I have a Samsung CLX 3175 connected via CUPS to a Ubuntu box running 11.04. After installing the Samsung Unified Printer Driver as described in this post [URL] the printer works perfectly under Linux, I even got network scanning to work under Windows via TwainSane.
The big problem is network printing from Windows over Samba, though (although I thought that this should be easier to set up than scanning..). Even after hours of trying, I could not get it to print a single page spooled from my Windows computer.the print jobs do show up in CUPS as finished, but do not actually get processed. Could this be a rights-related thing? Depending of one setting in smb.conf (namely, "cups options = raw"), the printer even makes some noise and warms up when I spool a new job -- but it does not print.
My setup is the following:
- CUPS in the current version with Samsung Driver - Samba 3.5.8 - Windows XP and 7 clients
I have have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop pc and set-up a shared folder and a shared printer from the Ubuntu desktop. My shared folder works completely fine and is easily accessible by my windows xp laptop. My printer sharing initially worked fine and I was able to connect and print from the windows xp laptop. Unfortunately, after a reboot of the ubuntu computer the printer is no longer found by the laptop (the shared folder, however, still works fine).
I can get the shared printer working again by using the following command to restart Samba: - sudo service smbd restart
After restarting Samba, suddenly my laptop can see the printer again. I don't particularly want to have to restart Samba every time I boot up my computer. I understand I could probably make a script that would restart Samba automatically after booting or logging in, but I would rather fix the actual problem than use a workaround like that.
Using 10.04. I use one machine mostly as a printer server: If it goes down for whatever reason I want to restart without having to enter any password. Samba seems to start and allow file shares, but does not start the printer sharing so I must manually enter "sudo restart smbd" to allow the printer sharing. From reading the various threads I guess that the samba "start command" is before the printers are "initialized" and thus are not "setup". So how can I make the samba "startup" last after everything else? I am not enough familiar with all of the commands to understand the thread posting to make it work.
We are running RedHat Enterprise Server 5. We have a Windows 7 Pro with an HP Printer attached to it, and shared. I can see the printer in RedHat, but everytime I send a print job, it just does nothing but sit there. I've even tried to attach to it via smbclient, and I get the following response: tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
The problem is it won't. I have an Ubuntu (11.04) computer cabled to a Belkin wireless router. The Brother printer is usb connected to the Ubuntu box - there is no problem printing directly. However, I need to print from a separate wireless connected Win7 box to the printer on the Ubuntu box and this does not work.
The Win7 can see all other Win computers on the network, but not the Ubuntu. Answers at my level gratefully received (eg: it took me two weeks, many hours and 3 re-installs to get dvds to play on Ubuntu 10). Current printer sharing information on the internet is either hopelessly above my head or outdated.
I just installed an HP Officejet 6200 on a Slackware 12.1 machine. It uses a USB interface. If I am on the machine, I can print to it with no problem. When I am on my Debian or Centos machines, I cannot. I have midified the cupsd.conf file to allow everyone to connect to it but so far have not had any success. Port 631 is open on all machines. I have explicitly added a hosts allow 192.168.0.0/24 line in several portions of the conf file with no luck. If I use the cups interface on any of the machines using localhost:631 as the address, I can not only see the printer I can print to it, but I noticed, I am actually attached to the Slackware machine where the printer is located. Can someone suggest a debugging method to help?
I am having problems trying to share a printer on my desktop. The printer is an HP Laserjet 1020, and the desktop is running 64-bit Ubuntu Karmic. None of the other boxes on the network (wired/wireless, 32-bit/64-bit, Ubuntu Lucid/Win7/XP) can access the printer.
I have checked all of the appropriate boxes in printer properties and server settings. When I try to install the printer on the other systems, I am asked for a username and password on the desktop. I set up a user named "printer" and gave it a password, but when I try to use that username/password to install the printer on one of the other systems, I get an "access denied" error. All of the networked systems can see each other, and access shared files.
I have got a wireless network in my house with a router as the hub and my Linux Laptop and Macbook connecting to it. I have got a wireless Kodak printer which the Macbook uses, but they do not have any drivers for Linux. I have enabled ssh for both the laptops and have enabled "Print sharing" on the Macbook. Can I access the printer from the Linux laptop via the Macbook? When I have sshed to the macbook, the kodak printer comes up in the list of printers to choose from...but the printing job just goes to the queue, but does not actually complete. Is this because I have not got the drivers for the linux laptop?
I installed it on a desktop today to try it out. So far I'm loving it and have gotten everything to work except for one thing:
There's a printer connected to it (HP PSC 1600), and I'd like the other computers on the network to be able to print to that computer. The other computers are running Windows 7, and one is running Snow Leopard.
When I plugged in the printer, Ubuntu recognized it almost immediately and installed it. Wonderful! I then went ahead and set it to be Shared, and hoped for the best. Neither the Windows machine or the OS X machine could find the printer...even after I pointed them directly at what I thought was the CUPS address (\mycomputername:631). To make matters even more confusing, I was able to set up shared folders and have the other computers be able to view them.
I have a Lucid server with several external (eSATA) NTFS formatted drives. Right now, I'm sharing everything through Samba and administered through Webmin. Partly because I'd like to play with it and learn more and partly to see if there's any appreciable difference in overhead and speed, I'd like to try out NFS.
My question is, can the two sharing schemes (NFS and Samba) coexist on the same box peacefully?If not, I can rid of Samba and go with NFS, but I'd rather give it a shot first.Plus, some of the clients are Windows machines, so I'd have to install the SFU tools in order to get an NFS client on them.
the second drive is mounted on /media/Sifl_80GB and it was formatted as ext4.
My windows machines see the 80GBshare entry but I get the error "network path not found" when I try to open the folder. Does this mount need to be listed in my fstab for this to work correctly? I'm noticing something in the comments of the smb.conf for auto-mounting a cdrom drive when a cdrom drive is accessed by adding a fstab entry, so I'm wondering if this needs to be done with my second drive?
I have a Fedora 11 box with an HP Laserjet 1000 (connected by USB) a Windows XP machineBoth are on the same network. I am desperately trying to share the printer to the Windows XP box using IPP. The Windows XP machine recognizes the printer queue, configures correctly and then ... nothing. It simply does not print ! Printer sharing worked perfectly in Fedora 10, with CUPS 1.3, but something seems to have broken.I used the guide available at this adress and tried all mentionned possibilites
I'm looking for a SIMPLE solution for printer sharing. I have an HP printer attached to my Linux host (prints fine from there). I want my XP box to be able to use this printer as well. I can ping my XP box from my Linux box (and vice versa), and the XP box has the HP print driver installed.When I go into my XP box and try to add a printer, I click "A network printer or a printer attached to another computer", then "Connetc to a printer on the Internet or on a home office network" and enter my printer.I'm using the printer name as show in CUPS. I also tried it without port 631. Either way, I get an error message saying "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server.
I have: 1) A desktop PC running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Virtualbox guest, Windows XP. My printer is connected and operates via XP. Yep, its a Windows-only printer, but the VB file-sharing allows me to print Ubuntu files. 2.) Another desktop running Puppy Linux. 3.) A netbook running XP as a native install.
No. 1 and 2 are connected to a Level One router by ethernet cable. No. 3 is wireless. All 3 machines work fine independently, with no problems accessing the internet. Getting these machines to "see" each other seems to be harder than falling off a log! How to share files and the printer, especially on how to configure the router. The manual that came with it doesn't seem to explain how to do this. It assumes that all your devices are either wired or wireless, with no hints about how to network wired and wireless machines together.
my main computer hostname is home, and the others are ubuntu and eduardo.In home, I try to configure samba, downloading it with "sudo apt-get install samba" and then downloading at the synaptic manager the samba-common-bin thing.I shared my folders as ROOT in home and I cannot access from ubuntu and eduardo.Then I googled and I found this site: Quote:URL]Well... I follow all steps and I can't access these files.What I need to do to share files between these computers???
I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba
Code: [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server netbios name = oak security = share
I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?
I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server. Two users: chris and gretchen Directory to share: Music Music resides in chris' home folder.
I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:
Created user accounts for each Created Samba accounts with passwords for each Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it Assigned the family group to the Music folder. Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.
chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.
I finally have my ubuntu up and running. I have a USB-drive which is often connected to my Ubuntu-machine. I want to share this via Samba but I can't set the user-rights. If I try to acces the file (via windows machine) I can see the directory but if I open it it gives me: \Computermediadirectory is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. I tried setting the rights but it just 'changes back immediately'. I found some posts about not being able to set rights via ubuntu on a ntfs disk. If I mount it via fstab it will give an error when the USB-drive is not connected. So that's no option. Is there a way to share this drive via my Samba server? I did get access to a partition on my linux-machine, to I assume my samba-settings are correct.
I am running OpenSuse 11. It runs Apache webserver and Samba for filesharing. I am also running webmin. Everything works 100%. I have 2 shared folders that can be accessed by everyone. My question is how can I log in to the shared folder from a windows machine when I set the permissions for only a certain user to log in. My system hostname is Linux.site and my user is henk. I am not sure how I need to log in that way. Should the username be Linux.sitehenk ...
My new Shuttle runs Debian fine, but like most new systems, the old serial and parallel ports are long gone. I have no problems with the serial port - there is a Sourceforge driver to use with most PL-2303 type USB to Serial adapter cables. But, I am having trouble googling up the USB to Parallel connection. There are no lack of USB/Parallel cables, but all that I have found come with canned software for Windows and only for connecting a printer. I have several non-printer devices that connect via the P-Port that I access using a Perl driver from CPAN. Anybody know of an open source *nix driver for any particular USB/PP cable? Or had any experience in moving from the straight PP to a USB/PP connection to a non-printer device?
I set up a Ubuntu Server for my home network to share among Win XP and Ubuntumachines.Initially everything worked fine with all Win XP machines being able to share files on the server; however, after I installed and setup SSH between my Ubuntu machines and my Ubuntu Server I now cannot share and/or even see my Server directory from Win XP or Ubuntu machines through the Samba.I have tried for 2 days to figure out the problem without success.Did I break something while setting up the SSH? How can I fix Samba?Here's some things I have setup or tried so far:1. Samba users are setup and were working previously.2. Samba share drives were setup and working previously.3. I can see the Server using SSH or SFTP from my Ubuntu machines.4. I have gone over the Samba config file numerous times5. I am administering Samba on the server via the terminal and Webmin
