Debian Configuration :: Long Delay In Accessing SAMBA Shares

Jan 27, 2016

When I boot up, or come out of standby, etc, it takes about a minute for my Windows shares on Win 7 to show up under Network. Is there anything I can try that will make this initial connection faster? Either on Debian or the Win7 machine? I have the latest Debian vanilla. This is over wifi. My other devices list the shares right away.

Debian Configuration :: Accessing Samba Share From Xfce

Feb 15, 2016

I currently have a Samba share on a Debian 7 system. This share was only ever used by Windows systems on the network.

I just finished setting up a Debian 8 system with Xfce, and now I would like to connect to the share. I already installed gvfs-backends and gvfs-bin. When I go to Thunar file manager, and click browse network, I'm presented with a "Windows Network" shortcut. When clicked it says: Failed to open "Windows Network". Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory.

OpenSUSE Network :: Accessing Samba Shares In KDE?

Jan 6, 2010

I wonder how to get Samba share access working well...Dolphin supports Samba but it doesn't really mount anything, it seems... Non-KDE Applications therefor can't access samba that way. In Gnome there was a workaround for the same problem. You could simply go to ~/.gvfs in any application and find the samba mounted there.Is there anything like that in KDE? I set up a Samba mount via /etc/fstab for now but that is quite annoying because it fails after each Suspend, changing WLAN Access Points, etc. Then I have to go to the console and manually launch sudo mount -a to get it working again. How can I make things more comfortable?

P.S.: I'm even up for using something else than Samba to talk to my fileserver. However I don't know of anything that would work better in this regard. (NFS would have the exactly same problem for example)

Fedora :: Accessing Samba Shares From Fresh F15 Install

Jun 6, 2011

I am having a problem accessing my samba shares from my notebook that has a fresh install of Fedora 15. I know that the server with the samba shares is working since I can access them from the windose box. I have just moved from using Ubuntu to Fedora and have definitely found my home. How would I tell if samba is running (or any service for that matter) on my notebook? I Installed samba-client

yum install samba-client

Though I still cannot access the shares. All it shows is windows network.

Ubuntu Servers :: Accessing SAMBA Shares Since Upgrade?

May 27, 2010

provide support for a small business that uses Windows machines to access files stored on an Ubuntu server which has just been upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04 (32 bit version). Before the upgrade the users accessed their share by this batch file:


net use x: \servernamesharename /user:username

This would then prompt the user for his or her password which they would enter to allow them access to the share.Since upgrading to 10.04, the user gets a "system error 58" stating "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation"If the batch file command is changed to:


net use x: \servernamesharename

The same error message is given. The only work around I have found is to modify the file to read:


net use x: \servernamesharename /user:username password

This is not ideal at all as it makes the password protection useless.When I performed the upgrade I left the smb.conf unchanged. The smb.conf file is:


# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Accessing Samba Shares From Applications?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a NAS running Samba. My Samba shares are accessed from a Windows computer, it works very well.

With the kubuntu 10.04 computer, things are different : I can see the Samba shares in Dolphin, and copy files to the local drive, but lots of applications don't allow me to open a file on a Samba share.

Some applications such as OpenOffice let me browse to the share but refuse to open the remote file

Some other applications don't let me browse to shares at all.

What's up with that ? Surely I'm not the only one wanting to access files on a NAS ? How do other people do it ?

PS I chose kubuntu 10.04 because the 10.10 install hangs, the "ui" workaround I saw here and there did not work, the only solution offered was to go back to 10.04

Networking :: Samba Requesting Password When Accessing Shares ?

Apr 2, 2010

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.


From /var/log/samba/smbd :

Networking :: Samba Client Accessing Windows Shares On Secondary Subnet

Sep 13, 2009

I have a machine acting as a gateway for a private network. While it can ping hosts on that private network, I can't use samba (smbclient or smbmount) to access shares on hosts on the private network from that machine. Other machines on the private network can access shares on other machines - just not the gateway server.

Here's how the gateway is configured:

When I try to connect to ports 139 or 445 (via smbclient or smbmount) the mount() system call times out. As I mentioned above, I can ping those hosts, so UDP packets work but TCP packets seem to get blocked or lost.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.

Aug 22, 2011

I just installed Fedora on my desktop (previously Ubuntu)

The root and boot partitions are on a OCZ RevoDrive, which is seen as 2 separate drives and used software raid0 for speed.

OpenSUSE Install :: Long Delay During Boot - 11.2

Feb 21, 2010

I'm trying to track down a longggg delay during OpenSUSE 11.2 boot. It's 1 to 2 minutes long.

1. I upgraded the kernel to "vmlinux-" a while back, and I'm "kind of" thinking this is when it began. It seems in previous versions (I came from 10.3) that the grub menu always contained the previous version. That doesn't seem to be true in 11.2. Is there any way to tell OpenSUSE YaST/zypper to keep the previous version and leave the entry in grub?

2. What does this message mean: "BIOS EDD facility v0.16 2004-Jun-25, 2 devices found"?

I haven't pinpointed the error, and there is nothing really obvious in /var/log/messages. The drives are there, and the network is up. I'm sort of leaning towards the new kernel. What processes wait 60 seconds? If I watch the console closely for the message before the delay, it can vary.

General :: Cannot Connect To Samba Shares On Reinstalled Debian

Apr 27, 2010

I've reinstalled my debian file server - was running 4.0 and went for a clean 5.04 install.

Everything worked out well, system is running even more smoothly but I cannot connect to the shares.

I had backed up my smb.conf and put that one in place, the users are created + smbpasswd's are set.
Samba is running and yesterday (day of reinstall) I was able to connect without any problem but today I get a Quote:

Smbstatus shows that there has been a connection, the username is listed in /etc/passwd and I entered the password once again but no difference.

At first, I thought there was a problem with file/directory permissions but I have restored the data with rsync so those permissions are like before.

I have read quite some about setting up/configuring Samba and I guess it must have something to do with credentials but no clue to where to look anymore.

Debian Configuration :: Server Services Delay After Wakeup From Suspend

I'm trying to lower consumption of my server/HTPC. After wakeup from pm-suspend server/HTPC is ready to use in 1 or 2 seconds .For example if I suspend it while watching movie in KODI, after resume movie starts playing instantly. But some services (SSH and SAMBA) are not running. I thought it was network problem so I change configuration to static (not DHCP). SAMBA and SSH starts like 15 seconds after wakeup.

Debian Configuration :: CIFS Mount Causes 90-sec Timeout Delay During Shutdown

Nov 17, 2015

I'm using Debian 8.2 from a very recent download of the latest NetInst (less than 2 weeks). I'm sort of new to Linux - More accurately, I've used Unix and Linux extensively in the past, so most of my knowledge is dated. In particular, the whole systemd / systemctl paradigm is completely new to me.

Problem: I've added an entry to /etc/fstab to mount a NAS drive as CIFS. When I do a system shutdown or reboot, the system hangs for 90 seconds trying to unmount the NAS. If I manually umount the NAS prior to shutdown / reboot everything works fine.

I've done a fair amount of investigation and web searches, but haven't found a fix yet. Apparently several people were encountering similar problems about a year back, and it seems pretty clear that the root cause what ordering of steps in the shutdown process, e.g., WLAN being turned off before unmounting filesystems. This seems to have been resolved for most users (no one is discussing it any more), but I'm now running into the same issue. Ugh.

I tried to add a shell script to /etc/rc0.d to umount the NAS first in the shutdown process. This had no effect. I assume this is because the new systemd / systemctl paradigm supplants the old /etc/rc model of runlevel control, though it is rather baffling (to me, at least) as to why /etc/rc* still exists if the system is no longer using it...?

Here's some things I'd like to try, but how to proceed:

1. In the new systemd / systemctl paradigm, how do I examine and change the ordering of steps in the shutdown process? I've seen a lot of documentation on systemd, but nothing tells me how to do what I used to be able to do with /etc/rc with a simple rename of a symlink. If I knew how to look at the order of shutdown and change that ordering, I'm fairly certain I could identify and resolve this issue.

2. Is there some other way to mount my CIFS NAS other than editing /etc/fstab? Is it possible that my manual edit to /etc/fstab is the cause of this issue? My research into systemd indicates that it IS supposed to be compatible with /etc/fstab. I have not yet found documentation describing how to mount a filesystem at boot WITHOUT editing /etc/fstab ...

Ubuntu Networking :: My Internet Connection Has A Long Delay

Aug 9, 2010

My problem is that every time I use the Ethernet connection (I don't have wireless card) there is a delay of around 30s, even though my download speed is not affected at all once the connection is "established" , no matter what application I use (Synaptic, ssh, firefox, google chrome,wget, update manager, etc.). A weird thing is that my ethernet connection always appears as active.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has experienced this issue, since I've read the same problem on other forums, but no one has come up with a solution. I hope that there will be a solution at last by this time.
I've been around with this problem for about 1 month, I've tried all sorts of tweaks that involve disabling ipv6 and nothing happens. I don't really know what triggered off this issue because it all started all of a sudden and I don't remember having installed any important update by the time this happened (I did a clean installation of Ubuntu 10.04 32bits on the release date).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Long Delay After Playing Any Audio ?

Dec 25, 2010

I'm having a problem where almost every audio player creates a 2-3 second delay after playing any audio.

I'm working on some text-to-speech using espeak and festival. Festival would provide much better speech quality, but it created a 2-3 second delay after any speech before the application exited, which prevents using it. When I started investigating the issue, it turned out that many other programs display the same behavior.

For example, if I play a 1-second WAV of silence using "play", it displays "Done" very soon and then waits for 2-3 seconds before exiting. mplayer does the same. mpg123 does the same. mpg321 does the same. ogg123 does the same.

When playing multiple files mpg123 and ogg123 do not generate the pause between the files, but mplayer does. I'm wondering can there be a bug that causes programs to hang when closing the audio device?

That's so many programs it must be some kind of problem in the system, not the individual programs. However not every program displays this behavior; espeak exits immediately after the speech has ended. (Might it for instance exit without closing the audio device properly?)

I haven't noticed anything similar before I upgraded to 10.10. I'm running XUbuntu on a Thinkpad T60. The laptop has an Intel HD Audio with AD1981HD codec [url].

Debian :: Setting Up Search And Mount Local Samba Shares?

Aug 1, 2010

I do know how to set up the traditional Window shares by modifying fstab and mkdir /mnt/share. What I was wondering in this day of laptops, if there was a script that could find and mount Window shares that were hooked into your local network, but only on a temporary bases. Something like what you would do mount a usb connection, such as a camera that you had the drivers for. I do know that networks are more complex, was just interested if something like that was developed yet. Just to let you know that my scripting skills are zero, and my ability to do so less.

Debian Configuration :: OpenSSH - Sshd Returns Login Prompt With Delay

Jul 11, 2011

On a Debian 5.0.8 I have a problem with OpenSSH server (sshd): when connecting to it from another host there is always a 10 seconds delay before sshd gives login prompt to the client. After the connection is established the communication goes on without any interruption. This long delay started to happen a few months ago and sshd_config was not changed at that time.

Here is a short description of the conversation between the putty client (on MS Windows) and sshd:
- putty client starts connection to sshd
- 10 s delay
- sshd returns "login as:"
- user types username in putty window
- sshd returns "password:"
- user types password in putty window
- sshd returns MotD and shell prompt

Here is a short description of the conversation between the OpenSSH client (on a Debian 6) and sshd:
- client does "ssh"
- 10 s delay
- sshd returns "Password:"
- user types password
- sshd returns MotD and shell prompt

I tried connecting from:
- local host - NO DELAY
- a host on the same subnet - delay exists
- a host on another subnet - delay exists

I've found the following suggestions but to no avail (of course I restarted sshd after changing its configuration):
- on server put "UseDNS no" at the end of /etc/ssh/sshd_config
- in /etc/hosts on the server define mappings between IP addresses and host names for the ssh clients
- on client use "GSSAPIAuthentication no" in /etc/ssh/ssh_config

Here are some logs and configurations:

Ubuntu Servers :: CUPS Very Long Delay Between Sending Jobs And Printing?

Feb 17, 2011

I've set up a cups printing server using ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. The printer's a HP Laser Jet 1018 I can connect to it over vpn using openvpn from my netbook which is also running ubuntu 10.04.1. I can connect to the printer all right and test page prints without a problem. But if I try to print anything else, it take at least 5 minutes before the job is successfully send and printed out.

Also, on the client side, for example, the file size would like 500k, and when it finally prints out, the file size on the server side is less than 10k. The file is a black and white document, and from what I can tell, the printed page is not missing any information.

Ubuntu Installation :: What's Up With Scary Beep Sound And Long Boot Up Delay?

Jul 18, 2011

I have a Macbook 5,2, on which I'm triple booting OS X - Linux - Windows, using bootcamp and rEFIt.I had a variation of Ubuntu 10.04 called Uber Student as the linux installation.I installed Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64 instead, by choosing the EFI boot option.Now this gave me some problems. When I shot down, the Macbook gives me a troubling long beep sound.When I start up, I'm still able to boot up into rEFIt and Grub2, but there is a big delay with the screen being black for about 30 seconds and the little white light in the left corner of the Macbook is blinking feverishly. I read something about a guy which had a similar problem and the process seemed to mess up the firmware on his Macbook, so he had to have his MB changed.

What's up with the scary beep sound and the long boot up delay?Secondly, when I want to do an update of the Ubuntu system, the update manager asks me to do a partial upgrade, which includes removing the grub-EFI, resulting in a system that won't boot...
