Ubuntu Networking :: All Users To Access All These Shares With A Single Login/password?
Feb 22, 2010
My question is probably very common, but I didn't find an answer.I have several computers, each with different user. Each user has a shared folder in samba. I want all users to access all these shares with a single login/password (not with the login/passw of each particular user)
Everything was working well between my Windows 7 shares and all three of my Ubuntu machines. I just replaced my buggy belkin router with a Netgear one and now none of the Ubuntu machines can open my windows box through Nautilus. All three (one 10.04, 2 10.10) can see the Windows box but when I click on it I get the never ending password prompts. My Mac can access the Windows 7 machine fine, and all three Ubuntu boxes can access the shares with CIFS/autofs. I just can't browse the available shares using Places->Network. I'm lead to believe something on Win 7 reset when I changed the router but after two days I'm at a loss as to what it could be.
Im trying to config my intranet to be accessible from inside the network (lan) without need of password and ask for a passwd for those who are viewing from Wan ....
Today my intranet can only be accessed from Lan, external access give me an Unauthorized message, I took look around, try #irc and still can get the appropriated help, I hope that someone here could help me on that...
I've set up password-less login for user1 on a Ubuntu machine to login automatically into a Fedora box using the publickey authentication method. Everything is working smoothly. Now, there is a user2 on Fedora but he does not have an account on Ubuntu.
I tried to login as user2 from Ubuntu to but got the following error :
Predictably neither scp or sftp work either. I have several questions as a result.
1.Is the SSH server rejecting user2 login because I am inadvertently using user1 keys (as I am logged in as user1) ?
2. Do I need to have a user2 account on Ubuntu and public/private key authentication setup with Fedora for user2 to be able to login ?
3. Is there a method I can use to password login as user2 from Ubuntu to Fedora (even though there is no user2 account on Ubuntu) AND still keep password-less login for user1 or do I have to have password-less login for both ?
At present the only way to access the user2 account from Ubuntu is to SSH using the user1 account and then su to user2.
I recently switched from centos to fedora as my server choice. Probably not the best decision but I like trying new things. Now before I switched I had my samba server setup just they way I wanted it. Now I'm having a hard time getting it back to that way. Here is my smb.conf
Code: [global] workgroup = workgroup netbios name = netbios name server string = Linux Server security = user wins support = yes encrypt passwords = Yes domain logons = yes [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = yes writable = yes valid users = %S
[me] path = /home/me read only = no public = yes create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 browseable = yes writable = yes
Now I did throw away my old smb.conf because it wasn't that complicated and I figured I could reproduce it.. aside from that everything is working except for the fact that I can access any share I want to listed without it requesting a password. I have a username and password setup with smbpasswd and I think everything else is setup correctly involving samba shares but I have no idea why it won't request a password.
I've been running a Samba server under RedHat 8 for five years without a hiccup. I want to cut over to a F10 box but cannot get shares accessible. smbclient attempts fail over NT password error. SELinux is disabled. Server is visible on the network. Users require no password access to shared data.

The company I work for, as usual, is Microsoft-centric. I'm attempting to integrate my Ubuntu server into the domain to allow domain users to authenticate to the server and access file shares using Samba. Here's my current configuration:
We have an existing Windows 2000 network that I am trying to add an Ubuntu 8.04 server to. I have put links into the windows domain DFS to the linux machine's samba shares.
The shares work fine for local users that are physically on the same network (192.168.0.X). Remote users from other offices or dialing in with a vpn client can not access the these particular folders off the DFS. However, they can map them directly from the ubuntu server.
The login screen does not accept the password for users. Only the password for Root. The problem is not in the command line, but check the password in the screen. I have tried to change the password from the root and it is still the problem. What I can do?
I created some users on my Ubuntu 10.0.4 machine a long time ago (whilst experimenting). Some of these users can login to the system, and others were prevented from login in. I can't remeber which ones can login. I have the following questions:
How do I find out which users may login to the machine? How may I disable an existing user account from login in? How may I re-enable a previously (login) disabled user account so it an login again?
I am working as a Linux administrator in a very small data centre with 5 servers with following routine tasks.
1. Managing SAMBA shares and giving user specific access for the shares. 2. Scheduling backup of some mount points with rsycn to store data in remote hard disk 3. User and group administration, with sudo access. 4. Creating and Managing Xen Virtual machines and giving access to other project teams. 5. Automating some tasks with Shell Scripting. 6. Managing FTP server for user uploads.
I have practiced a lot in my home laptop without RHEL training, Cleared RHCE and LPIC1. I want to do some advanced system admin tasks, but do not have option in my current data centre. With Above skills is it possible to get a job ?
I don't know if this is Just my Machine, or not. But here is it:
Ubuntu 10.01 Acer Aspire 7740
When the computer is locked. I can smiply go to switch users. when the list of users logins are shown all i have to do is click on my user name and it allows me into my account without typing in a password. I can lock the computer manually or wait for it to time out it doesn't matter. the switch users method allows me to bypass the password protection.
I'm trying to do the normal setup of sharing some dir's on my linux machine using samba, to allow a windows laptop to access them.
I've managed to get the printer shared and this is allowing to send print jobs, which come out beautifully! however the actual file shares still aren't accessible
Depending on my settings, if I have security = user then when I access from the windows machine I get a username and password box - I dont want this functionality, I want the system to access right away as it would between two windows shares.
If i change security = share then it simply lists the shares, but tells me they are all inaccessible.
I've googled and searched here, tried various different things but I just can't see why/where its asking me for the username/password combo.
My university has a central leased line that is split into wired and wireless. While plugged into the wired network i can access all the windows shares. However when on the wireless network, i cant access the wired shares. Windows laptops can however access them, but directly entering the share name ( \share-name)
I am trying to access a shared printer connected to my Win7 PC from a laptop running Lucid Lynx. I have Samba installed and configured okay (I think) and I can browse the Ubuntu laptop from Windows but when I try to access shares on the Win7 machine I get a message NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL.
I've reviewed the security settings on the Win7 machine and tried turning off the firewall. I can see the Win7 computer on my network and ping it from the Ubuntu laptop but I cannot access shared folders or the printer.
At, or around, the time of upgrading from Lucid to Maverick, shares on some of my nfs servers have become inaccessible:
Code: peter@Desktop:~$ ls /net/10.2.1.21/ opt peter@Desktop:~$ ls /net/10.2.1.21/opt/ sybhttpd
The share is hosted on a PopcornHour Network Media Tank, running a Linux system. With Lucid, I was able to access the share without any problems, both in Nautilus and from terminal. I can still access the share from other nfs clients - it's just ubuntu/Maverick which exhibits this problem. I have tried reverting to older firmware on the PopcornHour but that doesn't make any improvement.
Was there some significant change in nfs with the Maverick release, or have I misconfigured something?
Running Ubuntu 10.10 M-M..Running Network, my machine sees my Windows Workgroup, and even the machines on the workgroup. When I try to access those machines, I get a message "Failed to retrieve share list from server." I've been able to mount other machines by using straight IP accesss, but that is of little use since IP addresses are not Static.
find that i cant access from my ubuntu box (desktop), now running 11.04 (i was able to access yesterday, when i tested the config). I CAN access from my XP and Win7 virtualboxes.and also from another win7 on the house.. So server is working good aparently.This is all i modified from the default config file:
Code: ####### Authentication ####### # "security = user" is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
I am trying to set up a network where users can login to a central server which gives access to a partition depending on their role in the company e.g development or HR.my ideal world would be a computer sits on the desk. someone comes along logins they have all their files. they can then login with the same user information else where in the office.
when I try to access the shares from a Win98 laptop. The server name shows up in the Network Neighborhood (freaking childish names!) but when I double-click it, Win98 keeps asking me for the password for the \SHOPIPC$ connection. I have deleted the .pwl file on the Win98 and logged in using the same user/pass combination as I do on the Linux. On the Linux, I ran 'smbpasswd -a derek' and supplied my password.Windows XP sees the server just fine, but Windows 98 just does not want to play nice. Is there any thing that I can do to fix this without breaking the connection to the XP box or the Linux laptop?
I am trying to access my win7 networks shares with pcmanfm. (I have done sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends). I dont have any pw on my win7 and i dont want one. So every time i try to connect, pcman ask me for pw. How to configure pcman to dont ask me for pw? I have tried linux mint live usb and ubuntu live usb with same result.
This is a bit of a shameless cross-forum bump, as I'm really trying to crack samba in the hope of getting some server action going, and this is the closest I've been to actually understanding what I'm playing with. "Well, I've lasted a lot longer than usual before resorting to asking around, but I've finally gone delightfully mad. I've been trying to access shares based on Windows 7 Ultimate with limited user access on said shares. I've managed to get into my XP machine, another mate's Vista machine and various Linux boxes with no issues, but that's only for shares that are accessible by everyone. The moment I try to get into a share that requires user credentials, I get "Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"
If I try to access restricted shares (be it machine or folder) through Nautilus, I will get a user logon prompt, but it fails. Using smbclient results in just as little success, and now I'm munching through O'Reiley's Samba manual from '99, after realising that I need to basically learn Samba in its entirety to have a hope in hell at getting this to work. The trouble is though, every HOWTO and relevant forum post I get my hands on all seem to concentrate more on the server side of things, and usually servering from a linux box, not the other way around as I'm trying to.
The above Windows 7 machine won't even allow me to view its share contents, whereas the XP machine will allow me to browse, but won't allow me to access folders with restricted access. I'm pretty sure there aren't any major issues with the way the Windows 7 machine is setup, as it can be accessed with logon from my Xbox, Ubuntu machine, XP and Vista, with only Fedora having problems getting in as it constantly fails logon. What I'm trying to establish is, if Ubuntu can get in, is there something in my Fedora samba config I'm missing that's preventing me access? My thanks in advance to those of you who've been able to put up with me rambling"As you'll see in my original fedoraforum post, the workgroup misreport issue mysteriously fixed itself after a few updates, although I'm inclined to blame my mate's Win 7 box...call it force of habit, I've just generally come to mistrust an OS that tries so diligently to shift focus away from its shell.
Ok this is a really weird issue because of the way it played it out. I have been researching it off and on for weeks now trying to figure it out and have come up with nothing. Basically when I first installed Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) I was able to access the shared files on my Windows 7 (64 bit) computer perfectly once I changed the domain name in Samba. However I wasn't able to access my Ubuntu shares from Windows 7. After researching for a while to figure that out, I found this:[URL]... Boom! Instantly I could access my Ubuntu shares without a problem from Windows 7.
However after I did this something happened where I could no longer access Windows 7 files from Ubuntu. Unfortunately I am not sure if the change happened immediately or some time later. When I go Places > Network I see the name of my Ubuntu computer (Living-Room) and my Windows computer (Nick-PC) as well as a folder called "Windows Network." When I open Nick-PC it brings up a dialog box saying a password is required. There are three text entry fields and a couple option:
Username: Nick Domain: NRAU Password: [not filled in] _ Forget password immediately _ Remember password until you logout _ Remember password forever
The password field has to be filled in and I have tried every option. Each time it thinks for a second and then just pops the same dialog box again.
i've configured my laptop so i can use my domain account (active directory win 2003 DC) to logon to my machine. Now i'd like to browse and mount shares etc using my logon information. Now when i connect to a share with nautilus it tells me 'guest' can't log in and i need to re-enter my user info. This is a real pain since our passwords change often. Is there some way i can use PAM to authenticate? I've searched everywhere, but you only find info about the other way round (win->linux).
I marked this solved when I discovered, after much reconfiguring, I had a faulty Netgear router - I just thought I'd save you reading all this to find the answer.I have 3 machines at home all running Lucid. All have Samba and shared folders but I can't access files on any machine from any other. This worked ok when they were running Karmic. I'm also unable to set up printing across the network from the two machines without local printers. The main machine has 2 printers connected via USB, the others are using WiFi. I'm not using firewalls on any machine.
Filesharing On any machine I go to Places, Network and Nautilus opens at network:/// and shows me 'Windows Network' I open that and see the Workgroup folder which I open and see the folder is empty. (I did see the 3 machines before I completely removed Samba and re-installed a few minutes ago)
Printing On one of the remote machines I go to Add Printer, Select Device, Network Printer, Windows Printer via Samba, Browse but I can't see the machine with the printers attached in the Workgroup. Another clue is that when I look at the printer properties, policies on the main machine all 3 boxes are ticked, Enabled, Accepting jobs (but it says Not published) and Shared.
I am traveling to the UK next week, and whilst I am there, I need to be able to access my SAMBA shares hosted on my HOMESERVER, via my laptop in england.
I have tried Hamachi before, which works fine on windows, but the linux version is awful, and hardly works. So I need an alternative. I did a bit of googling, but I don't know what "bridged" means when I found a OpenVPN tutorial
I was wondering if anyone could give me some information as to what I'll need, and what I'll need to do on both my homeserver and my laptop?
I have a home network and I use Samba to share files. Now when I am on the network, I can see the shares just fine, but if I use a crossover cable, I cannot see or access the folders or files.My goal is to use a crossover cable from one computer with clonezilla to my server in order to use Samba to make an image of my workstation and save the image on my server.But everytime I try to connect with clonezilla I get a persmissions error and the share will not mount. I tried going to the shell and mounting as root, but that did not work either.
I have another server which is only a console and it works though I am unsure why. The share though is a mounted usb drive while on the one that does not work, it is on the internal hard drive.I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or anything I could try to narrow down the problem. Oh, I can access the share using ssh, but not samba. One other thing, the shares are set to allow read/write access to everyone so I don't see why I can not access it.
