Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Via Samba To Windows Share
May 6, 2010
I'm able to connect to a networked Windows machine and its shares using the Places -> Network -> Windows network interface, but unable to do so using smbclient at terminal command line. I can see the shares using:
smbclient -L //server -U username
But when issuing the command:
smbclient //server/service -U username
domain=[server] OS=[Windows Server 2003 R2 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
The share name has spaces, like
lab raid root share
I use 40 to fill in the spaces. This problem must be something fairly simple if I can connect via the Places GUI but not through the command line.
I have an Ubuntu server with some shares and a Windows XP client in an active directory, i've created all the right accounts but can't seem to connect my linux box from the XP machine wouldn't the user name box popping up with ACTIVEDIRETORYNAMEusername like that? hope that makes sense, the account to access the share is locally created on the linux box?
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 am trying to create a Samba share on Ubuntu so that I can see it on my Windows computer but have had nothing but trouble. I've tried everything that I could find in Google but the best I can get is that my Ubuntu computer shows up as Unknown device on my Windows computer. Unfortunately, my Windows computer belongs to my company or I would just switch to Ubuntu altogether. I have posted a couple of screenshots of what I see in Windows, my GParted partitions, and the options that I have enabled for the folder I am trying to share. Below are my fstab and my samba files from Ubuntu. I am sure that this is just some rookie mistake as I am new to Ubuntu. It certainly seems that this should be easy, but I just can't get it.
I'm trying to make my music directory, located on my Ubuntu box, available to all the windows clients (Windows 7, to be specific) located around the apartment. It seems to work fine, I can see and read from the shares from my windows box, but deleting files doesn't work, I just get a permission denied.I've tried being as lenient as I can in the smb.conf, as well as setting 777 on the affected files, nothing changes. I've read, from my various googling, that the octal file permissions aren't as important as the samba permissions. Okay fine, but how do I tell samba to ignore permissions and let everyone delete files? I've read that samba works with samba users, but again, I don't care about users, I just want a global share that anyone can connect to and read (and delete) files.
Here's my smb.conf file: http:[url]...As you can see, I've played around a bit with options, but I just can't seem to get anything to work.
I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.
Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:
[Windows 2000 and higher] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :
%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
ubuntu 9.04 and win xppro i've been pounding my head aganst this for hours now. reading anything i can find samba works mostly shares created from nautilus work fine from both ubuntu and windows if i check to allow guest access if not i can not log in it does work in the nautilus browser fine. shouldn't make a difference but am using a virtualbox win xp guest shares work without issue. printers work here is a dump of my service defenitions
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu) map to guest = Bad User
I have a linux box that I'm using to mount a windows 7 share with samba or cifs. The mounting itself goes fine, but directories with more subdirs or files do not seem to have all the content they actually have.
For example, viewing my music folder shows only first 37 subdirs. The ls says "total 49", which is the correct amount, but the listing itself shows only 37 first in alphapetical order.
On the other hand, my wallpaper folder contains 122 files. Ls claims there is 41872 and displays only 70.
Adding the mount option noserverino increases the listed files or dirs, but it still does not show them all.
I've tried to enable debug printk level, but dmesg doesn't show anything interesting.
I've tried to change values in /proc/fs/cifs, but it does not seem to have any effect.
I've tried changing samba package. So far I've tested with 3.5.7, 3.5.2, 3.5.4 and now 3.5.8.
My distribution was yesterday slackware 13.1. Today I upgraded to 13.37 (with samba 3.5.8) but the problem persists.
I've tried with kernel versions 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
I have set up a Samba share via my CentOS 5 server (the samba share is actually a mounted filesystem, not local machine space). I have been successful in adding permissions for my windows users within the smb.conf, but have an additional need that I cannot figure out. I would like for my Windows administrators to be able to create folders and assign permissions from their machines (and their Windows GUI). Ultimately I need the folders on the Samba share to behave correctly when Windows group permissions are applied by these administrators.
When the folders are created, the "Everyone" identity cannot be deleted and sometimes "Creator Owner" or "Creater Group" show up. I have seen several threads start down this path, but haven't seen a definite answer (I may have just missed it!).
I'm running Lucid and and trying to get Samba set up to allow sharing files on my network. My problem is that my Windows laptop (Win7) can't see the Linux PC when I click on Network. It only shows my own laptop and my roommate's Vista laptop. However, if I manually connect to the computer (\serenity) it works just fine.
Right now I'm simply using the smb.conf that comes with the package and adding my share info.
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
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?
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.
My network comprises three PC's .... Windows XP, Windows 98SE and Ubuntu 9.04 running SAMBA. All PC's are configured WORKGROUP=WORKGROUP. The network connection To/From XP/UBUNTU via SAMBA Shares works perfectly OK. However, despite scouring all forum information regarding changes to Win98 ENCRYPTION, (Registry change re: DWORD "EnablePlainTextPasswords"), the Win98 PC refuses to connect to UBUNTU. The UBUNTU PC can conect to all the Win98 shared folders OK. I have disabled my Linux Firewall (Firestarter), I have run SMBCLIENT to check the user password for Win98 and it is validated OK. The Win98 error message is ....
"\Inspiron 510m is not accessible. The computer or sharename could not be found. Make Sure you typed it correctly and try again."
My samba.conf file is as follows ..... Any help or assistance PLEASE !

I am not able to configure nfs mounted disk for shareing samba. i have a server X. which configure samba for windows XP client this is done. now i have export X server samba share disk to mount Y server using nfs. this is mount and ok. but i don't share this disk using Y server samba configure.
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.
I am trying to allow my mother's Acer Aspire One (OS: Linpus Linnux Lite) to print on the WIFI Canon Pixma MP620 printer. The rest of the computers connected in the house run some variant of Windows. The printer has been set up to print wirelessly from the Windows computer. Having searched the internet for hours, I have determined that there aren't any drivers for that particular printer.
My potential solutions are: 1. Buy a new printer 2. Install Windows on the Aspire One (Last resort!) 3. Use this piece of software (http://www.printeranywhere.com/), which is installed on my Windows 7 computer which is on 90% of the time, and find some way to install it on Linux. (I tried Wine, and it opened up the installation .exe but when it came to actually installing, returned an error saying it needed to be installed on the same drive. :S) 4. Follow this tutorial (http://justin.yackoski.name/winp/) to print via my computer.
I think I will manage to follow the tutorial fine (as a complete Linux novice!), but I am having some problem with simply connecting to my Windows share folder, which I came across on this line of the tutorial: Test that you can access the share from the linux PC via smbclient. I.e., run: smbclient //windows_pc/spool -U print and make sure you can put a file into that shared directory. After I enter the password, as prompted, is returns:
session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
When I try: "smbclient -L //WILL-PC -U Will", and then enter my password as prompted, it returns the same error. However if I try: "smbclient -L //WILL-PC -N", it returns: Anonymous login successful. Then my correct Domain, OS and server details. Then the titles: Sharename, Type and Comment
And then the following: cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe srvsvc to machine WILL-PC. Error was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED Anonymous login successful Then the same correct Domain, OS and server details Then two headings: Server and Comment, each of which have a different entry below them to do with my printer. Then the two headings: Workgroup and Master, below which there are two different workgroups that we have, and my computer and my sisters laptop.
Start>Run>\192.168.0.1storage gives me "The specified network password is not correct." It lists my domain as "ANTEC" which is the name of my computer, though I've changed the workgroup to WELLS. I've run:
I had a connection to my other Windows computer the other day automatically in the Places-->Network-->Windows Network folder but it now seems to have disappeared. I tried going to Place connect to server and typing in the WIndows computer name but it won;t connect and errors out. I also tried the IP: Cannot display location "smb://%5C%5C192.168.1.36/"
running a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop in the living room with a LOT of files. I've tried all week to get this working, and can't tell where the problem is. I want to make a music share that will: Allow guests, but as read-only Allow me to mount in Windows 7 with the user 'thecheeks' Give user thecheeks read/write access to that share
I swear Samba ends up working but maybe the problem is with Windows 7. I looked at the SAMBAWiki Win 7 page and made sure my registry values were what they should have been (and they were).
In the Windows network, there are 2 or more shares as follows:
I can access both shares in nautilus e.g. "smb://bla.bla.company.com/share $". The shares are mounted then in "home/user/.gvfs/". ok.
In one of shares, is a file-based repo, which I can access easily with svn.
Unfortunately when I try to checkout any normal folder from a share (as in MS$ with Tortoise), I fail...
What's more in the file-based repo, external references exist to other shares in the network, the name is as "file:///X:/folder/file.txt". SVN gives error messages about such references and does not access files (where "X:/" is also mounted, but as a "test$ to smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" in "home/user/.gvfs/ ").
My questions: - what is the best solution to mount shares, so I can access all the SVN repos? - How can I access normal files and folders from a share with svn? - How can the problem with external file references in a file-based SVN repo can be solved? without to checkout/commit files "manually"... - Some checkouted scripts (Perl, etc.) use libs from shares: "Use lib qw(r:/tools/perl/lib/). how to get around this as well? - How can I change mount-names: "test$ on smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" to something like "share-test$? - How can I change the mount location? in "home/user/SAMBA/" instead of "/home/user/.gvfs/"..
I had tried to use "fuse-smb": installed, created config, but when I run "fusesmb /home/user/SHARES/", i get an error message: smb.conf is missing.. Where can I get this config?
And one last question: Can someone recommend me a svn-gui? i have tried tried rabbitcvs, esvn and some others .. but all either do not work or crash.
I'm not sure, but maybe I can use svn and tortoise in wine, and checkout/commit the necessary files from/to "home/user/project/"? there raises the questions whether it is possible to install tortoise in wine and how to mount the shares on the wine? How to manage the hard-coded lib-names in some scripts...
i hav configured samba share in RHEL 5.4 , it can be accessable from other linux machine but i want to access it from windows machine, how can i do it? i also want want to know that in RHEL my partitions are in ext3 format, so how can windows can detect this partition, Is samba share is independent of filesystem on either machines
case2:--- i hav configured samba on windows server 2008 , how can i mount it on linux machine
I am setting up samba on my CentOS server for the first time. I am using webmin to configure samba. Here is the smb.conf
[global] netbios name = KISKA cups options = raw load printers = yes server string =
I can see the domain name "KISKA" in the "network" tab of windows explorer, however when I click on it I get this error: Windows cannot access \KISKA check the spelling of the name. otherwise there might be a problem with your network. Under the details of this error I get this: "The network path was not found" Also I have stopped iptables so it cant be firewalled
want to made 2 users in samba by which windows machine we access share, say user1 has read,execute permission, user2 has read write delete update full permission. we have done user1 configuration as premia user. we need your guideline for user2
we change the smb.conf file # less /etc/samba/smb.conf [global]
I wanted to setup a Samba share on a box running Ubuntu 10.4 and share it to Windows 7 computers throughout my house. When I browse the Network (thru Windows), I can see "Media Devices" that correspond with the locations of where I will put the media. The problem is that I have been unable to copy the media to the Ubuntu server because I cannot see the Ubuntu "computer" from Windows 'Network'.
All computers are on the same Workgroup
Running the following command line from Windows returns no errors and lists the samba share:
Using the testparm command on my smb.conf returns only one error (which previous googling seems to indicate is not an issue). The following is what was returned by the command:
