OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Connect To Samba Server From Mac Snow Leapord?
Sep 6, 2010
I have steup samba shares on my Susi pc. I get to the point where the server asks for a password for the user I have on the Susi box but when I enter the password it fails to connect. tried to add the user, password and enabled the user in the samba conf file. But not sure where it should appear I give below the smb.conf file:
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
# samba-doc package is installed.
My USB printer is connected to an OpenSUSE 11.2 desktop on a home network. I shared the printer with samba and can print from a Windows XP notebook connected to the network, but whenever I try to connect a Windows 7 machine, I always get the message that Windows cannot connect to the printer.
I have opensusu 11.3 on my laptop and windows7 on first desktop, and XP on second desktop. Also, on my opensuse laptop I have installed XP as virtual OS in vmware player.I have setup samba using this guide that was given to me on this forum.From opensuse laptop I can see my Win 7 desktop, but cant log in. I enter Win 7 username and password, but it doesn't let me in.
Now, when I start XP trough vmware I can see win 7 desktop and connect it with username and password and browse my shares. On laptop, file sharing works both ways between host opensuse ang guest XP.On second desktop computer with XP, and I can connect to it from opensuse laptop normally.
I setup a debian home server some time ago and have successfully setup samba so my windows machines can access them and upload/download data off it.I have setup opensuse on this desktop and after allowing smb through the firewall I now seem to have read only access to the smb shares.I am using the same username and password as I do on my windows machine, so in theory smb server should see my username and password and allow me read/write, like it does in win7. Is this correct?
Having just thought about it I think samba is just a tool to get shares working between linux/windows and macos.Is samba even the best tool for linux - linux sharing? how do I get read/write access to my shares in opensuse?or do I use another program to see my shares?I'm a bit new to this linux- linux sharing so I apologies.
He has a Samba 3.2 server on openSUSE 11.1. It worked fine with XP and Vista as a PDC. There are no NT servers on this office LAN. Now he has a W7 computer, and he was not able to sign on. From searching, it seems that an upgrade of Samba and a tweak of the registry are required. He did the upgrade to 3.5 from a supplementary openSUSE repo and restarted the server. But it seems he cannot sign on yet. I don't know if he did the registry tweak, I'm waiting to hear back.
The MS article: Windows 7 and Samba 3 interoperability My question is: He seems to be under the impression that Samba 4 is required to work with W7, but that M$ article seems to contradict him. Has anybody got W7 working with Samba 3 as a PDC like in XP and Vista? I can't find any FAQs about this.
I have setup an dhcp server wich allows ICS, and a samba server as a PDC. I can access the shares from windows if I type the server Ip (ej. \192.168.0.1), however if if write the address (ej. \dbaserver) I cannot access them.If I type ping dbaserver on a command prompt, it returns 127.0.0.2 not 192.168.0.1, what could be wrong. I asume because of this I cannot join the domain also.
I set up a Samba server on my openSuSE 11.2 machine and I can connect to it locally with the local ip and with my actuall ip. My friend however cannot. I tried to have him ping my ip and that wouldn't even work. I'm confused and wondering why it doesn't work. We share a lot of files and this would make both of our lives much easier.
I have the problems with transfer speed between samba and Windows XP clients.
Samba server configuration: Quad Core 6600 CPU. 4 Gb RAM OpenSUSE 11.2 with kernel "22.214.171.124-0.1-desktop" Samba - samba-3.5.1-1.1.i586 Test: 4 GB File copying. One file.
Transfer speed from Samba Server to Windows 7 and XP clients: (Windows clients copy file from Server share -> to local drive) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 85-90 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 90-100 Mb/sec From Server to XP1 client 3 75-100 Mb/sec
Transfer speed from Windows 7 and XP clients TO Samba Server: (client copy file from local drive -> to server Share) From Server to Windows 7 client 1: 12-20 Mb/sec From Server to Windows 7 client 2: 30-35 Mb/sec From Server to Windows XP client 1 20-27 Mb/sec
(Copying file from Windows local drive to Windows remote share) From Window 7 client 1 TO Windows XP client 1 40-50 Mb/sec From Window 7 client 2 TO Windows XP client 1 50-60 Mb/sec
Copying file from Windows 7 client 2 share -> TO Windows XP client 1 show me 100-120 Mb/sec speed permanent. Copying file from Linux hosts to NFS server is stable 50-90 Mb/sec bidirectional.
This part of my smb.conf file Code: # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global] log level = 1 debug level = 0 max log size = 50 .....
I have very slow write speed when copying file from Windows clients to Samba Share. Samba speed is slower than Windows native clients connections ?
I have configured a samba server where I have configured it for /mnt dir to be exported/shared. When I verify this share, I see mnt dir but I want the content inside the mnt to be visible or chroot into mnt directly.
I'm trying to set my openSUSE desktop up to use the printers on my office network via Samba. I managed to get it working in 11.2 but 11.3 is giving me some trouble.I am able to access the printers and use them but I have to enter my network credentials each time I print. In 11.2 I was able to "save" my username/password and was not required to do this. Are there any Samba packages I need to add in addition to the basic ones? There seems to be a lack of documentation on this particular subject, most is concerning Windows clients printing on Linux print servers.
Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to GNU/Linux (openSUSE as server for GNU/Linux clients) I managed to set up a DC with roaming profiles for the few remaining Windows users, user validation and login for the openSUSE boxes and a few network shares with different rights. I know there are no roaming profiles for GNU/Linux and I can live with that but I would like to specify wich users/groups would have their home directories saved locally (notebook users) and which will save them on the Samba server.
By default home directories are saved locally but somehow Samba creates a minimal home directory for each user under /home in the Samba server. How can I tell the client box to use that directory? and how can I set up the few notebook users to save it on their disks? Maybe using the options under Yast > Security... > Users and groups management > Users (LDAP Users filter) > and then select the user and use the "Manage Samba account parameters" plug-in for specifying the different paths cant achieve this.
I have an openSUSE 11.2 and I was trying to connect to a FTP server from Dolphin application but it didn't work. (I used ftp://<IP ADDRESS> in the address field) From CLI or using FileZilla I can connect to that server.
Upgraded two machines to 11.3 in the past 2 weeks. NFS is broken on both, in different ways. The problem I'll mention here is that the nfs server is running, but clients can't connect.
The server is running: tinderbox:~ # /etc/init.d/nfsserver status Checking for kernel based NFS server: idmapd running mounted running statd running nfsd running
It has a valid export list: tinderbox:~ # showmount -e Export list for tinderbox: /usr/local/share/common 192.168.1.0/24
The export exists: tinderbox:~ # ls -lR /usr/local/share/ /usr/local/share/: total 4 drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 Jan 2 12:10 common
/usr/local/share/common: total 0 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 2 12:10 test.txt
But attempts to mount the export are unsuccessful, both from the local machine: tinderbox:~ # mount.nfs 126.96.36.199:/usr/local/share/common /mnt -v mount.nfs: timeout set for Sun Jan 2 12:14:19 2011 mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'addr=188.8.131.52,vers=4,clientaddr=192.168.1.200' mount.nfs: mount(2): Connection timed out mount.nfs: Connection timed out
...and from an OpenSUSE 11.0 machine. moira:~ # mount.nfs 184.108.40.206:/usr/local/share/common /mnt/tmp/ -v mount.nfs: timeout set for Sun Jan 2 11:52:17 2011 mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=220.127.116.11' mount.nfs: Unable to connect to 18.104.22.168:111, errno 110 (Connection timed out) mount.nfs: mount to NFS server 'rpcbind' failed: timed out, giving up
I've had NFS running on my local network for over a decade, and never had problems like this before.
until 2 weeks ago I had o.S11.3 on both my Siemens and Asus laptops. I have installed NX No Machine. ( I know it's not open source,I am using the free version). With commandline ( root) /usr/NX/bin/nxclient I was able to connect to the other machines. I got Qt: Locales not supported on X server, the NX menu popped up and I was able to connect by inserting resp codes. After fresh install of o.S.11.4 on the ASUS the commandline (root) answers:
xlib: connection to":0.0" refused by server xlib: No protocol specified nxclient: cannot connect to X server:0.0
The ASUS can still be reached from the other machines (one with o.S.11.3,the third one with o.S.11.2 ) SSH ( Lan)connections are all working forth and back between the machines, even to and from Win XP, however only from Win 7 on the ASUS, but that's a Win7problem. Comparing the installed xorg-x11- server-extra : on o.S. 11.3 Additional X servers ( Xmdx,Xephir,Xnest,Xvfb ) ,on o.S.11.4 the Xvfb is missing, might that be the reason?
So a while back I was able to mount a directory from my OpenSuse server as a NFS on an Esxi server. After restarting the Esxi server, the NFS became inactive and I was unable to remount it. The error given was that the Esxi client was unable to connect to the Suse server. I was looking into the showmount -a command on the Suse server and it showed the mount point on the Esxi server. Could this be causing the Suse server to reject new attempts to mount the directory? What else can I try to fix this problem? Also I should note that both servers can ping each other.
I'm looking for an easy guide to connect to my home network with Fedora 12. So far I did what I thought was pretty straight forward but I'm not seeing any computers. Here is what I've done
yum install samba restart system settings -> advanced -> samba
I set up my two paths that I wanted to be shared when I go to network in Dolphin I'm seeing Network, Network Services and Samba Shares If I click on Network nothing shows, same with Network services, samba shares shows nothing and the bottom reads "unable to find any workgroups on your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall"
There are two workgroups which my Ubuntu machine shows fine, workgroup and mshome, I can connect to my roomates and my girlfriends computer no problem within Ubuntu (they are running XP, Vista and Ubuntu).
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
The Fedora machine acts like print and file server.But the problem, its the conection time.When i start the machine with fedora, takes like five or more minutes to appear in "My network places" in the windows machines, and if the server dont appear, i cant print and browse in the server files with the windows machines.I can browse in the internal network files (Windows folders) from fedora all the time, i have internet conection and with the internal network all the time, but the server just dont appear in the network places in the windows machines when i just start the server.
I check the samba status when i start (in the terminal), and its running.And i have a control program called "Control of Ciber", this program connect with the "Slaves" terminals and the conection appear in the server, but when i just turn on the server, the machines appear offline, and they connect after the same time taken for the server to appear in "My network places" in windows.I dont know if have a relation, but i cant open the share folders of the fedora machine in the windows computers, a error dialog appear (Privileges problem), and i just cant see the files in the folder.I give administrator privileges to everyone in this particular shared folder (Chmod 775), and i put the "Security = share" in the samba file. This issues dont happen in debian or ubuntu with the same configuration
I am trying for the last many days to setup my opensuse 10.3 as Samba PDC Server according to the URL mentioned below, but in vain:How to setup SUSE 10.3 as Samba PDC - openSUSE When ever I try to join a Windows XP machine to the domain setup on Opensuse, I get the error:'The following error occured while attempting to join the domain. The network path was not found'. What could be the reason for this error despite of the fact the I am able to ping the FQDN of the PDC from the XP machine, but the XP machine simply denies to join the domain because of the above mentioned error.
Installed a security update for samba tonight via Opensuse updater.Now, when trying to access my home network an authentication box pops up (never used to)Asks me to enter authentication for my home network.I enter my username and password and hit enter. After a few seconds the authentication box pops up again askingfor the same indicating I have entered the wrong username / password combination (which I know I have not).
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."
