Ubuntu Networking :: Multiple User Names / Passwords To Access Same Shared Directory?
Mar 18, 2010
I have an ubuntu server set up in which i would like my shared media directory to be accessable with multiple usernames / passwords because I use my admisistrator username and password for samba as well, but I do not want to give out that password to all clients in my house. And, I would like to have write permissions but keep other users to read only. Is this possible or do i need to just make one separate username / password for samba sharing?
I wonder if it is possible to have two passwords for one user account in 9.10. I have a long login password (5 words about 45 characters with spaces caps). I would like to set a shorter password for Authentication, sudo, etc. While retaining the original for logging in.In short:Have long password to login to computer.Have short password for everything after login.
Attempting to set up a Samba network from my SuSE 11.2 desktop to a windows laptop. Using YaST, a Samba server has been created, and allow users to share has been clicked. Identity is not a domain controller. no trusted domains have been set, and no LDAP settings have been set.
Right now, each computer can see the other over the network. When clicking on the network from windows, a window pops up requesting a user and password.
Konqueror sees both computers under smb://. It also has a window that pops up requesting user name and password. Where do I set up these user names and pass words?
I am having a problem with some users who get locked out after more than 3 failed attempts at login. This is exactly what I want to see - they will eventually remember those stronger passwords (maybe?) - but how do I re-enable their access? I haven't tried this on a live box but I can easily recreate the situation via vnc to the server in question and I assume the result would be the same. I like the policy that leads to this but I do need to let them back in - eventually. Where is the blacklist kept and how do I edit/reset it?
I'm planning to centralize users and passwords and also create controls for user access to some equipment, for example, Linux Servers, Switches, routers and firewalls. In case of failure of the link between the ACS and AD or equipment to the ACS, this device would use local username and password.
At the moment, my AD structure is a Microsoft, Cisco ACS servers and Linux Standalone. I wish that both linuxs servers and network equipment were authorized by Cisco ACS on the accounts that are in Microsoft AD.
The configuration of the Cisco ACS to use the AD is done and no problems, the network equipment is OK too, but am having difficulties configuring the server for this solution.
I am trying to setup 2 individual FTP users. They should both have access to the same directory. They both need to be able to read/write into the directory. But, I want them not to be able to write to each other's files (e.g. delete, remove, rename, etc.).
So let's say the shared directory is: /home/ftp/shared/
UserA needs read/write access to /home/ftp/shared/. UserA should only have write access to his own files. UserB also needs read/write access to /home/ftp/shared/. UserB should only have write access to his own files.
It would be a unix box of sorts, but that is the only restriction. I could use whatever software. I am currently thinking pure-ftpd or vsftp but I am open to all ideas.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to figure out yet how to share specific directories only, so I set up my Samba server to share users' home directories (which is not a security issue here since the only possible client is my other machine). My user's home directory contains a symlinked directory on another hard drive partition, which I had to explicitly share to be able to access it from the other machine. This setup has been working for months now, but for a reason that escapes me at the moment it stopped working today, presumably after samba got updated from 3.4.2-18.104.22.168 to 3.4.3-3.2.1.
The error message on the client (Windows XP/SP3) for this one above mentioned directory, and for this directory alone, is "Access denied"; I can access all other directories fine.
I am planning to build a server in future. That will be a computer with GNU. It will be a router and file server. It will get the VPN-Internet and share it with all the PCs connected to LAN. There will be Samba for file sharing. And I'm thinking that if I just share some directory on that server with Samba, it will be possible to get access to that dir from VPN. So it's not very safe to do that. Is it possible to prevent access to Samba dir from VPN connection?
I am doing samba file sharing. I got struct in problem relating reading passwords. I have to read password whatever user enter from web interface and process it. And through that password and username the user must log on from windows system. I have to write appropriate shell script for this. this is all i am doing for sharing files through samba.
Is it possible to have one static IP address with a NAT network forwarding each domain name to certain internal/DMZ IP addresses? I know you can do it by port but if both websites are on port 80 can you forward to the corresponding server on the dmz.I ask this because I noticed the website braemere.com.au had to be typed into a web browser and entering the IP which is 22.214.171.124 did not take me to the website.
I'm developing an application in which one user must run java software that I'm compiling as another user. I wanted to give user A permission to see the bin direcory of my workspace, which is in the home directory of user B. I was wondering how can this be done? I gave the bin direcotry full read/execute premissions, but since it's in my home directory user A can't navigate to it.
I know there are a few ways I could get around the problem but they arn't very elegant. I was wondering if there is a simple method for giving a user access to a specific directory without giving access to all the parent directories. I tried symbolic link but user A still can't access it, and a hard link to a directory isn't allowed in Linux. I don't feel like making a hard link to every single file in the bin directory, and I'm not sure that would work anyways, since every recompile overwrites them.
I'm using Ubuntu x64 10.04 edition. How can I set only one particular directory (and it's contents) to be accessible to a user while make everything else inaccessible for him? I already added the user by using adduser command.
After adding a second ubuntu variant to this machine I wanted to share the home directories so I had easy access to the same files regardless. so I read up on modifying home directories and put in the correct location and then rebooted. On boot-up the system warned me that it could not access the "shared" home directory and after a few more errors and warnings ended up at a blank screen with a mouse pointer!. All I can do is access a term window (ctrl-alt f4). So what I need is to know is where the user properties are stored so I can go and edit those from term rather than the usual way!
i want to allow some friends to ssh/sftp/scp into my system but i only want them to have access to my external hard drive (/media/externalHD/), and i dont want them to be able to delete or add anything, only download.i have found instructions on how to limit a user to his/her home directory and thought about just creating a user with the home directory /media/externalHD but idk if this will work and im afraid i might make a mistake and delete 800gb of 'files'
I have a file server on my network. It is accessed mainly by linux machines throught NFS, but sometimes I need to access it from windows, and I managed to get Samba up and running with only one share with no password, which is what I want.My users have their "private" folders which are just chmodded 700, and under NFS it works fine, but on samba I get, of course, access denied.How can I configure samba so that it asks a password to access those directory? They can become separate shares, and have their own username and passwords (not the ones in /etc/passwd in the server), I don't care.
I need to share some files from my Ubuntu 10.10 box to others on my home network so I created a shared folder, right-clicked it and chose "Sharing Options", chose "Share This Folder" and then I was told that additional software is needed to enable sharing. I agreed and software was downloaded and installed. But when I clicked "Create Share" button and told Nautilus to automatically add permissions for others to access my folder, I was slapped with an error message saying "Failed to execute child process "testparm" (no such file or directory). So how to proceed and get sharing working again? I installed Samba afterwards via Synaptic and assigned the folder for sharing, but I don't see the special "arrows-both-ways" sign for this folder.
I configured FTP server on Fedora 7.0 . I create different users with different password. I also create seprate directory for each FTP user. All are working . When I use filezilla for connecting that FTP site I can access all the directory on that server.
Now I want to configure that no any FTP user can access other FTP users directory or any other directory in server machine . What I do for this .
I am running Ubuntu 9.04, and wish to share a folder to be accessed without logging in via Windows Vista. If I set up the share through the nautilus right-click menu and enable "Guest Account", the share is inaccessible. The folder shows up, but it fails to mount. Vista says that it can see the computer, but not the shared folder.
The folder is
The only way I can get it to work is if I change the permissions of the folder /home/william to allow Others to access files.
When I run "ls -al somedir*" (I use the "ll" shortcut, actually), Linux not only list files that match, but also the contents of directories whose name also happens to match.Is there a way to limit "ls" so that it will only show names (files and directories) and ignore the contents of the directories?
2 of us have been googling all morning trying to find out how we can restrict ftp logins to their own home directories only but nothing we've found so far has worked. We've tweaked sshd_config so that they default to their home directory but they are able to navigate up/across/down to everything. This is a "straight-out-of-the-box" debian 5.0.5 Netinst. Just a basic system with Apache/MySql/PHP/SSH and no desktop.
I need to give a user write access to /var/www and its subdirectories. The current directory permissions are as follows:rwx r-x r-x root root
I added the user to the root group but that didn't seem to help.I read I could chmod -R to change the access to write for the www directory and subdirectories but I don't want to change things and mess up the website. How can I give the user access to write to the www directory and subdirectories without messing anything up? Would changing the www directory group owner to his group cause an issue anywhere?
I am using Mandriva 8 as my local server, i want to configure sftp sever by which particular user can access particular directory of our local server by using ftp client, can anyone tell me how can i do it?
