I want to setup a SSL encrypted WebDAV share on my OpenSUSE 11.4 server that is accessible from the internet. Everything is working fine when using Windows XP or Linux clients, but a connection with Windows 7 is not possible ("the selected folder is not valid").
I already searched for a solution to this problem I tried several setups: - with and without encryption - with Basic authentication - with Digest authentication - without authentication
I did not have success so far. Is there any solution to this (except not using Windows 7)? Or can anyone confirm that this should be working (and maybe my configuration is messed up)?
I have a WebDav (davfs2) mounted in /home/myuser/mydavmountI would like to prevent updatedb from indexing the content of the mounted drive. I tried editing /etc/updatedb.conf and setting the following:
Code: PRUNEPATHS="/tmp /var/spool /media /home/myuser/mydavmount" also tried these:
I have a WebDAV folder (complete folder hierarchy in fact) currently managed by SAP's KM module. Long story short: it's in Windows, it's slow, I hate it.
I want to migrate the hole tree to my brand new Ubuntu Server 10.04 with a functional WebDAV server I just finished configuring. It connects to LDAP for user authentication, it's fast, it works like a charm.
Do you guys know any way I can transfer/migrate files from the Windows WebDAV to to Ubuntu WebDAV? The only thing that is important to keep is file security properties. Both WebDAVs have the same user database: our corporate Active Directory.
I'm working with a program that uses Open Motif to create all of the widgets, including the Open File dialog box (obviously). However, Open Motif being kinda old-timey, 80's vintage, and for the most part now an abandoned project, it is quite clunky. So, actually what I need to do is to open some files located on my work server. I have already successfully connected to the relevant server directories with Samba, and with programs built with GTK+ (such as GIMP) I can open files across the network because I have created a bookmark in Nautilus, and those bookmarks appear in the Open File dialog box created by GTK+. Now, Open Motif is different: it doesn't see network locations, orNautilus shortcuts. When I type "smb://serveripyadayada" in the search folder, it really doesn't like it and complains. So, what do I do? Can I get somehow Open Motif to open a network location? Or can I do a run-around and place a shortcut in the file system that points to the network location?
I have an opensuse server which handles 5-8 sites, a mail server and a nameserver.I will move it to a new location and I'll have a different IP. Now, I didn't configure the server myself, so I don't know what to do so that the mail server, the sites and the nameserver to work in the new location with a new IP.
Does it suffice to change the IP of the nameserver from my domain registrar? What any other modification I'll have to do in order for the mail and sites to work at the new location?I searched tutorials on moving a server to a new location but I didn't find any...
I have an install of OpenSUSE (11.4) and I'm running vsftp. We have several companies already running scripts on their end to pull all the files out of a mounted Windows share, then delete the contents of that folder. What I'm needing to do is after the files are dropped on a mounted Windows share, I need to somehow connect to an FTP server at another location, send all the files from that Windows share, and delete all the contents from that share. And on top of that, I would like to have this happen everytime a file is placed in the folder or at regular 2 hour intervals or something like that. Can someone point me in the right direction to learn how to do this. I'm fairly familiar with OpenSUSE but this is beyond my knowledge, for now.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Ubuntu v10.04 with a wireless card.My desktop is a Dell Optiflex running WinXP.The desktop is connected via ethernet cable to a Linksys wireless router. Certain folders on the desktop are set for sharing. Up until early last week I was able to access the desktop folders from the laptop with no issues.Suddenly I am now getting this error "Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share" whenever I try to access the desktop folders from the laptop.I suspect an upgrade is the culprit, but not sure.
i'm trying to connect to the three other machines in my house but am having quite a hard time doing so. i've never had a problem in the past with ubuntu, but, with 9.1 and windows 7, things have gotten a bit harder. i'm running 9.1 and my roommates are running windows 7. i've installed, set up and configured samba and i can see the computers on my network, but any time i try to access either of the drives, it says unable to mount location: failed to mount windows share.
I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my friend's laptop. The biggest problem is getting his iPhone 4 to mount. On libimobiledevice.org it shows a cool video of a guy managing his iPhone with Linux thanks to libimobiledevice. libimobiledevice.org also says libimobiledevice supports the iPhone 4. But when he plugs it in, he gets an error that says:
Quote: Unable to mount location: Unhandled Lockdown error (-5) It's a serious issue and needs to be resolved ASAP. ***EDIT*** If this is a hardware topic, any mods can feel free to move it.
I've tried to get an opensuse box I have to share a directory via NFS. I've failed each time, but I thought that the third time, I'd enlist some help from the forums, if I could. how do I know that the nfs server and not the client is the problem? Short answer is: I don't! That's why nfs (and many netwrk problems) are laborious, you're troubleshooting needs to take place at both source and desitination. Next question, what do I have set up so far? Well, I did download the nfs server kernel stuff (two months back) and /etc/init.d/nfsserver start seems to get set up OK. No errors and the daemons nfsd, idmapd, mountd area all running. So, I *think* that part is OK. I have the share set up properly in /etc/exportfs and have "exportfs -r" it.
OK, now onto the trickier stuff: the client and iptables. On the client pinging to the nfserver box is perfect, and I have rpcbind running. the reported error is "mount.nfs: mount system call failed" though from experience nfs errors don't mean a whole lot.However, I will go off and check now and see if I need a mountd running on client-side too.Then there's iptables .... ouch, that could be a long and painful trek. I don't see any specific ports being blocked, and it's the iptables that the default v11.2 opensuse came with. I did turn them off and the problem was the same, so whether wishfl thinking or not, I'm hoping it's not an iptables issue.
I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop ame of folder"
My smb.conf file looks like this:
That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.

I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
I have a problem in my ubuntu 10.01 that it can't load a drive/volume in ubuntu. When I tried, it said: "Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock". And when I boot my pc with 'Windows', it said : "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" under a blue screen. What can I do to solve this problem?
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I am attempting to setup a network to network VPN tunnel between our main office and a temporary location. This location need full VPN access back to the main office's network.Anyhow we have spent about 3 solid days attempting to make this work without any great success. Here is our network scheme for these two devices.
Network A (Main Office) (OpenBSD using isakmpd) Network: 172.16.8.0/24 External IP: 188.8.131.52 (obviously not the real IP)[code].....
I have some shared folders on my laptop, most of which I can access from any other machine in the house. But one returns an error every time from any PC. I open the Places menu, select network, choose the machine and get a set of shared folders. But when I try to open this one I get an error message "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows Share". All the machines are running Ubuntu 9.04 or better. No problem with any other shared folder, and the permissions are the same for all.
I worked around it by creating another folder, copying everything across, and sharing it with the usual perfect result.
I am having problems sharing my external hard drive.
It is plugged into my Ubuntu LTS media centre computer and is just a standard USB Seagate HDD. It works fine when I access it from the same computer it is plugged into, both in Ubuntu and Windows machines.
I have set it up as a shared resource using the shares-admin app and at the same time, shared the home folder of that machine. I can access the home folder fine from my laptop over the network but when I try to access the external HDD, I get the following error msg: 'Unable to mount location - failed to mount Windows share'.
My laptop has the same OS as the media centre - Ubuntu LTS 10.04 Lucid. I am trying to access the share via Places > Network. I'm not sure why it comes under Windows shares because neither machine has Windows on. The network is a Wi-fi home network.
I am using opensuse11.2 but noticed that I am unable to view the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Checked the contents of mnt directory as well as the media directory but they do not contain anything. I would like to know how to view the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Also i would like to know how to erase the contents of a rewritable dvd once it is inserted into the tray. Is it build into the OS that we can erase the contents of the cd once it is inserted. Please help me as to how I can view the contents of the cd once it is inserted and also how i can erase the contents of a rewritable cd once it is inserted and mounted.
i try install fedora 10 from cd live. But i can't. the partitions are unable to mount. i recive a message:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error. No Reply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
And from windows boot, and works. why no mount if the live-cd did this?
I have two Windoze 7 laptops (i know, i'm evil) one Windoze Vista desktop, one Android 7" tablet, one Windows mobile 6.1 PDA and one Ubuntu 10.10 laptop. everything can read and write to everything except for the Ubuntu machine. i Can't see the Ubuntu machine from windoze or the droid, and like wise, my windoze and droid can not see the Ubuntu laptop. I keep getting the error "UNABLE TO MOUNT LOCATION", "Failed to retrieve share list from server."
this is what I have tried. Followed about 20 videos on you tube (to no avail.) Edited my smb.conf file (to no avail.) Uninstalled then reinstalled samba (to no avail.) Smashed my head into the screen several times (to no avail.)I was able to get 9.10 & 10.4 working O.K. But 10.10 has got me stumped. I did a search through this forum, but nothing seems to work. I don't restart Samba, I restart the laptop (better?)

I'm trying to mount my NAS device via NFS with suse 11.1, but up to now it failed. The NAS does support NFS, but it requires a UID and a user name and up to now I could not figure out the correct nfs mount options for that.
If I just make mount 192.168.0.2:/nas1 /mnt a get the error message "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.0.2:/nas1". So can somebody please tell me the correct options for user name and user id which the mount should use. And, preferable the correct entry for the etc/fstab file to make this mount being executed automatically during startup. I studied the mount(8) and nfs manpages several times, but I do still have no idea how to make it.
I am running OpenSuSE 11.3. I cannot mount an export from a Redhat 9 NFS server.I am able to mount the export from RHEL5, Ubuntu, Fedora, Solaris but not OpenSuSE 11.3. This is the command I use from a Ubuntu Karmic box.
mount server:/exportdir /mnt -o vers=3,proto=udp
As I said it works from many other distros, but not sure why no go on this one. Can anyone explain this? Should I submit a bug? I noticed portmap is not used anymore and am wondering if thatmay have anything to do with it. The rpcbind is supposed to handle this from what I read..not sure if this is accurate.
I've just upgraded to 11.3 (64 bit) and the nfs client does not quite work. I have 3 mounts I try to make, and 2 out of 3 work. The third seems to mount, but shows an empty directory. There are no errors in /var/log/messages on the 11.3 client or the server. The only difference between the 3 mounts that I can see is that the failing mount is of an xfs system. The other two happen to be ext3. Is that visible to the nfs client? Or is that a red herring? I can still mount all 3 just fine from my other opensuse 11.2 systems.
For info, the server is running opensuse 10.3... Code: nas:~ # uname -a Linux nas 184.108.40.206-0.2-default #1 SMP 2008-12-18 10:17:03 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
