Slackware :: Dolphin Samba Share Firewall / Saying It Can't Find Any Workgroups On Local Network?

May 12, 2011

I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.

Here is how I set up my firewall.

Code:
iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -s 127.0.0.0/8 -d 127.0.0.0/8 -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
I got the commands from here url.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Server - Cannot Find Network Workgroups

Jun 17, 2010

I just converted our whole office from many flavors of Windows, and windows server 2000 to Ubuntu Server and Kubuntu for desktops. All went beautifully and the staff is warming up to my move(the first think one noticed was that Open Office can ready both older DOC and newer DOCX Word files, which MS Office can't do). The Ubuntu 10.04 Server was a learning experience because I added a lot of things other than just service Samba files(intranet, internal mail server, MySql, etc). Going on 3 weeks and not one problem with printing, incompatible document formats etc! But getting it all working was fun because things make sense and are visible. Windows is fine when things work but when it doesn't it is very mysterious and unfriendly. All was fine except when I tried to install Kubuntu 10.04 on a spare laptop.

It worked perfectly with the live CD and even a bootable persistent version on a flash drive. But when installing a normal HD install, all went well but I can't find the workgroup on the network. I am a pretty much novice so really do not know where to start looking. I can ping the server and internet and the new intranet work on the wireless and wired connections. Just can't see the network workgroup. Where to start looking? or maybe just reformat and start again. I just tried booting from the CD and the USB Flash drive again and both of those work well, just slow. For those wondering if it is a good move, consider what a support relievf it would be to have all your desk machines on the exact same page in terms of security updates and versions, and so easy to keep current. Besides the UI is really pretty cool.

Slackware :: Dolphin Only Opens Samba Shares Using Server IP?

May 10, 2011

Dolphin will only open Samba shares if I open them by typing in smb://SERVER-IP. It also does not show up in the Network section of Explorer under Windows 7. How do I fix this? The only Samba share icon that shows up in Dolphin under Network --> Samba Shares is Workgroup. If I click it it changes smb://workgroup, but then it does nothing and shows no files. Here is my Samba server's smb.conf file.

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP

I am attempting to share a folder from an existing drive that has been formatted in NTFS. I simply right click on the folder, goto share, and I can see the option to share to UNIX and that works with no problems. My question is; why is the SAMBA sharing dialog grayed out?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't View Samba Shares In Dolphin Although

May 31, 2011

Having a bit of a minor issue with samba on Opensuse 11.4 64 bit. My problem is that I can't view my samba shares in Dolphin although I know they are there. If I bring up dolphin using the Opensuse shortcuts to samba I get this

My computers / drives attached to my network should be viewable here yet they are not. However, if I type in the address directly I can view and access my shares.e.g.

Here is a copy of my smb.conf

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Is Not Finding Workgroups

Nov 7, 2010

On my desktop PC I use Kubuntu, and on my laptop i use mint XFCE. I dont, however, seem to be able to get them to see each other via samba. In XFCE I am using Gigolo to browse shares, and dolphin in kde. Both are the amd64 versions.Using gigolo in xfce i am able to mount shares from kubuntu by manually entering the ip and connecting, but no workgroups show up when it searches the network.When I look in pyneighbourhood the workgroup is found but the mounting fails every time.In Kde i see nothing at all in any of my network folders.

Seeing as im not using gnome, and definitely not nautilus, i dont think this applies to me.When I run "smbclient -L ROO-DESKTOP" from my laptop I can see all the shares, and other windows computers on the workgroup.

Networking :: Mounting Samba Shares From Different Workgroups?

Jul 19, 2010

So my brother has a home network that is setup with multiple workgroups (don't ask why - I have no idea and he refuses to change it). Anyways I just installed Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) on my mother's computer and I need it to be able to access the fileserver in her house where her data is stored. The Mint system is part of the default workgroup and can only see one other system in this workgroup.

The workgroup the file server is a part of is called "hobnw", the server's name is "fileserver", and the share I want to connect to is called "TV Shows" How can I connect to this network share on Linux? (I also know the username and password) When I browse the network under nautilus all I see is the default workgroup and no others. All of the Windows systems on the network (Windows XP, Vista, and Win7) all see and can access the file server without issues.

General :: How To Mount Remote Samba Share From Local Host With Multiple Groups

May 6, 2010

I am using mount.cifs to mount a remote samba share (both client and server are Ubuntu server 8.04) like this:mount.cifs //sambaserver/samba /mountpath -o credentials=/path/.credentials,uid=someuser,gid=1000.I mounted a user from local system with username and password with mount.cifs but the problem is that the user is part of multiple groups on the remote system and with mount.cifs I can only specify one gid. Is there a way to specify all the gids that the remote user has?

Mount the remote samba with multiple groups on the local system?Browse the mount from 1) with the terminal since I want to pass some files from samba as arguments to local programs.which runs through gvfs; but the newer gnome does not write to disk the ~/.gvfs anymore so I can't browse it in terminal. And the last solution would be NFS but that means that I have to synchronize the uids and gids on the local system with the ones from the server.

Slackware :: Cannot Print To Printer On Samba Share, Even Though It Is Accessible?

Jan 28, 2010

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.

Networking :: Build Fast Home Network With Domains And Workgroups?

Jan 4, 2010

At home we have a small home network, but it is very slow. I believe it is, because some computers are placed in a workgroup, called WORKGROUP and others are placed in a domain called TUE. The domain is because many of the laptops at our house also have to work on our university, and I can't simply put them in a workgroup.

The reason why I believe it is slow because of this, is because file sharing between the computers in the workgroup goes with 5 MB/s. File sharing between a domain computer and a workgroup computer goes as fast as 160 KB/s. This is the upload speed of our internet here. How to make the connection with the domain computers the same speed as the workgroup computers? I can not simply put the domain computers out of their domain and in the workgroup (as explained before)

Our network looks as follows:

Internet

OpenSUSE Network :: Samba - Windows Share - SVN

Oct 10, 2010

System: openSUSE 11.3, Gnome

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...

OpenSUSE Network :: Samba Share Only Accessible Via IP?

Oct 19, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Share/Mount Hard Drives Over A Local Area Network

Mar 19, 2011

I have a computer, the one I am on now, with Ubuntu 10.10, it should be completely updated... and I can network with other computers, I can access Windows XP and 7 shared locations on other computers, and I can also get Ubuntu on other computers to access this computer's shared files.What I can't do, however, is share my hardrives that are on this computer, I have tried sharing them in /media/ and etc, but it is not working, apparently you have to mount them in some mystical way.

Another problem is getting Windows machines to access Ubuntu computers on the network - which I believe is a Windows problem, so I can figure that out some other time, but importantly, I want to be able to share my hardrives over the network.

If someone can give me some instructions to mounting and sharing hardrives(internal), and even my DVD-Drives, and portable USB devices, would also be fantastic - since, in Windows you can just right click, "share", and it's done.. It is a very useful thing to have, and I don't want to use Windows on this computer anymore, but I have no choice, really, if I can't share my storage to the other computers.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Share A Folder On Samba Network?

Jul 12, 2011

In this post I will give a quick solution for a possible problem with sharing a folder in Fedora 15.I had to spend some time for research and frustration so, hopefully this post will save you from both. If you have Samba installed and configured to share certain folders on your Fedora machine for a Windows network but, they can't be accessed then following might solve the problem:

1. Go to Applications, Other and run FIREWALL

a). go to TRUSTED SERVICES and check SAMBA and SAMBA CLIENT that are located in the list of services
b). click APPLY
c). go to ICMP FILTER and check ECHO REPLY (PONG) and ECHO REQUEST (PING)
c). click APPLY

[Code]...

If your Samba is configured correctly, your shared folder should be available on your Windows network.A little hint: if you don't want other users to use passwords for accessing your shared folder, select SHARE as an Authentication Mode in Samba GUI Configuration Tool, Preferences, Server Settings, Security

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.2 - No Longer Can Access Samba Share

Apr 13, 2010

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).

OpenSUSE Network :: Samba Share Browsing Not Working But Then It Does?

May 31, 2010

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

OpenSUSE Network :: Writing To Samba Share Causes Crashes After A Few 100 MB?

Jul 22, 2010

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.

- Foxconn r10-s3 (includes Atom N330) with 2 GB RAM

Ubuntu :: Setup A SAMBA Network And Share To Windows 7 / OSX?

Feb 10, 2010

running a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop in the living room with a LOT of files. I've tried all week to get this working, and can't tell where the problem is. I want to make a music share that will: Allow guests, but as read-only Allow me to mount in Windows 7 with the user 'thecheeks' Give user thecheeks read/write access to that share

I swear Samba ends up working but maybe the problem is with Windows 7. I looked at the SAMBAWiki Win 7 page and made sure my registry values were what they should have been (and they were).

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Network Share Mounting ?

Oct 8, 2010

I have 2 Ubuntu machines: a desktop in my bedroom, and a laptop.

I have my music shared on my desktop machine, and can access it through the network menu item in the nautilus manager, but I want the files from the share to be mounted on the disk so I can access it through the commandline.

If I right-click the shared folder in Nautilus, it says its location is smb://rob/music

If I do:

mount -t smbfs //rob/music /mnt/music, it tells me that it cant locate rob.

So I try "ping rob" and that doesn't work.

I can't make a hosts entry for rob which happens at this moment to be 192.168.0.8, because my router assigns different IP addresses to various machines at different times, and I cant seem to find a way to make static maps from MAC address to ip address.

So, how come nautilus can see my samba share on the machine "rob", but the mount commands cannot?
