Fedora Networking :: Unable To Access Fedora 10 Shared Folder From Windows
Aug 17, 2009
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".
Installed Fedora 10 on my Downloader (just a name for the pc as its mainly used for torrent downloading) computer. But I cant access the fedora shared folder from my windows XP. Accessing XP shared folders from F10 is fine. I have another 2 computer where I have installed Ubuntu 8.10. I have no problem accessing either of the Ubuntu system from my XP computer. The F10 computer comes up fine on my Workgroup list of xp. I double click to go into the F10, a login window pops up and askes for username and password. I used the normal username and root / password to log in. But it keeps popping up for password again and again. BTW, Recently I Installed Win7 Beta on the Windows computer and Surprisingly I can access the Fedora 10 computer shared folder just fine from Win7. But I need to get it working under windows XP.
Here is my smb.conf file Code: # Global Settings [global] # Network Related Options # workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, e.g.: MIDEARTH # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field netbios name can be used to specify a server name not tied to the hostname. Interfaces lets you configure Samba to use multiple interfaces. If you have multiple network interfaces then you can list the ones. You want to listen on (never omit localhost). Hosts Allow/Hosts Deny lets you restrict who can connect, and you can specify it as a per share option as well
workgroup = THEMATRIX server string = Samba Server Version %v netbios name = MYSERVER ;interfaces = lo eth0 192.168.12.2/24 192.168.13.2/24 ;hosts allow = 127. 192.168.12. 192.168.13 .....
I installled it 2 weeks ago. How do I access the windows sharing from the fedora box. My windows network is on AD that runs on Win 2003 Server.? I can ping to the server, but how to access the sharing? I had look at the forum and some are very technical.
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 ..
My linux PC is connected at work and I was able to configure the IP to connect to the network. I need a way to access the linux computer from other windows PC in the office via shared folders and or remote desktop. I am stumbling upon "VNC" on google.
I use F10 at home and while away from work on my laptop. Recently I could get the VPN sorted out ( I can now connect to the vpn (ppp0) server at work from home or anywhere else). I am trying to mount a windows folder that is on the work server on my F10 box at home through the VPN connection that is first established.What I know about the windws server
servername sharename username password
When I try this
sudo mount -t cifs //pxxxx/home/abcd /mnt/dir/ -o username=abcd,password=xxxx
I get this error
mount error: could not resolve address for pxxxx: Name or service not known No ip address specified and hostname not found
I think the VPN connection is established successfully. I have a ppp0 connection under ifconfig with an IP address after vpn connection is established.In windows I just map the network drive (\pxxxxhome) username=abcd, password=xxxx and mount the folder as "abcd on pxxxxhome"
I mounted a shared windows folder from my LAN, and I changed the mount point's ownership on Linux using command line `chown me:me windir`. but when I enter the mount point, and to create files, it mentioned me 'Permission denied', but the file is actually created on the windows' folder, and its ownership is root:root. this problem puzzled my programs going to run on it. cause them will detect a system returned error, and terminate in a abnormal way.
Been using Ubuntu now almost 1 year and love it but I'm still mostly lost so I need someone to explain in great detail how to be able to access the My Documents folder on my LAN XP machine. I've been up and working fine for 6 or 8 months but all of the sudden (maybe it was an update package?) I get the following error message, after a long delay, when trying to access the shared folder:
Could not open location 'smb://office/my%20documents/'Failed to mount Windows share.I have set an icon on the top panel mapped to the XP machine and launched by launcher.
I've set up a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 32bit and shared specific folders on my Win7 PC. Everything should work okay as they both can see each other, but when I try on Ubuntu to access the Win7 shared folder it asks me for username and password. In Win7 I'm always logged in as Administrator with no password set and Ubuntu won't let me connect to it leaving the password blank. It just keeps asking for my username/password over and over again without any kind of error message. It doesn't come up with 'access denied' or anything, it just keeps refreshing the username/password login/connect gui so I can't say which side of the fence the problem is occurring on though I suspect it's on the Ubuntu side.
I have a Linux Box running Fedora 13, it has Samba installed, and I have configured it, I also have a Windoze 7 PC, I want to be able to access the Windoze PC's files from my Linux Box, and vice versa, but when I try to open the Windoze PC in the network on my Linux Box, it asks for my Username and Password, I enter them, the box goes away then pops back up asking for them again... and on the Windoze PC, I find my Linux on the network, open it, it asks for my username and password, I enter them, and it lets me in, but then when I try opening my shared folder, it gives me: "You do not have permission to access \LINUX Shared Folder. Contact your network administrator to request access".
I have created a shared folder via nautilus. I can not access it, because it asks me for user name and password again and again. I'm sure both username and password are exactly right. But I can not access the folder. Only when I check "Allow guest user access" it will allow me to access my data, Which is not secure enough for me.
I've a question about a connection to a shared folder on a pc behind an ubuntu 10.04 server. The Ubuntu machine itself is behind a Cisco router. Cisco router has a nat 1-to-1 to Ubuntu machine with the static public ip x.y.x.z The Ubuntu machine has one only interfaces eth0 bridged with a virtual tap0 in the virtual br0 interface. This because on the Ubuntu machine is running OpenVPN in bridged mode. I want to reach a private share on the host 192.168.100.2 using the x.y.w.z static IP. Is that possibile? Ubuntu machine has no firewall running (I was not able to run shorewall firewall for now).
I am trying to set up printing on my Fedora 14 laptop, on my home network.
- Home network, single subnet, the desktops are connected to the switch portion of my Linksys via Ethernet and all have static addresses. Name resolution between them is via hosts file entries. The router is running wireless (WPA2/AES/DHCP) to accommodate my laptop which is dual boot XP Pro and Linux Fedora 14.
- The printer is an HP Deskjet F4180 printer. It is attached via USB to a Windows XP Pro box and shared. The XP box is wired and static ip.
- I am able to see all the shares and print to the shared printer from any of the Windows boxes, wired and wireless, including my laptop when I run Windows on it.
- My Fedora 14 is working fine on wireless, using Network Manager and KDE desktop. I am able to access all the Windows shares on both of my wired desktops. One desktop is XP Pro, the other is Windows 7.
This is what happens when I try to set up printing on Fedora:
- I go to Administration / Printing and click to Add a Printer. - I am prompted for the root password twice, which I put in. - I select Network Printer / Windows printer via samba and click on Browse... - It finds my WORKGROOUP and machine name mig29 and prompts for user ID and password which I type in.
the user ID and logon on Fedora is different from the one on Windows. During setup I am prompted for credentials. It seems to me that somewhere down the line Fedora supplies not the credentials I supply but my local user ID and password and it obviously fails.
I successfully installed Samba, but have problem with access to any shared folder on my secondary drive. If I try access secondary drive with admin user, everything is fine. If with another account try to access via samba to shared folder on partition with Ubuntu, everything is fine again. Every folder has set privileges to read&write to everyone, so shouldn't be problem here.
I have a Belkin router with an external HDD attached to it through the USB port on the router. Every time I try to access it, I get a popup asking for the username, domain name, and password. I have no idea how to gain access to it in Fedora. I can access it fine with windows XP and 7, but get the login screen when using Fedora. I can access my shared files on the xp machine just fine with fedora, but not the external on the router. Do I need to do some extra configuring with samba to get it to work? What is my domain password anyway, I don't ever remember setting one up? Is there a way to find out and just plug it in when the login screen pops up? I am clueless, I tried searching, but everything I come up with involves vpn, which I am not using. If it helps, I sometimes get a similar login screen in windows as well, usually when I first log into either my xp machine or my 7. Its not every time I log in, but it does occasionally happen, I have no idea why. Networking is just not my forte. What I do to get around it is go into a file browser and type in the network location (\192.168.1.1FreeAgent Drive). Once I have done this I can can access the drive by clicking on the map I created in 'My Computer'.
I can't access my home folder using nautilus ( and everything that using gui), but I easily can access to subfolders e.g. "Music", "Downloads" and others. What can cause this trouble? Also I can retrieve directory listing using terminal.
I installed ubuntu in a desktop pc and without configuring anything i had my network working: 1 windows 7 pc which is sharing a folder with other 3 windows pc and with my ubuntu pc. Yesterday as every day before i entered into win7 shared folder from ubuntu but it asked me for a password which was not set up in win7 pc.
I want to share folder in fedora 12 so that any windows user can access my folder (without modifying its content) and there should be no password to be entered by the windows user. I tried samba gui but the folder does not open using windows.
Currently I am using HP NAS box and we have installed HP Storage Works storage Mirroring on NAS for Replication. Windows 2008 is installed on this NAS box. I have shared a directory as NFS share on this NAS box and allow anonymous read and write access to all machines. I want to mount and access this NFS share directory on one LINUX machine and this Linux machine has Redhat 5.3 Enterprise edition.
1.The issue I am facing here is, I can mount the NFS share on my Linux machine successfully but I can not do read/write on this NFS share. Whenever I try to access this mounted NFS share, I always get error Permission denied. I can do any read/write operation on this mount point. Please provide the inputs to resolve this issue.
2.How do I mount NFS share with user credential and password? Can I share a directory as NFS share with user credential which I can use when I mount the share? 3.Is there any other way to access NFS share by using user authentication and password?
I have just got my network to work on Fedora, and now I have run into an new problem... I can't access any shared files or printers. The computer that has the printer and the files I want to access runs windows XP Home edition, and when I boot into XP on my machine, I can access the files and printer. Can this be fixed, or is Fedora incompatable with Windows XP in this case?
I have been having off and on issues with my samba file shares. I am sharing a NTFS formated hard drive where the mount point is in my home directory, as well as a printer connected via USB. I am to the point where printing works (using it as an ipp print share, samba is configured for it, but I don't know if it works or not), and I can access the shared folder from Windows, but I can't access the shared folder from any Ubuntu machine. I get the error:
When I first start up my 2 computers once the network is established if I try to acces the Ubuntu shared folders from the Win XP machine I get this error:"\localhost not accessible. You might not have permission to usethis network resource.t the administrator of this server to findout if you have access permissions.You were not connected because aduplicate name exits on the network. Go to System in Control Panel tochange the computer name and try again."If I first access the Windows shared files and then go back to the Win machine I get the password prompt and all is well
I have two computers running Ubuntu 9.10, both have one shared folder. These were set up via Nautilus.
On computer 1 I can see and use the shared folder of computer 2 just fine.
On computer 2 I can NOT see the shared folder of computer 1 anymore since recently. I has worked in the past.
Some more information: the name of computer 1 is "daniel", the share name is "gedeeld". So the address of the shared folder of computer 1 would be smb://daniel/gedeeld/ Opening this address in Nautilus works fine on computer 1 (that shares the folder), but results in an error on computer 2.
Error: failed to mount Windows share. Please select another viewer and try again.
