Fedora Networking :: Network Share Windows Vista And 12 ?

Jan 27, 2010

I have installed Samba on my one of my computers that has Fedora 12 installed 192.168.1.2, and the other PC that has Windows Vista installed 192.168.1.3 Hostname Adam-PC Network: WORKGROUP. Both PCs are connected to Wireless Netgear Router with DHCP enabled on the router as well as the two computers. How do I set up File sharing on these two systems?

Fedora Networking :: Vista / Fedora 13 - Can't See Box In Windows Network

Oct 19, 2010

I recently bought a new Netgear WNDR3300 Wireless-N router, and cannot seem to see the linux box in my windows network. (We have multiple Windows machines on my network, all in the same workgroup.) I also recently bought Avast anti-virus, and I think I have enabled the IP range of all computers to enable communication. I wonder if a media router has different needs than just the regular router I used to use. My samba file is minimal, I will post an example. I wish my Windows computer to access a drive marked /terminal on my linux box. I have a drive on my Windows marked E:Cher on my Vista box. My workgroup name is BRCR.

Fedora Networking :: Network Share Files With Windows ?

Sep 1, 2011

I am trying to both access files shared by Windows machines on my network, and I also want to share files on my Fedora 15 box. In Nautilus, if I choose the 'Browse Network' option on the left toolbar, I am shown a Windows Network icon. If I try to double click this, I am given an "Unable to mount location" error. Does anyone know why this is and how to fix it? Further, where is the GNOME 3 option to right click and choose to share a folder? Both KDE 4.5/4.6 and older versions of GNOME (at least on Ubuntu) had this. Is there a way to share files this way, and if not, is there some workaround?

Fedora Networking :: Can't Search Or Connect To A Share On The Vista Machine?

I followed mjmwired's setup instructions of samba and it WAS working. Saw the share and the printer on the linux box. Move files from the linux machine to Vista machine without problems. I can get the share on my linux box using the linux machine.

I can not not search or connect to a share on the Vista machine from the Linux machine.It seems like there is something that has changed on the Vista machine.

Fedora Networking :: Internet Lag And Windows Network "failed To Retrieve Share List From Server"?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 and when I'm surfing the web, it seems to lag in between pages. I don't think its my net connection, I just wiped windows 7 off my system for Fedora and it did not suffer from the same lag issues.I've tried adding in google's alternate dns server 8.8.8.8 but it didn't seem to fix the issue. I ran into this issue a couple years back on Ubuntu 8.1 or something like that, and I never could find out what I needed to configure.My second problem is that when I try to connect to other Windows systems on my wlan or wired connection, it gives the error "failed to retrieve share list from server". I'm not experienced in networking, can someone explain this to me?

May 29, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and would like to share this computer on my windows network. I understand that Samba is the way to go, but how do I configure linux with Samba so I can share files and printers? I am able to see my windows computers (vista and xp) but I am not able to see the linux computer with those machines plus I would like to change the network name of the linux machine if possible. Please any help and information will be much appreciated. Eventually I would like to server a printer from this linux machine to the other windows machines.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Windows Network Share Folders

Feb 16, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 since 2-3 weeks. First I tried live CD and the OS seems to be very good. So i installed it on my laptop.So far i had no problems until I tried to access the shared network folders of my Server running on MS Windows Vista and another trial PC running WindowsXP. I'm trying to solve this since 2-3 days, I haven't found a solution.1st of all my network works fine. All computers can ping each other and as the laptop had Windows XP installed the server was accessable.1st I installed the SMB4k tool with this program. I could see the computer names, but as soon as I select a Windows computer the tool searches and nothing happens.

I tried a lot of different variations of this command but in the end I receive this kind of error. I also tried to add -o user=username pass=password, nothing changed.After this I searched information about this error, some forum threads I googled are telling the SMB4K tool modifies the /etc/sudoers file and cause this error. So i tried to change it back with some kind of sudo chmod 0640 etc/sudoers but this won't work it seems I can not modify or edit thisw file using sudo.With the pyNeighbourhood tool I could only see my Laptop but not the Windows PCs.At the end I will install Linux systems on all of my PCs, but only if all my tests will pass .

Server :: Unable To Access Samba Share On CentOS 5.4 From Windows XP Or Vista

Jan 23, 2010

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

Fedora Installation :: Dual Booting Vista And / 11 Wipes Out Windows Vista?

Nov 18, 2009

i have recently started my masters degree program and i have to install fedora 11 for one of my courses. The problem is when i try to install fedora 11 on my laptop, it wipes out my windows vista installation. I want to keep vista. I have a sony vaio laptop model VGN-FW340D. 4GB RAM and 400 GB HD. i first shrink my hard drive to free up around 100 GB. Then i run fedora 11 DVD and let it make the partitions on my free space.. I have tried everything.. I chose use free space the first time, but i didnt work, it wiped out my vista, next time i chose custom layout and defined boot, root and swap partitions , but again it wiped out my vista.. I have read many guides to dual boot vista and fedora and have carried them out step by step, but nothing works.... Also i dont have vista installation DVD, i just have the recovery CDs, so everytime it wipes out my vista, i have to do system recovery, ive been trying for a week now, and its driving me crazy, i asked a friend of mine to help me out, he has dual boot system, and he tried it and it did the same thing, wiped out my vista... i just have one drive C: with two partitions, one small partitions which contains recovery files, and the rest of the partition has vista.......

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Use Network When Hibernate The Vista

Nov 6, 2010

I just installed FEDORA 14 on my PC which already had Vista. I am able to dual boot through the GRUB boot loader. I am facing an issue where wired network in FEDORA stops working if I hibernate Vista. I really would like to be able to hibernate both to quicken the startup times.

Here are the steps:

1. Boot to Fedora (everything works fine including wired network)

2. Hibernate Fedora

3. Boot to Vista (everything works fine including networking)

4. Hibernate Vista

5. Boot to Fedora. It loads up fine, but wired network status icon keeps spinning and then results in a kernel package crash. I already reported the crash to Fedora.

6. Hibernate Fedora and boot to Vista (Vista resumes fine from hibernation and everything works in Vista including networking).

Is Fedora supposed to work when both Fedora and Vista are hibernated in a dual boot PC?If I shut down Vista, and then resume Fedora, networking works fine. So there is something in Vista hibernation that causes Fedora networking to fail. This issue remains even if Fedora is restarted (not hibernate/resume).

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Share Printer Between Kubuntu And Vista

Feb 2, 2010

Is there someone out there that makes something simple that you can network and share a printer between Kubuntu and Vista? I have my office computer running Kubuntu, which also has the printer attached to it. My media machine downstairs is running Vista, which I'd like to be able to print and share files from. I've been doing some reading that you need to use Samba. So, I installed Samba through Synaptic, and it appears that nothing happened. So, I did some more googling, and found I had to install something about system-config-samba, so I did.

I now have a Samba icon under k-menu > System > Samba. However, when I click on this icon, nothing happens. It does nothing (just like clicking on the Network Manager icon, which does nothing as well). So, I am now utterly confused. Is there a way to change samba settings via gui? I'm not comfortable with typing unknown commands into the terminal, as usually there is no explanation as to what's going on. If there was a step by step explanation, that would be ok, but as of now, there is nothing. Is there a simple setup tool out there?

Fedora Networking :: Mounting A Windows Share In FC 10

Jun 12, 2009

Usually you put external mounts in the /mnt folder, then link there with a symbolic link if you want access from somewhere else. By keeping all of your mounts in /mnt its easier to manage them as your system and ability grow.

You need to make mounts as root. Mounts take the data in the target and put it on top of an existing folder. When you mount something on top of a folder whatever was there becomes invisible until you remove the mount on top of it. If there is a problem with a mount and it does not work, any writes to the mount will go to the folder underneath, and any data you expect to read from there will not exist.

In making a mount you should realize that the char requires an escape char in bash to show up in the final output to the command. The escape char is also . Therefore to show \ in a Windows command, you need to type \\. Also, spaces must be escaped once with .

Howto:

You should substitute your ip or name for 10.10.9.5

Reminders: Make sure your Windows folder is shared read/write if you need to write to it.

You probably want to change permissions on /mnt/WindowsDocuments to 777

Tips:If you want a link from your desktop to your Windows "My Documents" folder you can now do this:

$cd ~/Desktop ln -s /mnt/WindowsDocuments WindowsDocs

This will make a symbolic link to /mnt/Windows, and if you execute: ls -l ~/Desktop you should see the links information in the response

Finally, if you want to keep a local backup of what's on the windows box in a local folder you could do:

The ~ char is shorthand for /home/<uername> and represents your home folder.

The result of the rsync command is to make a copy of WindowsDocs (which points to your mount at /mnt/WindowsDocuments which is linked to your Windows machine shared 'My Documents' folder) and put it into ~/WindowsDocumentsBackup

As always, make use of the man command if you get confused or the info command for more detail. ie man rsync

Fedora Networking :: How To Connect To Windows Share?

Mar 27, 2011

I'm running Fedora 13 on my laptop and am trying to share out a folder from a Win7 computer. Folder on Win7 machine is set to allow access to everyone.In Fedora, I have SELinux disable, I've made sure samba is allowed in the firewall, and that the smb service is running. There's no password on the Win7 computer, so in the Windows Share setting on Fedora I just put the username and left the pass field blank.

I've seen some things say all you have to do is go the the "Network" place...but somehow that seems to have become non-existent and I don't know how to get it back.Also, trying to connect to smb://WinShare/Share results in it saying that the server has timed out.

Fedora Networking :: How To Share Hard Drive On Network

Jun 18, 2010

I read somewhere that I can use samba to do this. But in all honesty I have no idea what I am doing. What would be the best way to share this drive? Also understand, I know little about networking.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Share A Folder On Samba Network?

Jul 12, 2011

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

[Code]...

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

Fedora Networking :: Mounting Windows Share With Cifs?

Feb 10, 2009

Following instructions that I received from the Fedora 10 Guide, I recently edited my etc/fstab file so that I could auto mount my Windows share. It worked the first time, but when I rebooted, I noticed an error saying that Linux could not not unmount the cifs shares. Eventually it did reboot, but now I cannot mount the share at all from fstab. When I run the command #mount -a and then #mount, my share is shown to be mounted although I cannot access it and there is no link to it on the desktop like there was the first time it mounted. I basically want my Windows share to be permanently mounted with read/write permissions. My Distro is Fedora Core 10 64 bit. How can I resolve this issue?

Fedora Networking :: Trying To Access Restricted Windows Share From Fedora

Dec 27, 2009

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.

Fedora Networking :: Easily Share A Folder With A Windows Computer In 15?

Jun 18, 2011

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.
