Fedora :: Can't Gain Access To Samba In Printer Setup / Make It Possible?

Aug 23, 2011

When trying to install a new printer I can't get the samba to show under the network printer list. I even tried the "localhost" method & it still doesn't show. Samba is running fine & I can navigate to my shares. Even running the printer config. in the terminal result in no errors & no list.

Anyone have any ideas? This is the first I've encountered this... not even to sure what to google.

Fedora :: Can't Even Gain Access With The DVD?

Jul 20, 2009

After installing Fedora 6 (and probably any later version) I find that access to the add/remove section is denied unless I have an Internet connection which I don't have. I just do not see any reason why this is done this way! One can't even gain access with the DVD Is there a way to circumvent this nuisance from the terminal Does anyone know why this is put into the installation in the first place.?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Log In As Root To Try To Gain More Access?

Nov 26, 2009

I just upgraded to Fedora 12 on my computer. Now I can't connect to the net. Under network I show the two connections (neither working). The "connect" and "disconnect" AND the "delete" buttons are all grayed out (?). I also can't log in as root to try to gain more access. Probably just a new way of doing things. I was upgrading from F7 so it was a bit of a jump.

Does the network utility work differently from 7? Am I now rootless? It would seem that my wifi card sees the net as I can see the routers out there, but can't connect. I'm sure I'm using the correct WEP.

Networking :: Samba Network Printer Setup - How To Add

Jun 7, 2010

I would like to create a dedicated Samba print server. I have two printers on my LAN, one printer came with its own NIC and the other is on a Win server box. I would like to setup Samba so that I can just access that server (Samba printer server) and both network printers will show up on there for me to connect to. On that note, can I also load the drivers on my Samba server? Drivers for different Windows flavours and also Mac OSX drivers.

Server :: Not Able To Make Samba Share That Has Write Access

Mar 21, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 server on an PII Compaq. Read an article "Samba: How to share files for your LAN without user/password" [URL] and some others and can see and pull up files, can't change or delete. Here is my smb.conf:

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which
# are not shown in this example

# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
# - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
# differs from the default Samba behaviour
# - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
# behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
# enough to be mentioned here .....

Ubuntu :: Cannot Gain Access To Terminal

Apr 7, 2011

I've recently created a new user's account in Ubuntu because of some difficulties I was having with network communications. Apparently this has affected my ability to get into a terminal because now, when I submit my user name I get the following:

--single "single crack" mode
--wordlist=FILE --stdin wordlist mode, read words from FILE or stdin
--rules enable word mangling rules for wordlist mode
--incremental[=MODE] "incremental" mode [using section MODE]
--external=MODE external mode or word filter
--stdout[=LENGTH] just output candidate passwords [cut at LENGTH]
--restore[=NAME] restore an interrupted session [called NAME]
--session=NAME give a new session the NAME
--status[=NAME] print status of a session [called NAME]
--make-charset=FILE make a charset, FILE will be overwritten
--show show cracked passwords
--test perform a benchmark
--users=[-]LOGIN|UID[,..] [do not] load this (these) user(s) only
--groups=[-]GID[,..] load users [not] of this (these) group(s) only
--shells=[-]SHELL[,..] load users with[out] this (these) shell(s) only
--salts=[-]COUNT load salts with[out] at least COUNT passwords only
--format=NAME force hash type NAME: DES/BSDI/MD5/BF/AFS/LM/NT/mscash/NETLM/NETNTLM/bfegg/DOMINOSEC/lotus5/raw-MD5/raw-sha1/IPB2/nsldap/openssha/HDAA
--save-memory=LEVEL enable memory saving, at LEVEL 1..3

I've always been able to just install my name and password and things worked smoothly. What is this about and what do I need to do to restore my ability to use a terminal?

Software :: What To Block On Network - Using The VPN Cannot Gain Access ?

Apr 26, 2010

I have got openvpn running on my system with certificates and open to the IP addresses 17.xx.xx.x on the server.

What should I definitely block off from the system so that anyone using the VPN cannot gain access and how should I go about this in the firewall?

I'm guessing to block off intranet access to the webserver.

I have mysql and some mail programs running as well - how can I block those off?

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Gain Access To Server Locally?

Jun 30, 2009

We have a server were we no longer seem to be able to gain access, neither locally or remotely.When we try to connect via SSH we get a "Connection Refused". We have checked that it's not our standard firewall blocking the request, so it can either be the local firewall (which we disabled when installing) or that the process isn't running.However, when we try to login locally on the machine (as root) all we get is "Login failed". We've tried restarting the machine in single user mode to change the root password, and while we can do this succesfully, it still doesn't give us access when rebooting the machine afterwards.No other users (besides the standard users created when installing) are available on the server, so we can't say if this is a problem with the root account, or with logging on in general.

Ubuntu Networking :: What Could Do To Reset Password Or Gain Access To Router?

Jan 14, 2011

I have a friend that recently moved to Linux. She had started out with Ubutnu 9.04, which was giving her a lot of Issues along with being no longer supported, so I recommend Linux Mint 10 to her, since she wanted something closer to Windows. I instructed her on how to do a clean install. Linux Mint installed ok, but when she was about to set up wireless to get on the Internet, she realised that she had forgotten her password. She called her network (Belkin) for assistance to retrieve it. She was told that Linux is not really supported; however they gave her this address to access the router: from her browser which did not work. So there was nothing further they could have done since she couldn't gain access to the router. She is currently only able to use Ethernet connection to get online.

What could she do to reset her password or gain access to the router? I didn't want to tell her to reset the modem in case it will leave her with no internet and no way to setup her router.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gain Access To Encrypted /home Directory?

Jun 6, 2011

I had errors pop up when I tried updating my 10.10 to 11.04 so I ended up having to do it from a Live USB which installs it over everything (fine by me).Unfortunately I forgot I had an encrypted /home directory. So various messages and stuff came up when I tried to log in.nfortunately I don't remember what my encryption passphrase is offhand, so I moved it to a slightly different folder name and had to have a new directory created for my username.It's still there, but how can I try to open it trying the various versions of the passphrase I think it may be? Can I double-click it and try?Also, in the future what is the best way to handle a "fresh" install that I want to connect to my encrypted /home directory?

CentOS 5 Server :: Super Slow Windows Printer Properties Dialogue With Samba Printer

Sep 18, 2009

I have a Centos 5.3 server with Samba file shares and a shared Samba printer. I am not running a domain.

I recently changed my windows desktop pc from an XP machine to a vista 64 machine... It has a different user name. Everything went pretty smoothly - and the and the vista machine found the smba printer - and even downloaded the driver from the samba server. he printer works OK - and the file shares are fine.

The only thing which is quite odd - is that the Printer Properties dialogue takes more than 30 seconds to come up - and every action you attempt with the dialogue takes a similar amount of time.

I will include below the essence of my smb.conf:

Fedora :: Getting Printer Setup After New Install?

Jun 1, 2010

I am having difficulty getting my printer set up after a fresh install of F13KDE. I started a thread similar to what I am now doing, awhile ago. It was met with success. The thread is posted here.


The difference in the way I am doing it this time and the way the thread talks about is that the latter is a wireless config, the former is USB. I have done pretty much all that I can do in the terminal to get my printer recognized, but that is where hp-setup hangs--it doesn't recognize my printer. What do I have to do to get my printer recognized? It is an HP c6380.

Fedora :: Setting Authentication Details For A Samba Printer In F15?

Jun 8, 2011

I've been trying to set up my printer that I'm sharing through a desktop running Windows 7 and am having trouble getting the authentication details to stay saved, or even work, for that matter.

No matter whether or not I tell the New Printer program to remember my authentication details, it doesn't. If I tell it to prompt me if it needs details, I get no prompt. So, in order for me to print a document, I have to tell it to print, then go into the print queue and authenticate it from there.

1. IIs there a way, either manually or through GUI, to either save my authentication details or just have it prompt me upon printing to save me from going into the print queue?

2. This isn't exactly on-topic, but it came up while I tried to set up the printer. Has anyone else had their SMB URI come up incorrectly with the spaces incorrectly rendered as "20" instead of "%20:?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Add USB Printer Via The YaST2 Printer Configuration Setup Tool In 11.3

Aug 26, 2010

I am unable to add my USB printer via the YaST2 Printer Configuration setup tool in openSUSE 11.3. The printer, a Dell Color Laser 1320c, was last used with openSUSE 11.2, and setup was entirely uneventful. No driver is provided by Dell, so I used the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C525A Linux driver. The problem: To add a print queue in 11.3, a Connection must be specified (parallel, USB, network, etc). However, the configuration wizard fails to show the presence of the USB print device.


This printer was working just eight weeks ago under 11.2, and 11.3 is obviously able to detect its presence and identify it correctly. I feel certain the solution is simple, but I haven't found documentation that provides the answer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Locate Printer Drivers In Network Printer Setup?

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to set uamsung clx2160N as a standalone network printer on my home network. It is a printer with standalone network capability and is connected directly to my router and has a static IP number. We have a few Windows computers at home and they had no problem detecting the printer, installing the drivers and working. Unfortunately my Ubuntu computer recognises the printer and I can even access it's setup and diagnositcs through its IP number. However when I try to add it as a printer, drivers for it cannot be located. #ve tried setting it up three ways:1. Using Samsung's own setup package - finds printer and all the details it needs to work but offers no drivers2. Using Ubuntu's printer setup - recognises printer but stalls at Searching for Drivers dialog3. Trying to *** printer using CUPS - no problem finding and recognising printer, but when I come to search for the driver I get Internal Server Error.

I have of course been trying to do all of these as root. That's the limit of my knowledge reached and searches on the net aren't helping me either. The printer works fine directly connected via USB, so the drivers are on the computer somewhere. How do I get them set up to use the printer on the network?
