Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get 10.04 Computer Connected To Win7 Shares

Oct 3, 2010

I'm trying to get my Ubuntu computer to connect my Windows 7 shares. I do have Samba installed and it can "see" my Windows 7 computer...however, I cannot connect to the machine. I think I've heard some issues with the way how Windows 7 deals with networking now and Samba doesn't work with Windows 7 now or something? If possible, I can always use an NFS server and client for my Windows 7 computer.

Networking :: After Upgrading From Win7-32 To WIN7-64 Can't Mount Cifs Shares

Jul 21, 2010

This is the first time I have run into issues mounting windows shares but I really can't figure this out. Can someone put me out of my windows misery please.

First off, last week I rebuilt my work PC fromWIN7 32bit to WIN7 64bit since then I can no longer mount the window share on my ubuntu server:

I recreated my windows share called "Linux" and used the properties, advanced sharing and added everyone, full access and my domain account full access.

If I browse to \ipaddress I can see my share and access it. From a XP machine I can see the share and access it.

From linux I use the same mount point as before, /linux I use the same fstab and it fails

Code:

I try this manually now:

Code:

Next I try to mount it:


Code:

I looked at my firewall rules and they seem ok.

Next test was connecting to my 2nd pc on windows XP no probs mounted first time.

What is wrong with my new Win 7 setup?

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vmware - Finding / Mapping Network Shares In Win7 Guest On 10.10 64 Bit

Jan 23, 2011

finding / mapping network shares on Win 7 guest in vmware. I am running 10.10 64 bit ubuntu and installed vmware workstation 7 (64 bit version). I created and installed win 7 (ultimate) vm. everything is good so far. The issue is I have a second desktop with ubuntu and I have shared 4 drives on that desktop. I want those shared available to the win 7 guest. And even after enabling the shared folders I do not see them.

Note: I have a shared folder on the same machine where I have vmware installed and win7 has assess to that drive.. its just that the shares on network are not available. Note2: i had virtualbox installed and it worked fine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Lucid Connected To An SME Server 7.4 To Automatically Mount Windows Shares?

May 4, 2010

I have beating my brains out trying to get Lucid Lynx connected to an SME Server 7.4 to automatically mount windows shares. The winbind stuff seems to work okay after I installed a restart script in /etc/network/if-up.d (kudos to OsGnuru & bobpaul for that) There is a short wait on network up before winbind can validate but that is not a show stopper. I have looked at (what I think) is the correct log for pam_mount and it seems to be running through to the end process okay. It looks like it is either not reading the pam_mount.conf.xml file or I have not configured it correctly as it just reports "No Volumes to Mount". I have appended the log file, pam_mount auth, password, session & common conf files as well as the pam_mount.conf.xml file for review.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Works In Win7 Butt Not In 10.04 - Even Though Wifi Connected

Aug 12, 2010

Today I got my laptop back after its motherboard was replaced (soundcard failure) and I am having problems connecting to the internet. Connection to the wifi network is succesful, but Pidgin is not connecting ("SSL Connection Failed") and I can't view any webpages in Firefox. I loaded up Win7 and everything worked fine, connecting to the same wifi network and using the same proxy settings ("No Proxy").

Ubuntu Networking :: Info For Accessing Shares On A Windows 7 Computer?

Dec 29, 2010

I just got my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop to finally be able to access my Windows 7 Professional's shares, and I'd like to share how I got it working. Whenever I would go to Places > Network on Ubuntu, and then double click on my Windows computer (sometimes after finding it in Windows Network > {workgroup name}), it would immediately bring up a box saying "Password required for {computer name}". My Windows password wouldn't work here, but I didn't even want to be asked for a password. In Windows, under Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options > Change advanced sharing settings..., Turn off password protected sharing was already selected.

So, I eventually found out that samba (the program Linux uses to talk with Microsoft's SMB network share protocol) has a bug of sorts. The format of the SMB packets coming from a clean Windows 7 is known by samba. However, if you install Windows Live Sign-In Assistant (which is provided through Microsoft Update) on Windows 7, the packets coming from Windows 7 are modified, and samba can not handle this. A patch has been written for samba, but Ubuntu's repositories (which has samba version 2:3.5.4~dfsg-1ubuntu8.1) does not yet have that patch.

Also, it seems Microsoft has stopped Windows Live Sign-In Assistant from appearing in Programs and Features. It doesn't appear even if you specifically download and install it separately. I did, however, notice that the installer calls itself Windows Live Essentials 2011. So I found that in Programs and Features, and uninstalled it. It asked which components I wanted to uninstall, and I selected all of them. Rebooted Windows, and now I can access the share no problem. I also grabbed the offending packet using Wireshark before and after that uninstall. The packet is indeed different. Specifically, without Windows Live Essentials 2011, there is no mechToken in the packet.

The current version of samba available is 3.5.6. I may try downloading and compiling that later, and see if it deals with the change that Windows Live Essentials 2011 makes OK. Also, it may be possible to get the share working without uninstalling every single Windows Live Essentials 2011 component. You may want to try that if you would like to keep a component.

Fedora Networking :: Run A Script After The Computer Has Been Connected?

I would like to run a script after I got a network connection. The reason is that I'm trying to install Dropbox on my Fedora 12 laptop, but it only works if I start it after I'm connected to the network. So, is it possible to automatically run a script after you've got the connection?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Can't Get The Win7 Boxes To See Shares On It

May 7, 2011

Home network with 3 Win7 boxes and one elderly Fedora 11 box (heloise) which has been running Samba well for several years. I've just built and started configuring a new Fedora 14 box (abelard) to replace heloise, but can't get the Win7 boxes to see shares on it.

Windows Explorer on the Win7 boxes can see abelard, and they can see the two shares I've created on it, but if I double-click on a share I get the "Windows cannot access" dialog.

I've set a Samba password for one user (ralph), the same as that user's login password, and set the "smb password file" entry to point to the resulting .tdb file.

All IP addresses are static (via Static DHCP), everybody can ping everybody, I can ssh from a Win7 box to abelard via Putty, and the network operates cleanly in all other respects. Here's my smb.conf:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2011/05/07 11:25:27
[global]
workgroup = MSHOME

Fedora :: Win7 Can't View Samba Shares In F12?

Apr 26, 2010

I just installed a F12 server at home, replacing a FC9 server that ran samba to share media files. I had no problems connecting to samba on FC9 (the version escapes me, sorry) however Win7 seems to be fighting the F12 samba (v3.4.7) trying to do the same thing. I create a directory share, it shows up in windows explorer, but when I try and open it win7 tells me I dont have rights to it.

I created a printer share via samba, and successfully connected to it from win7 and use it as my default printer, and that works OK. I know win7 uses smb2 as its samba protocol, and that might be some of the problem (or all of it), but I'm not sure. I also have googled and saw that people have had had issues with samba as their domain controller while trying to join win7 into the domain, however I do not use win7 as a pdc at all. The solution for this seems to be registry hacks, but I am not sure they apply to me as I haven't seen anyone correlate it. Tailing the logs, this is what I see when I try and explore the file share from win7:

Code:
[2010/04/26 13:09:56, 1] smbd/notify_inotify.c:421(inotify_watch)
inotify_add_watch returned Permission denied

Now I have edited smb.conf manually in the past but to try anything I've even played with webmin to see all the options I might be missing, still my conf is fairly simple:

[Code]...

I see the movies share in win7, but it doesn't let me in. I tried disabling requiring 128bit encryption for NTLM as one suggestion but that didn't work. Also changing local security policies to send LM & NTLM responses, and that didn't work.

Software :: Access Computer A's Shares As Well As The Third Computer, The Aforementioned Computers Cannot Access Computer B

May 28, 2011

I have three computers in my network, but two will be mentioned. Computer A is a Linux Mint 9/Windows 7 dual-boot, and I have just installed Mandriva Free 2010.2, which I will call Computer B.

Now my main problem is that Computer B, while it can see and access Computer A's shares as well as the third computer, the aforementioned computers cannot access Computer B. The message was: "Unable to mount location/Failed to mount Windows share." Now, the SMB protocol was used because of the third computer and Computer A have Windows OSs installed in them.

What I originally wanted was that I can share Computer B's NTFS partition, namely Documents and Downloads, to the other computers. And I can't do that, because of the error message.

What I can do, however, is use Computer B to view shares from the other two computers (Computer A, as an example). By my experiences in Linux Mint, I understand that I'd have to mount my Windows partitions in order to share them. I don't even know if my NTFS drive in Computer B is mounted, though that is what was described.

Networking :: Can't View List Of Shares In Nautilus But Can Browse Shares Directly?

Dec 11, 2008

I run opensuse 11 at work. I'm trying to see the list of shares on a "server" that is running windows server 2000. If I try smb://server, it doesn't show any shares, but I can browse directly to it such as smb://server/share1. If I use smbclient, it returns the list of shares correctly. I guess I just don't understand why smbclient shows the list of shared folders, but nautilus cannot.

Networking :: Pulled Off - When Click "Print" And Result Comes Out Of A Printer Connected To Some Other Computer On A LAN

Mar 17, 2010

how this is pulled off - when you click "Print" on a computer, and the result comes out of a printer connected to some other computer on a LAN, what goes on? I would like to know this at the deep *hacker* level, and also how to do this in Linux alone, i.e. without Samba or whatever - that is, without Windoze.

Ubuntu :: Getting Model Of Monitors Connected To Computer?

Jul 19, 2010

I am currently developing an small program in Python and at a certain point, I need to do some "stuff" depending on the monitors that are connected to the computer. I have an intel vga card with two outputs. I want to do something if one of the screens connected to the output is a "Dell", another something if one of the monitors is a "Nec" and another something if both monitors are connected.

So the question is: Is there any way to get the vendor/model of the monitors currently connected to the computer? I did a little bit testing. I plugged both screens to my vga card (the Nec to the HDMI output and the Dell to the DVI output), and the gnome-display-properties tool properly detected the model, size, resolution... of both screens connected. I would like to know if I can use a command on bash (or a library in python) to get the same information.

The /var/log/Xorg.0.log also shows properly:
(II) intel(0): EDID vendor "NEC", prod id 26345
(II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:E-EDID segment register" registered at address 0x60.
(II) intel(0): I2C device "HDMIDDC_C:ddc2" registered at address 0xA0.
(II) intel(0): EDID vendor "DEL", prod id 41027

I could always parse that file, but it is not the best solution. I also tried the ddprobe command, but for some reason, it only detects one of the screens (the Dell, connected to a DVI cable). I am currently using Ubuntu 9.04 and Python2.4 (just in case it's relevant).
