I am having problems trying to share a printer on my desktop. The printer is an HP Laserjet 1020, and the desktop is running 64-bit Ubuntu Karmic. None of the other boxes on the network (wired/wireless, 32-bit/64-bit, Ubuntu Lucid/Win7/XP) can access the printer.
I have checked all of the appropriate boxes in printer properties and server settings. When I try to install the printer on the other systems, I am asked for a username and password on the desktop. I set up a user named "printer" and gave it a password, but when I try to use that username/password to install the printer on one of the other systems, I get an "access denied" error. All of the networked systems can see each other, and access shared files.
I just installed an HP Officejet 6200 on a Slackware 12.1 machine. It uses a USB interface. If I am on the machine, I can print to it with no problem. When I am on my Debian or Centos machines, I cannot. I have midified the cupsd.conf file to allow everyone to connect to it but so far have not had any success. Port 631 is open on all machines. I have explicitly added a hosts allow 192.168.0.0/24 line in several portions of the conf file with no luck. If I use the cups interface on any of the machines using localhost:631 as the address, I can not only see the printer I can print to it, but I noticed, I am actually attached to the Slackware machine where the printer is located. Can someone suggest a debugging method to help?
The problem is it won't. I have an Ubuntu (11.04) computer cabled to a Belkin wireless router. The Brother printer is usb connected to the Ubuntu box - there is no problem printing directly. However, I need to print from a separate wireless connected Win7 box to the printer on the Ubuntu box and this does not work.
The Win7 can see all other Win computers on the network, but not the Ubuntu. Answers at my level gratefully received (eg: it took me two weeks, many hours and 3 re-installs to get dvds to play on Ubuntu 10). Current printer sharing information on the internet is either hopelessly above my head or outdated.
I have got a wireless network in my house with a router as the hub and my Linux Laptop and Macbook connecting to it. I have got a wireless Kodak printer which the Macbook uses, but they do not have any drivers for Linux. I have enabled ssh for both the laptops and have enabled "Print sharing" on the Macbook. Can I access the printer from the Linux laptop via the Macbook? When I have sshed to the macbook, the kodak printer comes up in the list of printers to choose from...but the printing job just goes to the queue, but does not actually complete. Is this because I have not got the drivers for the linux laptop?
I have a Fedora 11 box with an HP Laserjet 1000 (connected by USB) a Windows XP machineBoth are on the same network. I am desperately trying to share the printer to the Windows XP box using IPP. The Windows XP machine recognizes the printer queue, configures correctly and then ... nothing. It simply does not print ! Printer sharing worked perfectly in Fedora 10, with CUPS 1.3, but something seems to have broken.I used the guide available at this adress and tried all mentionned possibilites
I have a Samsung CLX 3175 connected via CUPS to a Ubuntu box running 11.04. After installing the Samsung Unified Printer Driver as described in this post [URL] the printer works perfectly under Linux, I even got network scanning to work under Windows via TwainSane.
The big problem is network printing from Windows over Samba, though (although I thought that this should be easier to set up than scanning..). Even after hours of trying, I could not get it to print a single page spooled from my Windows computer.the print jobs do show up in CUPS as finished, but do not actually get processed. Could this be a rights-related thing? Depending of one setting in smb.conf (namely, "cups options = raw"), the printer even makes some noise and warms up when I spool a new job -- but it does not print.
My setup is the following:
- CUPS in the current version with Samsung Driver - Samba 3.5.8 - Windows XP and 7 clients
I'm looking for a SIMPLE solution for printer sharing. I have an HP printer attached to my Linux host (prints fine from there). I want my XP box to be able to use this printer as well. I can ping my XP box from my Linux box (and vice versa), and the XP box has the HP print driver installed.When I go into my XP box and try to add a printer, I click "A network printer or a printer attached to another computer", then "Connetc to a printer on the Internet or on a home office network" and enter my printer.I'm using the printer name as show in CUPS. I also tried it without port 631. Either way, I get an error message saying "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server.
I installed it on a desktop today to try it out. So far I'm loving it and have gotten everything to work except for one thing:
There's a printer connected to it (HP PSC 1600), and I'd like the other computers on the network to be able to print to that computer. The other computers are running Windows 7, and one is running Snow Leopard.
When I plugged in the printer, Ubuntu recognized it almost immediately and installed it. Wonderful! I then went ahead and set it to be Shared, and hoped for the best. Neither the Windows machine or the OS X machine could find the printer...even after I pointed them directly at what I thought was the CUPS address (\mycomputername:631). To make matters even more confusing, I was able to set up shared folders and have the other computers be able to view them.
I have: 1) A desktop PC running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Virtualbox guest, Windows XP. My printer is connected and operates via XP. Yep, its a Windows-only printer, but the VB file-sharing allows me to print Ubuntu files. 2.) Another desktop running Puppy Linux. 3.) A netbook running XP as a native install.
No. 1 and 2 are connected to a Level One router by ethernet cable. No. 3 is wireless. All 3 machines work fine independently, with no problems accessing the internet. Getting these machines to "see" each other seems to be harder than falling off a log! How to share files and the printer, especially on how to configure the router. The manual that came with it doesn't seem to explain how to do this. It assumes that all your devices are either wired or wireless, with no hints about how to network wired and wireless machines together.
I want to learn how to build a Linux network from scratch that includes file and printer sharing, intranet. I have an intermediate-level knowledge of Windows networking. Can anyone suggest a book or online tutorial that I can learn from? Now let me be clear: I am finding no shortage of tutorials on the web. However, too many are old or incomplete.
A little extra info: I am a teacher/network admin for a small private school with about 50 student computers (that I wish to become Linux machines in the future) and about 10 staff computers (mostly Windows laptops--I do not expect the staff to convert to Linux as readily), I currently do not have an intranet implemented.
So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)
So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.
I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.
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?
trying to share a few folders with Windows PCs. Usually I just right click and choose "Sharing Options" from nautilus and choose to share it. This isn't there in gnome 3 via gnome3 ppa for Ubuntu. I've tried installing and adding the folders I wanted using samba configuration tool and gadmin-samba tools. I've also installed just about anything that could potentially have anything to do with file sharing from synaptic including:
samba, nautilus-share, smbclient, windbind
and whole lot of other stuff in hope that I had just been missing stuff. I also booted my laptop which is running 11.04 with Unity and I right clicked and selected "Sharing Options" like the usual way and shared a folder and then installed gadmin-samba and the samba configuration tools and the folder I shared wasn't included there. Meaning it isn't using the same thing? Also the only thing installed when shareing a folder is samba and some libpam-something. Two files! Then shares perfectly! Why is it so difficult to set up a simple share with Gnome 3? No matter what I do I boot into Windows on my laptop and try to connect to my network share the same way I always have and it doesn't work.
I am fairly new on CentOS and am in the process of setting up a small home office network that shares Internet access through the Linux (CentOS) box.I have two network interface cards The Linux box is also the DHCP server. My challenge is to get the client machines to access the Internet! I have a PPP connection to the ISP. Essentially I followed these Instructions CENTOS REDHAT Internet Connection Sharing. Pretty straight forward but I am still not able to get clients to access the Internet. I defined the DNS server through DHCP (196.44.x.y). I assumed it has to do with default gateway and it is set as follows: on the Linx box the gateway is my ppp0 link. DHCP uses eth1 (LAN card) fixed IP as the gateway. All clients are reflecting this information. The firewall (iptables) is reflecting the FORWARDING and POSTROUTING rules as advised.
Is there a step I mioght have missed to get this working? I tried to Google but its not getting me far.
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
So I want to put some of my folders on my network. I open up nautilus and go to my home folder and right click -> properties-> share and then selected share this folder, made it so that others could modify stuff on it and have guest access (which is what I want), and changed the share name to "home". Then I clicked create share. I then went to Places->Network->******'s public files on [the name of my computer]. But then some stupid error message popped up saying:
"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"
I have internet on my ubuntu machine (eth0) I am sharing with (eth1) My windows computers are getting IP addresses via DHCP from the Ubuntu Machine, and I can see (and use) samba/windows shares on all computers.Internet connection is not working on any of the windows computers. I have eth1 set to "shared to other computers" under the IPv4 settings
I am setting up a Beowulf Cluster using CentOS 5.5. I have the head node with two NIC devices eth0 and eth1. eth0 is the one that is connected to the WAN while eth1 provides the internal LAN connection. I am trying to configure internet connection sharing with the slave nodes on the network so that I can update/install software as needed via ssh sessions using yum. I have set up the master node with the requisite changes to iptables to enable IPv4 forwarding. From my slave nodes I can ping ip address from the terminal, but my domain name resolution is not working. i.e. if I ping [URL] it can not resolve, but if I ping 22.214.171.124 (one of google's IP's) I can communicate with the machine without a problem. I also ran the configuration tool provided in the README section of the forum on the slave node and the master node. The links are:
I'm trying to print files to a printer that is connected to my Ubuntu machine. Basically the printer server (and client) is the Ubuntu machine. The other client machine is a Windows 7 laptop. I have followed many tutorials and guides on how to enable printer sharing. For some reason I can't get the printer to be listed as an available printer.
after much flaunching around for several days, I was able to access a windows based printer on my network from this Ubuntu 10.4 laptop. What I first discovered was I had to install Samba and Cups (cups was already installed as it turned out). Having done that, I tried several iterations of discovering the HP printer attached to a Dell Latitude on my network. Nothing.Then I read something, somewhere about using the IP address of the Latitude instead of the network name (Latitude). So I peeked into the router to find the IP address assigned to Latitude and VOILA! I plugged that into the box for location,along with the name of the printer and it did the rest. Actually it found the right drivers and did the rest.
I see a problem with that protocol, however. If I reset the router, which I have to do once a week or so, I fear that the IP assigned to Latitude will change. As it is, it has 192.168.2.2 but if I reset and bring up my Asus first, I imagine Latitude will end up with ~.2.3, in which case I have no idea what will happen.
So I have a Ubuntu box with a printer trying to share it's printer with a Mac using cups over ipp. Has anynone else had trouble with this?At first the printer would be stuck in the busy state according to the Mac. Any attempt to change it's state would only work for a split second. Then I found on the ubuntu help site (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ne...tingWithUbuntu) a command the run on the Mac, cupsctl BrowseRemoteProtocols=cups
This works temporarilyand allows printing, but then it fails again some time later, seems to last only to the next restart (which isnt a long time for a laptop).
I've recently bought a nice little HP LaserJet 1200, which was easy to configure and setup locally. However I wish to share the printer throughout the house with up to three/four Windoze machines.
I think it would be best to set this up perhaps using IPP rather than Samba, as I can't seem to get any of the Windows machines in the house to see my SUSE Box, shame really, seeing as it's superior ha ha
I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and I want to share a printer on that computer with my windows network (mix of XP and Vista). I have network connectivity and and can see other windows computers and they can see me, I am just stumped on how to share a printer on my linux machine with all of the Windows computers on my network.
