Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Samba Server With Xubuntu?

Nov 14, 2010

I am trying to connect to my samba server with xubuntu, so far with no luck.

I am trying to use fusesmb and have been following these instructions:


as well as these:


and these


the top ones say to use Applications - System - shared folders to setup smb client. Xubuntu maverick doesn't seem to have that menu point. So I copied the smb.conf from my desktop machine. libsmbclient is installed.

fuse as such seems to run since teh folder that i designated as mount point (~/Network) changes owner to root when i run fusesmb Network. But apart from that nothing happens.

Networking :: Connect A Distro So A Samba Server?

Jul 22, 2010

i just installed zenwalk on another computer in my house (experimenting with zencafe as well) and i also installed the source code of samba directly from the website (i saw that the smbclient command wasn't there when i first installed zenwalk) i have a samba server that has ubuntu as its operating system and i would like to connect my zenwalk system to the shares so i can access them from that computer

i heard that smbclient is the way to go when you do something like this so i tried it a few times and nothing worked ps i am using webmin to configure samba on my ubuntu platform

Networking :: Windows 7 Users Can't Connect To Samba Server After Dhcp Config

Jun 27, 2011

I have an ubuntu 11,04 samba domain server, I want to also configure this machine to work as a dhcp server, however this have give me some issues with te windows 7 workstations, my guest is that it have something to do with the iptables because those station do join the samba domain went both server and workstation are conected to a router.

This is the script I use at boot


/sbin/iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables --table nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth2 -j MASQUERADE


I haven't test it with windows xp station but I have use the same code in the past with no problems, and since this is my first time joining windows 7 station i belive there must be some other port that need fowarding.

Server :: Cannot Connect To Samba On Ubuntu 11.04

May 25, 2011

I have migrated a client's server from Ubuntu 8.04 to 11.04 (they wanted that instead of debian 6 or ubuntu server, despite my best efforts)

The only service still hanging in the balance is samba. It refuses any connections to it and I can not figure out why.

Here is my conf file: (i noticed the interface line is commented out - eth0 is what the machine uses, it was commented out on the old machine and worked though)

workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
wins support = no
; wins server = w.x.y.z

Server :: Can Only Connect To Tmp Samba Share

Jan 9, 2010

I've setup a samba server on a centos 5 machine and am trying to connect to it via a windows 7. The problem I'm encountering is that the only share I am able to connect to is the tmp share. It doesn't matter if it is a protected share or not, I always get a "network path could not be found error" when trying to open the share from windows.

Server :: Cannot Connect To Samba Share

Jun 17, 2010

Fairly new Linux user, running Fedora 12, attempting to set up a simple Samba share to share files with a Windows box. I've gotten to the point where I can connect from the Windows box, and see a home directory and the directory I'm trying to share. The home directory is accessible and works as expected, but when I try to access the other directory I get "The network path could not be found."

Server :: Connect Samba And BartsPE (DOS)?

Sep 29, 2010

I set up a Samba server to authenticate 3 users: ladmin, lead, and volunteer. From both a Linux and Windows XP machine I confirmed all 3 can log in and have appropriate read/write access to the server. In Linux I used smb://host/ and was able to log in. In Windows I used the \host method to similarly browse the share. It seems both Windows and Linux machines have no problem connecting. But I also use a BartsPE (DOS) based CD to connect to the server and it keeps telling me that the password for volunteer (the account I configured to connect to the server) is invalid.

I checked the configuration file the password I'm using is correct. I'm guessing that the problem has to either do with the fact the passwords are encrypted, or that I'm missing some option in my smb.conf file. To create the lead and volunteer accounts I used webmin. I first created nologin Linux user accounts and then converted them to samba accounts using webmin. After doing this I was able to log in from Linux and Windows boxes without problem... the sticking point is this DOS connection. Here's my config file (with some modifications):

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 Networking :: Connect Samba Through SSH Tunnel?

Nov 13, 2010

I have a server running Ubuntu Server 10.04 that is a VirtualBox/Samba/SSH server. I have port forwarding set up for ports 22 and 3389 (SSH and RDP) and I want to access the Samba share without opening any other ports. I can connect to it from my internal network, but I want to be able to access it from school. My best guess would be to tunnel the Samba port through SSH, but I don't know how. I will be connecting to it from Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba - Connect With One Hostname But Not Another

Jan 27, 2011

Here is what I am trying to do. I set up a Samba server on Ubuntu 10.10, which seems to be working (sort of).

I set it up using Webmin, which has always worked for me before.

I set up two shares, both of which are read/write and are allowing any hosts. And are set up using the default samba configuration that is provided by Webmin.

For privacy reasons I won't disclose the domains, but I will call them test.abc.com and xyz.com

I set up /media/mount as a share called [mount_a] and I also set up /media/mount_b as [mount_b]

The server's host name in my internal network is mount-box

I originally mapped it to a sub-domain of my domain abc.com via DNS, so that test.abc.com resolves to the IP address of my router; which has all the necesarry port forwarding set up.

In windows explorer in the remote location I tested it by using \test.abc.compoonani_a, this works fine and after a password prompt I can access my files. However, I do not want to use this domain name for this server, so I registered a new domain name and again via DNS mapped domain xyz.com to the IP address of my router.

Since setting up the new hostname, I cannot connect to it via Windows to access the samba share. It just won't work. When I try to connect the password prompt appears and I put in my credentials, when I submit it the window re-appears and it has appended the servername xyz.com before the username, so it reads \xyz.com<myusername>, but won't let me connect.

If I try again with the previous hostname test.abc.com, it works fine.

What am I doing wrong that it would let me connect with one hostname, and not another.

Fedora :: Connect To The Samba Server Using Aspire Login?

Dec 28, 2009

I'm trying out Samba for the first time, the main directory is called "workplease", and I have 2 users, "keith" and "aspire". I set the permission on "workplease" to aspire by doing "chown aspire:aspire workplease". Then on my windows7 machine I can connect to the samba server using aspire login, see my "aspire" folder and the "workplease" folder, I can create txt files, folders ...ect

But I would like the user account "keith" to be able to read/write to the same "workplease" folder. I added both users to the group "networkg" by doing

"usermod -a -G networkg aspire"
"usermod -a -G networkg keith"

So my question is how can I make the folder "workplease" have permissions to let any group members of "networkg" read/write/execute anything they put in that folder, or sub folders? Im getting rid of my Windows Home Server , and trying to use samba to do the file sharing for my buddy and I.

edit: Seems doing "chmod 774 -R workplease" changes the permissions on all the files/subfolders, to give owner and group full access only, but is there a way anytime someone creates a txt file, or copies over an mp3 for example, it auto-maticly has 774 permission?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba Connect Only Works With IP Address

I have a problem with Samba. I've already configured my SMB.conf file, but I can't connect to my Windows shares by their host name. for example: if I try to connect to GDEA73-PC-1 share = netshare, server connection fails. if I try to connect to then share = netshare, it works. How do I fix this? When I run findsmb, I am on the GDEA73 NETWORK workgroup as I configured, but my local PC is the only one on it...

Ubuntu Networking :: Can No Longer Connect To WHS Samba Share

Jun 1, 2011

I'm running 10.10 on a pretty fresh install with a brand new system I built especially for Ubuntu.For some reason, I'm beginning to have trouble with accessing my Samba shares from this computer. I have a Windows Home Server also running on my network and I have to be able to access the files on it.At first Nautilus showed "SERVER" in the folder tree when I clicked on "Network" and everything was working great. A couple of days ago my WHS "SERVER" suddenly no longer showed up in Nautilus and I had to mount the WHS server manually (via "Connect to Server...").

Now, today, even that doesn't work. When I try to mount manually I get the error "Failed to Retrieve Share List from Server". I can now no longer access the WHS from Ubuntu at all.Why has my ability to access the Samba shares on my WHS deteriorated over time to the point where I can't access them at all?? Any ideas?I have other systems on this network (Mac and Windows) and none of the others have any problems at all with the WHS. Re-booting WHS and router has no effect. I've changed nothing in my set-up. Is this update related?

Fedora Networking :: Can't Even Get Samba To Connect

May 20, 2009

I recently have just started using linux and downloaded Fedora 10 and I'm trying to figure out how to fileshare and print share with my windows vista machine.I edited the registry file on my Vista machine HKEY_ LOCAL_ MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetContro lLsaLMCompatibilityLevel and changed the level from 3 to 1.I've also gone through a lot of tutorials on editing the smb.conf file and set my workgroup name, netbios, and changed permissions on my linux machine (a Lenovo netbook) etc but thats about as far as I can get. This may sound like a dumb question but I can't even get samba to connect on my linux machine so how do I do that?

I was wondering if any of you guys can provide a solution as to how to connect or direct me to a good howto for setting up and using Samba seeing how I'm a noob.I've been on Samba.org already and I'm more confused than ever.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Can't Connect To Internet After Setting Static IP For Samba

May 17, 2010

I recently used this process to connect my Samba network to be able to access and allow Windows XP machines to access my computer on my office network.

For various reasons, all the XP computers on the network are set to fixed (do we say static?) IP addresses with manual DNS. Hence I realised during the Samba setup that I had to set a static IP on my Ubuntu machine similar to my Windows static IP's (ie 192.168.10.?) in order to be able to see the Windows share PC's properly.

Once I set my Ubuntu machine to static IP of with subnet of and gateway of then I was able to access and be accessed by PC's on the network. However I couldn't access the internet after this. I input the DNS server in the edit connections as you can see per the attachment. All these settings (except the IP address obviously) were all now exactly the same as the PC machines, and I thought I'd now be able to access the windows network, as well as have access to the internet, however, even though my wired network is connected there is still no internet access.

I'm using the GUI under network connections to make all these changes if that is important. I can't understand why this doesn't work?

General :: Connect And Access Files Remotely To Samba Server Over Internet

May 31, 2010

I have a server at home running as a file server and DHCP connected to a switch with a wireless AP in there as-well. with this setup I can access the files and do some configurations via SSH on the actual server anytime I'm able to get the wireless signal, now lately I felt the need to be able to do the same but this time over the internet. I've read somewhere already that I'm gonna need a router with port forwarding and NAT, then know the IP address of the server but my problem is once you start talking about routers then you need broadband connection which is something I don't have. Getting a router is not much of a problem but without ADSL like connection I guess its useless, what do I need to do?
