that they have read and write access. To set up a connection from another Windows machine, it is as simple as right clicking in the My Computer window and selecting "New Network Connection", then entering the information requested.
The information my friend as given me is: - The IP Address - The Hard Drive's Name - A Username and Password
I have a Fedora machine that was installed with Linux LVM. I took the drive of that machine, connect it to disk enclosure, and connect to another Linux machine via USB connection. I can see that the drive /dev/sda is there:
Code: [root@dd ~]# /sbin/fdisk -l Disk /dev/hda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes .....
I want to copy files from this drive. I try to mount it, but it didn't work. The /dev/sda1 is mounted fine, but it has only boot stuff.
Code: [root@dd ~]# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/drive mount: you must specify the filesystem type How I can mount the drive and copy my files from this drive.
I have a shared directory on another machine but I can't get it to mount as a samba share. The permission denied doesn't say where/which permission is denied. Is it on the remote on on the local machine? The remote has sharing enabled for the shareddocs directory and after I have mkdir'ed the local mount point I open it's permissions too. The verbose response from mount.cfis looks like this:
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//192.168.1.102shareddocs,domain=WORKGROUP,ver=1,rw ,username=clive,,,,,,,,,,,ip=192.168.1.102,pass=** ****** mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Been using Ubuntu now almost 1 year and love it but I'm still mostly lost so I need someone to explain in great detail how to be able to access the My Documents folder on my LAN XP machine. I've been up and working fine for 6 or 8 months but all of the sudden (maybe it was an update package?) I get the following error message, after a long delay, when trying to access the shared folder:
Could not open location 'smb://office/my%20documents/'Failed to mount Windows share.I have set an icon on the top panel mapped to the XP machine and launched by launcher.
I configured Samba so that this laptop running Maverick would show up on the network so I could share files between the two. When I view the network on the laptop the windows shares show up, and I can access them; but when I view the network on Windows is when the problems start.
I view the network in Windows and this laptop shows up, but every time I try to open the Public folder (only folder shared) it won't let me in. I get some sort of Windows error message about being unable to access the folder and how I might not have permission to access it, and then at the very bottom it says something like 'file path not found'.
I tried to change the permissions in the properties for my public folder but I every time I tried to change the settings in the access box it would reset it back to blank (-) immediately after I changed it.
I'm not sure what the issue could be. Prior to purchasing this new laptop I was running Karmic on my old laptop and the networking between the two machines worked flawlessly. I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me with this problem.
I'm running Kubuntu 11.04 .I want to mount my home dir on another machine and log in to the remote machine with the same username and home dir. The problem is that the files on the mounted dir belong to userid 99 (nobody). For example:
I am trying to share folders between my laptop and desktop. The desktop runs Ubuntu 10 ,and the laptop I'm dual-booting between pclinux OS and another OS. I can't see either machine from either machine. The desktop shows a "windows network" when I go to the network location in file manager. When I run PC Linux, I can't even see the desktop which runs Linux as well, and I've tried to configure shares in the PC Linux OS Control Center, but I obviously failed. I installed gshare on the Ubuntu machine, and PC Linux has GUI tools(whew!) to configure NFS, SMB, and Deb-whatever the other one's name is. As a new convert, I've went into properties,permissions, because it's what I'm familiar with. I just wish someone would tell me if I should maybe just go back to the other OS or not, as I've had so many problems every since trying the switch. I really like this system, but it seems as if you need to be some kind of computer programmer or something to be able to do the most basic things (install software,wireless,share files). I'm not a stupid person, and what I lack in knowledge, I compensate for in desire to learn.
We have recently upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 64bit from 10.04 and 10.10 in a networked office in which our home directories are mounted on a server raid array. Ubuntu considers that the home directory is a local drive rather than on a networkWe have noticed that file preview are very very slow in 11.04 for pdf's and pictures in nautilus, causing a lag of around 10 seconds for each file. This can cause a problem for folders which hold multiple files which can be previewed. Preview worked fine in previous versions of ubuntu on the same machine, with the same network setup. Previewing of actual local files works faster, but is slower on 11.04, than previous versions.
Both the 10.10 and 11.04 systems are up to date with available updates (11.04 - 184.108.40.206 and 2.30.1 on ubuntu 10)Obviously, there is a work around for this problem - turn off preview. But, it would be nice to turn it on as its a useful feature.
I am under orders from She who must be obeyed that I must fully backup her data as she had a loss of information due to a hard drive failure.Presently I am having her make available her info as shared documents on her XP system and I am copying this data over to my Ubuntu (Karmic) desktop. I would also like to have a USB Hard Drive save the information in order that I can safely store this away from a live system.
So far things are working not too bad but She wishes to have all her backup that was available on DVDs and salvaged from posted material assembled as one complete resource. I can with some effort put this into some semblance of order but do not feel like doing the work twice.I would like some method of easily copying / transferring data to the external HD. Additionally I would like to be able to update data daily and be able to with minimal effort have this synced onto the external HD.
I have an external HD attached to my desktop and setup as a shared resource. I want to be able to access it from my laptop as well. After much trying and drinking, I ended up with this in fstab:
//crackbox/seagate /seagate -o
then began giving me an error about not recognizing the file system type. I've been reading everything I can find and trying to get it to work, and have come up with very little. My fstab now contains this line instead of the above:
Now, when I reload fstab with "sudo mount -a", I get this output:
Installed fedora/configued samba, shared printer and i am not able to access shared printer from any of the fedora machine. I am able to access the printer /shared folder from windows machine. I dont know the process of cups installation.
I recently installed Fedora 12 + KDE on my laptop. I also have a media PC which I have connected to my TV. It has an external HD connected to which I am trying to mount on my laptop. It is connected to two other PCs all running Windows 7, part of a workgroup that only requires a password with no user log in. These PCs are working OK but I cant mount the shared drive on my Fedora laptop. I have tried the "Add Network Place" wizard which didnt work. Tried using the host IP rather than the host name. This got me to a user authentication screen which prompted me for a username and password.
As I mentioned before, the only user authentication required to connect to it should be that the device should be within the same workgroup and use the password. Tried using the workgroup name as the username which didnt work, neither did using the PCs usual log in. Eventually I gave up on the wizard and attempted to mount it from the command line using the following command.
I successfully installed Samba, but have problem with access to any shared folder on my secondary drive. If I try access secondary drive with admin user, everything is fine. If with another account try to access via samba to shared folder on partition with Ubuntu, everything is fine again. Every folder has set privileges to read&write to everyone, so shouldn't be problem here.
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.
My configuration is: Linux Ubuntu 9.4 - samba client , Windows XP machine - samba server (shared dir)
While trying to mount a windows xp ntfs share from Ubuntu 9.4 I am receiving a "Permission Denied error(13)" message.
However when using smbclient I can browse the shared directory successfully (meaning all login details + domain are correctly entered). I ran an ethernet sniffer on the windows side (the one hosting the share) and saw that it refuses a connection with STATUS_INVALID_WORKSTATION
I will be running a network of +- 35 Ubuntu pc's from next year on. I have already started setting up remote desktop viewing utilities, but I now need a way to remotely shut down all the pc's at the same time, with a simple command as Admin. Setting up scripts to execute at a certain time is not gonna help, as the online time wont be the same all the time. I want to avoid having to remotely shut down each and every pc, as this will take quite a lot of time.
Ok here is the deal, I am allowing my neighbor access to some networked folders on my ubuntu file server in exchange for access to their washer & dryer. I have already created mapped drives on their xp machines but now I want to only allow them "read only" access so they don't accidentally delete anything?
Is it possible for 2 linux machines to mount the same space? The filesystem is Ext3 as mounted by the primary machine. I need to attach a 2nd machine to the same space to see the data for backup purposes. I've tried mounting but I get, "wrong fs type, bad superblock" error.
I have managed to get my networkdrive to mount on boot to a windoze share. however how can i get it to permently show the mounted icon on the users desktop?Its so simple a thing that there must be an easy way to do it.
If I DL something from the Internet It askes were to save. This is normal however even though my 2 computers are nicely networked I can't seem to navigate to the network to save onto the other computer.
So having recently set up my server (including some disk space and ushare, and an additional laserjet printer) I was wondering if anyone had any experience of putting a multifunction printer into an ubuntu server and adding it locally (to the server) then to the networked computers....I know this printer works perfectly (the scan too!) when plugged directly into a machine's USB....I suppose my real question is....does anyone know anything about the scanner side of it?? is this going to work?? I reckon the printer side will (/should - i know the printer works and i know the server can share printers.....lol) but the scanner side is relatively new (when put into the context of shared from my HS.Please note:My server is just running vanilla (plain) ubuntu 9.10....and my compo's are 10.04 and 9.10....ubuntu ONLY network...
I have developed a site in localhost in my laptop. Here are the specs: Ubuntu 11.04, Joomla! 1.7, Db Ver: 5.1.54-1ubuntu4, PHP Ver: 5.3.5, Web Server Apache/2.2.17
This laptop is connected to a wi-fi network. Task: I like to see this local site from my laptop to other desktop computers in the same network. I understand that I need to do some changes in /etc/hosts what changes I need to do to be able to see my localhost site in the network.
//192.168.2.100/e:/video /mnt_win_video ntfs defaults 0 0 And when I try: mount -t cifs -o username=usr,password=secert //192.168.2.100/e:/video /mnt/mnt_win_video I get: mount error: can not change directory into mount target /mnt/mnt_win_video
Back in school I remember using an application that would identify active IP addresses on a network, and basically show you a log of activity. We actually monitored another lab and went in and showed them what we saw (all the machines had IP addresses on the monitors.) We could see websites, bandwidth, etc.
I'm trying to find an application that would do this again. I've been trying to monitor my networks to see what machines are performing unauthorized operations. ISP is showing high bandwidth usage and there is no way checking email and browsing is using this amount, 200GB a month! Something is going on here.
