Debian Configuration :: Access Windows Share From Server?
Feb 16, 2010
"My network" is behind a firewall inside a larger windows network with AD. My network has a Debian Server with samba 3.2 running. One of the hosts that are on the outside of my firewall has a share that I and other Linux-users on the debian server wants to access.
I've got a fresh Wheezy/Xfce install.I'm trying to access a remote samba share the gigolo way. It is an external USB hard drive connected to my router. I can access it read only using the following URL with Icedove: smb://bbox/
Anyway, this is just to try and give might-be-useful information, but ultimately, I don't really want to use fusesmb. I would rather have the gigolo way working, allowing local network shares browsing, auto-connect, etc.
I'm running kernel release 2.6.26-2-686 on a i686 and are trying to share files between my machine and some Windows 95/98 machines. When I enter smb://ip_number/share_name in Nautilus, it works. I can browse the files. When I try the same with smbclient or smbmount, it complains.
smbclient -I=ip_number -L=//server/share gives cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe srvsvc to machine tf_calibration. Error was ERRSRV - ERRerror (Non-specific error code.)
I use Debian Squeeze on my laptop, and in my office we have a WinXP box where we store all our documents and stuff. When I'm in the office, I can directly mount my directory to edit documents, and at home/wherever I can use VPN to connect to the box so it's no problem again.
However: I'd like to know if there is a way to set up a directory on my laptop, that I can use even when offline, and then when I'm connected to the office computer, it automatically syncs with it.
I try to connect my Debian Jessie to my Windows share
This is what I have done:
-> 1 - create an .smbcredentials file located in my /home directory (with account / password and domain) -> 2 - implement /etc/fstab with information like that : //192.168.x.x/Animes/media/Animes cifs uid=toto,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,credentials=/home/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf800
and when I try to go on my windows share, I have this message:
An error occurred while accessing 'Home', the system responded: mount: only root can mount //192.168.x.x/Audio-Video-01 on /media/Audio-Video-01
I think about one thing, if uid=toto is different in fstab than my current debian account session name, it is possible the problem came because of that?
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
I can't be the first one with this problem. What am I missing?
I have setup Samba servers in the past, just none under SELinux. The last one I configured was a couple years ago, so I wouldn't doubt I'm a bit rusty.
---- Environment summary: Clean server install of CentOS 5.4 includes SELinux - lets call this 'server' - updated samba to 3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1
Client1 - Windows XP sp4 - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above Client2 - Windows Vista - WINS configuration uses 'server' noted above
---- What works / what doesn't ------ Clients can see the server (XP and vista) in network neighborhood. The following does not work from windows (xp or vista) net view net view \server net view \server-ip net view \servershare
This does work on the server smbclient -L \server smbclient -L \server --user validuser smbclient -L \client1 --user validuser
---- What I have configured and tried (config/output below) -------- firewall ports for samba are open SELinux enforcing or permissive file context is set on share samba booleans are set

I have a windows based Domain Name Server (DNS) and I have a debian pc connecting to this network, obtaining an ip address via a DHCP server. I can ping any machine on the network using the ip address however I would like to be able to ping other machines on the network using their host names. For example I would like to be able to type... ping machine1HostName ... instead of ... ping 00.00.00.00 To do this I realise I need to tell debian to access the windows DNS but how can I do this?
I have a home Debian server running, and i would like to set it up as a gateway. I have 2 networkcards in it. So internet comes from the modem and on the other card i want to setup a dhcp server and it has to share the internet. But i want it also to connect to a vpn and share the internet of the vpn.. Is that possible?
Following yesterday's and then today's upgrade of my Debian 8 32-bit system (among other things to samba 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u2 (yesterday: ...deb8u1)) I cannot connect my Mint 17.3 laptop to the server anymore. Were there any changes to smb.conf regarding authentication or other aspects that might lead to this problem? I am enclosing part of my smb.conf. By the way - I also have trouble using ssh to connect to the Debian machine, such as the ssh-command taking "for ever" and then getting the message "Write failed: Broken pipe" when entering an ls-command on the command line.

I need to set up a Debian server in a windows network so that users can securely ftp docs to the Debian server and then pull docs from the server when needed - using a secure ftp session. I have the Debian Server built and IP'd. Do I just need to set up the vsftpd.conf and thats it? Right now I am just concerned with getting ftp working.
Overview I have a couple of Pc's that I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on, standard installs. No install issues I have a FreeNAS box set up with a windows share for various things pictures, videos, musicThe files are located in a directory Media, i.e., media My Pictures mediaMy Videos mediaMy Music each folder has lots of files and directories, specifically My Music has >2000 files/top level directories I connect to the FreeNAS share with no issue and can browse all the files, EXCEPT....The issueI cannot access the My Music directory. Can access Media, see all directories but when I click My Music I get >>The contents could not be displayed.... Sorry, could not display all the contents of "My Music": Invalid argument<
I run a mediaserver on Archlinux, working perfectly (or almost). I have set up NFS v3 and that worked for me on these clients:
- Debian Lenny - Archlinux 64bit
Now I've upgraded my Lenny-box to squeeze and I see that 2 of my 3 shared folders (tdone and twatch) are mounted like they should and the third one (media) doesn't come up. A 'mount -a' as root gives this error: mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting (null) My relevant fstab-lines:
It's the strangest thing, I've done this on a couple othervers with no issues whatsoever... here goes:I need to mount a windows share to copy some files to it, so I used this command which gets no errors:
Code: sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=XXXXX,password=XXXXX,domain=XXXX.com //192.168.12.30/operrors /home/XXXX/scripts/operrors
he moved in a new place and there is a huge share on the network machine which runs windows... however he has fedora 10 installed on a desktop pc with a big screen and asked me to configure it so it can access the share... i have almost no experience with fedora and i've been trying to do this for two days now... i installed the samba package, but now what? how to do this because the exact commands are unknown to me... i have the root password and everything else on the network... so i just need to know what ot write in order to be able to mount all the TBs of information on the server...
I'm currently using ubuntu on my laptop, and I want to access my windows 7 folders via network and file sharing...but there's this problem...
Everytime I want to connect to my Windows 7 pc, it will just prompt me a "password required for xx pc"...and keep looping on every username/password [afaik from the windows account], and I'm unable to login to it.
Even tho I've set "LmCompatibilityLevel" dword key, 1 or 2 [restarted every set] under LSA..it's still the same thing happens...
Unable to access linux(ubuntu 10.10) share drive on my windows PCIn my office we have few linux (obuntu 10.10) computers and 3 computers running on windows. We have data stored on one of the shared drives of a linux(ubuntu 10.10) system which has samba installed and we are able to access that folder from other linux systems and 1 windows xp system where it asks for user name and password and is able to access the data while in other 2 windows systems (with 1 having xp and 1 having windows 7) we are unable to access the folder because it does not ask for user name and password and it shows an error network drive not accessible as you may not have the permission.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop right now. I have an external western digital terabyte drive plugged into it. I am able to see it and view it fine. Let's work with my music folder for example. I want to be able to access this music from my Windows 7 laptop so that I may add it to my itunes. However, when I enter the \servershare from the windows 7 laptop it says that the "server" is found but the "share" seems to be invalid. I've checked this 20 times and setting the share name to "music". I've rebooted 2 times on each computer yet to no avail. If I make a share on the Ubuntu desktop I can access it from the laptop. So it seems like it just gets lost when looking inside the external. This was just working last week, then I had to blow away they win 7 lappy and now it just won't work!
I had the previous edition of Ubuntu Desktop Edition installed on my Acer Aspire 1 and it asked me to upgrade which I then confirmed and proceeded to do. When it was done it started up with the Ubuntu Netbook edition and Samba was removed.
How do I access a windows share with a netbook edition, because there's no places menu? What programs / addons do I need to install to be able to access windows shares when using the netbook edition?? Otherwise, how can I revert back to my previous edition of Ubuntu which I was happy with?
I have set up RHEL 5 file server with Winbind and samba services running.I am able to assign and authenticate windows XP users against my RHEL 5 server.No issues.But one or two of my users are using Windows 7 Ultimate edition and they are not able to access my network samba shares.I can view the shares in windows 7 box but trying to access gives me "network access denied error".But i can access the same share in Windows xp machine for the above tested users.Working great but not in windows 7 box.I haven't tested with Vista OS yet.
I am using Squessze and Gnome. When I try to use the gui System>Administration>Network or Users and Groups I get the error The configuration could not be loaded. You are not allowed to access the system configuration.Everything was working before. I read around a bit. In some cases,it was caused by mismatching group and password files after using the gui. I do not know how to check if they are matching. Of course I do not know for sure that is the problem in my case.
I installed a new squeeze serverXen Hypervisor runs the server as Dom0 anda virtual Windows XP.The server runs samba, postfix, dovecot, squid, cups and hylafax with a Frritz ISDN card (module fcpci.ko).The used memory of Dom0 rises slowly (about 5MB /h) until the system crashes.As a workaround i installed a reboot every 24 hours.htop shows normal behavior.The system is already in production, so i can't stop services to track this bug.I need some hints how to debug the running system to find out, where the memory gets lots.
I created nfs share using the system-config-nfs gui on rhel server but is ther a method to access it from another rhel5 server using graphical interface?my question is there a method to access nfs share in gui?
