General :: Configure File Sharing Server In Ubuntu Which Will Be Along With Windows?
Jul 19, 2011
How to configure File Sharing server which will be in the same network along with Windows DNS servers and others.Googling showed me that "Samba server" will do the job of file sharing . Okay samba server is configured on Ubuntu Linux machine but how to add this to the existing domain where windows machines are ? Do i have to really add this Samba server to windows Active directory or adding it in the network will do? Please also help me in configuring samba server security and the ease of user access of the data on the server.
I have a CentOS + Samba server and Windows XP client machines. Users, passwords and permissions are entered on the server machine.users and passwords ( same as on the server ) are entered in the XP client machine.When attempting to access a public file on the server using a XP client machine and the IP address of my server, I am asked a user name and password and none of the already entered seem to work. I cannot access the server file (prompted again and again to enter user name and password). What did i miss
Question for the sys admin types:So, say you want to do file sharing in an environment with a lot of Windows clients, but you want the shared data on a Linux server. You can use SAMBA, and that will make all the Windows clients happy (provided, of course, that you can get SAMBA working correctly). But is this your only option?I mean, obviously you can use ssh/sftp. But the Windows sftp clients I have tried don't make the file sharing process as simple for non-techies: you either just get a command-line, or you get some kind of two-pane application view like with filezilla or cuteFTP; it isn't as integrated into the desktop as what you get when using native SMB file sharing.So, is there Windows software you can install that can make the file sharing experience very non-expert friendly with some protocol like ssh/sftp or NFS?
I keep trying and keep trying to set up my father's documents folder on our PC running Ubuntu 11.04 as a shared folder across the network with Windows computers, and I keep getting error messages like this one:
"'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /home/frank as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this."
I currently have his home folder set up so anyone on our PC running Ubuntu can access and change the files, at the moment. I also want to know if I can set up this file sharing with Windows, but still have all his files protected with a password?
How would I set up a LAN network at home between my computer that has Linux and someone else's computer that has Windows? and how would we share files and folders? It's easy if we both are using windows, so now I'm trying to figure this out in ubuntu.
I did a fresh install of Lucid alongside Vista on my laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804. When I went into "Personal File Sharing" under System > Preferences, it said that the necessary packages were not installed. Using the documentation at this link: [URL] I went into a terminal, opened shares-admin, and as promised it told me that I didn't have the right software installed, and allowed me to check both NFS and SMB to install. I did so, installed, and at the end, it said everything was successful.
After exiting the dialog, the window asking me to install NFS/SMB appeared again. I selected to install, it disappeared, and then reappeared. It did this repeatedly, until I decided to close it out. I then went back to the guide, and went to add a new share. But the drop down box would not allow me to choose Windows share, only Unix (NFS). How do I enable Windows File sharing? I have used Ubuntu in the past and have got it to share with Windows computers flawlessly. Now, it appears that this essential (for me) functionality is broken.
when I installed network sharing I accidentally installed file sharing for Windows networks to. How can I remove windows networks file sharing and keep only ubuntu's own network file sharing?We have wireless network and only Ubuntu machines connected to it
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 had set up my new install with Fedora 13 and It just flat worked out of the box for file sharing and printer sharing.. but ala there were enough other issues with 13 that I have now installed Fedora 12 but I can't seem to get the file and printer sharing going I followed these instructions [URL] and instead of "WORKGROUP" I used "Brandergroup" since that is the name of the local net...
I install Fedora 11 for file sharing from windows client Win 95/98, Win xp & xp home. I can login from win xp & xp home to access folder but I can't login from win 95/98 to access folder. I got the error message... "The domain password supplied is not correct or access to your logon has been denied". from win 95/98 Desktop computers.
I have 2 laptops, one is a Acer travelmate (running xubuntu) and another one is a Dell studio (Running Windows 7). I also have an iMac..2 external hard drive and a BSNL 3G usb data card. I want to setup a network so i can share my files and internet connection between the 3 systems. I don't know what i want to do is possible or not. what i want to do:
1) connect the usb data card to Acer and share the internet connection using the inbuilt wireless card in the laptop so that the dell and imac can access it.
2) connecting the 2 ext. hard drive to Acer and sharing the files over the same connection( wireless connection used to share internet with other systems) so that i can access the files from my dell and imac. I want to mention that i don't have a router.
if yes..how? and if not why? i'm a newbie..so plz help me..earlier also this forum helped me a lot in learning linux..hope this time also i will have some good experiences.
I have a win XP box and want to share files on this win XP box In Ubuntu 10.10 I previous used, I just connect the win XP sahred folder via file browser without any username and password. In my Debian Squeeze, when I connect to my win XPIt poped up a window and asked me the username and password. But I don't set any password in my win XP even my administrator account. How can I do to make my connecting to win XP smoothly like the Ubuntu does?
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 able to set up samba server with adc it is working properly. also i set the GID and stikki bit permission in sharing so i can set only crater can delete the files. But i want some users have ability to delete permission for all files and folders in that sharing
Quite often I need someone to transfer a file to my laptop, and it's often different OS to different OS, and setting file-sharing, sshd/ssh, ftpd/ftp, and whatever else not is often not worth it. A USB key is also not always handy or big enough.
But, it's easy to be on the same network, just hard to get service working on top of it in less than 3 minutes if you've never dealt with that person's computer before.
What I was thinking would be the simplest thing would be if I could run apache, and have a very simple web script that simply allows file uploads. Something that would serve a web page that has a "choose file" button which brings up the file dialog, pretty standard I guess. I wouldn't say no to a few more functions on top of that.
Given that, does anyone know of a simple apache modules, or a web server script (language doesn't matter) that would allow for this?
my laptop seems to have a bad HDD, and I was thinking of trying to make it a "thin client." However since it is a laptop obviously I want to take it places. Is it possible to make a terminal server and "thin client" connect through the internet and not just LAN?The reason I quote thin client is because in my mind I am still going to need to use some HDD so I can connect to the internet and find my server.
To make things easier to read refer to the above as "question 1" and the velow as "question2" Thank you. And sorry for the inconvience. These topics I felt were to similar to make separate topics.I also have another question, the files I have on my server can be accessed by anyone on the network(added a second HDD and network shared it) how can I make it so that the LAN clients have to "login" (or it uses their computers login info to send them to only their files? And if that is possible can we expand it to allow me to use those logins through the internet?
I'm trying to decide on how to host and serve files to multiple operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows XP and Windows 7) over the internet. I'd like this to be secure (obviously), but don't want to use SSH tunnelling.Ideally, this would be something which could be persistently mounted on the client machine (a network drive in Windows, likewise in Mac OS X and Linux) and wouldn't require the installation of extra software on the clients. I thought about samba, but I'm not sure if it's secure enough to be internet-facing. Would FTP fit?resumably it's possible to have encrypted connections only and limit connections to a specified number of client IPs.
1> i have centos5.4 fileserver. i synchronize my document of windows xp with fileserver through samba server. while synchronzing ,virus effected file are also get sync in fileserver . i scheduled copying in crontab also.meanwhile by synchronizing the fresh file get replaced by virus file.this result lost of my data.

2> is there is any program to compare size of files on samba server
we have moved to linux platforms now. can i move my windows file server to linux server,main work on this windows server is sharing folders which having secure permissions to respective groups & users.i knew we can share folder on linux. before formatting my windows server i want to know can we create new users to access particular folder?. users will not have any other kind of access except accessing there data folder. currently we have below scenario :users named a,b,c,d & e. all users having their folders to access. a & c are in the same group & they have common access to other common folder. please help me to change my server in ubuntu, i have planned to migrate in ubuntu server 10.04 (64 bit).
**Edit: path for mount was incorrect Distro Server: CentOS 5.5

Backround I am attempting to setup a server in my house mostly(for the first time) for backups and file sharing. It is important to me that file permissions are preserved. So its my understanding that I must use idmapd in order for this to work. As of now I'm only working with the linux distros while osx will be dealt with once these two work together. portmapper is up and running, along with lockd on both machines. Firewalls are also down on both machines for now. The server side was all setup using the GUI interface with no extra options selected. Problem When attempting to "mount -t nfs4 10.0.0.2/$sharedfolder /mnt" I get an error operation not permitted with no error printing in /var/log/message. If I use "mount -t -o nolock nfs4 10.0.0.2/$sharedfolder /mnt" it mounts just fine. Ive checked both machines multiple times to make sure that lockd is up and running. In the idmapd.conf file I the domain as "localdomain" for both machines but I doubt that is right; like I stated above this is my first attempt at a server. I'm assuming the problem is a whole missing step that involves some kind of id mapping server I need to setup.
I currently have a debian hpc server unit of 10 p4 computers running under debian lenny in use for serving my home network via pxe. I was wondering if there was anything I could use to allow the same read and write acces that is on my pxe machines on my new palm pre plus. That would save me the hassle of syncing all my documents and movies etc to my phone every day or so.
So basically what I am asking is if I can use the current 5tb nfs raid and mount it some way to a remote ip that I can access fully on my phone without the need for a flash plugin. Btw the phone is homebrew app ready.
