I live in an apartment that is shared with others. We all connect to the internet through the same router. I have files I would like to share with others but have been unable to figure out how to make folders public, or how to view public folders of others and get their files.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Share Files?

May 17, 2010

I cannot, in any way, share files between my Windows 7 and Ubuntu PCs. I have tried everything out there and nothing seems to work. I don't get why! I have samba installed, I have installed the apache2.2 packages and I have checked the network file sharing.

I can create shares with folders and I can see all the windows computers on the network (but can't access any of them).

I cannot view my Ubuntu computer from the Windows computer either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files On Windows Workgroup - Error 255

Feb 5, 2011

I've just recently got my samba confg working with a workgroup. I can view/access/modify windows machines on workgroup just fine. What I can't do is access shares created on ubuntu desktop. My ubuntu machine appears on Windows Workgroup, but denies to Windows users. When I try to create a share using Folder Sharing, I get this returned to me:
'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.

Networking :: Unable To Share Files In SUSE 11.3 + Samba

Dec 10, 2010

My server info:
SUSE 11.3 , authenticated against LDAP, I am able to log in using LDAP credentials.
I did run smbpasswd -w password

After I configured the smb.conf file, I try to do this on the Terminal to make sure it will work in Windows machines but I got this error:

user@mybox:~> smbclient -L mybox.mydomain.com
Enter user's password: (I enter the user password here)
Connection to mybox.mydomain.com failed (Error NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED)

so I went to /var/log/samba.log to check the error file, I got this :

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Is Working But Unable To Share Internet And Files

May 4, 2010

I wouldn't be posting this if I hadn't tried very hard for the past week to do this on my own, but alas, I failed. I have this two configurations:

Desktop:
- Ubuntu 9.10
- Connected to the internet though a wireless card
- Connected to "Laptop" via wired network with a crossover cable

Laptop:
- Dell latitude
- Ubuntu 9.10
- Connected to "Dektop" via wired network with a crossover cable

The wired connection is working, both computers are able to ping each other, but I haven't managed to share internet, nor files. I have tried many different ways, from setting the wired network to "Shared to other computers" to this guide in the Ubuntu Wiki. The best I could get was for the connection to work by setting the IPs manually, whatever else I try results in either nothing or in a not-working connection.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Share Files Through The Two Os?

Feb 27, 2011

right now i have ubuntu installed inside of my windows 7, i gave it a 30 gb allowance. i like ubuntu so much i want to make it my main os, and have windows 7 as my secondary. what my plan was, was to install a fresh version of windows 7, install ubuntu again inside windows 7, and try and use easyBCD to make ubuntu my main os. but now im wondering, ext4 is faster right? so i should actually make a partition, and install the two OS separably, right? or doesnt ext4 make a difference? also will i be able to share files thru the two os? or will i have to add my pictures ect to both os to view them?

Ubuntu Networking :: Nfs Locking Files - Cannot Open For Editing, Or Open Firefox / Thunderbird?

Dec 12, 2010

Server - Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts
Client - Kubuntu 10.10

When I try to open any nfs-mounted file using OpenOffice, I get a pop-up window titled "Document in Use". The text of the message is:

"Document file 'abcde.odt' is locked for editing by:

Unknown User

Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing." I then have three options - <Open Read-Only>, <Open Copy>, & <Cancel> If I cp any of these files from the mounted directory to my home dir (not mounted), I can open them without problem.Also, my firefox & thunderbird date are in this mounted directory as well (sym links to ~dan/.mozilla & ~dan/.thunderbird). Both of these apps hang when trying to open, leaving two processes behind that need to be manually killed. Again, cp'ing the data out of the nfs-mounted dir onto a local dir resolves the issue, so I am 100% confident there is nothing missing or corrupted in the firefox &/or thunderbird data...

relevant entry in /etc/fstab:
server:/nfs/dan/Documents /home/dan/Documents nfs defaults 0 0
relevant entry in server's /etc/exports:
/nfs/dan/Documents client(rw)

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Share : Get An Error Message "unable To Mount Location, Failed To Mount Windows Share"?

Jan 22, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Access The Samba Workgroup

Jan 5, 2011

I have one PC (morpheus) on which I've chosen to share a couple of folders in the home directory. The folders show the "Shared" icon in them and are chmod 777'd. I can access them by going to Dolphin -> Network -> Samba Shares -> Workgroup -> Morpheus -> Foldername ... but *only* on that same computer (Morheus). All my computers are running Kubuntu with KDE 4.5 and attached by ethernet.

If I try and go to Dolphin -> Network -> Samba Shares on *any* other computer, Dolphin just reports "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be cause by an enabled firewall." I've never set up a firewall on any of these computers. Do I need to open ports on my router just for this? Morpheus is set to DMZ mode on the router so it should accept *any* port request not assigned to another computer already.

I have a feeling that there's just something obvious I don't know, because in all my years of trying to get this to work on and off, I've never managed to find a decent *simple* CLI or GUI based tutorial or figure it out myself. The web just seems full of long threads of people having very specific problems unique to their situation trying to sort them out. I just want to share folders over a lan via KDE.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing A Workgroup Printer

Feb 19, 2010

I have an existing windows workgroup set up. (for those interested, at the moment we must keep two computers on windows for school reasons...but will change as quickly as the semester is over and run windows in virtual) anyway, the workgroup has an HP F300 printer. our Ubuntu computers can see the network, and access shared files and external hard drives. but, it does not see the printer. we are running 9.04 on one computer, and 9.10 on the other. i know from [url]that if i connect directly, the printer will work. how do i access the printer without connecting directly?

How can i get all these to talk to each other when I get rid of the Windows set up? can someone point me to a guide for resetting things on a Ubuntu network/workgroup?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connect To Windows Workgroup

Apr 6, 2011

I need to reinstall the samba directory, mainly to get the default smb.conf. It appears I have to remove smbclient, which takes ubuntu-desktop with it (which I now know is mostly ok). Hopefully reinstalling those will then replace /etc/samba. There's enough troubleshooting samba threads out there for the rest. I'll flag this solved when I'm done.

I am working on setting up BackupPC on Maverick , for my network. I am unable to view my WinXP machine's shares if I type "sudo smbclient -L //JonDoe/" . However it works if I use the XP machine's IP "sudo smbclient -L //192.168.1.100/". Viewing the workgroup (with the proper name) in Nautilus only shows the Ubuntu machine. I ended up using multiple how-tos which had me install the following packages : Samba, smbfs, system-config-samba.

With all that nothing worked so I decided to uninstall the above with "remove completely" in synaptic, expecting everything to be completely gone. But /etc/samba with smb.conf still existed so I deleted it. OOPS!!! . Installing Samba after the uninstall did not create a new /etc/samba/ directory. Reinstalling smbclient in synaptic didn't create it either. Uninstalling smbclient with pull BackupPC with it. Sweet! I do have a firewall package installed which allows outgoing but blocks inbound traffic from outside my LAN. I will disable it when I get home.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 Unable To Share Folder?

I am unable to share a folder on my Ubuntu 9.10 desktop machine. Networking is working, I can see and be seen by windows machines and also my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop. The laptop is able to share folders with no problem. The error message I get when I try to set sharing on a folder is "'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Memory allocation error."

I know there has been a thread relating to this in the past, but the solution there did not work for me, and I have been beating my head against the wall for a couple of weeks on this problem, and have spent a bit of time with smb.conf. I would hate to have to do a new install to fix this, after all this is not MS windows!Can anyone point me in the right direction?

How can I remove the LAN network in place, and start over, creating a LAN that will only be used by Ubuntu machines?

Fedora Networking :: No Hostname On Windows Workgroup?

Mar 8, 2009

So everything seams to be fine on my F10 boxes networking. I can ping computers on the network with both LAN IP addresses, and their hostnames. However, I can only access my F10 box with a LAN IP. In windows, I go to view workgroup computers... only the windows systems. If I go to the F10 system with samba via the IP address it works fine, just can't get to it with a hostname.

I'm wanting a static IP of 192.168.1.22. And on the windows workgroup "workgroup".

I'm new to doing things with linux that are remotely difficult... and well, this has proven to be. I can't work out if this is a SMB problem, general networking...

smb.conf (I've ommited the top info segment due to forum character limit, as well as the SELINUX notes)
