Debian Configuration :: Share Files Between Machine And Some Windows 95/98 Machines?
Apr 22, 2010
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 need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
I have a Win7 deskptop (host) and want to run a linux virtual machine; but I want that linux virtual machine to be able to access a directory on the host machine (in this case, to serve a web directory).
What virtual machine software would you recommend for this?
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
I am trying to share files between my Windows XP machine and ubuntu server. I set up and configured samba following the instructions in the Online Ubuntu Server Guide. [URL] This is the abbreviated version of my smb.conf file here.
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.1.101/24 # map to guest = Bad User
What is the best way to share files in virtualbox between host/machine I thought of trying usb but the devices are all greyed out. I know the fix for this but I have to search for it, permission problem I think? Or is there a more elegant way
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
"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 recently did a clean install of Debian 5, and a backup program called BackupPC. Both machines are on a small local network served by a router. Both machines have statically mapped IP addresses, done by the router via matching MAC addresses in a table of corresponding IP addresses (192.168.0.2 (HP-PC-XP), 192.168.0.3 (Debian). I configured Backup PC correctly (I think)...Upon running Backuppc, the first thing it tries to do when its time to run a backup is to ping the machine to be backed up. The name of the PC is stored in a backup pc config file. (I believe BackupPC does a DHCP request with the machine name to get the ip address, but not sure). Running the backup results in BackupPC tells me that it can't ping my xp machine. If I open up a terminal window in debian, i can successfully ping my xp machine when i use the ip address. 126.96.36.199 If I ping using the host name of the xp machine (e.g. HP-PC_XP), the ping command displays some ip address i've never seen...something like 188.8.131.52....how is it getting that and how can it be corrected?
I recall that nslookup looks at the local hosts file first to resolve the name....i look in my hosts file and found no such address (only contained localhost)....now what?
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 have 3 home computers. Two of them are dual boot Windows and Ubuntu. The third runs only Ubuntu. I want to share files and two printers among the three machines. What is the best approach to doing this.
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 am trying to establish the easiest way to share a folder from an Ubuntu machine to a Windows machine.In the past I have added things to smb.conf and that has all worked fine but what I am trying to do is to figure out what the "new user" way of doing this is so that when I am helping other people I know I am getting them to do the simplest thing.I completely removed samba and reinstalled it so that I didn't have any configuration. Right clicked on a folder and selected "Sharing Options" ticked the "Share this folder box" gave it a name and a comment and ticked the other two boxes.
When I went to the windows laptop then it kept asking for a username/password and nothing worked.Back on the ubuntu machine I did sudo smbpasswd -a [username] and created a blank password. Now from the windows machine I can access the shared folder.Is the smbpasswd step still required? It's very confusing for a new user as there is no suggestion that anything other than right clicking on the folder and choosing the options you want would be required. Is it something to do with the fact that this is an ubuntu machine that has gradually been upgraded through versions and this problem wouldn't have been there from a new install?
I have a external harddisk attached to my linux PC.I have a laptop having windows 7 on my network.I want to to be able to open up the folder in the external harddisk(linux partition) and check the files from my laptop. People suggest samba. But I am not able to configure correctly. Please excuse me and give me few detailed instructions.
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?
I am trying to share folders between my laptop and desktop. The desktop runs Ubuntu 10 ,and the laptop I'm dual-booting between pclinux OS and another OS. I can't see either machine from either machine. The desktop shows a "windows network" when I go to the network location in file manager. When I run PC Linux, I can't even see the desktop which runs Linux as well, and I've tried to configure shares in the PC Linux OS Control Center, but I obviously failed. I installed gshare on the Ubuntu machine, and PC Linux has GUI tools(whew!) to configure NFS, SMB, and Deb-whatever the other one's name is. As a new convert, I've went into properties,permissions, because it's what I'm familiar with. I just wish someone would tell me if I should maybe just go back to the other OS or not, as I've had so many problems every since trying the switch. I really like this system, but it seems as if you need to be some kind of computer programmer or something to be able to do the most basic things (install software,wireless,share files). I'm not a stupid person, and what I lack in knowledge, I compensate for in desire to learn.
I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.
My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.
I am trying to share files between my Win 7 machine and Linux. I already did all the stuff needed with Samba. My problem is that when I try to connect Linux to Win7 it asks for a password. I put in my account name and password for Win7 but it keeps saying its wrong. disabled password protection on Win7 still didnt work. Then I disabled Homegroup... Still didnt work.
I would like to transfer my music library and movie collection from my Desktop computer running Windows Vista and my laptop running Debian Squeeze. I have the laptop connected via wireless but it's possible to connect the two either directly with a CAT5e cable or through the router. I'm just wondering what the best way to do this would be.
I have read the wiki and several online tutorials and still cannot get my machines to talk to each other over NFS.Both are amd64 with Debian testing. Tutorials invoke programs that do not exist in testing, instructions are inadequate or too old.
I had run one script in unix machine and want to copy the results to a windows machineBoth the machines are on different networksIn linux machine trying to do the ftp to the windows machine its giving connection refused. How to chech whether ftp is running on that linux machine or not?Also tried scp and ssh , both are failing
i use dropbox to share files about some classes at the university with a friend of mine.since he is on windows, my hidden files are shown to him. is there any way to make the files hidden on windows machines through ubuntu?
I want to setup some virtual machines that will use the same architecture and debian-version as my host-machine. I have started to setup VMs with a netinstall-image and now want to add more software using apt-get. As most of the software I will use is already installed on my host-machine I wonder if there is any way to configure apt in such a way that it will not download packages from the internet, but will use the packages from my host-machine to save network-traffic. Is there a good may to populate VMs using the debs from the host-machine.
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 have a linux (Ubuntu server 8) that is busy collecting data files for me, but I need to see them on a windows machine. The winXP computer is in an AD domain. The ubuntu server is running Samba and I believe I have set up sharing - I can see/list the files on winXP. however, when I try to open the files to read ( in this case by Wireshark ) I get a permissions denial. Where and how can I set those permissions?
I have several (say, 50) machines running ubuntu.I want them to be centrally controlled.That is, each machine should get permit from central machine before installing any software etc.I googled quite a lot but could not find the solution...
