OpenSUSE Network :: XP Pro Share Not Accessible In Explorer
Jun 10, 2010
I have a share accessible from XP. However if I go for lunch and come back when I click on the share in Explorer it says its not accessible. When I click on it again it works. Its like the network card in the Suse server is going to sleep but I cant see any settings for it. I know where they are in XP and wonder if they are somewhere in openSuse? Or if there is some other explanation.
have a server here running opensuse 11.3 that I need to access via network using samba. Samba is working so far and I can ping the serve and browse the shares from windows (WinXP) computers; but only via the IP.Now I've read up on samba on this forum and other sources, like the official samba documentation and compared my smb.conf with an older one on another server which works (and even copied this one over to the new one) - to no avail.I seem to be missing something and I just can't find it.Since the problem is probably not in the smb.conf (previously working one doesn't work on new server) - where else could I have screwed up?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and Samba 4.The folder I've shared is on NTFS partition and though is visible from other Windows 7 system on LAN, can't be browsed. Even from my own computer if go to network places the folder is there but when I double click on it I get
using OEL 5.4, which uses Gnome 2.16 interface I can see my share from Windows, but whatever I do, I get messages that my share is not accessible. The whole user thing is quite complex, dont understand what user I should use on Windows, what password, what user should have what rights on linux.
I'll post smb.conf tomorrow ... The problem is that Windows lacks any decent error message, stating what kind of error message. Is there no Samba client for Windows?
I have a windows machine on which a printer is installed and configured. This printer is already shared. Now, I have a linux server (RHEL 5.4 x86) in which we have our Oracle Application Instance running. Requirement is to to print reports from Oracle Application erp software to the printer attached to the windows machine. I am trying to configure the printer from linux to print to that printer. I getting the following error: "This print share is not accessible."
I'm running slack64-current.I setup samba to share a printer on my home network. I can print to the printer locally.The printer is visible on the network. However when I try to print anything on the printer via samba (or cups for that matter) from either the local machine or the remote machine, everything acts as if the job went through, but nothing happens. I'm sure I've seen this before on another slack machine that is currently unavailable, but I can't remember what the answer was, and I'm trying to be more precise with this setup so that I actually learn something.

I have Linux installed on one machine with samba running and a second machine running XP. They are going through my router and I am using the same username/passwords for both machines and I have even gone to the point of allowing access to everyone for the share I created and the worgroup in samba is MSHOME just like my XP machine. When I view (or search) my workgroup computers my Linux machine shows up and so do the shares I created but when I try to open them I just get a message that permission is denied and I may not have permission to use this resource. I even tried setting access to the shared folder to 777 but still I can't open this share. Has anyone got any idea of why this is?
We have about four workstations and a server. What we need is authenticating with the server, and when you log on, you should see your own desktip and documents idnependent on which workstation you use. Could this be solved by placing the user's home on a server share?We also need a server share accessible from both Linux, Windows an Mac, readable and writeable, as some prefers to bring their laptops to the office.I've read a little bit about terminal servers, but using the workstations as thin clients sounds like a waste, as they're just as powerful as the server. "Fat" clients sounds better,
I have Samba 3.5.3-61 running on a Fedora Core 13 system. I created a share that is browseable to all systems, and I made sure to create a user account via the smbpasswd utility. When I try to connect to the server from a Windows XP system, I am able to enter the appropriate sharename as well as the username and password.
i have 3 comps(running suse 11.3) and a laptop(running vista sp2). i have installed samba on all suse comps. i have a printer attached to one of the comps and it has been shared also the internet connection on that comp has been shared. all the computers are connected using lan cables through an ethernet switch. i also have a wireless router which is connected to the ethernet switch.
I am able to view all the comps on the network except the laptop running vista. all the desktops are visible on the network and are able to print and share files on the network and also connect to the internet. the laptop running vista can connect to the internet but its not visible on the network and nor can it share files across the network or access the printer.
Q: How can I allow my users to mount a cifs share without an entry in fstab in OpenSuse 11.4?
I have an answer myself. Until OpenSuse 11.2 I could mount my samba shares by making mount.cifs and umount.cifs setuid root. Today I installed OpenSuse 11.4. Unfortunately mount.cifs isn't anymore allowed to be setuid due to security concerns. Security is not an issue in my case, so I copied the mount.cifs and umount.cifs from 11.2 to make it work again:
1. Download cifs-mount-3.4.2-18.104.22.168.x86_64.rpm from this repository (I use 64 bit): "http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/" 2. Extract the files mount.cifs and umount.cifs from the rpm and copy them to /sbin 3. Make them setuid root:
Code: linux-y5qw:~ # chmod u+s /sbin/mount.cifs linux-y5qw:~ # chmod u+s /sbin/umount.cifs 4. Mount your cifs shares as a normal user:
I have some problems accessing a smb share by name. Few day ago I was able to access the share by name but seems that today I cannot access anymore. I tried to restart the computer .. but nothing happened. Notice that the dns server is responding and is working correctly.
How can I debug this problem. It's annoying because I don't know all the IP addresses of our internal servers.
I have Ubuntu on one machine and open SUSE on the other. Both connected with an ethernet cable to the same router. Both connect to the internet ok. I did manage to set up 2 machines both running Ubuntu with file sharing but now I have switched one to SUSE I seem to be getting into a mess. Ubuntu sees the SUSE machine but does not open any folders. SUS does NOT see the Ubutu machine. I have looked for a beginners guide to setting up file shaing with SUSE without success. (I like SUSE better because I can use my Audiophile sound card "out of the box")
In the Windows network, there are 2 or more shares as follows:
I can access both shares in nautilus e.g. "smb://bla.bla.company.com/share $". The shares are mounted then in "home/user/.gvfs/". ok.
In one of shares, is a file-based repo, which I can access easily with svn.
Unfortunately when I try to checkout any normal folder from a share (as in MS$ with Tortoise), I fail...
What's more in the file-based repo, external references exist to other shares in the network, the name is as "file:///X:/folder/file.txt". SVN gives error messages about such references and does not access files (where "X:/" is also mounted, but as a "test$ to smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" in "home/user/.gvfs/ ").
My questions: - what is the best solution to mount shares, so I can access all the SVN repos? - How can I access normal files and folders from a share with svn? - How can the problem with external file references in a file-based SVN repo can be solved? without to checkout/commit files "manually"... - Some checkouted scripts (Perl, etc.) use libs from shares: "Use lib qw(r:/tools/perl/lib/). how to get around this as well? - How can I change mount-names: "test$ on smb://bla.bla.company.com/test$" to something like "share-test$? - How can I change the mount location? in "home/user/SAMBA/" instead of "/home/user/.gvfs/"..
I had tried to use "fuse-smb": installed, created config, but when I run "fusesmb /home/user/SHARES/", i get an error message: smb.conf is missing.. Where can I get this config?
And one last question: Can someone recommend me a svn-gui? i have tried tried rabbitcvs, esvn and some others .. but all either do not work or crash.
I'm not sure, but maybe I can use svn and tortoise in wine, and checkout/commit the necessary files from/to "home/user/project/"? there raises the questions whether it is possible to install tortoise in wine and how to mount the shares on the wine? How to manage the hard-coded lib-names in some scripts...
I'm using openSUSE11.0 in VirtualBox 2.2 on XP so files need to be shared between it and the host. But do I have to mount the share folder every time? Here's what I typed in terminal: sudo mount -t vboxsf share /media/share // the first share is the folder in the host, and it works for each time How could I set it once and for all?
I have a windows machine (in a domain) and I have created 2 Virtual Machines with Suse 11.2 installed on them.Now, I want to share a folder in windows to both Suse images. I am succesfully able to do that.I used: mount -t cifs -o user..... command to mount it at /mnt/win on my linux and succesfully able to work with it.
Now, I want a user in my Linux box (both Linux images)to be able to write to the shared folder in windows (actually both linux images will write to the shared folder but it is based on acquairing locks and releasing them to be able to use the shared folder on windows).
I tried etc fstab and lot other options but my efforts were in vain.Simply put - I need a user in my linux box (suse 11.2) to be able to write to a windows shared folder.
figure out how to share the folder to only special user? For example I have two computers host1 with users: user1, user2, user3 and host2 with same users: user1, user2, user3, how to share test user2 folder form host1 to only user2 from host2 ? My system is openSuse 11.1. There is all Ive understood:
host1 [test] inherit acls = Yes path = /home/user2/test (drwxr-xr-x) read only = No guest ok = Yes read list = user2 valid users = user2 admin users = user2 host2 mount t cifs //host1/test /home/user2/test
It works but either user2 from host2 cant write to test share on host1 (drwxr-xr-x) OR all can write in this share (drwxrwxrwx). Ive googled it, searched here and read this: Chapter16.File, Directory, and Share Access Controls, but without successes.
I have a samba server on my LAN. It can be accessed without any problems from Windows machines on the LAN without password. I have two computers that I have updated to OpenSuse 11.2 (both used to run 10.3). Since doing this upgrade I can no longer access the samba share from the Suse machines. Basically, both Dolphin and Konqueror ask for a username and password to access "avoca" (the workgroup).
My samba seems to be mis-configured somehow. I had been using Ubuntu 10.04 and my samba browsing of my samba shares on my HTPC (running XBMCLive) had all been working fine. Then I upgraded to openSuSE 11.2 64bit. Great OS by the way!Ok so I chekced my other PC's running Ubuntu and going to the network folder I see my XBMCLive machine. Double click him and now I see my shares on that PC. So now I know its specific to my SuSE install.
Now on SuSE if I use Dolphin file manager and go to Network -> Samba Shares -> workgroup I dont see anything. And then down the bottom of the window I will see timeout error on workgroup. "workgroup" is the correct workgroup. All the services are running winbind, smbd, nmbd, xinit, swat. Firewall disabled.However when I try the above and I get the timeout error I then go to the address bar in Dolphin where it has smb as the drop down item and in the text field type in the XBMCLive PC ip address and hit enter. Then immediately I can see my shares!!! So it is working but I cant see my shares under Network->Samba Shares->workgroup.I notice in my samba error logs for log.smbd I keep seeing this;smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use
If this is the right forum i don't know, but I'm having a problem which crashes my home server when writing to Samba. Googling and a quick search in this forum didn't help me any further. Is there anyone with a clue what to do?When I write several hundreds MB to my Samba share from a Windows machine the machine crashes (both with Win XP and Win 7). The problem is reproducible, although the precise moment (about 1 minute) or amount transfered data varies (about 300 to 800 MB). Small writes go well.Reading about 5 GB from Samba to Windows went without a hitch.

I'm trying to share two folders via NFS. First I share /media/disk/, that works fine and mounts on a remote computer as expected. Then I try to also share /home/Videos/ but when I add this folder to my /etc/exports I can't mount any of the shares. I have tried to both do it on command line and with the Yast tool but the result is the same. I have checked permissions on both folders and they are the same. Also if I try to share only /home/Videos/ it won't mount either. What am I doing wrong?
I'm needing Internet Explorer 7-8 to access 1 web site (there had to be one and I need to access it.) I have installed the ies4linix which has successfully got Explorer 6 working, but the beta for 7 doesn't work. The Explorer 7 opens up fine, the world spins around and at the bottom of the page the solid blue gets half way and stops. I don't know what to do next. Has anyone successfully got Explorer 7 or 8 working on 11.1? If so can you let me know how you did it?
I have 2 laptop with opensuse 11.2. One of them is connected to the Internet through a Mobile Connection with a CDMA/EDVO modem on the usb port. I want to share the Internet connection with the other laptop through the WiFi interface of each of them. How should I proceed?
We recently moved to a new home and I am trying to get my home file/print server set up again. Thanks to swerdna's excellent website, I got my server box (just upgraded from 11.0 to 11.2) running Samba and serving my shares over the network, and my "client" machines can access them without a problem.However, I'm not having much luck setting up CIFS mounts on my Linux desktop. I have my all-purpose user added to the Samba auth list (via smbpasswd), and configured my client as swerdna's howto's specify, and I can access the files just find. However, when I try to mount the shares with this command:
Code: mount -t cifs -o username=klein,password=klein //192.168.1.70/sharedmedia /home/zak/SharedMedia/ I get the following error:
