I have a netbook running Fedora 12 and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it to connect to my WHS. For my netbook its not that big of a deal, but what I really need it for is my soon to be music computer. It will be running F13, and mainly be for playing music stored on my WHS. how to get to my WHS shares?
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'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 188.8.131.52 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?
I'm trying to connect to the other computers on the network in my house, but, when I try to view the main file folders it tells me "unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share" I've looked everywhere I can think of and have done everything they've told me to do, and I still can't get it to work.
I am trying to share files between my Windows XP machine and ubuntu server. I set up and configured samba following the instructions in the Online Ubuntu Server Guide. [URL] This is the abbreviated version of my smb.conf file here.
[global] workgroup = HOME server string = %h server interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.1.101/24 # map to guest = Bad User
I was going to freshly format my laptop with Windows 7 x86_64 and Lucid Lynx x86_x64... I have a HUGE amount of media (music, videos, pictures, documents) and I don't keep all of it on my external harddrive.
The plan is to have the basic 2 partitions for Windows 7 and Ubuntu but I would like to have a 3rd partition that is just for media that I could share between the two OSes. I guess I would create symbolic links in the Ubuntu Home folder to point to the partition with media and in Windows I could probably just add those folders to libraries (unless someone knows how to move the User folder to another parition?)
What should I format this new partition as? NTFS? It needs to support files larger than 4GB and Windows can't read/write to basically anything.
I am having difficulty connecting to a PC that runs Windows 7 (and suffice it to say Windows XP as well). I go to Places > Connect to Server and choose Windows share from the drop-down list. I enter in the computer's IP address in the Server field and click Connect, when I'm brought to the "Password required for x" screen (x being the IP address). I enter my username for the Windows machine, leave the Domain field as is (it is WORKGROUP by default, which is the Workgroup name for both PCs), and then I enter my Windows password. The dialog keeps popping up as if I entered incorrect credentials. I do want to point out, on the dialog, it asks for a Domain name. Since I do not have this computer connected to a domain (I'm at home), it is a workgroup network. However, prior to Ubuntu 10.10, I was able to use this method to connect to Windows computers.
A few days ago I got this Ubuntu box (9.10) to connect to the Windows network in our house. Sharing printers and files. Life was good. But today, Places > Network > Workgroup tries to connect for about a minute then I get a "Unable to mount locations, Failed to retrieve share list from server" error. The only thing I recall changing at around the same time was adding Wine.
if i try to connect to my samba server ( share ) from my windows xp ( or vista, i've tried both ) it says, that the network share cannot be found. i've installed all necessary rpms on my fedora 10, necessary for running a samba server:
For some reason, my latest Fedora 11 install + yum update does not seem to have the option to connect to a Windows Share in the drop down list when I select Connect to Share. I'm using gnome.Does anyone have any ideas which packages provide this functionality.
I'm trying to mount a Windows Server 2003 share in Fedora 13. With Fedora 8 and with RHEL 5.5 this works properly, but not with Fedora 13.
The mount point I'm using is /usr/eg
The symptoms are: Nautilus (the file browser) does not display the mount in the places or tree as a mounted drive. Using the file broser I can browse under file system down to the files on the server Programs cannot find the files under /usr/eg ie the files on the server.
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 .
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:
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
I am trying to share my printer with a windows xp machine.Samber server and configuration tool is installed. Still I have no clue how to get this to work. The printer is setup and working on my Fedora desktop.as anyone done this before and can give a step by step description on how to setup a Linux printer on a network (home-network) with windows.I already searched for it but non of the tutorial were clear enough or missing something.
I want shared folders and files between my desktop (Windows 7) and my notebook (Fedora 12). I installed with YUM the server SAMBA and configured all according this tutorial (http://www.ubuntu-es.org/?q=node/130156) also configured the firewall with Firestarter, allow all entries for the HOST.
The problem is that in windows I can not enter to notebook or by network interface or by ip address. and viceversa.There is another option for sharing files, or what I do?
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.
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?
he moved in a new place and there is a huge share on the network machine which runs windows... however he has fedora 10 installed on a desktop pc with a big screen and asked me to configure it so it can access the share... i have almost no experience with fedora and i've been trying to do this for two days now... i installed the samba package, but now what? how to do this because the exact commands are unknown to me... i have the root password and everything else on the network... so i just need to know what ot write in order to be able to mount all the TBs of information on the server...
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?
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?
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.
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.
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 .
Since I installed fedora on my desktop (there is no other OS on my desktop computer at the moment) I can't connect to my laptop which has Windows XP installed on it, although I can normally connect to internet from both computers. Here is the drawing to illustrate how everything is connected:
On the picture you can see that the phone line goes to the ADSL modem. The ADSL modem is connected to the Wireless modem with LAN cable. Wireless modem is connected to my desktop computer with LAN cable, and trough the wireless connection to the laptop. Internet is working fine for both computers, but desktop can't see laptop and vice versa. What do I need to do in order to see the laptop?
share an external USB NTFS drive on my home network. The drive is attached to my desktop box running Debian Lenny. It's accessible on the desktop. I have a directory on the drive that I would like to make accessible to a Windows XP laptop. Read-only would be fine. The laptop has wireless access to the network.
Want to share windows partitions (FAT) mounted on an Ubuntu server from an Ubuntu client, over a wireless connection in a small home network. Succeeded mounting linux ahares from client but not the windows shares (I get what sounds like permissions errors). All shares are served by Samba, all have user accounts and passwords. smbclient and smbmount have been used on the client to attempt to mount the shares. Both machines are dual boot, and I'm able to share and print over the network with XP running on both machines.
OS: both machines: Lucid Lynx Client: Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop Server: a Medion (german company) cheapo desktop.
I got 9.10 on by laptop and xp on other computer. Installed samba server and xp recognized my laptop but not anything I share on ubuntu. am i missing something in samba config file? Im trying to share home directory on ubuntu and both systems have the same login id.
