Fedora :: Gnome Personal File Sharing Not Working?

Aug 23, 2010

I enabled Personal File Sharing under System > Preferences > Personal File Sharing. I clicked on Share public files on network and closed it. Then I put some files that I wanted to share in the Public folder and I went to another computer that was on the same router (they are both running Fedora 13) and I clicked on the Network tab (bookmark) in nautilus and there are no files there.

Networking :: Personal File Sharing On Fedora 14?

Mar 8, 2011

My wife and I activated the 'Personal File Sharing' on our two Fedora #9 laptops. We can exchange photos and text files via our "public" folders, just fine. Entire setup took less than 20 minutes. We have not been able to get the Fedora #14 version of 'Personal File Sharing' to work using same, online and 'in system', help directions for both the F#9 and F#14. After four eves of looking I have not found any more detailed, install/activate help files anywhere. I can't ask my system manager because that's us. At this point the only thing I can think of is that there may be some part of the F#14 security structure that needs to be addressed and tweaked.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting The File Sharing Working In Gnome 3?

Apr 29, 2011

trying to share a few folders with Windows PCs. Usually I just right click and choose "Sharing Options" from nautilus and choose to share it. This isn't there in gnome 3 via gnome3 ppa for Ubuntu. I've tried installing and adding the folders I wanted using samba configuration tool and gadmin-samba tools. I've also installed just about anything that could potentially have anything to do with file sharing from synaptic including:

samba, nautilus-share, smbclient, windbind

and whole lot of other stuff in hope that I had just been missing stuff. I also booted my laptop which is running 11.04 with Unity and I right clicked and selected "Sharing Options" like the usual way and shared a folder and then installed gadmin-samba and the samba configuration tools and the folder I shared wasn't included there. Meaning it isn't using the same thing? Also the only thing installed when shareing a folder is samba and some libpam-something. Two files! Then shares perfectly! Why is it so difficult to set up a simple share with Gnome 3? No matter what I do I boot into Windows on my laptop and try to connect to my network share the same way I always have and it doesn't work.

Debian :: Remove The Personal File Sharing Banner In Nautilus?

Oct 1, 2010

I do not, and will not, use this feature. This banner to open the configuration is just using up space.

I am sure that this is very simple but I can't seem to figure out how to get the bugger off of Nautilus.

Ubuntu Networking :: Personal File Sharing/share Files Doesn't Work

Apr 14, 2010

I'm using 10.04 beta...

If I go to system - preferences - personal file sharing, I cannot select "share files over the network." The panel is greyed out and the message "This feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your computer" is shown

It ever so usefully doesn't tell me what those packages are though! - It'd be nice to have more useful error messages or the ability to click to install them...

Anyway, what do I have to do to get this going again?! I've installed everything to do with samba, webdav that I can find but still no cigar...

I've been searching on google but the only solution seems to be to change the name of the files (which didn't work). Is there any way to remove the banner? I'm not 3yrs old I know how to share files and don't need to be reminded where i can receive files.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Get NFS File Sharing Working

Feb 24, 2010

So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)

So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.

Fedora Networking :: WPA2 Personal Not Working With F15

May 29, 2011

I was using Fedora 14 for some months and my wireless was working fine. I've set up a hidden network with WPA2 Personal authentication. My laptop has an Atheros AR2413 802.11bg NIC and my modem/router is a Topcom Webracer. Yesterday I upgraded to Fedora 15 and I can't login to that network now. The only way to login again is to boot with the old Fedora 14 kernel that still shows up in my grub menu.I've searched this on these forums there are plenty of people with the same problem but the only suggestions are that the network card isn't supported by Fedora or the network card doesn't support 802.11bg.some suggest changing the authentication method in the router... and the only one who got it solved was by rebooting the router... None of this addresses the fact that the same hardware/network was working just fine in Fedora 14. And I still can't find a way to have a wireless WPA2 connection with Fedora 15.What can I do to fix it?

Debian :: Easy File Sharing Option In Gnome Grayed Out?

Mar 30, 2010

I'm using Gnome for the first time (after a long time with KDE) and am trying to share a folder the easy way. After installing nautilus-share (and samba, samba-common and samba-common-bin)I can right click on a folder and make it shared. Problem is that the option 'Guest access (for people with no user account)' is always grayed out.On some Ubuntu forums I saw people fix it by purging and reinstalling samba but that didn't work for me.I know how to manually setup a share in samba, just want to figure out why this isn't working and how to get this going.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get File Sharing Over Wlan Working

May 23, 2010

I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File-sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2010

I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
netbios name = oak
security = share

[Code]....

I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Sharing Stoped Working?

Dec 1, 2010

I set up a Ubuntu Server for my home network to share among Win XP and Ubuntumachines.Initially everything worked fine with all Win XP machines being able to share files on the server; however, after I installed and setup SSH between my Ubuntu machines and my Ubuntu Server I now cannot share and/or even see my Server directory from Win XP or Ubuntu machines through the Samba.I have tried for 2 days to figure out the problem without success.Did I break something while setting up the SSH? How can I fix Samba?Here's some things I have setup or tried so far:1. Samba users are setup and were working previously.2. Samba share drives were setup and working previously.3. I can see the Server using SSH or SFTP from my Ubuntu machines.4. I have gone over the Samba config file numerous times5. I am administering Samba on the server via the terminal and Webmin

Fedora Networking :: RH Enterprise 5 And - 11 File Sharing

Aug 25, 2009

I have two machines on the same network. I want to share files from my Red Hat server to my Fedora 11 box. I want to know what is the easiest, most secure way of doing so. My machines are on a public wire (not an issue really as I don't have sensitive stuff on there), however I'd like to learn how to secure the server, but yet still get access from my Fedora box. Anyone provide me with a guide or help on which protocol (SSH, Samba? NFS) to use?

Fedora Networking :: Gentoo PC - F12 PC For LAN - File Sharing And Internet

Aug 8, 2010

I want to connect my newly created Gentoo DAW to a Fedora 12 PC, for file sharing and Internet purposes. The Fedora PC has 2 NICs, where one of them is connected to the apartment's Router. The Gentoo PC has 1 NIC. I am using a crossover Ethernet cable for connecting them. [UPDATE] I changed to crossover cable, now my two machines are able to ping each other! Here's the IPs:

PC1(Gentoo): 192.168.1.2
PC2(Fedora): 192.168.1.3 --- PC2(Fedora) to Router IP: 192.168.0.10
Router's IP: 192.168.0.1

All I need now is for PC1 to enter the internet... How do I proceed from this point?

Fedora Installation :: Setup XP File And Printer Sharing In Home Network

I'm going to setup a File and Printer Sharing in my little home network... 3 Computers actively connected to the Web through a single ADSL2+ Wireless Router (number of Computers will increase later) At the moment 2 of the computers are running Fedora 10 and 1 running Windows XP...

Now i want to setup the 3 machines to use 1 printer which is connected to one of the Fedora 10 machines, and i want File Sharing to be enabled so each machine can easily view each others shared files and also be able to print when ever needed (ofcourse the machine with the printer will have to be on for the printing process to happen) I've installed Samaba on each Fedora Machine, enabled sharing but i dont seem to be able to view the Windows machine or each other....
