I have a machine acting as a gateway for a private network. While it can ping hosts on that private network, I can't use samba (smbclient or smbmount) to access shares on hosts on the private network from that machine. Other machines on the private network can access shares on other machines - just not the gateway server.
Here's how the gateway is configured:
When I try to connect to ports 139 or 445 (via smbclient or smbmount) the mount() system call times out. As I mentioned above, I can ping those hosts, so UDP packets work but TCP packets seem to get blocked or lost.
As the subjects states, I cannot see my windows 7 shares from any of my *nix computers. I tend to over complicate things and I may do so here, but I want to try and be as thorough as possible in explaining the situation. I'll state w/ the basic layout of my lan code...
I'm on Windows 7 64bit and Ubuntu 11.04 64bit.Windows is on a net book with not so much hard drive space so I want to keep all my music and movies on my hard drive of my Ubuntu desktop. When I try to find my Ubuntu machine I get nothing though..No matter what though, Win7 simply will not see it on the network. Not even when I run "\ipadress"..If anything is there away to delete everything related to Samba and start over?
I'm trying to mount an NFS share from my Gentoo computer on my FC12 laptop, but every time I try to mount the share my laptop completely crashes. The end result is that I have an unresponsive laptop which switches from X to a blank screen and I'm unable to switch to any VT's or reset X. I never had any issues with my laptop freezing like this when I had Gentoo on it, but I'm giving FC a shot.
Server: NFS version: 3 Code: $ cat /etc/exports # /etc/exports: NFS file systems being exported. See exports(5). /mnt/OSX192.168.*.*(async,rw,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) Running rpcinfo on the server (command run from client)
Anyone recognize these symptoms or know which log files to look in to begin diagnosing? Currently, I'm only able to transfer files via ssh, so I'd like to be able to do that properly.
My network is barely functional. I'm running 2 linux servers connected by openvpn (tun) through routers on both sides. There are Windows clients (98 and XP) on both subnets. One server (ls3) acting as PDC for the domain. The Windows clients use the respective linux boxes as gateways. On the server side (ls3 which is both openvpn server and samba server), all the clients can read/write properly to shares on both sides. The problems are all on the client side. Share connections to the server side disconnect after a few moments.
Browsing on the client side windows machines is fine. I can see shares on the server side. Some server side files open and are readable, writable, other server side files will not open. Some samba logon scripts on the server side can be opened from the client side. Others open after a long wait to a blank file! Permissions on server side files are set to 777 for testing. If a file won't open or reads "blank", that doesn't change no matter how many times you try. A non-readable/writable file overwritten by a readable/writable one can be read and written to!
I can ping successfully from any client on either side to any other client by either ip address or workstation name. Firewalls on both side are set to forward tcp and udp traffic going to port 1194 to the respective gateway linux boxes. Iptables on both linux gateways are down for testing. I tried reversing the openvpn server/client roles with the same result; the same physical side of the network had the problem. On one of the windows 98 clients, I wiped out the networking configuration completely and rebuilt it from scratch. Same result.
One one of the windows xp clients, I tried to rejoin the domain. It went through successfully but the result was the same as above. The network was operating smoothly for several years until the client side dsl modem broke last week. It was replaced with a newer model and at the same time I migrated from a pptp connection to openvpn. How to resolve this, Is this something to do with openvpn? Is this a network hardware problem? Am I missing something in the port forwarding on the routers? My smb.conf files are ancient except I added interface tun0. I have never seen 2 files sitting next to each other in the same directory where one opens and the other doesn't!
I'm running Mandrake 9.2 on the client side and Mandriva 2008 on the server side. I have a Sonicwall firewall on the server side, a Westell 7500 on the client side. I note that during the modem install, the http port was opened to the linux box on the client side and the access log got huge over the weekend and I ran out of disk space until I closed it down and deleted the log. I tried a simple test while viewing /var/log/daemons/errors on the client side. From a windows workstation in the client subnet, I opened a dos window and tried to print a file located on the samba server on the openvpn server machine which I knew NOT to be problematic.
The file printed and there were no errors reported in the log. I repeated the test with a known problematic file. The file would not print. The errors log noted: Authenticate/Decrypt packet error: packet HMAC authentication failed I regenerated the static.key file on the server side and scp'd it to the client side and restarted both openvpn's. I checked for duplicate files named static.key on both sides. Same error.
I have successfully mounted windows shares in to ubuntu and can able to access the folders from nautilus. But i wanted to open the mounted share folders from the "open file browser(select a file dialog)" in DeVeDe app. I have tried all the options, and nothing worked out.
This will be a little long (having read Phil's 'how to ask questions' FAQ). I'm trying to get OpenVPN working between my CentOS server and some Windoze laptops running XP. There seems to be plenty of sample config files available, but to date, none of them have worked for me. Pulling out my trusty Wireshark, I've found some clues,
BACKGROUND: My local subnet (NAT'ed by my gateway router) is 192.168.52.x. My router has been configured with a conduit (port-forward) for port 1194 (the standard OpenVPN port), which points towards my CentOS server.The CentOS server is .52.112, and the supplicant is .52.110. I have tried the lient both inside and outside my local subnet, with no difference in events or outcomes.
I an trying to install ubuntu onto my old Windows XP computer, I have burned the **** with the ISO files on it with a Mac and also tried using Windows 7, they have the files when I load them on those, but when I go to put the disk in my Windows XP computer it say's the disk is blank. I reboot my computer, and it doesn't try to install anything.
I have a new netbook - "Eee PC 1005PE-PU27-BK" and installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04, Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic. I love Ubuntu, but I also want to be able to access Windows 7 if I can. I've read some on GRUB, but the menu on startup isn't showing my Windows 7 instance. I've tried reinstalling GRUB, but when I run sudo update-grub, I still get this:
Code: Generating grub.cfg ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-24-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin done
I know that Windows 7 is still on the system, I just can't access it.
So, as the title says Windows 7 doesn't show up in GRUB2's selection menu, but it does show my Windows XP professional option that I had before Linux and then reinstalled. After searching very long for the problem in Linux and GRUB2 I decided to boot into XP, witch gave me the option for Windows 7 or older versions of Windows -> so I eventually can boot to it! So here is the real question: How can I make an entry for Windows 7 and for Windows XP? This is because I'd like to use a theme for GRUB and it would be to stupid to make GRUB look nice if I then come to a stupid screen of the Windows loader!
i've configured my laptop so i can use my domain account (active directory win 2003 DC) to logon to my machine. Now i'd like to browse and mount shares etc using my logon information. Now when i connect to a share with nautilus it tells me 'guest' can't log in and i need to re-enter my user info. This is a real pain since our passwords change often. Is there some way i can use PAM to authenticate? I've searched everywhere, but you only find info about the other way round (win->linux).
I want to auto mount my ntfs partition using pysdm. However, it does not see it. When I do an fdisk -l it shows up. I can access the partition through my home folder... it just doesn't show up in pysdm. I have already tried to reinstall the program.
i just installed Ubuntu from an ISO about a year old and of course i updated it to the latest version and when i get that screen at startup where i have a choice of which version to load i get something like this: My current version, memtest, an old installation of Ubuntu and some really old versions. The problem is i also have Windows7 and Vista installed(vista really needs to go) but i don't have either of them as a choice in the bootloader. How do i get it back? Also before the update i had it on the list.
I just reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 (I was running it wubi but various issues prompted me to install it in a separate partition) and now windows isn't an option in the GRUB. I have windows Vista on /dev/sda2 and I can see it on GParted.
I tried looking through some of the other posts, but I think that I need some direct help with this one. I have tried update-grub and nothing changed.
I don't use Windows often, but it is nice to have the option.
i've had windows all my life. heard about ubuntu 10.0. thought i tried it out. i tried using some dual installation with windows or something (im running, well WAS running vista, btw) i dont know WHAT i did. i got ubuntu working, but Windows does NOT show up in the boot menu?
noticed that the button at the bottom left corner of the desktop doesn't work.It is supposed to hide everything on the desktop and when clicked again bring everything back.I was jacking around (learning) with Compiz yesterday, but not sure how that could affect it.
I've recently switched to Ubuntu from debian, and I'm now running a fresh install of 9.04 32 bit. I have a Windows XP media computer which I would like to be able to browse using smb://. This worked fine on my debian system, but I cannot get it to work on ubuntu. The windows XP machine has a couple of shares, e.g Music. I can access the Music share via smb://, but I cannot write to it. Nautilus just says "Permission denied". I can also see the default shares, e.g. E$, but if I try to open them I am prompted with a password, but no matter what I enter it seems to have no effect. How to proceed?
i have 3 ubuntu machines running 9.10. All of them are running SMB so that the Windows machines can access the shares on the Ubuntu machines, but the ubuntu machines can not access shares on the Windows machines. When I click to connect to a windows machine ( all of them running XP), it says "connecting to COMPUTERNAME.." It never opens the computer, and it always comes back with an error saying that it failed to connect. I haven't been using ubuntu for very long, so im not as savvy with it as I am on windows. All windows machines can see all ubuntu shares, just not the other way around and I'd like it to be both.
Running Ubuntu 10.10 M-M..Running Network, my machine sees my Windows Workgroup, and even the machines on the workgroup. When I try to access those machines, I get a message "Failed to retrieve share list from server." I've been able to mount other machines by using straight IP accesss, but that is of little use since IP addresses are not Static.
My question is that I have a handful of servers, Server 1 is a Suse Linux machine and Server 2 is a Windows Server 2003 machine. I can mount and access the files/shares on the Linux machine no problem but when I come to using the Server 2003 shares I encounter problems ... here is a snip of my fstab ...
Code: //10.0.0.20/applications /myfolder/applications cifs username=user1,password=pass1,auto,uid=user2,gid=group2,0 0 user1 and pass1 is the username and password of a user (local to the remote machine) and user2 and group2 are taken from the machine performing the mount.
Am I doing it right, is that how I should be mounting a share from a (Domain enabled) Windows Server 2003?
I have a problem with 'Samba' shares on Ubuntu 8.04. Bringing shared folders over from Windows (on another computer) is not a problem...until I try same process with a Windows backup folder holding .tib data from an 'Acronis' backup.The files appear in Ubuntu Network, everything looks o.k., Ubuntu just won't copy the data to another folder. Other shares work without a problem, its only with these ':.tib' data.
This is a bit of a shameless cross-forum bump, as I'm really trying to crack samba in the hope of getting some server action going, and this is the closest I've been to actually understanding what I'm playing with. "Well, 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 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"As you'll see in my original fedoraforum post, the workgroup misreport issue mysteriously fixed itself after a few updates, although I'm inclined to blame my mate's Win 7 box...call it force of habit, I've just generally come to mistrust an OS that tries so diligently to shift focus away from its shell.
I have x11 forwarding enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on a suse 11.2 32 bit box running kde I can open x apps on a windows machine using xming and putty just fine, but when I boot the same machine into suse 11.2 64 bit using kde and try using konsole I get: cannot connect to x server
The command I'm using to log in is: ssh -X -l username host I doubt the problem is with the server I'm logging into or it wouldn't work in windows, not really sure what to look for as I've never had a problem using x11 forwarding from a linux client before only windows ones
When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.
I am unable to mount Windows shares on Fedora 12. From Nautilus, I can navigate to the shares, but when I attempt to open one I get a dialog "Password required for share ... on ..." asking for username (prepopulated with my username), domain (prepopulated with MYGROUP) and password. I have the same username on the Windows box, but when I enter the password and click Connect, the dialog just pops up again. I'm not sure what "domain" is, tried with my Windows workgroup name, no good. If I blank out either username or domain, the Connect button is disabled.
I tried using the mount command:mount -t cifs //192.168.0.2/... /tmp/mnt -o username=adrian,password=...,iocharset=utf8,file_m ode=0777,dir_mode=0777 That did work once, but now gives the useful error message:mount error(5): Input/output error Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) I can run Windows instead on the client machine, and that gives me access to the shares, no problem.
I have libsmbclient-3.4.5-55.fc12.i686, but that was installed a month ago. I don't see any more recent changes to anything relating to the samba client. I've never had to enter a password to access Windows shares. Actually, it looks like the problem may be on the Windows side, although as far as I know, nothing has changed there. Using smbclient with debuglevel set high, I see failures with this error:SPNEGO login failed: NT_STATUS_REQUEST_NOT_ACCEPTED Every now and again, I can connect to one or more shares, but after a few attempts, I can't connect to any more. Tried rebooting the Windows box, but that's had no effect. Oh, and "smbclient -L" shows domain as the host name of the windows box, but anonymous login (smbclient -L -N) shows domain as the workgroup name.
After booting, the sda5 and sda8 mounts work fine, but the Windows shares haven't been mounted. If I enter the command: mount -a everything works fine. I don't know if this a timing issue, or something to do with the new systemd stuff, but it has happened in previous Fedora releases from time to time.
I am trying to share files on my Windows XP Home machine over my P2P network to my Ubuntu netbook. The folder I wish to share is configured in Windows with public permissions. I go to the Files & Folders > Documents and then I click on Network in the Places tab. A Windows Network icon appears, but when I double click it I receive the error message, "Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server."
