Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing And Mapping To Win XP

May 6, 2011

I have 4 computers/users and we need to put all the files on a central server. The server is running Ubuntu 10.04. What is the best way for these 4 XP users to see the files that will be stored on the server?

Or basically, how will I either share or map the files *from* Ubuntu *to* XP? Also, the users will be reading, writing, creating and deleting files on the server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Desktop GUI File Sharing

Feb 27, 2010

I just installed 9.10 and I tried to share specific folders by right clicking and selecting share. Not a problem.

However when I goto a Windows machine I see the share but cannot connect, says incorrect login/ password. I used the same login/ pass for the linux box and I created a new user and I still get the same results. What am I doing wrong?

I want to use the GUI for this please. When I edit the smb.conf I don't see the share.

I have two desktop computers on the same home network and I am unable to share files between the two. Both have access to the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing Setup Using NFS?

Aug 4, 2010

I have tried to set up file sharing using ssh, samba with no luck. I now have it set up using NFS the only thing is it is just one way and I need it both ways. I was wondering if I installed the same packages on the other pc if I could make this work both ways.

The command I used on the first pc was:
sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap
And on the other pc the command was:
sudo apt-get install nfs-common portmap
Or is there a better way?

Ubuntu Networking :: Which File Sharing Protocol?

Nov 30, 2010

I have a small home/office network, which currently consists of a very old mac running osx10.4, a windoze 7 laptop and an ubuntu 10.04/windoze vista laptop, along with a homebrew setup on a wii which understands smb. I'm in the process of setting up an additional ubuntu PC which will, among other things act as a file and web server, mainly for web development and for sharing files, music and videos.

Up until now I've just run everything on SMB, and I will have to set samba up on the new server, but I would prefer to use a different protocol for the ubuntu and mac systems, as SMB doesn't recognise/create file permissions properly and it takes a while sometimes to notice new files in folders it's recently looked in.

Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing Error I've Never Seen?

Jan 4, 2011

I have encountered many problems in Ubuntu, many of which I have been able to figure out how to fix myself (except a few tricky ones). Found a new one recently that I just cannot figure out. I have set up file sharing on my network between two systems running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), one a desktop and the other a laptop. I Installed the proper packages on both systems, and it seemed to be working properly. However, on the laptop, when I try to mount or access the public-files of the desktop or laptop I receive the following error:

Code:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get File Sharing Over Wlan Working

May 23, 2010

I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File-sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2010

I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
netbios name = oak
security = share

[Code]....

I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - How To Enable Windows File Sharing

Jul 3, 2010

I did a fresh install of Lucid alongside Vista on my laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804. When I went into "Personal File Sharing" under System > Preferences, it said that the necessary packages were not installed. Using the documentation at this link: [URL] I went into a terminal, opened shares-admin, and as promised it told me that I didn't have the right software installed, and allowed me to check both NFS and SMB to install. I did so, installed, and at the end, it said everything was successful.

After exiting the dialog, the window asking me to install NFS/SMB appeared again. I selected to install, it disappeared, and then reappeared. It did this repeatedly, until I decided to close it out. I then went back to the guide, and went to add a new share. But the drop down box would not allow me to choose Windows share, only Unix (NFS). How do I enable Windows File sharing? I have used Ubuntu in the past and have got it to share with Windows computers flawlessly. Now, it appears that this essential (for me) functionality is broken.

Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing Within Home Network?

Jul 28, 2010

For the first time networking my home computers I'm not interested in getting Ubuntu boxes to to talk to Windows and we now have Ubuntu on all machines.

I'm trying to use the "Personal Files Sharing Preferences" but there is a message telling me I require some packages. Most unlike Ubuntu but it doesn't tell me what packages I do need.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

What I would really like to do is have access to sertain directory's on other computers and have full access to read/write within the home directory.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing The Samba File / Directory?

Aug 1, 2010

I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server.
Two users: chris and gretchen
Directory to share: Music
Music resides in chris' home folder.

I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:

Created user accounts for each
Created Samba accounts with passwords for each
Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it
Assigned the family group to the Music folder.
Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.

chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.

Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing On LAN / Password & Quota

Nov 2, 2010

I was wondering if it was possible within Ubuntu to:

a) Make a shared folder to the extent that people can view it but to access/open it requires a password.
b) Set that folder to have a set size (quota) so that people putting files onto the store/folder don't flood my computer with video/music.

I am currently at Loughborough University and am on their LAN as I type.So guys/gals are there any programs on the synaptic that do such a job or does Ubuntu already have an inbuilt way of doing that.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting The File Sharing Working In Gnome 3?

Apr 29, 2011

trying to share a few folders with Windows PCs. Usually I just right click and choose "Sharing Options" from nautilus and choose to share it. This isn't there in gnome 3 via gnome3 ppa for Ubuntu. I've tried installing and adding the folders I wanted using samba configuration tool and gadmin-samba tools. I've also installed just about anything that could potentially have anything to do with file sharing from synaptic including:

samba, nautilus-share, smbclient, windbind

and whole lot of other stuff in hope that I had just been missing stuff. I also booted my laptop which is running 11.04 with Unity and I right clicked and selected "Sharing Options" like the usual way and shared a folder and then installed gadmin-samba and the samba configuration tools and the folder I shared wasn't included there. Meaning it isn't using the same thing? Also the only thing installed when shareing a folder is samba and some libpam-something. Two files! Then shares perfectly! Why is it so difficult to set up a simple share with Gnome 3? No matter what I do I boot into Windows on my laptop and try to connect to my network share the same way I always have and it doesn't work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up File Sharing In A Home Network?

Jan 6, 2010

have a home network with two desktops and I also have a netbook. The netbook and nettop (desktop) both run UNR 9.10 and my other desktop runs Ubuntu 9.10 with all updates in place. So all 3 machines are hooked up to my home network via wireless router (secure and password protect). I want to set up file shares between machines in order to move files between machines and also to have all machines connected to and accessing one shared printer. Fair enough. According to Ubuntu help I click on a folder, then properties then the share tab and click all checkboxes and give the share a name. Then I do likewise on my two other machines. So in theory once every machine has a share setup then you should be able to access via the other machines by simply going into Network, finding the machine, opening it and mounting the shared folder. In some cases I see the other machines but when I click to open them it says "unable to mount location". So now I would like to ask... where should I look to resolve this? The wireless router settings? Some type of network or security settings on each of my machines?

Ubuntu Networking :: WIFI File Sharing With Android Tablet?

Sep 20, 2010

I coach a high school debate team. I would like to take my team paperless... Within the world of debate, any evidence you read is required to be made available for your opponent. Many teams use a third laptop as a viewing laptops. They will make a computer to computer network and make a dropbox on the desktop of the 'viewing' computer.

To save money I would like to be able to use some of these cheap bargain basement netbooks/tablets that are coming out as solely a viewing computer. Most of these cheap machines are running android.So....is it possible to network with an android to share files over wifi?Internet is not an option as it is either banned for use in the round or not available...usually both....

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Sharing Stoped Working?

Dec 1, 2010

I set up a Ubuntu Server for my home network to share among Win XP and Ubuntumachines.Initially everything worked fine with all Win XP machines being able to share files on the server; however, after I installed and setup SSH between my Ubuntu machines and my Ubuntu Server I now cannot share and/or even see my Server directory from Win XP or Ubuntu machines through the Samba.I have tried for 2 days to figure out the problem without success.Did I break something while setting up the SSH? How can I fix Samba?Here's some things I have setup or tried so far:1. Samba users are setup and were working previously.2. Samba share drives were setup and working previously.3. I can see the Server using SSH or SFTP from my Ubuntu machines.4. I have gone over the Samba config file numerous times5. I am administering Samba on the server via the terminal and Webmin

Fedora Networking :: RH Enterprise 5 And - 11 File Sharing

I have two machines on the same network. I want to share files from my Red Hat server to my Fedora 11 box. I want to know what is the easiest, most secure way of doing so. My machines are on a public wire (not an issue really as I don't have sensitive stuff on there), however I'd like to learn how to secure the server, but yet still get access from my Fedora box. Anyone provide me with a guide or help on which protocol (SSH, Samba? NFS) to use?

Fedora Networking :: Can't Get NFS File Sharing Working

Feb 24, 2010

So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)

So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.

Networking :: Personal File Sharing On Fedora 14?

Mar 8, 2011

My wife and I activated the 'Personal File Sharing' on our two Fedora #9 laptops. We can exchange photos and text files via our "public" folders, just fine. Entire setup took less than 20 minutes. We have not been able to get the Fedora #14 version of 'Personal File Sharing' to work using same, online and 'in system', help directions for both the F#9 and F#14. After four eves of looking I have not found any more detailed, install/activate help files anywhere. I can't ask my system manager because that's us. At this point the only thing I can think of is that there may be some part of the F#14 security structure that needs to be addressed and tweaked.
