Ubuntu Networking :: Access Machine Via Windows Machine - Samba Password Reset?
Feb 13, 2011
I try to access my ubuntu machine via my Windows Machine (Samba Server on Ubuntu Machine). Anytime I try to access the machine it asks me for my password...I enter it but it says it is invalid....is there anyway to reset it? I have already tried to remove and purge everything Samba related and then tried reinstalling, but that still didn't do anything
I have ubunto desktop 10.04 LTS I installed samba and able to access the share on windows machines. However i want to access the share on 300 windows machine(for example) systems at a time Is it possible.
I need to access a Windows Server 2000 machine using a Linux machine via KDE, but that will migrate to Gnome. The Linux user to connect to Windows machine, you should open an application 'XYZ' automatically, and only this, denying any unauthorized access. When you close the application 'XYZ' communications (RDP?) Should be terminated. Do I need a log of accesses and possible attempts to circumvent the system and access other application.
Right now I just installed open ssh because i was told its a great thing to have for remote controlling my machine if I am at work on my windows system. My question is, how on earth do I acess my machine from my windows machine now that its installed? i did sudo apt-get ssh and thats about all so far...
I'm the Administrating the computers in my office. I want to monitor the user's activity. How can i remote login without distrubing the user's activity on his computer? Any software need to be installed? (I don't want to use Terminal server client).
Yesterday, when I was installing Redhat Enterprise 5.4 on a HP server, I asked myself "how can I regain my access to the server if I happen to forget the root password?" I knew there must be a way. I consulted with my friend "Google". I'd like to share it here as my 1st post (too bad that I'm not allowed to paste screenshots)
1) Boot up the server, when you are at the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server..." entry, press "e". 2) Highlight the "kernel /vmlinuz...." line then press "e" again. 3) Type the word "single" to the end of the line (with an empty space before the word single). Press Enter. 4) Press "b" 5) System will boot. When you get the prompt "#", type "passwd" to enter in new password for root. 6) Reboot the system. Done
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
I've run into a weird problem. Two of my linux machines (A and B, both running CentOS 5.5) are connected to the same wall ethernet socket via a hub. Bothf them are configured for static IPs. The trouble is that when machine B goes offline or hits a kernel panic, machine 1 goes offline too. What I've noticed is that in this condition the "route" output from machine A does not show any entry for the default gateway either The contents of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 for machine A are:
I am trying to establish the easiest way to share a folder from an Ubuntu machine to a Windows machine.In the past I have added things to smb.conf and that has all worked fine but what I am trying to do is to figure out what the "new user" way of doing this is so that when I am helping other people I know I am getting them to do the simplest thing.I completely removed samba and reinstalled it so that I didn't have any configuration. Right clicked on a folder and selected "Sharing Options" ticked the "Share this folder box" gave it a name and a comment and ticked the other two boxes.
When I went to the windows laptop then it kept asking for a username/password and nothing worked.Back on the ubuntu machine I did sudo smbpasswd -a [username] and created a blank password. Now from the windows machine I can access the shared folder.Is the smbpasswd step still required? It's very confusing for a new user as there is no suggestion that anything other than right clicking on the folder and choosing the options you want would be required. Is it something to do with the fact that this is an ubuntu machine that has gradually been upgraded through versions and this problem wouldn't have been there from a new install?
I have Linux installed on one machine with samba running and a second machine running XP. They are going through my router and I am using the same username/passwords for both machines and I have even gone to the point of allowing access to everyone for the share I created and the worgroup in samba is MSHOME just like my XP machine. When I view (or search) my workgroup computers my Linux machine shows up and so do the shares I created but when I try to open them I just get a message that permission is denied and I may not have permission to use this resource. I even tried setting access to the shared folder to 777 but still I can't open this share. Has anyone got any idea of why this is?
Just installed Ubuntu the newest release on my laptop . Im dual booting on my laptop. Vista or Ubuntu. I gotta say I love Ubuntu more than vista. I would much rather use ubuntu. My question is I cannot for the life of me connect to my main PC running Windows 7. Reason I want to do this is my PC running windows 7 has all my music which is rather large over 100gigs worth. Looks like it recognizes my PC but I cannot access anything.
Now In windows 7 I have disabled password and made it pretty easy to access files on there. When I boot into vista on my laptop no problem at all getting onto the network to access my main Windows 7 Pc. Any Ideas why Ubuntu can't get into my Windows 7 pc Through my network. Would love to do this that way I don't ever have to boot into vista. Ubuntu is great otherwise.
I had run one script in unix machine and want to copy the results to a windows machineBoth the machines are on different networksIn linux machine trying to do the ftp to the windows machine its giving connection refused.

I am trying to set up samba in my CentOS virtual machine that is running on a Windows 7 host. I have found a tutorial in the How-Tos on this site but I'm not sure if they are exact and I'm paranoid about messing something up. The link to the tutorial is below. Is there anything that I should do different or anything that I should be aware of? Also, once this is set up, how do I transfer files between the two machines? Please note: I am very inexperienced in the IT field. [URL]...
I mean I assigned the IP: 192.168.1.4 to Linux machine (Eth0). I did everything above and can't ping till now, when pinging from windows or Linux I get a message "destination host unreachable" restarted Linux many times but same result. NETWORK CABLE is working fine I tested it.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop right now. I have an external western digital terabyte drive plugged into it. I am able to see it and view it fine. Let's work with my music folder for example. I want to be able to access this music from my Windows 7 laptop so that I may add it to my itunes. However, when I enter the \servershare from the windows 7 laptop it says that the "server" is found but the "share" seems to be invalid. I've checked this 20 times and setting the share name to "music". I've rebooted 2 times on each computer yet to no avail. If I make a share on the Ubuntu desktop I can access it from the laptop. So it seems like it just gets lost when looking inside the external. This was just working last week, then I had to blow away they win 7 lappy and now it just won't work!
he moved in a new place and there is a huge share on the network machine which runs windows... however he has fedora 10 installed on a desktop pc with a big screen and asked me to configure it so it can access the share... i have almost no experience with fedora and i've been trying to do this for two days now... i installed the samba package, but now what? how to do this because the exact commands are unknown to me... i have the root password and everything else on the network... so i just need to know what ot write in order to be able to mount all the TBs of information on the server...
I have Samba shares on a Red Hat server vmware virtual machine. We just upgraded our vmware tools and vmware hardware to vsphere and now I can't authenticate to the samba shares. It prompts for credentials, but it won't take the login. Has anyone seen this or have any idea how to fix this?
Im having trouble setting my SAMBA server correctly. I have two Win machines, one with WIN7 and one with XP. I have one Ubuntu machine and Ubuntu Server 10.04. My problem is that I can only acess files from the Win 7 Machine. When I try to map out the shared dirs on my serverI get asked for user and password, when I enter my creditensials it dosent help.. What to do? I used the sample smb.conf file and open for no restrictions..
I remember it being really easy to add a printer attached to another computer using Ubuntu, but I don't remember exactly what made it so easy. All I know is that now that I have switched to Kubuntu the process has become much harder because now I have to find out some special locations, numbers etc. for it to connect to the printer. It's connected to a Windows XP machine on the other side of the house. It says alot about 'contacting the network administrator' if I am unsure about what to put in. But I am more or less the network administrator. how to find out what numbers to put in so that my Linux machine can connect and print to the Windows machine? Or maybe someone knows a few commands to share? I go to Applications > Settings > System settings, Printer configuration, New Printer, New Network printer, and then there are a few options but I don't know which one to choose. Windows Printer via Samba, I guess? Then in the box that says smb://[enter stuff here] I need to put in info but I don't know how to find that info.
I am trying to setup my opensue 11.3 server as a pdc using openldap and samba I am continuously getting a network path not found error message on my windows xp box. I already verified that the network settings are good.
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2010-07-05 [global]
I have everything networked properly, as far as I can tell, both computers see each other... I can use putty to port in and use my Linux machine (Debian 4). When I go to map network drive on my XP machine, I can see the computer, but not the shared folder. After some googling I found that i have to create my Windows user name ont he Linux machine as a user as well. Unforunately, that user is 'Administrator'. So I told Linux to force user, and it created it, and did smbpasswd command and added the user to the samba list. Still nothing.
I want to make my machine to PXE boot windows from another machine having RHEL5.2. I know the procedure to PXE boot linux, but I want to know is it possible to PXE boot your client machine with windows XP.
Can anyone point me in the direction of setting up shares for windows machines on centos. I have found a few document but never managed to get it up and running correctly. I need to be able to get access to subfolder etc for different users. Is there any way of doing it with some sort of gui?
I have configured a FTP (VSFTPD) Server in RHEL 5.6, which resulted me a default directory /var/ftp/pub. Even i have cerated another Directory /var/ftp/accounts. Where Accounts Directory is owned by user x in my server. I have a issue with this, It prompts me User and Password while accessing this ftp 192.168.5.20 in Linux Servers. But while i am trying this through a windows machine by ftp://192.168.5.20 it gets directly accessed without prompting me any User and Password.
I need to have FTP environment same like windows. where it must prompt me user name and password, and i must be able to upload and download data from my windows clients.
