Connect to network share on knoppix 6
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 3, 2009
I've been using knoppix 5.1.1 and when I need to connect to a network share, I usually just open up konquer and type smb:\\10.0.0.1\shared and I put the user/pass and it lets me in and everything is good.
On Knoppix 6, however if I try to just connect to a network share in that fashion, it tells me the "Directory doesn't exist!" and all I can do it hit OK. Anybody know how to get around this? I believe I have the CD version of 6.0.1.
Unable to connect to network share from 13.04, but works fine from 12.04
- date: June 15, 2013
I have an external HDD attached to my Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc. I can connect to it from my 12.04 desktop (after help from 2F4U here).
I've tried the same process to connect to the share from my laptop running 13.04, so from /etc/fstab:
//raspbmc/seagate /media/rpSeagate cifs credentials=/home/ah/.smbcredentials,uid=ah,gid=users,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
Username and password are in the file /home/ah/.smbcredentials. When I try to mount, I get the following error:
:~$ sudo mount -a
mount error(112): Host is down
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I can ping the host (raspbmc) fine from the lappy. When I try access the share through nautilus, I get:
Unable to access location

How to auto mount network share at boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 18, 2011
Ubuntu newb running 11.04. Seems like allot of other newbs are having trouble mounting the network drive at boot in fstab. Tried a bunch of things and cruising the forums but just ended up being a mess. Finally got it going and I though I would share for others and if I need to do it again later.
Also worth noting is that it is not very secure as the file you save the credentials in is in plain text, but I didn't care at this point.
The source I got it from is outdated so the command took tweeking which I will show below.
First you have to install smbfs
sudo apt-get install smbfs
Then create a folder inside of the /media directory to mount the share in:
sudo mkdir /media/server
Create a credentials file in /root so that you can save your password and have it protected by the root account.
sudo gedit /root/.cifscredentials
Add the following lines to the file and just replace the username/psswd with the ones you use to log into the share.
connect: Network is unreachable
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 3, 2008
I'm somewhat of a newbie and am building a set of 4 servers for a clustering project. I've installed RHEL 5. Each server has 2 nics, one for the private and one for the public network connections. I've set static ip's all servers. All 4 servers are connected to a single switch. After all 4 installs, each server can see the other. I've ssh'd to each without any problems. So far, so good.
I added a 5th server to utilize iSCSI for common storage. I went through the same installation steps. The install was successful.
Now here's the rub. All 4 servers of the original servers can see the new sever (dev5). I can ssh, ping, etc. to the new sever from one of the original servers. I can't however, get out to ping any of the original 4 servers from the new one (dev5). I get the "connect: Netowrk is unreachable" message.
The /etc/sysconfig/network file on all the servers looks like this:
files not showing in a network share

I just setup an ubuntu box with boxee and wanted to copy some movie files to it.
Inside the videos folder I created a folder Movies and shared it on my network. I then copied the files to it from my mac book. They copied over ok but I can't find them on the ubuntu machine and I cant see them on my mac book.
I have never seens this before anyone got any clues?
Copy file from Windows Network Share to Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 23, 2010
I have some files on a windows shared folder on my local network. I can't seem to figure out how to copy from it to my local machine through bash. I need to be able to do this through bash.
Location I'm trying to get from:
I'm trying to get it to:
when i run the command:
cp smb://ts2/sbt/file.dbf /home/toddw/datadump
cp: cannot stat `smb://ts2/sbt/file.dbf': No such file or directory
What am I missing here?
Samba. Cannot delete files on network share, yet 777 rights were granted.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2008
I have a Samba setup here. Everybody writes to my desktop as a means of backing up files.
My brother is unable to delete files in his share. He gets "make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."
I granted 777 rights to his folder. Why the hell is it denied? What can I look for? I thought sudo chmod 777 to his folder was all I'd need to do to give him full blown access.
mounting windows network share: "connection timed out"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 5, 2011
I'm trying to mount a windows share network drive (on a university's server) using Ubuntu 10.04. I'd like to make it a permanent mount, so I've added to etc/fstab, but am having problems with the following error:
mount error(110): Connection timed out
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Here's what I've done so far:
My /etc/fstab has:
//files.school.edu/shared /mnt/shared cifs noauto,user,username=username,uid=user,gid=group,mode=700,filemode=600 0 0
I have smbfs installed. I've created mnt/shared. Then from
sudo mount /mnt/shared
I type in my password, wait awhile, then get the "Connection timed out" error message above.
I've solved a couple of problems already to get here, but my ignorance has kept me from getting further. Any ideas? I'll be more than happy to post some output - let me know what I should be looking at. Thanks.
How to network share on Lubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 16, 2010
Having spent several evenings trying to work this out, I thought I'd share this information with you.
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:-
...accepting any dependancies, 11 packages in total.
I suggest you re-boot now.
As an initial test, go to file manager (pcmanfm) and enter:-
You should see the local print$ folder listed.
To access folder shares remotely
* open file manager (pcmanfm)
