I can't seem to connect to it when using windows 7. Both are in the same workgroup (W0RKGR0UP) and I have set DHCP address for the ubuntu box. Is there any other thing that I would still need to edit ? My router address is 192.168.0.1 and the fixed ip for ubuntu box is 192.168.0.103.
I've got a situation where I would normally use NFS, but cannot. So in it's place I need to use a samba share (even though it's linux -> linux). I need it completely open and world writeable as if I had done an rw in an NFS export. I thought I had it as when logged in as a user I can edit delete etc. however the apache user seems to be struggling with creating files.
Here's my smb.conf as it stands. Code: [global] workgroup = WGRP server string = Samba Server Version %v security = user passdb backend = tdbsam unix extensions = no
[sites] comment = Sites Directory path = /var/www/sites public = yes guest ok = no write list = siteusr writeable = yes create mask = 0777 browseable = no security mask = 0777 directory security mask = 0777 note that the drive is mapped as user siteusr
I'm trying to load a HP Proliant w/ Fedora 11 and setting up as a WFS using Samba. However, I'm a bit confused on how to do it. Right now I have 2 36.4GB drives in RAID 1+0 and 4 146.8GB drives in a RAID 5 config. I wanna use the smaller drive for the OS and the bigger drive for the storage. I've managed to load the OS fine, the problem is I can't figure out how to mount the 4 146.8GB drives as a single logical volume and set Samba to use it. Right now all the RAIDs are setup using the built-in Compaq Smart Array utility (or whatever it's called) that's built into the SCSI hardware or BIOS.
I have recently developed the need for having a file server and am interested in setting up my desktop as a Samba File Server. The problem is that I need to be able to access it from outside networks (physically I'm about 10 miles away from my home network),o I need to also set up some sort of DynDNS service so that I can access the server from anywhere.With this, with setting up a DynDNS, setting up Samba, and setting up my machine to be secure enough for these types of actions. (I just want to make sure it is secure enough since it will need to be detectable from the internet.)
So I finally managed to get my Samba file server working () but now I have a question. On the server I have 4 folders, each being used for a certain topic. How would I set the folders as read only but not the contents, so that way remote users can read/write to the folder but can't delete or rename the folder itself? Also, if I restart the Linux box it will cease to show on the Windows Network unless I delete the Samba share and remake.
Im having trouble setting my SAMBA server correctly. I have two Win machines, one with WIN7 and one with XP. I have one Ubuntu machine and Ubuntu Server 10.04. My problem is that I can only acess files from the Win 7 Machine. When I try to map out the shared dirs on my serverI get asked for user and password, when I enter my creditensials it dosent help.. What to do? I used the sample smb.conf file and open for no restrictions..
what the recommended way to set up real-time (or near real-time) folder synchronization among 2+ servers. I looked a rsync but that doesn't sound real-time and it looks like its something that you might put in a cron once an hour.
I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.
For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.
the second drive is mounted on /media/Sifl_80GB and it was formatted as ext4.
My windows machines see the 80GBshare entry but I get the error "network path not found" when I try to open the folder. Does this mount need to be listed in my fstab for this to work correctly? I'm noticing something in the comments of the smb.conf for auto-mounting a cdrom drive when a cdrom drive is accessed by adding a fstab entry, so I'm wondering if this needs to be done with my second drive?
I'm attempting to set up a Samba share on my lab's small server (Ubuntu Server Edition, 10.04). It looked easy enough, but the share that I set up didn't allow anyone to actually put anything on it: no uploading stuff, etc. (You can still upload files via the command line, so I implemented the unix extensions = no fix). The share is writeable and visible, and anyone can access it (according to the Samba GUI). According to the smb.conf:
The other Windows machines in the lab see the new server and its share automatically, although they can't make changes to it, like create a new folder in the share. Most of my lab uses Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6), and a few others use Windows. I can connect to the server using my MacBook either through the terminal or Finder -> Go -> Connect to server -> smb://blah.someplace.edu without problems.
I can do pretty much anything via the command line, but not through the Finder! If I want to create a new folder, it gives me an old-school error message (stupid blue face): "The operation can't be competed because you don't have the necessary permission." If I want to drag-and-drop a file from my desktop to the Share folder, I get a pop-up window (lock + blue face): "Type your password to allow Finder to make changes." If I do, then I get another pop-up: "One or more items can't be copied to "Share" because you don't have permission to read them. Do you want to copy the items you are allowed to read?"
Fairly new to Karmic - wanting to setup some Windows Shares on an external Hard drive. I understand that I need to install Samba to do this but when I try to install it I get the following message:-
pat@CCBC-13112:~$ sudo apt-get install samba Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package samba is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it: samba-common-bin smbclient samba-common E: Package samba has no installation candidate
I have installed winbind, portmap, and samba/smbclient packages on the workstation linux ubuntu , which is intended to be client to samba for /etc/password attached to the server. At boot nothing changed, and the /etc/password is not attached to samba. So my passwords are stil the local of hte client, and not the server. This is my config of the client workstation:
i'm trying to set up samba so that i can connect to the printer in the den since we have wireless access. also, i can see my virtual box on the windows xp home ed desktop, but can't access it.so, how do i go about setting up samba so stuff is visible between my ubuntu machine and my families windows orientated network? i'm having a hard time finding anything on videos too. i'm taking a break from the remastersys stuff so i can get the more important things done, such as connecting my ubuntu machine to my families windows network. i don't know if the printer is wireless or not, but regardless, i can't find it.
First let me say that Lubuntu is a lightweight version of Ubuntu, so there is not much point in loading it up with unnecessary packages. If you just want to share printers on a Linux network, you don't need Samba. And if you just want a way that users can "push" files to others on a network, use Giver (+ Avahi) as this is a better option. Especially as it sorts out file permissions for you.
To enable file sharing on a Lubuntu 10.10 machine, go to Preferences > Synaptic Package Manager and add the following:- * samba * system-config-samba * gvfs-bin * gvfs-backends ...accepting any dependancies, 11 packages in total.
I suggest you re-boot now. As an initial test, go to file manager (pcmanfm) and enter:- smb://localhost You should see the local print$ folder listed.
To access folder shares remotely * open file manager (pcmanfm) * enter the IP address or computer name of the machine you wish to access e.g. smb://192.168.0.99 or smb://print-server
To share a folder:- Go to: Preferences > Samba (enter password when requested) In the Samba Configuration screen:- * File > Add Share * use Browse... to select folder to be shared * Tick "Visible" and (if required} "Writable" * In the "Access" select "Allow access to everyone" Set the Linux permissions:- * locate the folder to share in file manager * right click on the folder and select Properties > Permissions * set the required permissions, e.g. Other: Read & Write (to allow anyone full access)
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.
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 192.168.10.3 with subnet of 255.255.255.0 and gateway of 192.168.0.1 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?
I am currently attempting to setup Samba 3 (installed) for a basic home-network file-sharing server via Ubuntu 10.04. It seems like (based on my extensive googling and research) nobody wants or has a configuration like I do, but surely SOMEBODY knows how to do this.
The following is my goal for a basic setup.
Folder 1 (share is called "Read-Write"):
-Users from Windows 7 can see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as they so desire.
-Users can accomplish all of this from as "guest."
Folder 2 (share is called "Read-Only"):
-I can log in as my user to see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 2 as I so desire.
-People other than me can log in as "guest."
-"Guest" users from Windows 7 can see, read, and execute programs as desired.
Things I have accomplished:
-Directories are browseable via Windows 7
-My user has a password for Samba (assigned via "sudo smbpasswd -a matthew)
Things I have not yet been able to accomplish:
-Configure Folder 2 so that Samba asks for login credentials when someone tries to access it SO THAT I an use my Samba user to log in.
-Configure Folder 2 so that, when I log in as my Samba user, I can see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as I so desire.
-Configure Folder 2 so that Windows 7 users can easily access it as guest to browse, read, and execute files and folders in it.
-Configure Folder 1 so that any Windows 7 user can easily access it as guest to see, read, write, execute, create, or delete any files and folders in Folder 1 as they so desire.
I have a home network with Ubuntu (3 PC) Windows (XP 3, 7 1 vista 1) and Lacie networked drive. I have successfully edited fstab to mount the lacie drive at startup on my main ubuntu PC and it works a treat. My problem is setting up the Unbutu PCs to browse the workgroup. This was working but now (since my last update of Unbutu I think) I get prompted for a password and no matter what I do it does not let me browse.
Now I have read a few things on Samba and do not have the time or ability to become a network engineer. All I want to do is is have on my Ubuntu the same browsing ability that seems to come out of the box in Windows.
I've been trying to set up my printer that I'm sharing through a desktop running Windows 7 and am having trouble getting the authentication details to stay saved, or even work, for that matter.
No matter whether or not I tell the New Printer program to remember my authentication details, it doesn't. If I tell it to prompt me if it needs details, I get no prompt. So, in order for me to print a document, I have to tell it to print, then go into the print queue and authenticate it from there.
1. IIs there a way, either manually or through GUI, to either save my authentication details or just have it prompt me upon printing to save me from going into the print queue?
2. This isn't exactly on-topic, but it came up while I tried to set up the printer. Has anyone else had their SMB URI come up incorrectly with the spaces incorrectly rendered as "20" instead of "%20:?
i'm trying to add windows print drivers to smb for them to be automatically downloaded to the client upon printer installation. I've followed the samba.org Printing documents which have been helpful to some degree. I have an HP printer and i'd like to just upload and register the .inf,.dll.cab files that the manufacture cd comes with for the client to use the .inf file to install the drivers from that location but i keep getting Werr_invalid_PARAM
here is the syntax of what i'm trying to do.
rpcclient -d 4 -U 'username%password' -c 'adddriver "Windows NT x86" "HP_Color_LaserJet_3800:hpbicoin.dll:hpc3800c.inf:hpc3800c.cat:hpc3800c.cab:hpcp3800.cf_6i2arww.cab6i2caww.cab6i2csww.cab' Server

I do know how to set up the traditional Window shares by modifying fstab and mkdir /mnt/share. What I was wondering in this day of laptops, if there was a script that could find and mount Window shares that were hooked into your local network, but only on a temporary bases. Something like what you would do mount a usb connection, such as a camera that you had the drivers for. I do know that networks are more complex, was just interested if something like that was developed yet. Just to let you know that my scripting skills are zero, and my ability to do so less.
Can anyone point me in the direction of setting up shares for windows machines on centos. I have found a few document but never managed to get it up and running correctly. I need to be able to get access to subfolder etc for different users. Is there any way of doing it with some sort of gui?
