OpenSUSE Network :: Set 'password Protected Sharing' To Off On Win7 Computer
Jan 5, 2011
Have followed swerdna's guide as in the past and my wife from her win7 computer can see and has read write access to all the shares & can print to the shared printer attached to the Opensuse computer etc. However, when I try to access her Win7 shares from my opensuse computer I am presented with a username / password prompt. Here is my smb.conf
have followed swerdna's guide (as mentioned previously) and set 'password protected sharing' to off on the win7 computer.
I have installed OpenSUSE 11.4 on my PC. Want to share my files with Win7 system. So far so good, I can access my files on Linux computer from my Windows PC. My problem starts when I want full access to my files, as you see on image it says directory is Public and Writable but still I can't delete or add files to that directory what did I missed ?
Im a long time Ubuntu user (since 5.04), but networks were never my speciality, I have a desktop running 10.10, connected to the internet trough a US robotics modem (connection eth1), and i want to share its network with my laptop running win7, over a cat5 cable (connection eth0), but the problem is I dont seem to understand what i am doing wrong, what the missing steps required, or in which end is the problem (either ubuntu or windows side).
From what I could grasp was needed googling about the subject, i already set the eth0 connection to share with other computers (in network manager edit connections auto eth0 ipv4 configuration set to share with other computers). Also using the cli set eth0 for static ip using :
Code: sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 Now the question is what i am missing? or is everything needed already done and i just have to properly configure the win7 side (which i already checked several times)?
Here is my ifconfig output:
Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet Endereo de HW 00:01:29:a6:55:fe inet end.: 10.42.43.1 Bcast:10.42.43.255 Masc:255.255.255.0 endereo inet6: fe80::201:29ff:fea6:55fe/64 Escopo:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Mtrica:1
Each time I try to just open a password protected archive with Ark it just shows a "Loading file" progress bar, but nothing happens after several minutes. And if I just right-click and select "extract" extracts nothing. It doesn't even ask for the password at any moment. I also checked the help typing "man Ark" in the console, but found nothing related to passwords. Has someone successfully opened archives with password with Ark? Or is it still buggy?
And on a side note, I can open normal .rar files, but cannot compress files. It says "failed to locate program RAR in the PATH". I thought Ark was all self-contained. Do I need to install something else?
I'm running opensuse 11.2 on a Dell laptop with a intel wifi card.
I'm at a hotel with wireless protected by the MAC address. My MAC address is already registered and allowed to connect. However when I connect, the connection hangs just a few minutes and I got disconnected.
I tried to id some problem by scanning it with wireshark, but I did not found anything.
I have BCM4312 Dell wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card.I run Code:sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware to install a firmware and know I managed to see all the networks I have around me, but I can't connect to any of them (using the correct password).
I've looked at all 250 threads that come up when I search "Windows network password" and can't seem to find the answer. On my win7 box, when I try to connect to an Ubuntu share on my ubuntu box, it asks for username and password. I have tried my ubuntu username and password, the windows networking password, and my win7 user account name and password, and I cant get in.
I know that this is easy, but I am confused.I have three computers all with a clean install of SUSE 11.2. Two of them use wifi with the internet and the third is wired.I would like to share files between them all of them.When I go to dolphin/network there is nothing there and I don't know how to set it up.
I just installed suse on this computer, and am wanting to allow other computers to store files on it as a file server. I was reading the online manual and in the personal file preferences, it shows an option to enable 'share public files over network'. The problem is I don't see that option when I open up file preferences. All I see is an option to allow sharing using bluetooth, nothing about sharing over the network. When I look in the network I can see the computer running suse, but when I try to connect to it, it says 'unable to mount drive: connection refused by server.'
This is sort of a weird question.'m helping an agency develop a Microsoft Access database. They use windows and I use Fedora. I can run Access in Crossover Office if I don't get too fancy.I've sent what I've done to them for their review and comments and somehow it has become password protected. I've checked the Access settings and their is no password set from Access. I've tried a chmod666 on the file and sent it to him again and he says it is still calling for a password
I have a bash script that will unencrypt a file, use the unencrypted file for a very short time and then delete the unencrypted file. The problem is that my password is in clear text
Obviously this isn't so secure, but I need the script to be non-interactive. How do I hash, encrypt or otherwise make secure the password for the openssl command? I know that the openssl can protect passwords, e.g.:
openssl passwd -crypt "password"
But can I use this protected password in my script?
i have 2 users on my login window.one of them is password protected, the other is just a single click to login.
1) how can i get the password protected user to disappear but show up under certain circumstances. like, some soft of hidden key combination or the like?
Getting this done isint as important as the second part though
2) when a user logs in, what happens? What file gets executed to start the login processes? I want to know because i would like to make one of the users a guest account that removes all changes upon logoff.
I switched from Windows XP to Ubuntu, I zipped a large number of important files, giving them a CIA-grade password. Is there a WinZip clone available for Ubuntu that will enable me to open those password-protected files? Or can I only do the unzipping on another Windows machine?
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
I have two Suse un-firewalled computers connected via NFS. About a year ago I found instructions for a very SIMPLE way to share a CUPS connected printer using Yast. When I installed 11.4 I lost the instructions. It required no config file editing and took about two minutes. Google searches focus on complicated SMB-Linux connections like those suggested by swerdna.
I created a password-protected .doc file in Windows yesterday using the latest version of OpenOffice (3.2.1)Opening the file worked perfectly; double-clicked the file, OpenOffice popped up and prompted me for the password, then it let me edit the document as usual.Tried it on another computer with Microsoft Word; worked perfectly as wellFor some reason though, it won't work in Ubuntu (10.10). I'll double-click the file, it'll open with OpenOffice and prompt me for the password, but once it opens it's in "Read Only" mode.I tried it on another Windows computer, just to see if it would work, and it did.I right-clicked the .doc file and looked at the permissions: (picture edited for privacy)Every time I tried changing it from "Read-only" to "Read and write" it automatically (and immediately) switched back to "Read-only"
really need to display a full screen webpage with firefox (with flash animations, etc) with some password protection against navigating away, closing firefox, etc.I am thinking that a good solution would be to set up gnome screensaver to display the webpage as it already has the password protection stuff. Anyway, I investigated this idea for a while and is seems that it will not work...As I want to have flash animations onto that page, a solution that captures the screen and passes the picture to gnome is also not suitable.
