As you can (maybe) see, my entire /home folder is shared. For various reasons, I'd prefer it if only say my music and videos were shared, how do I do that? I've looked around the web and seen some other people's samba.conf files but mine looks totally different and I don't want to lose the functionality I have by messing around with it.
How do I get it to play movies? It needs all kinds of codecs apparently. Is there a good source for these?I'm running Ubuntu on another machine. How do I connect to THAT?I was able to use samba in Ubuntu to connect to my windows network. Will that work to connect Fedora and Ubuntu?I get this when I try to use sudo in terminal.is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.How do I fix that and how can I log in as root? It won't accept my password even though I know it's right.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.10. I installed Samba and went Administration > Samba. Added a folder [Videos] to share (this folder is on an ext partition). I then went to the folder [Videos] Right+Click > Sharing Options. I selected 'Share this folder', I put in a name and comment, checked Allow others to create and delete files in this folder and checked Guest Access.
When I view this shared folder [Videos] from my Windows PC I can access it with no problems but when I try drill down into sub folders I get a permissions error. [Attached a screenshot of the error]. If I share each folder separately then I can access them but obviously I'd like to share a folder and all it's contents.
The problem is it won't. I have an Ubuntu (11.04) computer cabled to a Belkin wireless router. The Brother printer is usb connected to the Ubuntu box - there is no problem printing directly. However, I need to print from a separate wireless connected Win7 box to the printer on the Ubuntu box and this does not work.
The Win7 can see all other Win computers on the network, but not the Ubuntu. Answers at my level gratefully received (eg: it took me two weeks, many hours and 3 re-installs to get dvds to play on Ubuntu 10). Current printer sharing information on the internet is either hopelessly above my head or outdated.
I want to share home directories from two different machines so that I can log on to both using the same account.
One idea was to host the home directory on a server and mount it to a local directory. I don't think this will work though, because I'm pretty sure the directory wont be mounted until the logon session starts and I'm guessing it wont without the appropriate home directory.
So the question becomes, what tells the OS where the home directory is in the first place. Yes it's in a default place but that path as to be stored in some config file somewhere right?
But another problem is... If the server goes down, I'll have to make sure I can log on via root at the logon screen/get into a terminal/use LiveCD to get access.
It wouldn't be too much of a problem to create an account on each machine, all my media will be on the server anyway. But if I create an account on one, it would be nice if it was automatically added to the other. And it would be great for keeping settings if I want to do a compete wipe if I'm upgrading the file-system or something. I suppose I could just do a backup like everyone else..
I have several linux laptops and a desktop-server running Ubuntu Lucid. I also have Android(tm) and iPhone(tm) devices. All of these connect to my at-home LAN using wireless or wired ethernet through my home-LAN router+gateway and on through the cable modem. In addition, printers are network capable and deployed on the same at-home LAN. All of that works.
Now I want these various and several computers to share files and services (web, print, media) with each other and interact with each other on this same at-home LAN. Can someone point me to a HOWTO or similar application notes that discuss what I need to do? Since all of the at-home LAN devices use DHCP and get dynamic IP addresses, any /etc/hosts files that I create stop working when leases renew. I can configure "fixed IP address" settings, but then wifi roaming is a royal pain in the anatomy -- at least the ways I know how to do this.
I can use the router+gateway to give a specific IP address to each hardware (MAC) address, but then when folks visit it is irksome to setup so that we might give or get the odd file or they might print the odd document. I vaguely remember that there was a way to generate dynamic "local network" host names or similar attached to dynamic "local network" IP addresses all under the control of DHCP-server and supporting utilities. I'm dashed if I can find anything about that other than really antique details. Once folks stop laughing at what I'm certain is a totally noob question, I hope that there is a solid HOWTO that just works out there and that some kind soul will tell me where to find it. I apologize in advance if this question has been asked and answered in the past. One must know enough to know what to search for and get meaningful results. ~~~0;-/
Ever since I had a hard drive that had an unexpected mechanical failure 2 years ago (& had to pay $1400 to have the drive pulled apart in a vacuum & copied), I've been understandably paranoid about ensuring I keep multiple up-to-date copies of my hard drive.Currently, I'm running 3 computers- The TV Computer, my Wife's Computer & my Main Computer. A second hard drive in the Main Computer & an external hard drive both act solely as backups for my Home folder. The TV Computer & my Wife's Computer also keep an identical Home Folder to my Main.I have ssh installed on all computer's & have made bookmarks via the Places Menu's 'Connect to Server', so obviously it's very easy for me to exchange files between computer's...
My problem is this; Every time I save/download/change a file, I have to copy it to 4 other hard drive's. It's kind of annoying.Can anyone suggest some ways for me to save some time with this? It's a wired network with static ip's. All 3 computers are pretty much turned on 24/7.I'm open to middle-of-the-night scheduled type of thing or whatever.
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?
I'm having issues setting up file sharing between two Linux machines. I've tried the forum cookie cutter answer of "right click folder, sharing options, share, allow others to write and edit, allow guest accounts", but I simply cannot get my two Ubuntu 10.10 machines to see each others shared files. I HAVE been able to download and use the program "Personal File Sharing", and with it I CAN share the "Shared" folder between both machines. I'd prefer to learn the correct way to link these two boxes up though, and be able to share more than 1 directory. Am I missing any programs to complete this link? Do I need to use Samba? I've tinkered with it, and I can get both computers to see a workgroup name I set up, but cannot get them to view each other in it.
I have a shared NTFS partition ("shared") that I use for data for both Windows and Ubuntu. How can I mount the music folder on shared to $Home/Music, and the Videos folder on shared to $Home/Videos? I want to mount the different folders on the partition to different folders in home.
we connected the new hard disk in the folder /home /newhdd it has alot of files and we gave access to the folder /home via NFS When we attach a folder on the remote computer is on a remote computer folder newhdd empty, while the other folders in the directory /home full like on NFS servers.
I might as well start off by saying that I have the Linux-based Linksys WRT54GL router running the Tomato firmware. I've come up with an idea that I'm not sure is possible. Specifically, setting a router up to ban not by the MAC address of the network card, but by the operating system the machine itself is running.
This way someone could have, say, a laptop dual-booting Windows and Linux and would be unable to access the internal network if they are in Windows. However, if they reboot into Linux (or practically any other OS) they would be able to access the local network safely without the chance of spreading worms and whatever else garbage across the internal network. Similarly, other devices like Xbox 360s, Wiis, etc. would be unaffected since they don't run Windows. [Yes, 360 probably runs some highly modified NT kernel, but almost nothing else is similar to a Windows PC and the whole system is highly locked down by Microsoft, so I'd say it could be an exception.]
I was thinking of specifically banning Windows XP and lower (honestly as f***ed up as I've seen Vista and 7 get, I would consider banning those too...). The idea is to allow, well... everything that isn't Windows (except possibly Win7) to connect wirelessly to the local network.
Unfortunately, I cannot do anything like this just yet, and I'm in the planning stages, trying to figure out if it is even possible. There are unfortunately two computers in the house that aren't mine (one running Windows XP and another Windows 7... go figure, they came with it and either my sister refuses to use anything else or my mom's computer's wireless is a massive PITA to get to work in anything *besides* Windows). My guess is that this is either not possible or would be extremely hard to pull off. What do you guys think?
On the other hand, it would probably be possible to connect two routers to the incoming cable connection, giving them both different settings (SSIDs, WPA passwords, etc.) and only giving Windows users access to the outer router, but it'd be cool to be able to accomplish something like this with one router through its settings.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 desktop. I set up my main user- admin and loaded the folders of files I would be working on and the relevant additional programs. Now, I would like to set up a second user so that someone else can use the computer with access to many of my files and folders, but not all, which would defeat having a second user. I have set sharing preferences for all of my folders. I have giving most rights to my second user. Yet the second user cannot even see ANY of my folders when they sign-in.
I have 3 PC's in my household and I wanted to know if I can share folders with them lively. For example, I have LAMP server set up on all three, would it be possible for me to work on one PC then work on another and everything would automatically be shared?
I attempted to share my ~/Videos folder using the Folder Sharing dialog when right-clicking a folder in Nautilus. It started to install but failed partially spitting out some error that I didn't bother to read/write down. It asked me to restart which I did. But now when reattempting to share the folder, I get given the following message: 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot create tmp file /var/lib/samba/usershares/:tmp0BRWpm
I've looked around for a thread for this particular error, but I can't find anything specific to the "cannot create tmp file" issue. I'm assuming it's some folder permission issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling samba from the Ubuntu Software Center.
Current situation: two drives, Ubuntu 10.4 64bit installed and running on one drive, other drive blank and formatted for NTFS. What I want: When I download of save anything I want it to be stored automatically on the NTFS drive with no encryption and have the 'Places' folders point to the corresponding folders on that drive. Why: simple, I'm planing to dual boot Ubuntu and windows 7, and the NTFS folder will be the 'My Documents' Drive, this is why it's formatted NTFS. There will be over 100GB on files I'll need both OS's to have access too and I would like it to be automatic to save duplication. Also, if I need to, I want to be able to take that documents drive from the Ubuntu PC and be able to recover the info with an inferior windows OS... because that's what I have lying round in an emergency.
I want to use samba for file sharing like on a Windows home network. Actually they are all Linux machines but nfs is too complicated. On my host machine I installed samba and system-config-samba. I created a new share for /home, check marked writable and visible and put access to everybody. For preferences-->server settings--> security the "authentication mode" is set to user, encrypt passwords is no, and guest account is no guest account. Under preferences-->samba users I added myself as a user with the same windows user name as my Linux user name and the same password.
My client is a virtualbox fedora (used for testing purposes but actual clients will be real computers on my home network). I entered the address smb://192.168.1.184. When asked for the user name and password I put my regular user name and password since that was what I set in samba users. However, the password dialog keeps coming up and won't let met into my own computer. If I quit it says something like access is denied. How can I get my home network back? I liked this feature when my home computers ran XP but I switched them to Fedora 12.
I can access the folders that I have created in XP. What I would like to know is whether or not it is possible to share or link folders between the two OS. For example, I try to keep my files organized as best I can and had been keeping pictures in my XP "My Pictures" folder, but have to do a bit of directory digging to get to that same folder from Ubuntu.
Win7 x64 host with Virtualbox installed running Ubuntu 32bit guest OS. I have Samba installed and I am sharing a folder to have read access from Win7. The folders I tried to share (here 'folder1-3') have been added in the conf.d in etc/samba/ like this - I used these 3 variants, all showed the same problem:
[folder1] path = /data/mp3 read only = yes guest ok = yes
While I can connect to all of these from Windows and map them in Windows Explorer, I am unable to serve those files using my FTP server that is running on Windows. The folders simply do not show up when I add them as folders to serve in FileZilla. The problem I am assuming is causing this is the fact that FileZilla is running as a different instance and not on an administrator level. I cannot however add any users to the permissions list on the Windows side. The 'security' tab of the mapped folder shows the following Users:
EVERYONE root (Unix user oot) root (Unix group oot)
None of these seem to have rights to 'read' or 'list folders', the only permissions listed are 'special permissions'. Does anyone know how I can assign the group EVERYONE privileges to read and list files and then be able to serve this shared folder through my Windows-run FTP server?
I have a USB drive connected to my Ubuntu laptop. I tried to create a share but cant access it from other Win PCs. I'm getting access denied even though I'm entering my ubuntu username and password. I'm guessing this has something to do with my drive being NTFS
Here is what I want to do: have procmail get my mail from all of the different mail servers, and then put them in my inbox folder (I'm able to do all of this), but also have my emails sorted by domain into subfolders.So for example, procmail downloads my email, puts it into the gmail folder which is a subfolder of my inbox folder.I know how to get all of my email into the inbox folder - but not into a specific subfolder.
I created a shared folder in my network, and then unshared it but it still shows up on Guest computers and people can still access it.How can I stop the share? "Sharing options" is completely greyed out.
I've got a NAS running and I'd like to somehow make some of the folders and files invisible to certain users only. For example, if I 'ls' a directory, I want to see files 'a', 'b', and 'c'. But if another user does 'ls' in the same directory, I only want them to be able to see 'a' listed.I know I can use 'chmod +700' to make certain files not able to be read/written, but the filename would still appear in a 'ls'.I know I can put certain files inside of a '.hidden' file in the folder, but then it would be hiEdit : I'd also like to mention that the users that connect to the NAS could be coming from Windows or Mac operating systems. So hopefully the solution would work for users from those systems also..
- OpenSUSE (Workstation configured to log in using Active Directory Information) - First Windows Server (Domain Controller) - Second Windows Server (Provide shared folders for users to use)
How do I map domain users from second Windows Server (like \windowsserverusers<user>) to a folder (like /home/<domain>/<user>/<user_personal_folder>) in OpenSUSE computer ? It should be via samba right? Trying checking something in /etc/samba/smb.conf but couldn't find anything.
Can anyone shed some light in this? Using Fedora 14-64, new install, 185 Opteron x 2 gig ram, sata hard drives formatted Ext4.However, in my home directory I have a folder for all my digital photos of which I have more than 20,000, and in another folder I have images and clipart of which I have almost 8,000. That is a lot of read only access to a significant number of files in my home directory.
How can I tell Fedora to not update the LAST ACCESS TIME of those files (specifically images) that will never actually be changed other than just being read. I want to leave that feature enabled for the rest of my home directory. I am trying t; improve my disk performance in Nautilus because whenever I access the folders with my images the system literally slows to a crawl and sometimes even the mouse stops working for several minutes until Nautilus has finished having its heart attack.
