Fedora Networking :: Unknown Samba Password - Use Samba For File Sharing Like On A Windows Home Network
Jul 17, 2010
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
I am using ubuntu 10.04 .I tried to share my files on windows network using samba , I changed theworkgroup name in samba configuration file ..but it dint work for me will you please tell me the exact procedure to share the files on windows network ..
I'm on Debian Lenny. I've shared a folder on gnome GUI, then went to win 7. I see my machine, SERVDEB01. When I click on it, I get the login popup. The workgroup set in samba is FILE-SHARING, so I login with the following: FILE-SHARINGmyuser password and that's when I get the unknown username or bad password thing.
I had a look to /etc/samba/smb/conf security = user is uncommented the shared folder appears at the end of the config file In despair, I've also created an identical user on win 7 and the linux box. I've been into the security Local Policies of windows 7 set NTLM to LM and NTLM (instead of NTLMv2) Here's my smb.conf in case it's needed.
Iam trying to get samba work with no password on my home network. I want to have Writeble permissions for creating files and folders and sub folders in the shared folder with no password needed.
I have this set up
Code: # # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # # # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
I can access the /home/seb/ directory but cant write in it. And with the same permissions for the down directory I cant even access the folder from the other pc it only says "Could not display "smb://laptop/down".The file is of an unknown type"
And finally how can I clean up the smb.conf so it is readable?
I'm using [URL] to help set up my server for windows file sharing. I accedently pressed unix file sharing and now i can switch it to windows file sharing.it would be fine to uninstall the Unix file sharing and replace it with the windows counterpart.I have Ubuntu desktop 10.04 (because i keep getting an error with the kernel with the server editions)
I just installed a CentOs 5.2 Linux server and I'm trying to configure Samba. The file names of files created from the windows workstation are ok, but the file names of files created from the Linux server appear with different names than them are supposed to have. I've checked the Samba configuration file but I can't find options for fixing this trouble. Samba version 3.033375
I am running OpenSuse 11. It runs Apache webserver and Samba for filesharing. I am also running webmin. Everything works 100%. I have 2 shared folders that can be accessed by everyone. My question is how can I log in to the shared folder from a windows machine when I set the permissions for only a certain user to log in. My system hostname is Linux.site and my user is henk. I am not sure how I need to log in that way. Should the username be Linux.sitehenk ...
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
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?
I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server. Two users: chris and gretchen Directory to share: Music Music resides in chris' home folder.
I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:
Created user accounts for each Created Samba accounts with passwords for each Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it Assigned the family group to the Music folder. Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.
chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.
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.
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
I'm looking for an easy guide to connect to my home network with Fedora 12. So far I did what I thought was pretty straight forward but I'm not seeing any computers. Here is what I've done
yum install samba restart system settings -> advanced -> samba
I set up my two paths that I wanted to be shared when I go to network in Dolphin I'm seeing Network, Network Services and Samba Shares If I click on Network nothing shows, same with Network services, samba shares shows nothing and the bottom reads "unable to find any workgroups on your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall"
There are two workgroups which my Ubuntu machine shows fine, workgroup and mshome, I can connect to my roomates and my girlfriends computer no problem within Ubuntu (they are running XP, Vista and Ubuntu).
I installed SLES 10.2 with SAMBA 188.8.131.52 to retire our old Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and save some money. All was fine until last week when our chief asked to me to set password expiration for all clients. This morning, all users cannot logon because, when they logon, windows asks to change password and then it gives error error "Access Denied".
I've used Samba for several years and when it works it's great. Unfortunately from time to time it seems to get messed up and either all the 7 machines on my home network can't be seen or I can't access the shares on some. I have 2 Windows XP computers 4 Kubuntu and one Linux Mint KDE, all the latest versions. I'd rather not plough through all the documentation for Samba, but would really like a "model" smb.conf with a few comments about parts that might have legitimate variants. I have researched this with Google searches many times but have failed to find the information I need in concise form.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to install a printer over the network which is plugged into a Windows 7 machine. I can see the workgroup fine and the computer fine on the network, but when I try to double-click on the computer (both via the nautilus and the printer setup route), it asks me for a username, workgroup and password.
I tried the account's username and password and username "Guest" with no password but neither worked. The weird thing is that when I booted my machine into Windows XP and tried to install the same printer, it never asked me for a username and password and installed just fine. Why is Samba/Ubuntu asking me for the Windows 7 password when Windows XP didn't need it?
I have just configured samba and it is working fine, the only problem that i have face when i go to access some sharing on samba server it asking me about password but the problem is that its username option is embossed. By default it will login as guest but i dont know the guest password.
Its an absolute failure for me. No matter how i try, i cannot see my samba-shared folders in a Fedora machine from another Fedora machine. Both has FC15 installed, networked through WiFi. Tried everything from this forum, (install samba, start samba service, configure samba) but cannot see my shared folder. In Windows it works fine (I can see my WIndows shares from a Fedora laptop, but i cannot see my Fedora shares from a Feroda laptop. Why it is always so difficult to have a simple facility in Linux?
I have just installed Ubuntu desktop and I am using this pc as a file server. I have already installed Samba and have it operational and viewable by my windows computers. Now the problem is that I have 2 hard drives and the way that I have Samba set up it is sharing my home directory which is wonderful but my windows computers do not have access to the second hard drive. I search for several hours this morning trying to figure out how to do this but cannot figure it out.
I have just started a job as an IT tech, and have inherited a linux server running CEntOS 5.3 -- I have some experiance with linux, but am a little at sea. I'm using Webmin 1.490.The main use of the server is to samba share file space to windows clients, running XP.Everyone can happily connect to their home share, however the other shares have problems. One of the shares "staff" fails intermittently (to some staff members) and some of the other shares fail always.
The failure is that when a user tries to connect to the share, it pops up a username and password dialog (even if they just successfully viewed their home dir) then on entering correct details and clicking ok, the box refreshes with <domain><user name> (where braced values are replaced by literal values). If a user is connecting from outside via vpn (hosted though a different department's server) the domain is replaced by their computer name.If the password is re-entered, the same happens, in an infinite loop, and no access is ever given.When I say the staff share is intermittent, there likely is some pattern, but I haven't been able to work it out yet -- I think it may have something to do with how recently the account was set up, or physical location.
