Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To AFP Share From Mac
Jan 27, 2011
I followed these directions: [URL]
But whenever I try to connect from my Mac to my Ubuntu AFP share, I get "invalid username/password". I have the correct username/password entered, so I think there is a configuration step that I can't find.
My laptop has Ubuntu 9.10. It can connect to shares on my XP and Vista computers without issue, but cannot connect to a share on my Windows 7 system. I'm using "Connect to Server" and have tried by both Computer name and IP address. When I click connect, it prompts me for User ID, workgroup and password, however when I enter them, the same prompt comes back a few seconds later and is blank. I don't receive any errors, it just won't connect.My XP and Vista systems can connect to the Windows 7 share, just not the Ubuntu system
I am running Jaunty 9.0.4. I used system-config-samba (gui) to configure Samba. I put myself as a user and tried to map the drive from my local PC. I am unable to map the drive. On windows, I try to connect using a different user and when I select finish, it prompts me again and adds my workgroup before my user name.
I have a Dell PowerEdge 1650 server with 3 NICs in it. I am trying to use one NIC (eth0) to connect to the internet, the second NIC (eth1) to share the internet connection to a LAN, and the third NIC (eth2) to connect to the LAN.
It is running Ubuntu server 8.10
The problem that I'm having is that NetworkManager (version 0.7.0) keeps setting eth2 as the default connection, and then I don't get any internet at all from the server.
My main goal is to be able to share files from the server to computers on the LAN. The secondary goal is to have a virtual machine hosting a Halo server, connected through eth2, so that it can host LAN games. But that is a secondary goal after I get the connections to work.
I've been looking around and finding other people who have done bits and pieces of this, but not the whole thing. I had been hoping to simply use the NetworkManger, but I don't mind editing config files.
Also I can't seem to find any good instructions on editing the /etc/network/interfaces file. The man file is incomplete, and everything seems to point back to the man file.
My Ubuntu Desktop (9.10, 64-bit) VM can't connect to my Windows 7 (64-bit, Ultimate) File Share using Nautilus. I enter "smb://<comuterName>" in the address bar and then it comes up with a password dialog (see screenshot) and then after entering the correct login info, the dialog disappears for a second or two but then reappears again. The dialog always comes back up and the share is never mounted. Connecting from an XP box on the network to the windows 7 share works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine to the windows 7 share using the appropriate 'smbmount' command works just fine. Connecting from the Ubuntu machine (using the nautilus GUI) to the XP box (password protected) works just fine. Then I turned off password protection in Win7, rebooted the win7 machine, and still all of the above tests turned out the same. And the Ubuntu machine still doesn't connect to the windows share using the nautilus GUI, and still displays the password dialog even though no password is required anymore. I tried using smbclient to view the shares, here is the output (not sure if I should be trying something else using the smbclient program):eddie@eddie-ubuntu:~$ smbclient -L eddie-win7 Enter eddie's password: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
I'd like to know how to connect Ubuntu to the windows 7 share using the nautilus GUI. If it's a bug, I'd like to file it (I think it is). But first I would like some direction trouble-shooting to make sure it is in fact a bug. (I think I read elsewhere on this forum that someone connected Karmic to win7 share, so maybe it's not a reproducible bug. But then again, maybe they weren't using 64-bit Karmic...)
I have a share on my home server with all my music in. When I go to a windows PC (Windows 7) and go to network I can see the share, but when I try to connect in ubuntu by going to places>network>windows network. I get the error: "Unable to connect. Failed to retrieve share list from server". However when I try the connect to server option and specify the IP address its fine. I have tried this with the firewall disabled with the same results. I am trying to get my family to use ubuntu and I don't want them to have tp specify an IP address.
I'm wondering if I can get an answer to this oneI'm pretty new to Ubuntu, been using it off and on for a few months now. Right now I'm using Lucid and I have no problem connecting to the other PC's in my house that run Windows 7, however when I try to access them it asks for a password. I disabled the password on the Windows PC, so is it possible to get into them without a pass? If so, how
I can connect & share my dual-boot PC with no problems under WinXPPro using wired or wireless. (I've another thread going trying to get the wireless-n usb adapter to work.) Two questions so I can get the wired shares to work. I want to copy beaucoup files from the Win7 PC to the dual-boot PC. When booting into XP, no problems. When booting into Ubuntu 10.04, nothing. I can see the Win7 PC but can't access it. My two questions then are these.First, is there some switch to enable fire & drive sharing under Lynx as there is under WinXP / 7? Second, how does one set the IPv4 address? Under WinXP it's one address and under Lynx it's another.
I have shared my cpl-300 from my windows 7 machine to my network, so that may print from my linux laptop to it.
Now whenever I go to system -> Administration -> Printing and try and browse for my printer it asks for a username and password any username or password I enter that is on the windows 7 machine gets rejected.
So I tested to see what would happen if you used smbclient to view the shares available from the windows 7 machine, unfortunately it results in another permission error. The funny thing is I can mount a share using "mount -t cifs".
I'm running 10.10 on a pretty fresh install with a brand new system I built especially for Ubuntu.For some reason, I'm beginning to have trouble with accessing my Samba shares from this computer. I have a Windows Home Server also running on my network and I have to be able to access the files on it.At first Nautilus showed "SERVER" in the folder tree when I clicked on "Network" and everything was working great. A couple of days ago my WHS "SERVER" suddenly no longer showed up in Nautilus and I had to mount the WHS server manually (via "Connect to Server...").
Now, today, even that doesn't work. When I try to mount manually I get the error "Failed to Retrieve Share List from Server". I can now no longer access the WHS from Ubuntu at all.Why has my ability to access the Samba shares on my WHS deteriorated over time to the point where I can't access them at all?? Any ideas?I have other systems on this network (Mac and Windows) and none of the others have any problems at all with the WHS. Re-booting WHS and router has no effect. I've changed nothing in my set-up. Is this update related?
My friend is trying to share his clearwire connection with me using Windows ICS. Using network-manager or wicd, I am unable to connect to his share. I am able to connect unencrypted with iwconfig, to the ad-hoc network, and then use dhclient to gain ip address.
I am not able to connect to WPA encrypted share using network-manager or wicd. nm-applet crashes when trying to connect. I am attempting to setup wpa_supplicant, but haven't got it working yet.As usual, the wireless networking out of the box experience in Ubuntu doesn't work. This is extremely frustrating. If Ubunut's goals are to be the default desktop, then these guys need to get wifi that "Just Works"...
My internet is provided by a 3g modem usb. I am sharing the internet connection through my desktop into a router and then to the rest of my Ubunut machines. Currently if I want to file share I have to go into the network manager and change the eth0 settings from shared to dchp automatic and then unplug the cable from the internet port on the router to one of the network ports. Is it possible to add another network card to the main machine and use that exclusively for either internet or file sharing.
I'm running Fedora 13 on my laptop and am trying to share out a folder from a Win7 computer. Folder on Win7 machine is set to allow access to everyone.In Fedora, I have SELinux disable, I've made sure samba is allowed in the firewall, and that the smb service is running. There's no password on the Win7 computer, so in the Windows Share setting on Fedora I just put the username and left the pass field blank.
I've seen some things say all you have to do is go the the "Network" place...but somehow that seems to have become non-existent and I don't know how to get it back.Also, trying to connect to smb://WinShare/Share results in it saying that the server has timed out.
I have ubuntu 9.10 installed with 2.6.31-21-generic kernel and have recently bought a LaCie d2 network NAS to which I am connecting via a Conceptronic C54BRS4A router, but am having problems with connecting to the share drives.
The d2 software is version 1.0.8 and I have configured a share drive <4music>, and a user <myuser> assigned to a workgroup <workgroup> and with readwrite permissions for that drive.
The version of LaCie Network Assistant (LNA) for Linux available for download here url is just 1.1.0, but the CD accompanying the NAS actually contains LNA for linux version 1.4.1 (5). I have installed both versions and the version 1.1.0 does not even find the drives, let alone mount them, so I am using the 1.4.1 version which does seem to work.
On launching LNA 1.4.1 I am asked for password to mount the drive:
�Enter your password to perform administrative tasks. The application 'mount -t cifs '//192.168.0.102/Public' '/home/myuser/mount -lacie/192.168.0.102/Public' -0 user=myuser, pass=mypassword' lets you modify essential parts of your system and both the Public and 4music drives are marked in green as Smb (Windows File Sharing) when connecting as registered user <myuser> with password <mypassword>
When I navigate to smb://d2.local/ I can connect fine to Public drive, but the problem comes when I try to connect to Share drive and I get dialogue box saying �Password required for share share on d2.local� and requiring me to input username, domain, password.
The user <myuser> on my linux box is the same as that configured for d2. The domain field autopopulates with the workgroup <workgroup> I have set up for that user on the d2, and I enter the appropriate password <mypassword>, but the connection is not authenticated.
Running /usr/bin/smbclient -L 192.168.0.102 returns: Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.4.1] Sharename Type Comment Share Disk code....
I'm running Lucid and and trying to get Samba set up to allow sharing files on my network. My problem is that my Windows laptop (Win7) can't see the Linux PC when I click on Network. It only shows my own laptop and my roommate's Vista laptop. However, if I manually connect to the computer (\serenity) it works just fine.
Right now I'm simply using the smb.conf that comes with the package and adding my share info.
When trying to connect to a Samba share, it requires to send the servernetbiosname. Let me try to describe it.At my university anyone has a personal web directory, which is hosted at another university. It's on a SuSE server, shared via Samba. There are several universities on this server, using the same Samba with different NetBIOS names.There is an open Cisco WiFi, anyone can connect. But to use it, you have to use VPN (Anyconnect for example or in my case the module Ubuntu provides).Now my problem is, I can't easily connect to any share on the server (tried several shares from several machine to be sure it's not just me). After trying several variants on bash, I finally figured out, that I have to supply the servernetbiosname to get it to work.Not working:
Trying to figure out if there is a way to connect to a cifs share, and only being prompted for one password? ie using the following:
sudo mount -t cifs //goanna/neddy -o username=neddy,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 /mnt/neddy prompts twice for a password (sudo & the share password). Is there anyway to "catch" the sudo password for the connect? (Long shot!
I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I followed mjmwired's setup instructions of samba and it WAS working. Saw the share and the printer on the linux box. Move files from the linux machine to Vista machine without problems. I can get the share on my linux box using the linux machine.
I can not not search or connect to a share on the Vista machine from the Linux machine.It seems like there is something that has changed on the Vista machine.
I can use smbclient -U name //ip.adresss/"My Place" to connect with no errors, but nautilus will not open the folder. nautilus discovers the computer but not the folder. maybe I need some debugging info from nautilus...
I just installed UNE v10.10 on a new netbook and I guess I've become too spoiled using the Desktop's PLACES->Connect to Server because I can't find where this is in UNE. I'd also like to "bookmark" it so I can single click to connect to "crunch20/netshare2" (I have added ip for crunch20 in /etc/hosts).
I cannot connect to a share on Windows XP machine, because it rejects my password. I'm using correct username and password. When running from console, smbclient's error message is: session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE I can connect to said share from other Windows machine.
I have an Ubuntu server that's part of a Windows domain and requires Kerberos authentication when connecting to its Samba shares.I have an Ubuntu desktop machine that is capable of obtaining Kerberos tickets via kinit and can successfully connect to the Samba share on my Ubuntu server using Kerberos authentication via smbclient.
We have Ubuntu Server for samba share. We have windows xp clients working perfectly as client station.However, we are facing problem in connecting ubuntu client. Can anyone guide me, how to connect ubuntu client to samba share. (Not as root user)
Yesterday I reinstalled my ubuntu 11.04 and now I cant get samba to work. I allso installed Firestarter to get internet connection to my media center pc. In firestarter I have unchecked in the "advanced options" "block broadcast from external network".In my media center pc when I go network connection and view workgroup computer, I cant see my computer at all. If I try to ping my computer then everything is ok.
I am having difficulty connecting to a PC that runs Windows 7 (and suffice it to say Windows XP as well). I go to Places > Connect to Server and choose Windows share from the drop-down list. I enter in the computer's IP address in the Server field and click Connect, when I'm brought to the "Password required for x" screen (x being the IP address). I enter my username for the Windows machine, leave the Domain field as is (it is WORKGROUP by default, which is the Workgroup name for both PCs), and then I enter my Windows password. The dialog keeps popping up as if I entered incorrect credentials. I do want to point out, on the dialog, it asks for a Domain name. Since I do not have this computer connected to a domain (I'm at home), it is a workgroup network. However, prior to Ubuntu 10.10, I was able to use this method to connect to Windows computers.
