General :: Windows 7 - Share Files With A Virtual Machine From A Win 7 Desktop?
Nov 9, 2010
I have a Win7 deskptop (host) and want to run a linux virtual machine; but I want that linux virtual machine to be able to access a directory on the host machine (in this case, to serve a web directory).
What virtual machine software would you recommend for this?
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
I'm running kernel release 2.6.26-2-686 on a i686 and are trying to share files between my machine and some Windows 95/98 machines. When I enter smb://ip_number/share_name in Nautilus, it works. I can browse the files. When I try the same with smbclient or smbmount, it complains.
smbclient -I=ip_number -L=//server/share gives cli_rpc_pipe_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe srvsvc to machine tf_calibration. Error was ERRSRV - ERRerror (Non-specific error code.)
I am trying to see share files on my windows machine to my linux machine. I would like an answer to how to fix the problem. This is where i am at i am using my own network to learn who to use nmap properly. I ping my whole network with nmap -sS -O. Then i used nmblookup -a which gave me the infromation i needed. Then i run smbclient -L computername -I ip address -N
This will not show me the windows os this only show me my laptop. What can i change for this to show me the other computer on this network. The port i am wanting is open. I want to be able to mount the share files and move them to my computer i am going to use the commands put and get to move the files when i am able to get to the smb: >
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
What is the best way to share files in virtualbox between host/machine I thought of trying usb but the devices are all greyed out. I know the fix for this but I have to search for it, permission problem I think? Or is there a more elegant way
My goal is to install Windows 7 on a virtual machine running on Ubuntu. The Lenovo machine came with Windows 7 installed, but did not come with a boot disk. What are my options? Should I ask Lenovo for a disk? Will I need to purchase Windows just for the virtual machine?
My hostmachine is Windows, and install Ubuntu on a virtual machine. I developed some program on Ubuntu. Suppose I want to transfer these files to a folder in Windows. How to find and get these files, which logically are stored in the virtual machine.
I want to do two things: Set up a virtual machine on Windows 7 to run Ubuntu Set up a way for the virtual machine to read the windows disk or windows to have read/write access to the virtual machine's disk. My goal is to have a place where both Ubuntu and Windows can read and write. What software is good for this task? Are their free programs that can run virtual machines? Also if my machine is running Windows 7 64-bit, can I install Ubuntu 32-bit? Or am I forced to use Ubuntu 64-bit? Or does it not matter?
I have installed Oracle Enterprise Linux Server 5 as host OS and Windows XPP(Guest OS) as virtual Machine by VMWare Player on standalone Desktop PC.Now I want to run all commands of Linux from Windows XPP.How should I proceed?
I have Samba shares on a Red Hat server vmware virtual machine. We just upgraded our vmware tools and vmware hardware to vsphere and now I can't authenticate to the samba shares. It prompts for credentials, but it won't take the login. Has anyone seen this or have any idea how to fix this?
I have a linux (Ubuntu server 8) that is busy collecting data files for me, but I need to see them on a windows machine. The winXP computer is in an AD domain. The ubuntu server is running Samba and I believe I have set up sharing - I can see/list the files on winXP. however, when I try to open the files to read ( in this case by Wireshark ) I get a permissions denial. Where and how can I set those permissions?
I'm a web developer and I am building a site on a CMS that has issues moving from a WAMP server to LAMP. The live server is LAMP and I am running Windows 7. I don't want to run into problems moving from the test server to the live server, so I was wondering if I could somehow run Linux using a virtual machine (using Windows Virtual PC which I think supports Linux or VirtualBox) and then using a Linux equivalent of WAMP2 server as a test server. how to do this and what the best Linux distribution to use would be?
I have an Ubuntu Desktop 11.04 virtual machine using VirtualBox on my Windows 7 system.
Up until now I have been doing all my development within the Ubuntu environment but unfortunately, I don't like it. I want to move back to Windows, which is much more familiar to me but I would still like to access the virtual box like a virtual server as it is already set up with Apache, PHP, Pear, Git etc...
How can I make the two work in harmony? I essentially want to be able to start the VM and connect to it as if it was a server machine somewhere on my network, without having to actually buy another machine to put on my network.
I am having issues mounting a share on a Windows 2008 Server from all of our Redhat 4 machines. I am trying to back up files before wiping and upgrading them to 5. I will try and post as much information that I gathered after trying different things. I am a newer hire for this network and a Linux newbie.
The scenario is this:
1. Windows 2008 Active Directory. 2. Redhat Enterprise 4 machines
I have root access and I tried entering at the terminal:
" smbclient -L "servername" -U "username"
get the "password" prompt I enter my password and get:
I check event viewer on the 2008 box and last week was seeing:
Event ID: 4625 Keywords: Audit Failure etc, etc "Account for which Logon failed: Security ID: NULL SID Account name: anonymous Account Domain:MYGROUP Failure Information: Failure Reason: Uknown user name or bad password etc, etc
Now the last couple of days the audit failures have not shown up on the 2008 Server box even though I attempted to log in.
The end users used to just use Konquerer smb://"servername"/"share" and it worked but for some reason starting last week this no longer works. Nothing was changed that I know of, this network is in a sealed classified environment with no external access. All additions to the network are monitored and no unapproved software is installed. The lab is in a vault type environment and only a few people know the combination and alarm pass codes so no chance of somebody adding stuff without me knowing it.
I would think with the locked out message it was an issue with my user account but that works fine on the Windows side so I tried my Linux credentials with no success when trying to mount the directory.
Is there something anybody can suggest Linux or Windows side to check? No user accounts work connecting to the Windows share.
p.s. I am aware the above command is only to see the Windows shares but i get the same thing when I just try and mount using CIFS or SMBFS.
Will there be any issues installing and then subsequently running a Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 installation on a VirtualBox VM on a Linux host (Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit)? I require Windows Server 2008 R2 for a course I'm taking, and I dont have any systems to install/deploy it onto.
Host Machine Specs:
Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit 4GB RAM 350GB Disk Space Nvidia Quadro system
I'm running a 64bit Version of Windows 7. I'm also dual-booting 64bit Ubuntu 10.04 (if it matters). However, for this I'm trying to get this working on the Windows 7 side of things. I downloaded the BackTrack 5 32bit GNOME .iso file (BT5-GNOME-32.iso) to my USB stick fine and made a VM on VMware Player. I set the OS as "Other Linux 2.6.x kernel" (if it matters). However, when I go to play my VM I get the following screen. I know I'm supposed to type Startx to launch the GUI. However, nothing happens; it's completely unresponsive (and yes keyboard focus is routed to the VM). There is no response, the cursor doesn't even blink.
I am trying to establish the easiest way to share a folder from an Ubuntu machine to a Windows machine.In the past I have added things to smb.conf and that has all worked fine but what I am trying to do is to figure out what the "new user" way of doing this is so that when I am helping other people I know I am getting them to do the simplest thing.I completely removed samba and reinstalled it so that I didn't have any configuration. Right clicked on a folder and selected "Sharing Options" ticked the "Share this folder box" gave it a name and a comment and ticked the other two boxes.
When I went to the windows laptop then it kept asking for a username/password and nothing worked.Back on the ubuntu machine I did sudo smbpasswd -a [username] and created a blank password. Now from the windows machine I can access the shared folder.Is the smbpasswd step still required? It's very confusing for a new user as there is no suggestion that anything other than right clicking on the folder and choosing the options you want would be required. Is it something to do with the fact that this is an ubuntu machine that has gradually been upgraded through versions and this problem wouldn't have been there from a new install?
I am looking for a program with whom I can stream my desktop as webcam. I know "webcam studio" but it is not good because I am not able to move the "streaming window" like a common window... I need to write numerical values to move the window and it is very awkward. Do you know a program with whom I can do that? In windows I use "magic camera", it is very good! I tried to install with wine, but even if it works the other programs do not see the virtual webcam...
I just made my first RedHat Enterprise v5 installation, the thing is that i have on my network a windows server that i use for storage, i want to be able to share files between the windows server and the RH server, i already edit the smb.conf file and put my workgroup name, but i still cant see my the windows server. When o try to connect using the connect to server option it says, "could not open the location 'smb://server_ip_address/' Unknown error code: 46", i can ping the windows server
I have a linux box that I plan to use primarily as a server. I also have another machine that dual boots Windows/Linux.I would like to have a way to backup my filehe Windows/Linux box onto the Linux server. In other words, I am assuming the hardrive on the Windows/Linux box could fail at any time and I want to have a backup of important files.Should I set up an ftp server to do this? Are there any security issues that I need to be concerned about if the files contain sensitive information etc?
