Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Machine Does Not Appear At All In Windows Network/workgroup
Aug 23, 2010
`I'm on 10.04 trying to access shares on a windows machine. The machine does not appear at all in windows network/workgroup. I can see these shares when I'm on my windows partition so I know the problem isn't with the network.
I am running Fedora 12 as a Guest OS using Vmware Player. My host OS is Windows 7 Pro. I have no problems connecting to the internet with Fedora 12 using Firefox as browser. My problem is that I can't connect to my home windows network "Workgroup" I am using NAT and dhcp for IP. When I checked the network device tab it shows eth0 non active. Hardware tab shows eth1. I tried to activate eth0 by using "ifconfig eth0 up " it returns no such device. I then tried "ifconfig: and it returns eth1 and lo but eth0 was not there. Host network adapters shows 2 virtual adapters ...WMware vmnet1 and vmnet8. What should I do next?
I had run one script in unix machine and want to copy the results to a windows machineBoth the machines are on different networksIn linux machine trying to do the ftp to the windows machine its giving connection refused. How to chech whether ftp is running on that linux machine or not?Also tried scp and ssh , both are failing
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, and am getting the following error when I attempt to access the HADEN workgroup on my Windows network via Samba: Unable to mount location - Failed to retrieve share list from server. I ran the following command:
Code: peterv@MBP17U:~$ findsmb sh: /usr/bin/nmblookup: not found *=DMB +=LMB IP ADDR NETBIOS NAME WORKGROUP/OS/VERSION
On my Windows XP machine, I can see the Ubuntu directory and can access files on it. I just can't access the Windows workgroup from Ubuntu.
i was trying to create a share in ubuntu.went to smb.conf and joined a workgroup but the name i gave for it was wrong..i fixed it later on..but the name of the workgroup won't go from the network..How can i delete the workgroup from the network?
I need to reinstall the samba directory, mainly to get the default smb.conf. It appears I have to remove smbclient, which takes ubuntu-desktop with it (which I now know is mostly ok). Hopefully reinstalling those will then replace /etc/samba. There's enough troubleshooting samba threads out there for the rest. I'll flag this solved when I'm done.
I am working on setting up BackupPC on Maverick , for my network. I am unable to view my WinXP machine's shares if I type "sudo smbclient -L //JonDoe/" . However it works if I use the XP machine's IP "sudo smbclient -L //192.168.1.100/". Viewing the workgroup (with the proper name) in Nautilus only shows the Ubuntu machine. I ended up using multiple how-tos which had me install the following packages : Samba, smbfs, system-config-samba.
With all that nothing worked so I decided to uninstall the above with "remove completely" in synaptic, expecting everything to be completely gone. But /etc/samba with smb.conf still existed so I deleted it. OOPS!!! . Installing Samba after the uninstall did not create a new /etc/samba/ directory. Reinstalling smbclient in synaptic didn't create it either. Uninstalling smbclient with pull BackupPC with it. Sweet! I do have a firewall package installed which allows outgoing but blocks inbound traffic from outside my LAN. I will disable it when I get home.
I am using an Ubuntu 64 bit desktop. I need to create a network (the way you create a workgroup in windoz). I have two other machines running Ubuntu also and all connected to a 3-Com switch through ethernet. I would prefer not to use DHCP, and just have a simple network where I can share resources like drives and printers.
I have two types of OS in my network windows (XP,7) and linux (debian 5.03, ubuntu 9.10 8.04, fedora 8) all of linux can see an reach the windows shared folders but windows can not reach linux shared folders what can I do fo fixing this problem what should I follow. I have to say I disabled all of windows firewalls; and all linuxs can reach each other shared folders. (My network is Workgroup not domain).
So everything seams to be fine on my F10 boxes networking. I can ping computers on the network with both LAN IP addresses, and their hostnames. However, I can only access my F10 box with a LAN IP. In windows, I go to view workgroup computers... only the windows systems. If I go to the F10 system with samba via the IP address it works fine, just can't get to it with a hostname.
I'm wanting a static IP of 192.168.1.22. And on the windows workgroup "workgroup".
I'm new to doing things with linux that are remotely difficult... and well, this has proven to be. I can't work out if this is a SMB problem, general networking...
smb.conf (I've ommited the top info segment due to forum character limit, as well as the SELINUX notes)

I've just recently got my samba confg working with a workgroup. I can view/access/modify windows machines on workgroup just fine. What I can't do is access shares created on ubuntu desktop. My ubuntu machine appears on Windows Workgroup, but denies to Windows users. When I try to create a share using Folder Sharing, I get this returned to me: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.
Here's by samba config file. [global] workgroup = JANSSEN HOME server string = UServer encrypt passwords = No map to guest = Bad User obey pam restrictions = Yes pam password change = Yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Entersnews*spassword:* %n *Retypesnews*spassword:* %n *passwordsupdatedssuccessfully* . username map = /etc/samba/smbusers unix password sync = Yes syslog = 0 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 dns proxy = No usershare allow guests = Yes panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

My interest to be able to join my windows workgroup and be able to work with the windows shares . I am running Fedora 12 in a virtual machine as guest OS. I know I have to install Samba which does not come installed in Fedora 12. Do I need to configure samba after installation if my only interest is to work on windows shares from Fedora and not the other way around? .
I have a home network with Ubuntu (3 PC) Windows (XP 3, 7 1 vista 1) and Lacie networked drive. I have successfully edited fstab to mount the lacie drive at startup on my main ubuntu PC and it works a treat. My problem is setting up the Unbutu PCs to browse the workgroup. This was working but now (since my last update of Unbutu I think) I get prompted for a password and no matter what I do it does not let me browse.
Now I have read a few things on Samba and do not have the time or ability to become a network engineer. All I want to do is is have on my Ubuntu the same browsing ability that seems to come out of the box in Windows.
I am trying to ping my Windows machine connected to an open network (I'm at a internet caf) from my linux VM (also connected to the same network with a usb adapter), but I'm obtaining this output:
# ping 10.23.47.12 PING 10.23.47.12 (10.23.47.12) 56(84) bytes of data. From 10.128.128.1 icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered From 10.128.128.1 icmp_seq=2 Packet filtered
With high probability host 10.128.128.1 is a firewall or some router with packet filtering mechanism; but I don't understand how it can be possible to implement this kind of solution, with what kind of software or hardware? I also tried a nmap scan to my Windows machine but it returns me scan results from another host(the firewall or the router I suppose):
nmap -sS -O -P0 10.23.47.12 Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2011-07-09 15:46 CDT Nmap scan report for 10.23.47.12 Host is up (0.097s latency). All 1000 scanned ports on 10.23.47.12 are filtered
So my questions is, how is technically possible to implement this kind of restriction within hosts connected on the same network? It's the first time I see this kind of configuration.
I have an ubuntu kk laptop connected via wireless to my mixed network (xp, win7, other ubuntu), but i can not ping said machine or connect via ssh. Internet and smb-browsing ON this machine work, as does pinging FROM it. If this was a windows machine, I'd say a firewall is in the way, but since it's a vanilla karmic install, this should not be the case (or should it?).
It seems whenever i create a folder it creates the folder as untitled folder, but i can't change the folder name it just says "you don't have permission to rename item" but yet i created the folder and it is there. One thing i have noticed is that once i enter a folder it won't even let me move the folder.
I have ubuntu-8.04.1-server installed on virtual machine. It works perfect. Now, I made copy of this virtual machine. I started that copied machine and it works fine, except one thing: network does not work! I have several others VMs with freeBSD, openBSD or Windows on it, but only ubuntu machine hes network problem after coping. I tried some other VM with ubuntu on it - same problem! I downloaded VM with ubuntu - same problem.I take a look into /etc/network/interfaces file and it looks just as it should (same as before coping) but ifconfig command returns parameters for lo only (before coping there was eth0 and lo).
I try to access my ubuntu machine via my Windows Machine (Samba Server on Ubuntu Machine). Anytime I try to access the machine it asks me for my password...I enter it but it says it is invalid....is there anyway to reset it? I have already tried to remove and purge everything Samba related and then tried reinstalling, but that still didn't do anything
I am trying to establish the easiest way to share a folder from an Ubuntu machine to a Windows machine.In the past I have added things to smb.conf and that has all worked fine but what I am trying to do is to figure out what the "new user" way of doing this is so that when I am helping other people I know I am getting them to do the simplest thing.I completely removed samba and reinstalled it so that I didn't have any configuration. Right clicked on a folder and selected "Sharing Options" ticked the "Share this folder box" gave it a name and a comment and ticked the other two boxes.
When I went to the windows laptop then it kept asking for a username/password and nothing worked.Back on the ubuntu machine I did sudo smbpasswd -a [username] and created a blank password. Now from the windows machine I can access the shared folder.Is the smbpasswd step still required? It's very confusing for a new user as there is no suggestion that anything other than right clicking on the folder and choosing the options you want would be required. Is it something to do with the fact that this is an ubuntu machine that has gradually been upgraded through versions and this problem wouldn't have been there from a new install?
I have just started using using Ubunu 9.04. I have to manually configure network to connect to the net. Gateway values when entered are not saved, they come back to 0.0.0.0, I am also required to enter workgroup, How do I do it?
I need to access a Windows Server 2000 machine using a Linux machine via KDE, but that will migrate to Gnome. The Linux user to connect to Windows machine, you should open an application 'XYZ' automatically, and only this, denying any unauthorized access. When you close the application 'XYZ' communications (RDP?) Should be terminated. Do I need a log of accesses and possible attempts to circumvent the system and access other application.
I've run into a weird problem. Two of my linux machines (A and B, both running CentOS 5.5) are connected to the same wall ethernet socket via a hub. Bothf them are configured for static IPs. The trouble is that when machine B goes offline or hits a kernel panic, machine 1 goes offline too. What I've noticed is that in this condition the "route" output from machine A does not show any entry for the default gateway either The contents of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 for machine A are:
I mean I assigned the IP: 192.168.1.4 to Linux machine (Eth0). I did everything above and can't ping till now, when pinging from windows or Linux I get a message "destination host unreachable" restarted Linux many times but same result. NETWORK CABLE is working fine I tested it.
I have an OpenSuSe Server configured with DNS, Samba (PDC + WINS), LDAP, Squid All this is in a hybrid scenario with other OpenSuse acting as clients and some Windows 7 also as clients. Everything works perfect. Both systems are able to join and authenticate in the Samba server very smoothly.
My problem is that in my workspace I have several different subnets/VLANS. So I have another OpenSuSe client here that needs to join the domain and authenticate with the samba server, but he just cant find it via the Windows Domain Membership setup screen (where I usually configure the others).
The server can pe pinged, and it does resolv local domain names. It seems the problem is that I have no place to configure a PDC/WINS server in Linux Client. It only asks me for the domain to join, and then it doesnt find it (Im guessing this happens because it cant receive the broadcasts from the server network).
Is there any way to declare the Samba/PDC/WINS server on the client side?
I have a small network,all my machines get their IPs dynamically in 192.168.0.0 network When I ping linux machine fron win7 or win2k8, linux responds. when I try pinging any machine from linux it says "unknown host sierac".
Recently, I created a new linux machine, linux machines can not talk to each other if I dont add their respective ips in the host file, but both of them can be contacted by windows machines through ping or remote desktop.
I am starting a MCSE course and part of it is to create and configure a domain etc etc I have done this and all my windows XP and 7 machines on my LAN are now functioning as part of the domain just great.
Unfortuntely, I have several Open suse machines which are currently not part of the domain yet (they are in a basic Workgroup).
get these computers onto the domain so that a user can log on using their domain credentials and I can apply security policies and what not?
