Fedora Servers :: Cannot Connect Win7 And Mac0S 10.6 Computers To Samba Share
Jan 3, 2010
I just recently constructed a computer to create a nice Fedora Linux server to replace a Mac Mini server that I have been using for a few years. I'm attempting to create a Samba share for my machines, a Windoze 7 machine as well as a couple MacOS 10.6 machines. I've set up Samba, started the service, allowed Samba in the firewall, and used system-config-samba to set up a share with a user. I created a User called "space", and a share /media/peliculas/Movies (a mounted hard drive). When I type in \IP_ADDRESS in the address bar in windows 7, I get the option to log in. I log in correctly and I see two directories "space" and "Movies." Unfortunately when I click on one of them I get the following error message:
Windows cannot access \IP_ADDRESSMovies Check the spelling of the name. Otherwize, there might be a problem with your network. To try and identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. I also get something similar when I attempt to connect with my mac machine. Using "Connect to Server" I type in: smb:\IP_ADDRESS, and login, I have the option to mount "Movies" or "space." If I select any of these, I get the following error message: There was an error connecting to the server "IP_ADDRESS." Check the server name or IP addres, and then try again. If you are unable to resolve the problem contact your system administrator.
Also, if I type 'smbclient -U space -L IP_ADDRESS' I can see the "Movies" in the "Sharename." At this point I'm not sure what else to do, and have been trying to figure this out for the last few days (losing sleep due to being baffled). The only thing that I can think of is that I have something wrong with the smb.conf file. Here is what it currently displays:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server Version %v
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
One last thing, when I check the log files, there are error messages that state: smbd/service.c:1009(make_connection_snum) '/home/space' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [peliculas] Error was Permission denied --Windoze 7 and MacOS 10.6 log files
I have a samba share setup as the following. When I browse to it from PC's added to my AD domain, they connect instantly. When i browse to it from a laptop that's not part of the domain, i get prompted for login credentials. what credentials should I be putting in? I can't seem to figure it out. or is it because i have the workgroup set to what my AD domain name is, and the laptops aren't part of that domain.
path = /data/photos browseable = yes force user = pictures force group = picturesgroup
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:
why cant I access samba share by short-hostname from win7.when I ping short-hostname, the answer is the actual ip and short-hostname.mydomain.com pinging short-hostname does work, but accessing it from start-run does not! accessing by ip or short-hostname.mydomain.com works fine.ssh by short-hostname from win7 works fine too.
I have two Ubuntu 10.10 computers and two Windows XP computers connected to my network. I cannot share files between the Ubuntu computers using samba. I keep getting the "Unable to Mount Location Failed to mount Windows share" error. I've tried the solutions posted by dmizer here and nothing works.Random true facts:I can successfully connect to folders shared on my Windows XP computers from either windows computer.I can successfully connect to folders shared on my Windows XP computers from either ubuntu computers.Neither of my windows computers cannot connect to folders shared on either ubuntu computer.Neither ubuntu computer can connect to folders shared by the other ubuntu computer.I REALLY need to get samba to work since I have other Windows computers on my network.
i'm trying to automount a samba share on computers startup, everything works just fine when the network adapter is controled by traditional way ifup but when i'm switching to NetworkManager doesn't work anyway. i'm hiding the share information from the common user by using the /etc/samba/cifstab as i read on intrernet, in the cifstab i put //server/share /home/user/share cifs sername=user,password=pass,uid=1000,_netdev .could anybody give me a hint or tell me where to look?
After upgrading my ubuntu server from 9.04 to 10.04, the window computers couldn't resolve samba shared names anymore, the error code displayed by Windows was 0x80070035.
I was using the ubuntu server as a samba server, using 'share' as the security authentication method, it has been working very well under previous ubuntu versions but, after upgrading to 10.04, the windows computers can't access the server shares anymore; the linux computers don't have any problems (I can access the shares from linux).
As a workaround, I've added the name of the server in c:windowssystem32driversetchosts; but I'd like to know how to fix the problem without modifying every windows computer.
so i found an older computer i want to play with as a file server. ubuntu server edition, installed gnome GUI (to make things easier for now, i plan on removing it later) and used [URL].. to configure my 1.5tb harddrive so my windows machines can access it. i had everything working but than a fatal crash made me start from scratch (os and all) now i am unable to access the samba share from a machine running windows 7, but i can access it from a machine running windows XP using the same login and password i set up for windows 7.this makes me believe it's a problem with windows 7 and not samba.
I have a server which currently has a samba share for a printer and my home directory. Both have been working fine for a while now. I have a drobo (which is like a little USB RAID machine) connect via USB to the linux box. While trying to share it via samba I get weird messages from my windows machine (see screenshot). I have tried to share multiple folders on this drobo and no luck, all the same result.
I also tried a symbolic link, no good.
Here is a screen shot http://aivila.com/temp/screen.jpg Here is my smb.conf file: Code: [home] path = /home/savona read only = no
How can I set permissions for users within the share? Example: I have a share called Programming and some user can create folders within it most others can not, can read the documents. How do I set permissions?
I don't think it has anything to do with the config file. More to do with SElinux. I need to know how to configure SElinux so I can see my samba share when SELinux is on. When I setenforce 0 I can seen all the files and folders set it to setenforce 1 cannot see anything.
Here is the output when I ran [root@fileserver /]# getsebool -a | grep smb allow_smbd_anon_write --> on smbd_disable_trans --> on
These two options were off I tried turning them on.
This is another one of the commands I tried running. I did change a few options but I am not sure which I do need to change. I am running a stand alone server so I don't need the DC option.
[root@fileserver /]# getsebool -a | grep samba samba_domain_controller --> off samba_enable_home_dirs --> off samba_export_all_ro --> on samba_export_all_rw --> off samba_share_nfs --> off use_samba_home_dirs --> on
My Fedora router has three nic's, one for the internet, one for lan and one for the wireless network, which uses hostapd. I have set up samba in order to enable windows file sharing from wireless lan to wired lan. Using the samba documentation I have enabled the wins server and wins proxy which should allow met to browse the shares across the networks, which theoretically should do the trick but it doesn't work as expected. I can see the pc's from the other network using windows neighbourhood, but as soon as I access one of them it fails saying that "network path could not be found" or something like this. Tried using windows 7, windows xp and linux for browsing but the result is the same. As firewall I have shorewall and the samba specific ports are enabled for both networks. How to setup samba for inter-network browsing?
I have attached the global config section from smb.conf file: Code: [global] server string = Samba Server interfaces = eth1, lo, wlan0 bind interfaces only = Yes security = SHARE log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log max log size = 50 .....
My Ubuntu Desktop (9.10, 64-bit) VM can't connect to my Windows 7 (64-bit, Ultimate) File Share using Nautilus. I enter "smb://<comuterName>" in the address bar and then it comes up with a password dialog (see screenshot) and then after entering the correct login info, the dialog disappears for a second or two but then reappears again. The dialog always comes back up and the share is never mounted. Connecting from an XP box on the network to the windows 7 share works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine to the windows 7 share using the appropriate 'smbmount' command works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine (using the nautilus GUI) to the XP box (password protected) works just fine. Then I turned off password protection in Win7, rebooted the win7 machine, and still all of the above tests turned out the same. And the Ubuntu machine still doesn't connect to the windows share using the nautilus GUI, and still displays the password dialog even though no password is required anymore. I tried using smbclient to view the shares, here is the output (not sure if I should be trying something else using the smbclient program):eddie@eddie-ubuntu:~$ smbclient -L eddie-win7 Enter eddie's password: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
I'd like to know how to connect Ubuntu to the windows 7 share using the nautilus GUI. If it's a bug, I'd like to file it (I think it is). But first I would like some direction trouble-shooting to make sure it is in fact a bug. (I think I read elsewhere on this forum that someone connected Karmic to win7 share, so maybe it's not a reproducible bug. But then again, maybe they weren't using 64-bit Karmic...)
I have a share on my home server with all my music in. When I go to a windows PC (Windows 7) and go to network I can see the share, but when I try to connect in ubuntu by going to places>network>windows network. I get the error: "Unable to connect. Failed to retrieve share list from server". However when I try the connect to server option and specify the IP address its fine. I have tried this with the firewall disabled with the same results. I am trying to get my family to use ubuntu and I don't want them to have tp specify an IP address.
I've got my Samba shares up and running. I can stream files from the server, I can create files on the server, and I can copy files from the server.
Running a Windows program (from a Windows box) directly from the Samba server, however, is turning into a nightmare. I'm getting Access is Denied errors from the Windows box, yet I can copy/create/etc from the entire directory with no problems.
Are there any special permissions I need to run EXE files from a Windows box, located on a Samba share? I've already chmod'd everything to 777, and I show full access when ls -Z is used.
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
I'm having problems with Ubuntu 10.04 samba PDC and windows7. I have a test network that I'm using to evauate 10.04 before I use it in production and have come across an intriguing problem with Windows 7. I have a clean brand-new installed Windows 7 ultimate and I have no problems joining the domain. (Standard registry modifications made). I can logon the window 7 box locally without a problem however when I try to logon using the domain the Windows 7 box accepts my password and start to load the user profile, at the point where the desktop would appear message is displayed to say "logging off" and returns me to logon screen.
What I have done to date: -- wiped Windows 7 box and reinstalled Wiped user profiles both local and on PDC (including all user information) Performed a complete uninstall of Samba (including TDB's) and reinstalled a fresh copy of Samba and manually edited the smb.conf is a minimum basic PDC I have no problems with Windows XP (SP3) box at any stage
I setup ubuntu 10.04.1 server on a computer I'm using as a server for my home. I can view the share folder on server from win7 I can read files but cannot right to the share. However from Xubuntu I was able to read and write no problem. So the question is... why can't windows 7 read and right like xubuntu? I have 2 win7 machines and both were denied writing to the share folder... I'm by no means an expert.. I setup the share using ubuntu server guide pdf... not sure if its done correctly maybe someone here knows off hand what kind of permissions would be causing this.
I have a LAN of about 70 computers that I would like to share media files between. I have gotten to the point with Samba that I can view the files without a username/password from client PC's. I would like to make all the folders read only except for one which will be writable for everyone. The thing that I am having a hard time with is allowing a couple of administrators (on Windows 7 machines) read/write access for all files/folders. I am completely new to Ubuntu and Samba so please make explanations thorough. Here is /etc/samba/smb.conf file:
Trying to setup Samba for the first time and am unable to connect to the share from my Windows machine. It is a very basic setup, just trying to setup a single share to use a backup location for my windows files.
I've done the following: 1. Fresh install if fedora 15 2. installed samba rpm -qa | grep samba gives the following:
3. Used samba server configuration to setup the share and create the samba users 4. When I tried to connect from my windows machine I get the error that the server is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource or I get the error "windows cannot access server, check spelling and try again.
Both computers can ping each other. I opened samba ports in the linux firewall and tried to connect again: same error Disabled firewall all together and have the same error. Here is the output from the testparm command
I just installed UNE v10.10 on a new netbook and I guess I've become too spoiled using the Desktop's PLACES->Connect to Server because I can't find where this is in UNE. I'd also like to "bookmark" it so I can single click to connect to "crunch20/netshare2" (I have added ip for crunch20 in /etc/hosts).
I've setup a samba server on a centos 5 machine and am trying to connect to it via a windows 7. The problem I'm encountering is that the only share I am able to connect to is the tmp share. It doesn't matter if it is a protected share or not, I always get a "network path could not be found error" when trying to open the share from windows.
Fairly new Linux user, running Fedora 12, attempting to set up a simple Samba share to share files with a Windows box. I've gotten to the point where I can connect from the Windows box, and see a home directory and the directory I'm trying to share. The home directory is accessible and works as expected, but when I try to access the other directory I get "The network path could not be found."
This is my first attempt at a server, and I running Ubuntu 10.04 server. I had to reconfigure my network, so now I am attempting to use it as a server. I have a Linksys WRT54G2 connecting various machines-- Windows XP, Ubuntu builds, and LinuxMint 10 Julia.
The long and the short of it is that the server connects to the Internet-- I can get updates and install programs via terminal. The server also connects to the router, as tested by pings. The client computers all ping back and forth nicely, and I can access the file share via FTP from the local side and externally (this is part of a larger network).
How can I get it so that my client computers can access the Internet through the router and server?
