Ubuntu Servers :: Disable Copy Paste In Samba Share Folder?
Feb 5, 2011
We have 10.x ubuntu server with XP clients. We have samba share folders at LAN. Is there any possibility that we can disable copy and paste option for some specific folders, while other data folders remain as usual in our shared data?
I've installed Ubuntu Server 7.10 Gutsy and Webmin 1.500 on it. The thing that I want to do is: I want to share a folder an sub folders for windows users ( guest user) I should modify those folders from my ubuntu desktop 9.10 karmic they are all same folders. Is it possible? if yes how can i make it. you can tell from webmin or samba configuration file.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I want to disable the cut, copy, paste options in the Edit menu when my system is connected by rdesktop. I want to make a write/copy protected session in the rdesktop. I have disabled the keybord shortcuts like Ctrl+X ,Ctrl+V, Ctrl+C by disabling their Keysyms in the rdesktop code. Now I need to disable the options in the edit menu.
I just maked an ext4 partition by the help of gparted. Ubuntu is my only OS no dual boot. Using Ubuntu Maverick. The problem is partition must be open as root to do any work else it wont even allow me to open file,create folder,cut copy paste or anything.
i have an old desktop that i have decided to use as a central point for localhost/website files. I have 2 laptops, a ubuntu and vista, and i want them both to be able to see the public_html folder on my desktop, and be able to create/update folders and files.
I have set up the samba sharing and that's working fine, but when i create folders using my laptop, they are not writeable to the desktop or other laptop because my laptop is the creator. Is there a way that I can set it so that whenever folders/files are created from either laptop, they have full permissions?
I'm using ubuntu server 9.10 for a home build NAS. Everything is working great just have one more thing to figure out. I have Samba set up to access my files and I set up a recycle feature so anything deleted will get moved to a Recycled folder. (I learned this the hard way after hitting delete key by accident while browsing the shares in windows. Lost 100 GB of data)
Now it is for the most part working but the permissions on folders isn't getting set right. If I delete a file in a share I can go to Recycle bin folder and delete the file for good. But if I delete a folder I can not access that folder to delete or restore from the Recycle bin folder. I have to chmod the folder before I can do anything with it. Anything I can change to get folders deleted via windows to have the right permissions when it is moved to the Recycle bin folder?
I have a samba server with security user. I have a number of shares inside the share with different users logins. But while accessing the shares from windows, in the login prompt, by default username it takes as the guest. How will I disable the default guest user login ?
In this post I will give a quick solution for a possible problem with sharing a folder in Fedora 15.I had to spend some time for research and frustration so, hopefully this post will save you from both. If you have Samba installed and configured to share certain folders on your Fedora machine for a Windows network but, they can't be accessed then following might solve the problem:
1. Go to Applications, Other and run FIREWALL
a). go to TRUSTED SERVICES and check SAMBA and SAMBA CLIENT that are located in the list of services b). click APPLY c). go to ICMP FILTER and check ECHO REPLY (PONG) and ECHO REQUEST (PING) c). click APPLY
If your Samba is configured correctly, your shared folder should be available on your Windows network.A little hint: if you don't want other users to use passwords for accessing your shared folder, select SHARE as an Authentication Mode in Samba GUI Configuration Tool, Preferences, Server Settings, Security
I'm having some trouble mounting a Samba share on my two Ubuntu machines. The Samba share is setup so that all files are readable and writable by everyone (it's only accessible via the local network). When I create a new folder on the share with either of my Ubuntu machines, the folder becomes non-writable by anyone ie. I can't place anything into the folder. I'm using the following command to mount the share:
I think the problem is with the way I'm mounting the share on my Ubuntu machines. If I go to the share using smb://192.168.1.160 in a file browser, I can create new folders which are readable and writable by everyone. But, if I create the new folder where it's mounted at /mnt/backup, no-one can modify or change it.
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
I would like to share a folder from a Linux Guest with a Windows host (with read and write access if possible) in VirtualBox. I read in these two links: here and here that it's possible to do this using Samba, but I am a little bit lost and need more information on how to proceed.
So far, I managed to set up two network adapters (one NAT and one host-only) and to install Samba on the Linux guest, but I have the following questions now: What do I need to type in samba.conf to share a folder from the Linux guest? (the tutorial provided in one of the links above only explains how to share home directories) Are there any Samba commands that I need to run on the guest to enable sharing? How do I make sure that these folders are only available to the host OS and not on the Internet? Once the Linux guest is setup, how do I access each of the individual shared folders from the Windows host? I read that I need to mount a drive on Windows to do this, but do I use Samba logins, or Linux logins, also do I use localhost? or do I need to set up an IP for this?
I'm working on sharing a user's home folder using the username and password of the user's lLnux account. I noticed that home folder sharing is quite easy as I just need to change the smb.conf file to enable it. However I can't seem to login anyway. It seems that Samba keeps its own records of username and passwords. Is there a way that I can map/sync the Linux users' usernames and passwords automatically to Samba? The end result should be that whenever I add a new user or a user changes his/her Linux login password,Samba automatically changes its password as well.
The scenario like this. I'm working on Ubuntu 10.10. I've enable samba sharing with full guest access enable. In my office I had another server (CentOS 5.5) installed just for me and I've created a Apache VirtualHost which root document pointed to share folder on my comp
This is my fstab setting //my ubuntu computer name/sharing/www /media/www cifs context=system_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0,username=username,password=******,iocharset=utf8,fi le_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
After label the mount folder as httpd_sys_content_t the Apache web server working in correct way (duno much but at least it can index files and excute some php code so) then the troll come in : if some file was created by my ubuntu (personal comp) then the file would be listed in Apache virtualhost correctly.
But if I'm ssh to CentOS server goto /media/www which was mounted to my unbuntu computer. Then type command like $mkdir something Suprising that folder ./something could not be accessed by Apache anymore except I remount by umount and mount it again or "setenforce 0" What is wrong with my system can anyone point me out of this headache
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 on the server, but across Samba it comes out "DMOU3A~H". It's definitely Samba doing it, because I get the same result whether accessing the share from Linux or Windoze. 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.
I setup ubuntu 10.04.1 server on a computer I'm using as a server for my home. I can view the share folder on server from win7 I can read files but cannot right to the share. However from Xubuntu I was able to read and write no problem. So the question is... why can't windows 7 read and right like xubuntu? I have 2 win7 machines and both were denied writing to the share folder... I'm by no means an expert.. I setup the share using ubuntu server guide pdf... not sure if its done correctly maybe someone here knows off hand what kind of permissions would be causing this.
My first post, and I'm an Ubuntu n00b. But I've done a lot of reading and still can't seem to get anywhere with this. First of all. I know that I've set Samba up correctly because I can create a share in /home/documents which is mounted on my primary hard drive /dev/sda1, Windows 7 can access it no problem. But, when I try to set up a Samba share on my second hard drive /dev/sdb1, Windows 7 cannot access it. I've mounted the share in /media/Share The error I get in Window 7 is: " Windows cannot access \HOMESERVERData Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network."
My first thought is I must have the hard drive mounted or formatted incorrectly, but I can't find anything on this forum to tell me otherwise. I feel like I need to restart the process of this Samba set up. Can someone please guide me through: reformatting sdb1, mounting sdb1, setting up my smb.conf, fstab, and any other config files required to use my second hard drive as a Samba share?
First off I'm running a headless Ubuntu server 10.10 box.I have a single folder on a ntfs drive that I wish to copy somewhere else on the same HD. I'd like this to automatically happen about once a week or so. It would be even better if it would tarball the copy also..but this isn't a 100% necessary.
Something like "XFOLDER" would be copied to "/backup/XFOLDER1.tar" then next time "/backup/XFOLDER2.tar" and so on.
Today I was moving 25,000 files from my projects folder from a windows box to the linux box when I noticed it crapped out about 60% of the way done check the server console saw a crash report all over the screen so I hot the power button and rebooted server is back up no file loss so no problem but I thought I would report a problem with SAMBA and copying vast numbers of files is at issue after the restarting the server, samba still did not come up so I restated it and it is back up fine.
I have been having off and on issues with my samba file shares. I am sharing a NTFS formated hard drive where the mount point is in my home directory, as well as a printer connected via USB. I am to the point where printing works (using it as an ipp print share, samba is configured for it, but I don't know if it works or not), and I can access the shared folder from Windows, but I can't access the shared folder from any Ubuntu machine. I get the error:
I have a Windows 2k8 server acting as my domain controller. My goal is to have my Ubuntu 9.10 Server box share some folders via Samba, which should be authenticated via the PDC. So far, it seems to be mostly working. The Ubuntu machine has joined the domain, and is browse-able to domain users. The only problem at this point, is that the shares are not writable.
Code: [global] workgroup = smatech netbios name = smalinux001 security = domain idmap uid = 15000-20000 idmap gid = 15000-20000 winbind enum users = yes winbind enum groups = yes winbind use default domain = yes password server = 10.10.10.2 domain master = no local master = yes [www] path = /var/www writable=yes
