Fedora Networking :: How To Share Folder To Acces Trough Another Fedora System?
Aug 16, 2011
Maybe the most stupid question you guys ever heard, but i do not find the solution.Now that i have acces on the netbook i would like to share a folder on my desktopcomputer so i can acces it with the netbook when im in the bedroom.(moviefolder)But how do i share a folder in Fedora 15?
Username and password are the same on desktopcomputer and netbook.
desktop computer is named koen-pc
netbook is named koen-net
1. I cant share a folder on an external USB drive. (I have no problem doing so in UBUNTU)
2. I cannot seem to get Samba Swat to work.
I've Tried 127.0.0.1:901 my ip address:901 severname:901
I made sure that xinet was installed and started as well as smb and nmb. I can access other shares on the server just cant get samba swat to work nor can I set up a share on an External USB. I can access it from my side but not my Wifes side. I even made the root of the drive a share like so:
in smb.conf [FreeAgent Drive] comment=Shared Server Drive path= /media/FreeAgent Drive read only = no browseable = yes create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 valid users = argedion, perky
what am i missing or doing wrong? I have a simular set up on a server running UBUNTU 10.10 and it is sharing paths from a USB external. (note: I did not have to share the root of the drive in ubuntu.)
I know that Fedora is not UBUNTU nor GOD willing will it ever be. forgot to mention that firewall is off and i cannot access it even as root
In this post I will give a quick solution for a possible problem with sharing a folder in Fedora 15.I had to spend some time for research and frustration so, hopefully this post will save you from both. If you have Samba installed and configured to share certain folders on your Fedora machine for a Windows network but, they can't be accessed then following might solve the problem:
1. Go to Applications, Other and run FIREWALL
a). go to TRUSTED SERVICES and check SAMBA and SAMBA CLIENT that are located in the list of services b). click APPLY c). go to ICMP FILTER and check ECHO REPLY (PONG) and ECHO REQUEST (PING) c). click APPLY
If your Samba is configured correctly, your shared folder should be available on your Windows network.A little hint: if you don't want other users to use passwords for accessing your shared folder, select SHARE as an Authentication Mode in Samba GUI Configuration Tool, Preferences, Server Settings, Security
Was trying out Fedora 15 but could figure out something: How do I share a folder?
When doing some Googling all I could find were forum posts on how to manually configure samba with smb.conf (a place I refuse to go, its 2011 people), and gnome-user-share which only shares ~/Public and doesn't show up on my Windows computer.
I do know that at least in Ubuntu 10.10 with Gnome 2 all I had to do was right click on a folder at click Sharing. I'm looking for similar ease of use in Fedora.
F12 / Gnome 2.28.2 I'm just trying to share the /home/Public folder with my Mandriva laptop. The "manual" on Gnome's website doesn't give much info, other than clicking the option to share the folder and deciding whether to use a password or not. There has to be more to it, otherwise it'd work.
All I'm looking to do is copy files to and from the folder on the desktop machine from the laptop..
i have downloaded some series into my download folder. apparently i did that as root (cant remember how but ok)now i want to delete some of the folders, but i dont have acces. i tried everything. deleting it while as root, using the command line : " sudo rm -R <folder> was the closest i got and i actually succesfully removed one folder. now the problem is that it was a folder named usr, one word. but when i try to delete a folder with more words, its trying to delete all those words seperatly, like ecery word is a different folder.
I try to set up a Ubuntu server that links 4 PC/Mac machines. How can I modify a folder property so that my linked PC can access (Create and delete) while the Mac can't or the other way around? Now, I have created a folder from Ubuntu, It lets all or none linked computers to have the same right.
1. I installed Windows server 2008, with Active Directory, DNS, DHCP. 2. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and joined it to the domain. Everything is ok. I can see the Ubuntu in the active directory, it gets an Ip address from the DHCP. 3. I create a shared folder on the server 2008. 4. I can access the server from Ubuntu ONLY by going to "Connect to Server" and entering the data to connect.
My problem :I would like to have the shared folder showing up when Ubuntu boots up or when the user is logging IN on the Ubuntu host. I have tried many things without success. I know how to do it so this is fine. BUT i would like a user to be able to access the shared folder without having to do anything (especially for users who are not familiar with computers). What is the best way to do it ?
Today I try to shared a folder for Windows XP using GUI in OpenSUSE 11.1. I created a folder --> right click and click on Share --> Check on "Share with Samba(Microsoft Windows)", "Public" and "Writable". Then connect from Windows using //192.168.100.1/sharefolder. It open up but I can only read (no write access as I check on "Writable"). Did I miss something?
I am using F10 desktop edition, all the computers using windows are able to access the shared folders over lan except me using F10. I have tried many things with smb but still unable to connect.I am new to linux so i dont khow much of its technicalities.kindly suggest how can i be able to access the shared documents ..
I've lasted a lot longer than usual before resorting to asking around, but I've finally gone delightfully mad. I've been trying to access shares based on Windows 7 Ultimate with limited user access on said shares. I've managed to get into my XP machine, another mate's Vista machine and various Linux boxes with no issues, but that's only for shares that are accessible by everyone. The moment I try to get into a share that requires user credentials, I get "Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED".If I try to access restricted shares (be it machine or folder) through Nautilus, I will get a user logon prompt, but it fails. Using smbclient results in just as little success, and now I'm munching through O'Reiley's Samba manual from '99, after realising that I need to basically learn Samba in its entirety to have a hope in hell at getting this to work. The trouble is though, every HOWTO and relevant forum post I get my hands on all seem to concentrate more on the server side of things, and usually servering from a linux box, not the other way around as I'm trying to.
The above Windows 7 machine won't even allow me to view its share contents, whereas the XP machine previously will allow me to browse, but won't allow me to access folders with restricted access. I'm pretty sure there aren't any major issues with the way the Windows 7 machine is setup, as it can be accessed with logon from my Xbox, Ubuntu machine, XP and Vista, with only Fedora having problems getting in as it constantly fails logon. What I'm trying to establish is, if Ubuntu can get in, is there something in my Fedora samba config I'm missing that's preventing me access? My thanks in advance to those of you who've been able to put up with me rambling.
I have 2 web server in my office : http and https. You will find attached the httpd.conf and ssl.conf. I can acces the https server from home, but not the http one.
What I did : configure the router to forward port 80 to my fedora 11 machine open port 80 with system-config-network created a virtualhost
The same exact steps have been done for port 443
I can access both server locally but only the https server remotelly.
Here are my iptables :
you can try to acces my servers using [url]
I made httpd to listen to port 8080, and done all the port forwarding/opening stuf, and it works. so is it a bug ?
Finally found my error seams like turning off UseCanonicalName to off did the trick
I really think it's a bug now. It was definitively working last week, I just added content to the main host of my website, and now i can't acces it from port 80. If someone think it's not a bug or find someting missing/wrong in my conf file.
I am just struck in a situation of sharing internet connection with windows xp and fedora. the scenario is i'm connected to internet via wireless card in winxp system, i connected fedora and winxp through ethernet cards via cross over cable.
Now i shared the wireless connection in winxp by checking "allows other user to share this internet connection."
I have given ethernet adapter in windows xp an ip address"192.168.0.1/24"
I have given manually an ip address "192.168.0.2/24 with gateway 192.168.0.1" in fedora computer .
I have run the network setup wizard in winxp and name the workgroup as Mygroup then changed the smb.conf file as follows:
The probelm now is i can't able to get internet access in fedora i can able to ping fedora ip address from win xp. but in my network places ->workgroup computers there is nothing .
Actually i have to make one share folder on linux in such way that user should only read the documents from shared folder and they should not take prints of that folder.could any one telme what server i should use.?samba or nfs?how can i stop client users to stop taking prints from that shared folder.
Linux OS : Fedora 10 (No graphical mode)Windows OS : XP and Windows Server NT...I am able to access from my windows to linux using following step//fedora10 ip username of admin and password...I am able to view the admin and shared printer of fedora 10.When i try to enter in the admin folder i am not able to access it. It is giving error "Access is denied".
how to backup both the system and the data from my Red Hat Server to a share on a windows SBS server where the regular network backup will take it off-site every night. The Red Hat Server is basically a web server on the LAN using RAID 1 to ensure some redundancy in the discs and is used as an internal web server for an administration system.
The Windows SBS server is the domain controller and rest of the network is totally windows based. The SBS server has large discs which host all of the general data to be backed up and is controlled by a 3rd party IT company. We have a share created on the SBS Server which is to backup all of the information from the Red Hat box to ensure we can potentially restore the system quickly in case of a major problem.
The thorn here is that I am working on a different site to the Red Hat Box and have to do everything over SSH. the Red Hat server has Samba running but I have not used it to mount an external windows share? Is there an 'out of the box' backup software on the Red Hat server that I can control over ssh to do the job? The biggest worry for me is the backing up the system to a state where it can be popped on a disc and the system restored from the backup - or most of it anyway - enough to get the server back on its legs.
On the office we have a Firewall/VPN infrastructure. Everybody connects to internet trough an Access Point (Lynksys RWT120N), which, in turn, connects to a WatchWard/Firebox red box. I suppose this is the equipment that does the VPN stuff. Finally, the red box connects to a DSL modem from our ISP.The problem is: Everybody on the office can connect to the AP and surf the internet without any issues, excepting me when I connect with ubuntu 10.10. I have windows on the same machine and I can access the internet without problems.
What I have seen so far is that Network Manager associates with the AP, gets what I would consider all the expected information from DHCP, but internet connectivity is none.For "expected information from DHCP" i mean: IP address, gateway, and DNS.I can ping my assigned IP address, the gateway and even other machines in the same network. I cannot ping the DNS or other external IP addresses.
I am unable to share a folder on my Ubuntu 9.10 desktop machine. Networking is working, I can see and be seen by windows machines and also my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop. The laptop is able to share folders with no problem. The error message I get when I try to set sharing on a folder is "'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Memory allocation error."
I know there has been a thread relating to this in the past, but the solution there did not work for me, and I have been beating my head against the wall for a couple of weeks on this problem, and have spent a bit of time with smb.conf. I would hate to have to do a new install to fix this, after all this is not MS windows!Can anyone point me in the right direction?
i know it all sounds weard but ive been searching google so much now.. look the setup is kinda straight forward. We got a test server for websites. This server has lamp server configured. Now i have a Website in the apache www folder. From here on everything works fine in http://localhost or 127.0.1.1 etc etc. also i have configured virtualhosts. This so we can have a live enviroment but its actually a test enviroment.
Now i try to connect trough the lannetwork! so i goto my windows client and hit in the browser :http://(serverip+port) and also tried http://(serverip) When i do this i get a 403 forbiddin acces. I solved that problem by deleted a line in the apache2.conf wot was called : virtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xx: xx
Now Hes loading the page but says he cant connect to 127.0.1.1 Any1 knows a solution? (sorry for my bad grammer btw )
I'm quite new to ssh tunneling but I now want to make one of my machines at home accessible to my lan network here. I used the following command to make it available trough 127.0.0.1:5555(lo interface):
ssh -L 5555:192.168.0.15:80 email@example.com -N
now I want to make it available to eth0 on 192.168.1.40:5555 How do I do this?
I have two NIC, one is ethernet and second is via modem. On the eth0, most of no standard ports are blocked, so I need to connect to specified port on some IP, through ppp0 (modem), to use ssh connection on non standard port to that IP. For other ports on that IP and all other IPs I want to use eth0.
Every time I share a folder (using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop), the share is gone after I reboot. How can I make it a permanent share that persists?
Note: I used the gui to create the share (if that matters). Once I get the share permanent, the next thing I'll want to do is automatically mount it from another Ubuntu Desktop computer on the network.
Note: this will be a "peer to peer" network. I don't have Ubuntu Server and don't intend to get it. Just have two Ubuntu Desktop computers.
I'm trying to figure out a good way to access a folder within a Windows share from an Ubuntu 10.04 computer. I work at a school which uses a Windows network. Each class has one login and a folder for their work. All the folders are in one Windows share called //fses/class$. Each class does not have access to //fses/class$ (otherwise a student from one class would be able to access another class's folder) - they only have access to their own folder e.g. //fses/class$/3b.
When I try to access a class's folder from an Ubuntu computer I get an error that //fses/class$ cannot be accessed. I've got around it for the moment by using a teacher's credentials, but that's not ideal because then the students have access to other classes' work. I also tried using the 'mount' command e.g. sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=3b,password=**** //fses/class$/3b /media/3b
This did work (although I know it'd be better to use cifs and a credentials file), but only a 'superuser' can do it, and it mounts the folder for all users. I could also give the students superuser permission for the mount command, but this seems like giving them more permission than should really be necessary. Is there any way for a user who is not a superuser to access the folder? I'd like to use something like this. nautilus username=3b,password=**** smb://fses/class$/3b
