Ubuntu Networking :: File Sharing - Access From Win7
Feb 21, 2010
I have two computers in my local network one with Ubentu Karmic 64 and one with Win7 64. The problem is in file sharing. I would like to be able to have access from one computers to another in both ways. But now I have only access from ubuntu to windows shares. On win machine I'm able to view ubuntu shared folders and printers but not able to browse them (or use printers from windows). I tried to change samba configuration, but my knowledge is to poor to solve this problem
I use before Ubuntu and win xp in different 2 desktops, they have no samba related problem. But this time I cannot access from ubuntu to windows 7 or reverse way both. Installed Samba, configure it, searching web lot and nothing is working. My windows 7 is Home Premium edition. Btw, the error shows "Failed to mount windows share" about ubuntu to w7 and from w7 to ubuntu the error is "find no network path"...both machine is pinging each other.
I have a wired lan at home with 2 XP boxes connecting to a router to a DSL modem. I want to network my laptop, running only fedora os, for file sharing, printing and internet access. I will be using the laptop probably exclusively for creating/maintaining a Drupal-based (LAMP) e-commerce site to replace our old one for our small family business.
I have a laptop with Easy Peasy / Intrepid Ibex connecting to internet through wifi (firewalled VPN), a PC with Windows 7, and a crossed ethernet cable to connect them. How can I get Internet on the PC? I tried to connect them but I can't even ping each other!
Im a long time Ubuntu user (since 5.04), but networks were never my speciality, I have a desktop running 10.10, connected to the internet trough a US robotics modem (connection eth1), and i want to share its network with my laptop running win7, over a cat5 cable (connection eth0), but the problem is I dont seem to understand what i am doing wrong, what the missing steps required, or in which end is the problem (either ubuntu or windows side).
From what I could grasp was needed googling about the subject, i already set the eth0 connection to share with other computers (in network manager edit connections auto eth0 ipv4 configuration set to share with other computers). Also using the cli set eth0 for static ip using :
Code: sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 Now the question is what i am missing? or is everything needed already done and i just have to properly configure the win7 side (which i already checked several times)?
Here is my ifconfig output:
Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet Endereo de HW 00:01:29:a6:55:fe inet end.: 10.42.43.1 Bcast:10.42.43.255 Masc:255.255.255.0 endereo inet6: fe80::201:29ff:fea6:55fe/64 Escopo:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Mtrica:1
I've set up a laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 32bit and shared specific folders on my Win7 PC. Everything should work okay as they both can see each other, but when I try on Ubuntu to access the Win7 shared folder it asks me for username and password. In Win7 I'm always logged in as Administrator with no password set and Ubuntu won't let me connect to it leaving the password blank. It just keeps asking for my username/password over and over again without any kind of error message. It doesn't come up with 'access denied' or anything, it just keeps refreshing the username/password login/connect gui so I can't say which side of the fence the problem is occurring on though I suspect it's on the Ubuntu side.
my main computer hostname is home, and the others are ubuntu and eduardo.In home, I try to configure samba, downloading it with "sudo apt-get install samba" and then downloading at the synaptic manager the samba-common-bin thing.I shared my folders as ROOT in home and I cannot access from ubuntu and eduardo.Then I googled and I found this site: Quote:URL]Well... I follow all steps and I can't access these files.What I need to do to share files between these computers???
However, since installing Lucid I've spent loads of time trying to re-establish the share I had under Karmic whereby my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM was automatically available to my LAN (simple router) connected Win7 PC. After a couple of days effort I've got to the point where I can access the CD or DVD mounted in Ubuntu, from Win7 but I cannot access the files within the CD or DVD (Err Mssg: You Do Not Have Permission To Access......).
I have noticed that the mount point seems to be the name of the disk under Lucid whereas under Karmic it was fixed as something like cdrom1. So if I edit smb.conf I can't specify the mount point as it depends on the disk name. Though to be honest I have no idea if this is anything to do with the problem! To save what little hair I have left I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to have my Ubuntu PC's DVDROM available on my Win7 PC for read & write.
i would like to setup one of my old pcs as a file server and internet gateway; we are living in a large building shared with 40 others. the ubuntu box would be the one connected to the internet via ethernet and sharing connexion via wifi. i haven't started yet - presently, i am doing the ground work and reading before to start i understand sharing the internet is relatively simple and can be done from the GUI
What we would like is slightly like BT Fon or BT Open Zone in the UK: you can hook on a free network but in order to access outside (internet: email, web, ftp, etc) you need to login login would help us monitor fair usage. I imagine something with username and password for each user would do: as we are a few in the same building not everyone is actually paying for the connection and we don't want to end up with rather large excess bills. So the ones who are paying access both files and internet; those who dont just have access to the files on the local server.
Do i need Ubuntu server to set this up? What hardware would be ideal - given we are all far from rich but willing to have a nice setup
It would be great if you could share some knowledge around the topic and eventually provide some tutorial; also any heads-up on the hardware side would be great! (signal booster, etc - there's 3 floors and 3 buildings)
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 installed OpenSUSE 11.4 on my PC. Want to share my files with Win7 system. So far so good, I can access my files on Linux computer from my Windows PC. My problem starts when I want full access to my files, as you see on image it says directory is Public and Writable but still I can't delete or add files to that directory what did I missed ?
Am currently building a new PC and will be using both ubuntu 10.04 and win7. I have 2x 320GB drives and 1x 1TB drive. I plan to use a drive each for the OSs (win7 + nix) and the 1tb for my home partition. My home partition will store my music, videos, docs, Virtual Machines (note file sizes are sometimes bigger than 4GB!). What file system should i use? FAT32 will not work because of the large file size of the virtual machines.
I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static 192.168.2.2) to a router (the router is 192.168.2.1) where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop (192.168.2.3). I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.
Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop (192.168.2.3) is successfully connecting to the router (192.168.2.1) as I can see the router configuration page when I type http://192.168.2.1 into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.
My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway (192.168.2.2) to the router (192.168.2.1), Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.
Code: lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com PING www.l.google.com (188.8.131.52) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms
What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
I have one computer with windows 7 (computername = windowspc) connected through a modem router to a computer running Ubuntu 10.10 (computername = linuxpc). Had Samba setup and working between them.
Decided to check out Fedora 14 (computername = linuxpc). so set up dual boot on the on the Ubuntu box and installed samba. When Fedora is running Win 7 only sees shares for Fedora. If Ubuntu is running win 7 cannot connect to any shares stating a bad file path. I understand that both linux oses use the same ip address and thats probably were Win7 must have problems.
Ran nbtstat r in windows and was able to swap the situation around i.e. win7 sees Ubuntu but not Fedora.
I would like to be able to set it up so that when logged on to either of the linux oses I would be able to see shares from both partitions in Win7. Or if thats not possible, to differentiate them in some way so that Win7 would recognise which os was running and display the shares accordingly.
Have followed swerdna's guide as in the past and my wife from her win7 computer can see and has read write access to all the shares & can print to the shared printer attached to the Opensuse computer etc. However, when I try to access her Win7 shares from my opensuse computer I am presented with a username / password prompt. Here is my smb.conf
have followed swerdna's guide (as mentioned previously) and set 'password protected sharing' to off on the win7 computer.
I have a Win7 laptop with the latest version of VirtualBox installed. It's a dual core proc with ram to spare. So, I installed Slack64-13.1 and it rocks! I'm really impressed that Slack is running at what appears to be native speed, but in virtual machine. Hardware response is normal, WIFI and LAN are both working great for my normal tasks.So, I downloaded a few much needed patches, and new ISO image for one of my old desktop PCs. Now, my problem is I can't connect my USB cdwriter to my virtual slackware or share folders in the Win7 install with the virtual slackware. I read a few of tutorials on the Oracle VBox website, and several of the ones here on LQ, and none of them seem to solve my problems.
I just installed 9.10 and I tried to share specific folders by right clicking and selecting share. Not a problem.
However when I goto a Windows machine I see the share but cannot connect, says incorrect login/ password. I used the same login/ pass for the linux box and I created a new user and I still get the same results. What am I doing wrong?
I want to use the GUI for this please. When I edit the smb.conf I don't see the share.
I have two desktop computers on the same home network and I am unable to share files between the two. Both have access to the network. One is able to file and printer share using SAMBA and a windows 7 laptop. The other machine is unable to either do file sharing via Samba or SSL file sharing between the two Ubuntu machines.
I have tried to set up file sharing using ssh, samba with no luck. I now have it set up using NFS the only thing is it is just one way and I need it both ways. I was wondering if I installed the same packages on the other pc if I could make this work both ways.
The command I used on the first pc was: sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap And on the other pc the command was: sudo apt-get install nfs-common portmap Or is there a better way?
How would I set up a LAN network at home between my computer that has Linux and someone else's computer that has Windows? and how would we share files and folders? It's easy if we both are using windows, so now I'm trying to figure this out in ubuntu.
I have a small home/office network, which currently consists of a very old mac running osx10.4, a windoze 7 laptop and an ubuntu 10.04/windoze vista laptop, along with a homebrew setup on a wii which understands smb. I'm in the process of setting up an additional ubuntu PC which will, among other things act as a file and web server, mainly for web development and for sharing files, music and videos.
Up until now I've just run everything on SMB, and I will have to set samba up on the new server, but I would prefer to use a different protocol for the ubuntu and mac systems, as SMB doesn't recognise/create file permissions properly and it takes a while sometimes to notice new files in folders it's recently looked in.
I have encountered many problems in Ubuntu, many of which I have been able to figure out how to fix myself (except a few tricky ones). Found a new one recently that I just cannot figure out. I have set up file sharing on my network between two systems running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), one a desktop and the other a laptop. I Installed the proper packages on both systems, and it seemed to be working properly. However, on the laptop, when I try to mount or access the public-files of the desktop or laptop I receive the following error:
Code: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
I have 4 computers/users and we need to put all the files on a central server. The server is running Ubuntu 10.04. What is the best way for these 4 XP users to see the files that will be stored on the server?
Or basically, how will I either share or map the files *from* Ubuntu *to* XP? Also, the users will be reading, writing, creating and deleting files on the server.
I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.
I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba
Code: [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server netbios name = oak security = share
I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?
I did a fresh install of Lucid alongside Vista on my laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804. When I went into "Personal File Sharing" under System > Preferences, it said that the necessary packages were not installed. Using the documentation at this link: [URL] I went into a terminal, opened shares-admin, and as promised it told me that I didn't have the right software installed, and allowed me to check both NFS and SMB to install. I did so, installed, and at the end, it said everything was successful.
After exiting the dialog, the window asking me to install NFS/SMB appeared again. I selected to install, it disappeared, and then reappeared. It did this repeatedly, until I decided to close it out. I then went back to the guide, and went to add a new share. But the drop down box would not allow me to choose Windows share, only Unix (NFS). How do I enable Windows File sharing? I have used Ubuntu in the past and have got it to share with Windows computers flawlessly. Now, it appears that this essential (for me) functionality is broken.
I've been trying for what seems like forever to share a single directory with only two authorized users and I just can't get the permissions right.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop as home file/print server. Two users: chris and gretchen Directory to share: Music Music resides in chris' home folder.
I'd like to have full access for these two users and no access for anyone else. The challenge is that the best I can get for gretchen is read-only. What i've done so far:
Created user accounts for each Created Samba accounts with passwords for each Created a group called "family" and added chris and gretchen to it Assigned the family group to the Music folder. Shared the folder giving read and write access to family group.
chris seems to work ok but when gretchen access it from her snow leopard laptop she can't create a new folder. It should be noted that chris is also the admin account.
