Samba Windows XP Problem (//Samba is not accessible)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 28, 2004
I'm a newbie to Linux (just installed Fedora 2 a few days ago) so go easy on me.
I have a laptop with Windows XP Home on it, and a PC with Fedora 2 installed on it. They both have network cards and are connected via a crossover cable (the cable definitely works btw). The XP machines name is HAL and its workgroup is HOME, and the Fedora machines name is QUEEG. HAL's IP is 192.168.0.10 and QUEEG's IP is 192.168.0.11, and both machines Subnet Mask are 255.255.255.0
For now I want to share the files between the two machines, and then later I hope to share my laptops wireless internet connection with the Fedora box via the crossover cable.
Samba is installed on my Fedora box, and I have gone through several tutorials on setting it up (e.g. samba netfirms guide). Now when I go to 'My Network Places' on the XP machine I can see my Samba server (its named "Samba 3.0.3-5 (Queeg)"), but when I try to access it I get the following error:
Access linux SAMBA share from windows
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2007
I have an Ubuntu file server with samba installed.
the host name is "jack-server"
I want to access the share "allusers" from my windows box.
I type "\\jack-server\allusers" into the run prompt, and i get the User name and password prompt. However, when I type "Administrator" as the user (mapped to root) and the password, It wont login.
It's as if i dont have the right password, but I know it is correct.
here is my smb.conf
passwd chat debug = yes
name resolve order = wins bcast hosts
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
idmap gid = 15000-20000
add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usermod -G %g %u
logon drive = H:
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passdb backend = tdbsam
How to mount a Linux Samba share on a Windows box
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2011
I need some help mounting a Linux Samba share to a Windows box. The Linux server is RedHat RHEL5, Samba 3.0. I'm testing on a Windows 7 desktop, but the perl script executing the command runs on a Windows 2003 server. I am able to successfully mount the Linux Samba share to my desktop using the net use command and my Actvice Directory domain account with this syntax.
net use x: \\grape\netusetest /user:ABC\cathysmith
But what I need to do is to use a local Linux account that is not defined in Active Directory. I get prompted for the password, but get "Access is denied" using this syntax:
net use x: \\grape\netusetest /user:grape\cathy
I'm not getting anything useful from the smbd log.
My smb.conf file looks like:
comment = NetUse TestDirectory
browseable = yes
public = no
path = /apps/netusetest
valid users = cathysmith,cathy
writable = no
force group = apache
force user = root
[SOLVED] OpenLDAP+Samba for authentication of both linux and windows clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 13, 2010
For a while now I am looking for a good and simple tutorial with clear examples on how to setup OpenLDAP for authentication of client computers. The clients are installed with linux and windows. I know that you need Samba for the windows clients. I am able to make OpenLDAP work, however I am not really sure what is needed for authentication on both client types. There are many tutorials telling me how to setup the server side, but which attributes are a minimum requirement for windows and linux clients to authenticate.
Something else that is pretty hard to find is a tutorial on how to setup the client side. I haven't yet looked into how to configure Samba to use OpenLDAP. So if you know a good tutorial about that too, then the suggestion is welcome as well.
If this sounds like a newbie question, then that's probably right. Anyway, thank you in advance for helping me out.
problem connecting to share linux from windows 7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2013
Hey every one
i am new to Ubuntu, i have an Ubuntu server and many windows 7 laptops, they are all in the same work group, my major problem is not in sharing but in authorization access to the folders i share on Linux.
sharing with samba on webmin ( and also on command line ) worked like charm, but whenever i put an authentication ( like forcing users to log with their username and password things gets lots messy ).
The Linux server tends to refuse access or takes ages to accept it, when i open guest access everything gets alright again
my question is: is there a problem in sharing between window 7 and Ubuntu ???
could any one inform me what should be the preferred server settings on Ubuntu , and if there should be other settings on windows 7 laptops !!!!
any DNS settings ???
any ANYTHING at all !!!!????

Dual Boot Problem Between Linux and Windows 7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 14, 2010
Hello! I have been on these forums a while back ago and I believe I have previously discussed this issue but cannot seem to find a fix to it...
First things first. I am runing a copy of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and I dual boot with Windows 7 x64 version. My computer is a Dell 1555 srs premium sound with a 4GB RAM. If you need to know more specific information such as processors, memory, communications, etc., please, leave a comment and I will give it! =)
Moving on... When I boot up my computer, "Dell" loads like usual. Then, the GRUB loader appears and it loads my backups, Windows 7 boots, and my previous Linux kernels. I almost always select the newest kernel version of Linux.... Then I have the option to log into which OS. I can go into WIndows 7 then. So once Windows 7 boot is complete, I can sign in, do all my stuff I want to on Windows 7, then shut down. But here comes the trouble. Once I boot up my computer again, Dell loads but the GRUB won't. I do not recall the err
Connection timeout errors while accessing files through samba from linux to windows
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 7, 2013
I have installed samba on RHEL linux 6.2 system and trying to access windows folder through samba server from this machine. I have used this command to mount windows folder. I have replaced actual values with dummy values.
mount -t cifs //x.x.x.x/winfolder /linux/folder/ -o username=user,password=password,domain=DOM
I receive this error when I run above command.
mount error(110): Connection timed out
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I can see the Samba server is installed correctly I can see smb service and inetxtd service running.
I think it could be some firewall issue. Please let me know what could be causing this.
Thanks a lot for your help
dvd burning problem with linux not windows unrelated to application or hardware
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 4, 2009
The issue I have is related neither to copy protection nor to the application used to make the .iso file nor to the hardware used to burn the dvds.
The problem has something to do with writing the dvds under linux, particularly Mythbuntu 9.10 or Ubuntu 9.10 (tried both). For example, when I burn a dvd using Mythbuntu 9.10 (or Ubuntu 9.10)) it works perfectly in any computer but won't be recognized in the dvd players attached to my TVs but if I take the same dvd created with linux and copy it in the same machine running windows to the same type of dvd media then the copy will play perfectly.
I'm convinced that there's something messed up with the way in which Linux or Ubuntu writes the dvd. I think this has to do with the operating system as I've even tried the above using the same .exe file of ImgBurn to perform this task either running in windows or with Wine.
Any help would be appreciated.
