Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up Samba File Server For Windows?


I can't seem to connect to it when using windows 7. Both are in the same workgroup (W0RKGR0UP) and I have set DHCP address for the ubuntu box. Is there any other thing that I would still need to edit ? My router address is 192.168.0.1 and the fixed ip for ubuntu box is 192.168.0.103.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Windows File Server W/ Samba On Fedora 11?
I'm trying to load a HP Proliant w/ Fedora 11 and setting up as a WFS using Samba. However, I'm a bit confused on how to do it. Right now I have 2 36.4GB drives in RAID 1+0 and 4 146.8GB drives in a RAID 5 config. I wanna use the smaller drive for the OS and the bigger drive for the storage. I've managed to load the OS fine, the problem is I can't figure out how to mount the 4 146.8GB drives as a single logical volume and set Samba to use it. Right now all the RAIDs are setup using the built-in Compaq Smart Array utility (or whatever it's called) that's built into the SCSI hardware or BIOS.

Fedora Servers :: Setting Up A Samba File Server With DynDNS?
I have recently developed the need for having a file server and am interested in setting up my desktop as a Samba File Server. The problem is that I need to be able to access it from outside networks (physically I'm about 10 miles away from my home network),o I need to also set up some sort of DynDNS service so that I can access the server from anywhere.With this, with setting up a DynDNS, setting up Samba, and setting up my machine to be secure enough for these types of actions. (I just want to make sure it is secure enough since it will need to be detectable from the internet.)

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba To Replace Windows File Server In Active Directory?
We have a couple of Windows file servers that just share files. It is all they do. We'd like to use Ubuntu on two replacement servers allowing Windows XP and Windows 7 clients to access the files. Our network is active directory based due to Exchange and homegrown .NET apps, so it is important that active directory is used to authenticate the clients. Samba doesn't need to be a pdc or bdc, but provide pass through authentication.I understand that Samba can communicate with active directory through security-ads and security-domain.

Here are my questions to see if I should proceed:1) Folder permissions:If we move all our files to the Ubuntu server how do we set folder permissions and will we see the active directory accounts when we do this?2) Skipping ubuntu accounts: I know the domain and ads allow you to skip creating ubuntu accounts, right? If not, how do you keep the passwords synchronized?3) Easiest way? Is there a very easy way to pull this off that I've missed? My goal is to eliminate the Windows based file servers while ensuring the admin part of it is as easy as possible.To date I've been able to get the sharing to work with an ubuntu account mirroring the active directory account. I've been able to get Samba to talk to the pdc, but not successfully through domain security. ADS security was a complete cluster with winbindd

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Samba File Server?
I'm trying to set up an old computer that was donated to my by an aunt to hold my external hard drives and use it as a file server so i can use them from anywhere within my house. However I can not seem to get the samba server to broadcast/be seen by my ubuntu installation, nor my windows installation.

I've read the manual, to an extent, but I feel as if I am missing something. All I want is to have it to where I can just type in \server and bring up my files to access without having to worry about passwords.

Here is the config file:

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = GrenadingBadger
security = share

[Code]....

OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Up 11.3 To Access Printers On Windows Server 2003 Via Samba?
I'm trying to set my openSUSE desktop up to use the printers on my office network via Samba. I managed to get it working in 11.2 but 11.3 is giving me some trouble.I am able to access the printers and use them but I have to enter my network credentials each time I print. In 11.2 I was able to "save" my username/password and was not required to do this. Are there any Samba packages I need to add in addition to the basic ones? There seems to be a lack of documentation on this particular subject, most is concerning Windows clients printing on Linux print servers.

Ubuntu Servers :: Create Samba File Share To Windows Domain Clients?
I feel ashamed for even asking this, since it seems like there's about 3 samba questions here every day. However after an hour of searching, I keep finding strange variants that aren't what I need.

My Goal: Create a single file share on an Ubuntu Server - share it via samba to Windows clients that are on a domain with active directory. It sure would be nice if AD authentication would work - so users don't have to type in a linux user/passsword each time they want to access the share.

In my adventures, I've found the following items (which may overlap)

1. Joining the server to a Windows Domain

2. Turning the server into a Windows Domain Controller

3. Authentication with LDAP (still not quite sure how/what this would do)

4. Stuff with Kerberos

5. Lots of people bickering about Samba 3/4 & how it's impossible to make Samba a PDC.

I'm not sure if I need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller or not...all I want to do is create a file share and share it on the domain...I don't need to make the ubuntu server a domain controller for that, right? Maybe just a member? Maybe nothing at all?

I guess if I want to authenticate stuff correctly (or forward authentication requests? Not sure), I probably need to join the ubuntu server to the domain...I think.

But let's say I do join it to the domain...then how to I create a file share that is authenticated via active directory rather than a local ubuntu server account? I see a dozen guides on joining the server to the domain, but nobody ever mentions sharing the folder over the domain.

The lines are also blurred between joining Ubuntu to the domain and making it a domain controller. What should I keep an eye out to avoid in these tutorials?

I get lost between the Kerberos/LDAP/Samba/WinBind etc...and I have a feeling I don't need all of these for something this simple.

Ubuntu Servers :: Get A Samba Server Up And Running To Share With Windows Machines?
i manged to get a samba server up and running to share with my windows machines. But i still want more. My main goal is to be able to share my movies. I have a laptop hooked to my flat screen with 3TB's of external drives, thats whats acting as my server. I have ubuntu desktop installed because i use it to play movies also.

I'm looking to set up something that is a little faster than samba (yes i no trying to share through USB 2.0 external drives and a wifi connection isn't going to be real fast no matter what) but i want to be able to access my server remotely. like maybe FTP? but what i'm asking here is what protocol should i use and what programs? i was thinking gadmin-proftpd and then filezilla to access?

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Home File/torrent Server - 9.10
I've played with ubuntu for quite a while now and i picked up a atom core mini pc for cheap so i thought i'd make a hobby in setting up a simple server to store files on, access files on my xbmc enabled xbox and download torrents whilst i'm at work though the torrents can wait for future projects though i installed ubuntu server 9.10, i'm aware it's CL only, anyway thus far i've managed to set up the ipaddress of it and make it fixed i'm not sure of what to do with hosts at the moment, reading on it isn't making much sense of it's purpose or layout so i've left it as is i permenently mounted a fat32 partition to /media/stuff and changed permissions to 0777 only have one user on it, myself installed samba smbfs smbclient and an openssh server, and can do all the terminal stuff from my normal pc my current issue lies with samba, with gnome desktop i've never had TOO many problems with sharing folders, however i'm stuck where to proceed in regards to editing smb.conf as there's a lot of options, some of which i'm not sure i need

- I've changed the workgroup to home
- under authentication i have security = share
- i added the following section

Code:

Anyway on my windows xp pro machine, i can access \thork which is the machine and i see 'media-stuff' which is a start i guess, but im refuesed access automatically.

Fedora Servers :: Connect To Samba Server ( Share ) From Windows Xp?
if i try to connect to my samba server ( share ) from my windows xp ( or vista, i've tried both ) it says, that the network share cannot be found. i've installed all necessary rpms on my fedora 10, necessary for running a samba server:

Quote:

[root@********* samba]# rpm -qa |grep samba
samba-common-3.2.8-0.27.fc10.i386
samba-3.2.8-0.27.fc10.i386
samba-winbind-3.2.8-0.27.fc10.i386

after that, i've configured the smb.conf file, as follows:

Quote:

[root@*********** samba]# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]
# ----------------------- Netwrok Related Options -------------------------
workgroup = GROUP

[code]....

there is no iptables definition, or any other firewall installed, neither on the server nor the client. i've read through alot of howtos an manuals, but was not able to find the problem.

Server :: File Server For Windows - Mount More Than One Samba Shares As Network Disk
I want to setup a Linux File Server for a small windows network (around 50 users). I do know that I am gona need Smb service/pkg for that. I haven't used Samba for a while now and as per the best of my knowledge, entire communication (including usernames and passwords) between a samba server & windows client machines will be plain text. Is there any way to secure all this communication??

Secondly, if i remember correctly, MS windows wont let me mount more than one samba shares as network disk when all my shares can be accessed by different smb users with different passwords?? is there a solution to this problem? OR may be if there is any other package available for this purpose so that i wont have to use samba?

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Use Samba File Server Username With ''
I currently have to connect to my new samba fileserver using servernameusername instead of just username, if that makes sense(!) I need this to be simplified, as I've had it before on a previous machine, as one of the devices I connect with has a virtual keyboard without a backslash!

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up Synchronization With Samba?
I have two 1TB hard drives, one in my Linux server (running Debian, but I thought I'd ask here anyway) and one in my Windows desktop.

What I would like is a file synchronization program that will automatically (or scheduled via cron) synchronize my hard drive on Linux with my hard drive on Windows via Samba.

Ubuntu Installation :: Setting Up Windows Shares - Samba Not Available
Fairly new to Karmic - wanting to setup some Windows Shares on an external Hard drive. I understand that I need to install Samba to do this but when I try to install it I get the following message:-

pat@CCBC-13112:~$ sudo apt-get install samba
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package samba is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
samba-common-bin smbclient samba-common
E: Package samba has no installation candidate

Fedora Servers :: Setting Up Open Samba Config
I've got a situation where I would normally use NFS, but cannot. So in it's place I need to use a samba share (even though it's linux -> linux). I need it completely open and world writeable as if I had done an rw in an NFS export. I thought I had it as when logged in as a user I can edit delete etc. however the apache user seems to be struggling with creating files.

Here's my smb.conf as it stands.
Code:
[global]
workgroup = WGRP
server string = Samba Server Version %v
security = user
passdb backend = tdbsam
unix extensions = no

[tmp]
comment = Temp Directory
path = /var/tmp
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
browseable = yes

[sites]
comment = Sites Directory
path = /var/www/sites
public = yes
guest ok = no
write list = siteusr
writeable = yes
create mask = 0777
browseable = no
security mask = 0777
directory security mask = 0777
note that the drive is mapped as user siteusr

What I can do to open it up more?

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Samba For Windows 7 WITH User-login?
I am currently attempting to setup Samba 3 (installed) for a basic home-network file-sharing server via Ubuntu 10.04. It seems like (based on my extensive googling and research) nobody wants or has a configuration like I do, but surely SOMEBODY knows how to do this.

The following is my goal for a basic setup.

Folder 1 (share is called "Read-Write"):

-Users from Windows 7 can see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as they so desire.

-Users can accomplish all of this from as "guest."

Folder 2 (share is called "Read-Only"):

-I can log in as my user to see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 2 as I so desire.

-People other than me can log in as "guest."

-"Guest" users from Windows 7 can see, read, and execute programs as desired.

Things I have accomplished:

-Directories exist

-Directories are browseable via Windows 7

-My user has a password for Samba (assigned via "sudo smbpasswd -a matthew)

Things I have not yet been able to accomplish:

-Configure Folder 2 so that Samba asks for login credentials when someone tries to access it SO THAT I an use my Samba user to log in.

-Configure Folder 2 so that, when I log in as my Samba user, I can see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as I so desire.

-Configure Folder 2 so that Windows 7 users can easily access it as guest to browse, read, and execute files and folders in it.

-Configure Folder 1 so that any Windows 7 user can easily access it as guest to see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as they so desire.
