Ubuntu Networking :: Share NTFS Storage Partitions On HDD Over Network With Windows 7?

Oct 20, 2010

I have a desktop with Ubuntu and I've set up Samba to share files with my Windows 7 laptop. I can access my home folder just fine except for my NTFS storage partitions on the desktop's HDD and my home folder's Downloads folder (which times out whenever I try and open it).

Is there an alternative way to share files between Linux and Windows 7?

Ubuntu Networking :: Create A Writable (preferably Nautilus Setup) Network Share On External NTFS?drive?

Jul 22, 2010

So I have the strange task of trying to make something like I said above work in Lubuntu 10.04. But every time I do, the share is not accessible because none of the important permissions (other) can be set because its, well, NTFS in linux. And I know of no way to fix it.Is there an easy way, preferably with Nautilus since the person I am setting this up for isn't a computer expert, to setup this share so thats its accessible and writable by other computers on the network?

Networking :: Share Windows Partitions On Ubuntu Server From Ubuntu Client?

Jul 11, 2010

Want to share windows partitions (FAT) mounted on an Ubuntu server from an Ubuntu client, over a wireless connection in a small home network. Succeeded mounting linux ahares from client but not the windows shares (I get what sounds like permissions errors). All shares are served by Samba, all have user accounts and passwords. smbclient and smbmount have been used on the client to attempt to mount the shares. Both machines are dual boot, and I'm able to share and print over the network with XP running on both machines.

OS: both machines: Lucid Lynx
Client: Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop
Server: a Medion (german company) cheapo desktop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Share Computer With Windows Network?

May 29, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and would like to share this computer on my windows network. I understand that Samba is the way to go, but how do I configure linux with Samba so I can share files and printers? I am able to see my windows computers (vista and xp) but I am not able to see the linux computer with those machines plus I would like to change the network name of the linux machine if possible. Please any help and information will be much appreciated. Eventually I would like to server a printer from this linux machine to the other windows machines.

Ubuntu :: Hiding Windows (NTFS) Partitions But Still Have Access

Feb 3, 2010

I still have to dual boot with Windows (for now!) but having the various NTFS partitions show up in Nautilaus, etc. is a problem.Also I would like to share some data between Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10 but I cannot create any more partitions due to well know limitations. In my case I already have 3 primary Windows partitions that I want to keep and 1 primary Linux with ext4 and swap as logicals for Ubuntu. BTW my laptop had all 4 primaries used up an I got rid 1 for Ubuntu. I could get rid of more but really do not want to now.

I found many great ideas and suggestions here in the forums but could not find exactly what I was looking for so I cobbled together a couple of I ideas and I think I have a working solution.First to hide a Windows partition and protect it this works great when you add this line to fstab:

Quote:

/dev/sda2 /Windows/sda2 ntfs-3g defaults,umask=777 0 0

Of course change your partition to the correct one and make sure the /Windows directories are created.I have used this many times and it works great except I want to have access to 1 or 2 directories without exposing the whole drive.I turned to symbolic links to help solve but when sda2 is "hidden" with the above there is a rights problem for my normal user. I could probably solve it with umask somehow but I just did this instead:

Quote:

/dev/sda2 /Windows/sda2 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

I found this allows me to access the directory but it is still hidden from Nautilaus. I am guessing it is because it is mounted in a location it does not normally look in.After this I created a symbolic link to the directories I want access like this:

Quote:

ln -s /Windows/sda2/Temp /home/myuser/windir

Note I did not use sudo here because that was causing me rights problems at one time. This is permanent until you rm the windir file since symbolic links are just special files.

So now I can access windir in my home directory on the NTFS partition without me accidentally messing up my other Windows system files. If I try hard I can mess it up but this provides just enough protection for me. I can also drag the link to my desktop or the Naultilaus left nav pane and it acts like a regular directory.I sure there are a 100 ways to achieve what I wanted to do but thought I would share this method since it took me a while to figure it out.

Ubuntu :: Mkfs.ntfs Partitions Are Not Recognized By Windows 7?

May 7, 2010

I formatted with mkfs.nts a USB 500 GB external drive. Under Linux when I connect it to the USB port it's recognized and works. Under windowz 7 home is's seen in the device list but not in the computer window. I can't do anything with it apart eject it. This is what I get from fdisk:sudo fdisk /dev/sdcThe number of cylinders for this disk is set to 60801.There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,and could in certain setups cause problems with:1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)Command (m for help):

and this from fdisk -ls /dev/sdc:
gt[~]$ sudo fdisk -ls /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Network Share Folders

Feb 16, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 since 2-3 weeks. First I tried live CD and the OS seems to be very good. So i installed it on my laptop.So far i had no problems until I tried to access the shared network folders of my Server running on MS Windows Vista and another trial PC running WindowsXP. I'm trying to solve this since 2-3 days, I haven't found a solution.1st of all my network works fine. All computers can ping each other and as the laptop had Windows XP installed the server was accessable.1st I installed the SMB4k tool with this program. I could see the computer names, but as soon as I select a Windows computer the tool searches and nothing happens.

I tried a lot of different variations of this command but in the end I receive this kind of error. I also tried to add -o user=username pass=password, nothing changed.After this I searched information about this error, some forum threads I googled are telling the SMB4K tool modifies the /etc/sudoers file and cause this error. So i tried to change it back with some kind of sudo chmod 0640 etc/sudoers but this won't work it seems I can not modify or edit thisw file using sudo.With the pyNeighbourhood tool I could only see my Laptop but not the Windows PCs.At the end I will install Linux systems on all of my PCs, but only if all my tests will pass .

Fedora Networking :: Network Share Files With Windows ?

Sep 1, 2011

I am trying to both access files shared by Windows machines on my network, and I also want to share files on my Fedora 15 box. In Nautilus, if I choose the 'Browse Network' option on the left toolbar, I am shown a Windows Network icon. If I try to double click this, I am given an "Unable to mount location" error. Does anyone know why this is and how to fix it? Further, where is the GNOME 3 option to right click and choose to share a folder? Both KDE 4.5/4.6 and older versions of GNOME (at least on Ubuntu) had this. Is there a way to share files this way, and if not, is there some workaround?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Write To Samba Share (NTFS)

Aug 10, 2010

I have this samba share for ghosting images to (backing up computers at work) and I can read the ghost images just fine from the share, but I am unable to write to the share. From any windows environment I have tried, I get a disk is full error. I have 200GB+ free space, so this is not the actual issue. I believe there is a write permission somewhere that I am overlooking. My setup basically lets me log in under the username samba from a client machine.

Here is my smb.conf file:

Code:

#======================= Global Settings =======================
[global]
workgroup = discount.local
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

[code]....

I've tried chown on /media/Images to make it owned by samba, but it just reverts once I remount the partition. Either that or my eyes are playing tricks on me.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Share (samba) From NTFS Drive?

Sep 15, 2010

I managed to install samba and it's GUI. I tried to share a directory within the pictures folder (at home/mark/pictures/share) just as a test. I had everything set up right, but it was inaccessible from a windows XP machine on my network. After some digging I found the problem lay with the permissions of it's parent folder. I right clicked on the parent folder then clicked properties, then clicked on the permissions tab. I changed the permissions for others and it's working fine.

I'm having the same problem now but with a share on a NTFS drive called storage. I cannot change the permissions for the shared folder or any of it's parents by right clicking. Any changes I make revert immediately back to their previous setting. Is there any way to change the permissions to allow read access to everyone?

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount External Ntfs Hd As User AND Being Able To Share?

I have an ntfs external hd; I can mount and use it fine, without entry in fstab, but not share stuff. That is to say: I can use nautilus / thunar to share folders on it without errors, but they are not accessible via the network. The issue may be that the mount point has permissions 700. I can solve that by Code:sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank -o umask=0,nls=utf8or by setting umask=022 in fstab, but then I can't mount it as user anymore; if I set fstab to

CentOS 5 Networking :: Get Samba To Share Files From Ntfs Drive?

Jun 12, 2009

The file permissions on the folder are RW for user,group and world.(umask=0000) My main problem is with SELinux, I've tried to audit2allow and that seemed to work, all I had to do then was chcon the directory and files to type samba_share_t but the tool fails with Operation Not Supported. Am I to assume you simply cannot share files from a mounted ntfs drive under SELinux? Because I've just spent 2 hours trying and I've just about ready to just give up and just go back to windows when I need to share those folders. There's no way i can copy the folder contents to my Linux partition, far too big for that. Has anyone EVER been able to do this? Do I have to disable SELinux to do it?

Fedora Networking :: Internet Lag And Windows Network "failed To Retrieve Share List From Server"?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 and when I'm surfing the web, it seems to lag in between pages. I don't think its my net connection, I just wiped windows 7 off my system for Fedora and it did not suffer from the same lag issues.I've tried adding in google's alternate dns server 8.8.8.8 but it didn't seem to fix the issue. I ran into this issue a couple years back on Ubuntu 8.1 or something like that, and I never could find out what I needed to configure.My second problem is that when I try to connect to other Windows systems on my wlan or wired connection, it gives the error "failed to retrieve share list from server". I'm not experienced in networking, can someone explain this to me?
