Red Hat / Fedora :: Windows Cannot Access Samba Directories?

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to set up samba on my CentOS Linux 5.5 server, and I've gotten to the point where the Windows Sharing Center recognized the server, can even connect to it with credentials, but when I try to access a directory, I get this Message:Code: Windows cannot access \HOMEpublicCheck the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. Try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose. When I click diagnose, it does not fix the issue.This happens with any directory I create. I chmod the directories to 777, so I don't see the problem with permissions.

This is my config file. (smb.conf):
Code: # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed

Ubuntu :: Samba - Get The Correct Default Permissions When Users Create Directories Through Windows?

Apr 1, 2010

I've got a small issue that when a Windows user creates a new folder through Windows Explorer (from the menu or by right clicking) the new folder is only accessible to that particular user. Example: user SABKAR (member of the HR group) creates a new folder called MarcTestMenu in a shared Samba directory through Windows Explorer:

[Code]....

At this point user MORAMY cannot copy a file or open the directory MarcTestMenu. MORAMY gets a 'not accessible' error message in Windows. If I su to the Samba box and issue this command:

[Code]...

how I can get the correct default permissions when users create directories through Windows?

OpenSUSE Network :: SAMBA - Changing Default Permissions On Files And Directories Created From Windows Clients

Mar 9, 2010

I have a fileserver running openSUSE 11.2 and samba services for file access from MS Windows based workstations. My question relates to changing default permissions on files and directories created from the windows clients.

Following are extracts of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file :

Even with the above entries, sometimes there are files and directories created by the windows clients having permission

Probably my lack of understanding in ACLS.

Fedora Servers :: Samba Will Not Open Up Sub-Directories?

Nov 7, 2009

I have it set right now to be open so that there's no need to type in username and password information. It works great. I can type \*IP Address* on my WinXP laptop while on the network, and it brings me to the Public folder that I'm trying to share. But, when I click on the folder to open it up, it just sits there and eventually will give a userid/password prompt or will give me an access denied error.

Here is my smb.conf:
#SMB.CONF

Fedora Servers :: Setting Directories (But Not Contents) As Read Only In Samba

Apr 8, 2011

So I finally managed to get my Samba file server working () but now I have a question. On the server I have 4 folders, each being used for a certain topic. How would I set the folders as read only but not the contents, so that way remote users can read/write to the folder but can't delete or rename the folder itself? Also, if I restart the Linux box it will cease to show on the Windows Network unless I delete the Samba share and remake.

Red Hat / Fedora :: SELinux Is Preventing The Samba Daemon From Reading Users' Home Directories

Sep 1, 2010

My Fedora box is giving me an SELinux security error:

Code: Summary:

SELinux is preventing the samba daemon from reading users' home directories.

Detailed Description:

SELinux has denied the samba daemon access to users' home directories. Someone
is attempting to access your home directories via your samba daemon. If you only
setup samba to share non-home directories, this probably signals an intrusion
attempt. For more information on SELinux integration with samba, look at the
samba_selinux man page. (man samba_selinux)

Allowing Access: If you want samba to share home directories you need to turn on the
samba_enable_home_dirs boolean: "setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs=1"

Fix Command:

setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs=1

Additional Information:

Source Context system_u:system_r:smbd_t:s0
Target Context unconfined_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0
Target Objects /home/micah [ dir ]
Source smbd

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Access Samba Server Using Windows XP/7

Mar 4, 2011

I cannot access my Ubuntu samba server using windows XP or 7. I keep getting prompted for a username/password. I have created both a unix username with password and a samba username with the same password i used for the unix user. When windows prompts me for the username/password i give it the same one i created on the samba server, but it still will not take it. I know samba is running because i can view the shares but cannot access them without getting prompted for username/password. I just have the one user for now while i am testing, but there will be more.

I am using Ubuntu Desktop 10.04.

Server :: Cant Access Samba Shares In Ubuntu 10.04 From Windows

Jul 7, 2010

So I setup the newest Ubuntu on my old desktop on a 30g HD and have 2 200G HDs with a ntfs file system on those two. I got SSH and FTP configured, then went on to setup Samba.I have it (seemingly) set up well. /dev/sb1 gets mounted on /data1 /dev/sc1 gets mounted on /data2.I want anyone connected to my router to be able to see this machine and be able to read and write to both shares.

I configured WINS on my laptop to point to the linux box. and i've seen the pc in question (TECH-PC) in "My Network Places" on both of our laptops.Long story short, I try to connect to my network share and it says i don't have permission and i need to contact my network admin. This computer is the only one with Linux installed, the rest are windows-OS.Let me know if you need more info, pretty stumped here, have searched, read, scrapped my install and started from scratch, maybe i need to sleep on it

Software :: Samba Access No Longer Working In Windows 7

Jan 15, 2011

I've recently been experiencing an issue connecting to my Samba shares on a Ubuntu 10.4 server box on my network from a Windows 7 client. If I use Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine, or a Windows XP Virtual Machine running under both Windows and Linux host the share works absolutely fine.

What happens is if I browse to the hostname or the IP address I see a login prompt (there is access control) but my username and password no longer work. Before I didn't need to login as they are the same as my windows credentials.

I'm not sure what information/logs etc would be most relevant so I've posted some information, if any more is required then let me know where to find it and I'm sure I'll be able to get it.

Here is the last few days of the log when I believe it was working, there are no entries since.

Fedora Networking :: Unknown Samba Password - Use Samba For File Sharing Like On A Windows Home Network

Jul 17, 2010

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.

Networking :: Samba Authentication Failures To Access Windows PC From OpenSUSE 11.3?

Aug 16, 2010

So far I've been able to get Samba to connect to the my WORKGROUP and I can see my Vista PC as well as my 3 hdd's but when I try and open the folder, any folder, C$; D$; or E$ I'm confronted with a user name and

password prompt. No user name or password combination that's associated with either machine, openSUSE or Vista will grant me access. Why am I seeing this prompt and what I would really like to know is can it be

disabled all together? Otherwise, what user name and password does Suse want? Do I need to tell Suse in a terminal a user name and password?
