Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files Not Working Between Two Ubuntu 10.10

Nov 26, 2010

I read some tutorials and installed samba and everything they said so that I could share files between the two computers in my home connected by wireless. After installing samba I opened it from System>Administration. Then I selected add a samba share. On the basic tab I specified the folder I wanted to share. Gave it a share name and description. Then I checked both writable and visible. In the access tab I selected allow access to everyone. After doing that the other computer can see the shared folder but cant copy it and can't even see anything inside it. While trying to copy it says "You do not have previlages to copy" or something like that.

Ubuntu Networking :: Public Files/network Sharing Not Working?

Mar 21, 2011

So I want to put some of my folders on my network. I open up nautilus and go to my home folder and right click -> properties-> share and then selected share this folder, made it so that others could modify stuff on it and have guest access (which is what I want), and changed the share name to "home". Then I clicked create share. I then went to Places->Network->******'s public files on [the name of my computer]. But then some stupid error message popped up saying:

"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files From Pc To Pc?

Aug 6, 2010

i would like to set up file sharing from one ubuntu pc to another wireless laptop.I found samba on the internet i installed it and i can share files but it's slow a 700mb avi file was going to take 2 hours and from what i read samba is for sharing files from linux to windows.I also found ssh that to is slow also i think it goes over the internet or something like that.So is there any other way to share files that's faster or have i forgot something.I only have 2 ubuntu 10.04 computers and 1 open solaris but the open solaris i will not be putting on the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Media Files On A NAS?

Mar 23, 2010

I thought I would try and be clever but have become stuck! I have bought a NEtgear ReadyNAS with a view of copying all sound files and photos to one place. I have a wired home network and a Windows XP PC which I have mapped the NAS to as a network drive.Then came the Linux bit. I have a laptop which I want to do the same with. I have set up the NAS so that it operates with both CIFS and NFS file systems. I can see the CIFS file system in the Network part of Ubuntu 9.10 but am having trouble in getting programs to see it. Ideally I want to use F Spot or Picasa to view the photos and then also use one of the audio packages to play music around the house. When I ask F Spot or Picasa to search for files or folders, the network does not show up in the list.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get File Sharing Over Wlan Working

May 23, 2010

I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File-sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2010

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

[Code]....

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting The File Sharing Working In Gnome 3?

Apr 29, 2011

trying to share a few folders with Windows PCs. Usually I just right click and choose "Sharing Options" from nautilus and choose to share it. This isn't there in gnome 3 via gnome3 ppa for Ubuntu. I've tried installing and adding the folders I wanted using samba configuration tool and gadmin-samba tools. I've also installed just about anything that could potentially have anything to do with file sharing from synaptic including:

samba, nautilus-share, smbclient, windbind

and whole lot of other stuff in hope that I had just been missing stuff. I also booted my laptop which is running 11.04 with Unity and I right clicked and selected "Sharing Options" like the usual way and shared a folder and then installed gadmin-samba and the samba configuration tools and the folder I shared wasn't included there. Meaning it isn't using the same thing? Also the only thing installed when shareing a folder is samba and some libpam-something. Two files! Then shares perfectly! Why is it so difficult to set up a simple share with Gnome 3? No matter what I do I boot into Windows on my laptop and try to connect to my network share the same way I always have and it doesn't work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files Over Wireless With Other Computers

Mar 11, 2010

I got my somewhat older desktop running ubuntu 9.10 and I'm loving it so far. However a while ago while I was slightly intoxicated I boasted to my roommates that sharing files with this thing should be super easy, since it's linux and all that. Since then I've been trying to set up the desktop as a streaming media server, with no success. I found a pretty good guide on how to get Samba up and running on instructables. My laptop is part of a school domain. Since many of my roommates go to the same university, theirs are also part of that domain.

For those of you who aren't too familiar with Windows (anymore), your computer can either be part of a workgroup or a domain. A workgroup is intended for home networks and makes it easier to share files, which is what I'm trying to do, and what the guide calls for. I've illustrated the problem in the attached image. As you can see both computers connect to the same router. I don't think I really have to explain, but I just figured I should try to be as clear as possible.

My question to you is: is there any way that I can set up the ubuntu desktop, or samba, so that it can share files over the wireless network at home with the computers that run windows and are part of the school domain? I'm guessing I should somehow be able to access the desktop from another computer on the same network if I give it proper access. I just have no idea how to do it or where to look, since almost everything I encounter calls for putting the windows machine in a home workgroup.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Sharing Stoped Working?

Dec 1, 2010

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

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files Between Desktop And Laptop (Windows 7)

Sep 11, 2010

I followed these steps to try and connect my Desktop(Ubuntu) and Laptop(Win 7) together so they could share files.

Code:

sudo apt-get install samba
sudo su
cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.comf_default
gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

[code]....

sudo su was not originally in the steps but it wouldn't give me permission to edit the samba file unless I did.Also at the end it said command not found or something like that when I tried to restart samba, so I just logged out and then back in.So now I can identify Ubuntu and Win 7 from on each other, but I can not access either of them. Ubuntu goes into windows network, then workgroup, shows the computers on the network but when I try to access one this comes up:When windows tries to access Ubuntu it request for username and password. I type it in but it does not recognize it.

P.S. I allowed the Documents folder on Ubunto to share across the Network, and while it shows up in along with myshare on Win 7, it still requests for username and password.

Networking :: Printer Sharing Isn't Working

Jan 31, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Internet Access And Local Files/server

Jan 16, 2011

i would like to setup one of my old pcs as a file server and internet gateway; we are living in a large building shared with 40 others. the ubuntu box would be the one connected to the internet via ethernet and sharing connexion via wifi. i haven't started yet - presently, i am doing the ground work and reading before to start i understand sharing the internet is relatively simple and can be done from the GUI

What we would like is slightly like BT Fon or BT Open Zone in the UK: you can hook on a free network but in order to access outside (internet: email, web, ftp, etc) you need to login login would help us monitor fair usage. I imagine something with username and password for each user would do: as we are a few in the same building not everyone is actually paying for the connection and we don't want to end up with rather large excess bills. So the ones who are paying access both files and internet; those who dont just have access to the files on the local server.

Do i need Ubuntu server to set this up? What hardware would be ideal - given we are all far from rich but willing to have a nice setup

It would be great if you could share some knowledge around the topic and eventually provide some tutorial; also any heads-up on the hardware side would be great! (signal booster, etc - there's 3 floors and 3 buildings)

Fedora Networking :: Can't Get NFS File Sharing Working

Feb 24, 2010

So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)

So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Personal File Sharing/share Files Doesn't Work

I'm using 10.04 beta...

If I go to system - preferences - personal file sharing, I cannot select "share files over the network." The panel is greyed out and the message "This feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your computer" is shown

It ever so usefully doesn't tell me what those packages are though! - It'd be nice to have more useful error messages or the ability to click to install them...

Anyway, what do I have to do to get this going again?! I've installed everything to do with samba, webdav that I can find but still no cigar...

Ubuntu Networking :: Slow File Sharing \ Copy Some Files From Laptop(also Running 10.04) And Getting Around 300-500 Kb/s?

I recently got my D-Link DWA-556 pci card working with my new desktop with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. Connection speed is good, but local network file transfer speeds are pitiful. I'm trying to copy some files from my laptop(also running 10.04) and I'm getting around 300-500 kb/s, which is actually lower than my typical download speeds. Anyone know what the problem might be? output of iwconfig is this:

CentOS 5 Networking :: Internet Connection Sharing Not Working?

Jun 9, 2011

I am fairly new on CentOS and am in the process of setting up a small home office network that shares Internet access through the Linux (CentOS) box.I have two network interface cards The Linux box is also the DHCP server. My challenge is to get the client machines to access the Internet! I have a PPP connection to the ISP. Essentially I followed these Instructions CENTOS REDHAT Internet Connection Sharing. Pretty straight forward but I am still not able to get clients to access the Internet. I defined the DNS server through DHCP (196.44.x.y). I assumed it has to do with default gateway and it is set as follows: on the Linx box the gateway is my ppp0 link. DHCP uses eth1 (LAN card) fixed IP as the gateway. All clients are reflecting this information. The firewall (iptables) is reflecting the FORWARDING and POSTROUTING rules as advised.

Is there a step I mioght have missed to get this working? I tried to Google but its not getting me far.
