howto change samba password remotely from a windows client?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 21, 2005
I recently configured a samba server to share files for roughly 60 window clients. The samba security is user mood and all clients need to provide a password to access the share. It works fine except inconvinient of change password. I used to run smbpasswd on the server to change password for them but it's tedious job. What if they can alter it themselves in their window's box? The samba-howto says if you configure the server a PDC, the password change can be automatic by specifying scripts in smb.conf. The problem is that another main working service for the company won't work well in a domain environment. I googled but failed to find useful links. Is there any alternatives I can choose?
Any suggestion will be appreciated?

Terminal Server Client to Windows using alt F4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 17, 2011
I am using OpenSuse 11.4 tsclient to connect to a Windows Server box. I want to use Alt+F4 within the Windows session to close an application, but instead, Alt+F4 closes the tsclient session. I want to send all keystrokes to the Windows session.
How do I do that?
ubuntu client can't mount samba share but windows clients can
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 26, 2008
hi forum members
I have a debian box which serves as a file server and the other windows clients in the network (via a router) can mount the shares on it. But my new ubuntu hardy installation on my laptop can't. I can browse the network using nautilus (but not with dolphin or konqueror) but can't mount the shares. So smb://promentedebian/promenteprojects works in nautilus but not anywhere else.
If I use the gui via places/connect to server I can make a bookmark which works in nautilus but not from applications, e.g. to save a file on the network.
I have tried for example
sudo mount //promentedebian/pdhome /mnt/pp -o username=HP,password=xxx
but I get
mount error 111 = Connection refused
other variants of mount and smbmount get the same result.
this is obviously a real drag because I can't e.g use unison to sync my laptop with the network
iSCSI target vs. Samba vs. NFS share for Windows client use
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2010
I'd like to know which one is the fastest transfer / throughput rate across the network for the file sharing ?
I'm trying to create some more datastore for storing the very large backup to disk files.
so I'm now considering between running the following over the network:
Ubuntu Server + Samba
Openfiler + iSCSI target (never try this before).
all of those will be over the gigabit network and the shared network drive will be mainly used by Windows Server 2003
Help: X on CentOS w/Windows CygwinX client
- date: December 24, 2006
Hi, I just built a CentOS box with everything installed. I thought I could just startx and connect... My 1st attempt:
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
at http://wiki.X.Org for help.
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
xinit: unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
So then I found this FAQ http://wiki.x.org/wiki/FAQErrorMessa...4995fac710a6a9 and attempted to startx accordingly:

OpenVPN: problem connecting from a windows client

I have setup openvpn on my fedora server and I can start it up fine and everything. I downloaded the openvpn gui for windows and copied over all of the necessary keys and certs and tried to connect. Well I reached the server but the connection fails after that. Here is the error message I get on the windows site:

problems connecting ubuntu smb client to windows 7 server
- date: October 28, 2010
Hi all, I am trying to connect my ubuntu 10.10 client to my windows 7 file/print server. I can browse to my windows network via places->network. I can see my windows servers. When I double click on them, I am prompted with username, domain, and password. After I enter these, I am continually prompted for my password. I know that I have my username/domain/password correct (I use them from other windows machines to connect.)
I have also tried to connect to a server with the following:
share: Media (I know this exists with the appropriate capitalization)
user name: jordan
domain name: THOMPCO
(prompts for a password later, and I enter my password on the server)
Here is what I get from nmblookup:
:~$ nmblookup -A 192.168.1.5
Looking up status of 192.168.1.5
ANDREA <00> - B <ACTIVE>
THOMPCO <00> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>

Slackware 14.1 Xfce + Remmina TSE Client vs. Windows 2008 Server : three problems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2014
Some time ago, I installed a Slackware TSE client for a company, running Windows 2008 Server. It's a prototype, based on a stripped-down Slackware 14.1 Xfce desktop running Remmina as the only application.
After three weeks of intensive testing, we're facing three problems.
1. When opening a session from the Linux client on the Windows Server, Xfce opens a keyring application asking for a "master" password. This annoys the users. Is there any way to prevent this, so they can only be asked for the Windows session password?
2. In the remote Windows Server session, two important keyboard shortcuts don't work: Alt+Insert and Ctrl+F5. This is a major annoyance, as they are both used all the time in the company's accounting software.
3. Another misfunction in the remote Windows Server session is the fact that the cursor suddenly becomes white-on-white invisible in applications with a white background. For example, in an MS Word or MS Excel document, the cursor is invisibl
