Ubuntu Networking :: How Can I Delete Workgroup From Network
Mar 6, 2010
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 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'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 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).
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 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 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'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 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 an existing windows workgroup set up. (for those interested, at the moment we must keep two computers on windows for school reasons...but will change as quickly as the semester is over and run windows in virtual) anyway, the workgroup has an HP F300 printer. our Ubuntu computers can see the network, and access shared files and external hard drives. but, it does not see the printer. we are running 9.04 on one computer, and 9.10 on the other. i know from [url]that if i connect directly, the printer will work. how do i access the printer without connecting directly?
How can i get all these to talk to each other when I get rid of the Windows set up? can someone point me to a guide for resetting things on a Ubuntu network/workgroup?
I have one PC (morpheus) on which I've chosen to share a couple of folders in the home directory. The folders show the "Shared" icon in them and are chmod 777'd. I can access them by going to Dolphin -> Network -> Samba Shares -> Workgroup -> Morpheus -> Foldername ... but *only* on that same computer (Morheus). All my computers are running Kubuntu with KDE 4.5 and attached by ethernet.
If I try and go to Dolphin -> Network -> Samba Shares on *any* other computer, Dolphin just reports "Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be cause by an enabled firewall." I've never set up a firewall on any of these computers. Do I need to open ports on my router just for this? Morpheus is set to DMZ mode on the router so it should accept *any* port request not assigned to another computer already.
I have a feeling that there's just something obvious I don't know, because in all my years of trying to get this to work on and off, I've never managed to find a decent *simple* CLI or GUI based tutorial or figure it out myself. The web just seems full of long threads of people having very specific problems unique to their situation trying to sort them out. I just want to share folders over a lan via KDE.
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'm wanting to permanently delete one particular wireless network. I don't want to merely disable auto-connect, I want it to not even show up in my list of available networks. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to still be able to connect other wireless networks. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04.
I am trying to delete a network I created on my computer (Create a new wireless network). I did so, but it is still there, visible by anyone out there in my neighborhood. I have ubuntu linux 8.04 LTS desktop edition.
Here's what I have working now: one old Dell L933r (Ubuntu 8.04), one old homebuilt (Ubuntu 8.04), one Acer netbook (Ubuntu 9.10), and one HP netbook (Ubuntu 9.10); a Trendnet TEW-631BRP router; the Dell & the homebuilt are wired, and the netbooks are both wireless. The LAN was setup quite awhile ago, when I still had some Windows machines; I have no WIN machines now, and don't plan on any. There are times when I can "see" other machines on the LAN, and there are times when I can't - MSHOME and WORKGROUP are in view. How can I remove the LAN network in place, and start over, creating a LAN that will only be used by Ubuntu machines?
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.

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)

At first I installed debian 5 and I want enter on my workgroup using windows XP PCs, in same time I want use firewall now when I stop firewall I can access on the pcs but when I start iptables and open port for samba such as 137,138,138 and 445 I can't access on any PC on work group this is the output of iptables - L command:
Code: Chain INPUT (policy DROP) target prot opt source destination ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:netbios-ns state NEW ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:netbios-dgm state NEW ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:netbios-ssn state NEW ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:microsoft-ds state NEW
There is a test/development environment here at work with some windows and some CentOS systems connecting over a network share to a CentOS fileserver in the data center. The developers run as root (i know i know, but the environment is completely cut off from the rest of the company and this just worked best) and connect to the fileserver using samba. I tried using nfs but to no avail. Now, a couple of the developers have no issues with permissions at all but a couple of them are not able to delete files or folders in their network share graphically. They can through terminal though.
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'm trying to add a network printer. I went to Admin > printing > New...It started searching for printers, then brought up a "New Printer" box... So I expand Network Printer, and go to "windows printer via SAMBA"When I hit browse, it shows my workgroup, so I expand WORKGROUP, and it shows the PC thats sharing the printer... however, soon as I expand that PC thats sharing the printer, the WHOLE thing closes out Printer configuration, new printer, SMB browser, all of it closes as if i killed the process or something... I can even refresh and try expanding workgroup again and it'll close out
Can I just go in a delete all the files in tmp? Or, do I need to be more careful? I noticed that a lot of flv fragments go in there. I did just delete those because I couldn't see how they could be useful again. What about all the other stuff?
