Ubuntu Networking :: Samba File Server - Printer Drops

Mar 11, 2010

I have a Samba file server with one windows & one Ubuntu workstation. The Ubuntu workstation is a Samba print server. The problem is that the XP machine cannot access the printer. If I restart Samba on the print server it works again. There may be a pattern but I havn't figured it out yet.

Here's my file:
[global]
workgroup = voodoonet
netbios name = Bob
name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts wins
server string =
map to guest = Bad User
local master = yes
os level = 33
usershare allow guests = Yes
usershare max shares = 100
usershare owner only = False
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
printcap cache time = 750
cups options = raw
load printers = yes
use client driver = yes

[printers]

Ubuntu Networking :: XP Drops Connection To Samba Server

Apr 7, 2010

In order to get my shares working I first have to connect to the windows shares from the Ubuntu machine. Then I can connect to the Samba shares from the windows machine. If I don't continue to use the shares. It'll drop the connection and I have to unmount the windows shares and start the process over. The wireless network still shows as being connected but I get an error on the windows machine if I try to connect. I've Googled this and it appears to be a Windows problem. I know this is a ubuntu forum but thought I'd ask for any info. I believe that this is also what is giving me shared printer issues as well.

Ubuntu :: Connect To Samba Printer And File Server With Lubuntu?

Mar 9, 2011

My university provides instructions for connecting to their printers and network shares in Ubuntu. They work pretty smooth, but I've run into a couple of problems when trying to follow these instructions in Lubuntu:

1. Windows Printer via Samba printer is missing under Add-->Network Printer in the printer utility (system-config-printer 1.2.3, same one as in standard Ubuntu) I'm guessing I need to install some samba related packages that standard Ubuntu includes by default, but which ones?

2. To access network disks in standard Ubuntu, for example your pesonal space, you select Go-->Location in Nautilus and enter an address of the format smb://something.university.domain/resource. How can I access such locations with PCManFM?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Drops Connection When Transferring Large File

Jul 6, 2011

I'm experiencing connection problem when transferring a large file from Windows 7 (Home Premium) to my Ubuntu 11.04. The transfer starts, but after a couple of seconds the connection drops and all the shares are unavailable. I'm also unable to connect to the server over ssh, and the only thing I can do to restore the connection is to reboot the server. The strange part is that this was never a problem a couple of weeks ago, and I've not done anything to the setup on either machines besides installing security updates.

CentOS 5 Server :: Super Slow Windows Printer Properties Dialogue With Samba Printer

Sep 18, 2009

I have a Centos 5.3 server with Samba file shares and a shared Samba printer. I am not running a domain.

I recently changed my windows desktop pc from an XP machine to a vista 64 machine... It has a different user name. Everything went pretty smoothly - and the and the vista machine found the smba printer - and even downloaded the driver from the samba server. he printer works OK - and the file shares are fine.

The only thing which is quite odd - is that the Printer Properties dialogue takes more than 30 seconds to come up - and every action you attempt with the dialogue takes a similar amount of time.

I will include below the essence of my smb.conf:

Ubuntu Networking :: Both NFS And Samba On The File Server?

Apr 29, 2010

I have in my home 3 pc's 2 of them ubuntu, 1 windows/ubuntu. I have a NAS (mybook WD) that I'm going to hack to install a linux OS on it, to take advantage of some benefits. I'll need access from windows networks. I've read there are many benefits of NFS over Samba, with the inconvinient that it cannot be access by windows. Is it a good idea to have both NFS and samba on the file server?

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Samba File Server?

Nov 27, 2010

I'm trying to set up an old computer that was donated to my by an aunt to hold my external hard drives and use it as a file server so i can use them from anywhere within my house. However I can not seem to get the samba server to broadcast/be seen by my ubuntu installation, nor my windows installation.

I've read the manual, to an extent, but I feel as if I am missing something. All I want is to have it to where I can just type in \server and bring up my files to access without having to worry about passwords.

Here is the config file:

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = GrenadingBadger
security = share

Ubuntu Networking :: File Server On 10.04 Machine - Slow Samba

May 22, 2010

I'm trying to set up a fileserver on my 10.04 machine, and access the files from Windows 7 via wifi. I can see everything alright, but the transfer speed to Windows never gets higher than 70KBps. Both computers can access the web at 800+KBps. I've also checked with an OS X machine on the same network, which was also extremely slow, so I'm fairly sure that the problem is on the server's side.

Networking :: Share A File Via Samba On A Ubuntu Server That Is Actually Stored On A FreeNAS Box?

Mar 10, 2011

I'm trying to share a file via Samba on a Ubuntu server that is actually stored on a FreeNAS box. The FreeNAS drives are mounted via NFS and the Samba share contains a symlink to file on the FreeNAS drive.Browsing the Samba share I can see the file and size, but any attempt to read the file fails. It complains about authentication but all credentials across all machines are the same.So, is it possible to share a file this way or is there another way to do this?I know I could create all the profiles on the FreeNAS box but for convenience and ease of maintenance I was hoping to do this via the Ubuntu server

Networking :: Samba Shares On Server - Nagging File / Foldername

Aug 17, 2010

This one has proven to be a real for me. On one of my Samba shares on my server I have a folder of mp3 files of my CDs. The one I am having an issue with is "Clarence Carter/Dr. C.C." (yes, the one with the ULTIMATE party song). The "Dr. C.C." folder name is normal locally, but across Samba it comes out "DMOU3A~H". I can still access the folder this way, but it would be nice to not have Samba mangle the folder name this way. I am using Samba 3.4.2 on an Athlon64 X2 system running Slackware64.

Ubuntu Networking :: Server 9.10 Lan Connection Drops ?

Jan 23, 2010

I got a new low power file server (Atom 330 with ion), but didn't enjoy it since.

I installed Ubuntu server 9.10 64bit.

I randomly experience connection drops. As I'm installing and testing, there are lots of ssh windows open, I transfer much data using scp from my laptop to the server (all connected to wired lan).

Connection drops are as follows: ssh windows terminate with "connection reset by peer", but not always all the ssh windows terminate. For example, I edited a mediatomb config using nano, that stayed open even with scp and all other ssh windows cut.

I also have apache2 installed because I'm running urd (a usenet download tool). It seems that when I start the deamon, connection drops. So I killed apache2 to try out but that didn't solve the problem.

I left ping run all the time, and the server is pinging back all the time, which is really strange as I thought that a connection drop means the whole network interface going down.

When this drop occurs, I have to wait 2 minutes until I can ssh back into the server.

I also installed mediatomb, but it isn't really fun to stream a video to my ps3 as it always hangs after 5 to 10 minutes.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Printer Share With XP?

Nov 16, 2010

My desktop is now dual boot, Xubuntu 10.10 has been added to WinXP. The attached parallel printer works fine with either OS. When running XP I can share the printer with my two XP laptops without problem. I cannot share it when the desktop is running Xubuntu. Neither laptop can see the printer. However, if I open the desktop Samba config application, change any parameter, retype in the original parameter, both laptops can see and connect to the shared printer - until I reboot the desktop

Ubuntu Networking :: Server Drops Connection Momentarily

Dec 30, 2010

I have a server running Ubuntu 10.04. I use it for mysql as well as samba file sharing across 10 computers. It had been working out great. I only ever needed to restart after I would install updates and to sort of thing. Starting this week however, it has started kicking all the computers off of both mysql and the samba shares every few minutes. It is very strange. The mysql connection can be restored just by closing the database and reopening it. The file shares are only a problem if you try to access them though a program other than your file browser (e.g. save a file you are working on in word to the server). The server never shuts down and all services can be reconnected immediately. It is very strange. I do believe that the server installed some automatic updates at the beginning of this week when this all started happening. I am not sure if one of the updates is causing the server to do this or not.

Server :: Unable To Add Samba 3.5.5 Shared Printer To Windows

Sep 30, 2010

I am sitting with a slight problem sharing some HP network printers (JetDirect) with my windows machines. I have cups 1.4.4 configured on my Debian PDC with samba 3.5.5. The printers in question, is configured in cups and is working perfectly, but for some reason when I try to add the printers from Win7 or Win Vista I get the following error:

"Connect to Printer Windows cannot connect to the printer Operation failed with error 0x00000006"

I had a look around and it seems that the above error code is tied in with incorrect drivers, but the strange thing is that if I create a new local port on the win machines and specify the shared printers they work. The problem then is that cups does not identify the jobs correctly. The job will be named something like "smbprn.00000264 Remote Downlevel Document" instead of the actual document name. One of the reasons for using cups is to be able to monitor printer usage so this option is a temporary solution in my mind. Can the print$ share be causing it although it is empty and no drivers has been uploaded? Neither the samba nor cups logs give me something concrete to work with (hopefully someone else can spot the problem).

Extract from samba log:

[2010/09/30 09:21:01.734938, 2] lib/access.c:406(check_access)
Allowed connection from (192.168.1.20)

Server :: Samba Shared Printer Prints Garbage

Jul 28, 2009

Just recently got a few printers connected to the network at my shop and I've managed to get them connected in with samba for the linux clients. Whenever I try to print from one of the clients, the printer will click on and whiz away, but only prints on the first page stuff that looks like this:

Code:
%!PS-Adobe-3.0
%%BoundingBox: 38 24 574 768
%%Title: Enscript Outpu
%%For: User N

It seems to me that the printer isn't processing the postscript data properly (or I'm just not sending it in the right format) but I'm at a loss as to how to go about fixing it.

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Configure Samba (Shared Printer)

Aug 20, 2009

How to configure samba, cups, whatever else is necessary to turn centOS into a print server that provides the print driver to any client adding a printer shared from the server? For example, I have a Xerox Phaser 6125n and I was able to configure my server to share the printer for clients on the network, but I still have to have the driver available on each client that uses the printer. I want to be able to put the driver on the server and provide it automatically to any client who installs the printer.

Also, this is not as important but rather just an annoyance, I am having an issue with samba that I can't figure out. I have user shares set up on the server but the first time any user accesses their personal share they need to provide their password. How can I set up user mapping between linux and windows accounts so that authentication is automatic? I've done this in the past with Fedora Core 2, but that was a long time ago and the same doesn't work on centOS.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Shared Printer Not Visible?

Nov 14, 2010

I am trying to access a shared printer from one Ubuntu PC to another.

On the Server PC, I have the printer working, I have set it to shared, and I have set the server setting to Publish shared printers. I can see and use the printer fine from a windows PC.

On my Ubuntu Client PC, I have samba installed, including smbclient, and all other samba components I can think of. I can see other computers on my home workgroup (Windows and Ubuntu fine). I can also add a printer connected to my windows PC. However I cannot find the printer connected to the other ubuntu PC.

I see the instruction in the Samba guide saying

"Now enter your Ubuntu Samba Print Server (set up as above) IP address in the box on the left titled "smb://"."

However I do not have fixed ip addresses, so what am I supposed to enter in the box. If I enter nothing I can browse the network and can see the host computer, but the printer is not displayed. I can also see the printer connected to the windows PC. How do I 'see' the Ubuntu printer?

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Samsung Printer Over Samba?

Jul 27, 2011

I have a Samsung CLX 3175 connected via CUPS to a Ubuntu box running 11.04. After installing the Samsung Unified Printer Driver as described in this post [URL] the printer works perfectly under Linux, I even got network scanning to work under Windows via TwainSane.

The big problem is network printing from Windows over Samba, though (although I thought that this should be easier to set up than scanning..). Even after hours of trying, I could not get it to print a single page spooled from my Windows computer.the print jobs do show up in CUPS as finished, but do not actually get processed. Could this be a rights-related thing? Depending of one setting in smb.conf (namely, "cups options = raw"), the printer even makes some noise and warms up when I spool a new job -- but it does not print.

My setup is the following:

- CUPS in the current version with Samsung Driver
- Samba 3.5.8
- Windows XP and 7 clients

On that note, can I also load the drivers on my Samba server? Drivers for different Windows flavours and also Mac OSX drivers.

Networking :: Can't Print From Windows 7 - Samba Printer Share

Aug 30, 2010

I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.

Quote:

Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:

[Windows 2000 and higher]
ps5ui.dll
pscript.hlp
pscript.ntf
pscript5.dll

However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :

%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.

Networking :: Using Samba For Connecting To Vista Shared Printer

May 24, 2009

I'm trying to set up a Samba printer in Debian linux. The printer is being shared by a computer running windows vista. Some of the information I've got in the process. Sharing seems to be working, the printer seems to be detected and authenticating (I've tried invalid values and the utility I'm using to set things up says it cannot verify when I use invalid values, but with things as they are it claims everything checks out).

When I go into CUPS it says it detects the printer and everything is working. However, printing a test page causes the job to be immediately complete and nothing happens. It seems that the job is getting lost somewhere in the process. Could it be a firewall issue? I feel like the right ports must be unblocked since I can query the computer and verify the printer, etc. I have a laptop with vista which I installed a printer on and was able to print to that computer just fine. So it doesn't seem to be a Vista thing.
