anyone have a simple samba xp setup they want to share?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 4, 2006
i have a fc 5 box and a xp box. they are not friends, but i need them to be.
i can ping the server name of the fc 5 box, i can even view the pages in my browser .. so the network is good. i cannot, however, browse to my var/www/html directory. i have tried every combo of security = share, = user, etc etc i can think of over the last 3 days - but no luck.
maybe i just need to start from the beginning? does anyone have a smb.conf file that allows any box on the network to get into the apache web dir listed above?
if someone could suggest a nice list of 1, 2, 3 and BAM fixed that'd be great!
[SOLVED] A writable share directory in samba XP Linux environment
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2010
I setup a connection between a Linux server and a windows XP client to share a common folder that located in the server that can be written by XP client user. So far the client can view files inside the folder but it can't edit them.
The following is the configuration of the folder (I only paste this part since the other part is too long) inside /etc/samba/smb.conf:
Shorewall, Samba, XP, Internet Sharing MDK10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 13, 2004
I'm hoping i'm not the only person having issues with all of this! Here is the situation:
I am running dual boot MDK10/XP the other computers have XP, when i am in XP everything runs, and runs well. Yesterday, i had Samba working, i also had internet connection sharing working, but not at the same time, for some weird reason, nut now, i can ping the other machine, i can view the web page set up on it through IIS (but not in a borwser for some strange reason, it wans me to download it... retarted!), however, the other machine cannot see anything of mine, no samba shares, no web server set up (which worked yesterday), and it will occasionally ping.
It will also sometimes, see my web server, and i will sometimes see the other machines samba shares.....
If it helps - i have disabled Shorewall, as it was stopping the other computer from pinging me. I have also stopped it from booting at startup. If anyone can send me somewhere so i can figure out how the hell to share the internet
Cant access samba shares in Ubuntu 10.04 from Windows (XP or Vista)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2010
So I setup the newest Ubuntu on my old desktop on a 30g HD and have 2 200G HDs with a ntfs file system on those two. I got SSH and FTP configured, then went on to setup Samba.
I have it (seemingly) set up well. /dev/sb1 gets mounted on /data1 /dev/sc1 gets mounted on /data2
I want anyone connected to my router to be able to see this machine and be able to read and write to both shares.
I configured WINS on my laptop to point to the linux box. and i've seen the pc in question (TECH-PC) in "My Network Places" on both of our laptops.
Long story short, I try to connect to my network share and it says i don't have permission and i need to contact my network admin. This computer is the only one with Linux installed, the rest are windows-OS.
Let me know if you need more info, pretty stumped here, have searched, read, scrapped my install and started from scratch, maybe i need to sleep on it
Samba, Ubuntu 12.04 share with Windows XP, Vista & 8
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 17, 2013
I recently switched my Ubuntu OS from server 10 to desktop 12. Previously when I setup Samba I was able to see Windows from Ubuntu and Ubuntu from Windows. Now it seems that I can only see Windows shared folders from Ubuntu and when I attempt to access Ubuntu folders from Windows I get an error that reads, "\\(SambaServerShare) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin...The network path was not found". I found some help in a previous internet search. From the LinuxQuestions.org site I found an older tutorial. I've got lots to learn and didn't know if there was an updated Samaba tutorial for Ubuntu 12+ and Windows (including 7 & 8), or if someone might know what I've overlooked by my error message. Thanks in advance, -Matt
I recently posted this and realize I should add the tutorial I found that has helped get my this far.
Unfortunately, I'm missing somethin
XP > SAMBA Poor Performance (again)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 16, 2003
Judging by the number of times this issue appears across the internet, I figure I am not alone:
The speed of transferring/ writing from an XP pc to the SAMBA machine is excruciantingly slow. Around 7 minutes to transfer a 50M test file.
Data transfer the other way, ie reading from the SAMBA pc is fine.
I think at this point I have exhausted all the practical information I have been able to find on the Web. The suggested registry hacks that have been suggested have had no effect. And the very expensive & recommended book on SAMBA I have doesn't even touch on performance hassles/ troubleshooting
I have to assume the hardware is OK as I have replaced everything TWICE - essentially 100mbps NICS over a switch. There are three WinXP machines and one LINUX (Samba) PC.
The Linux PC was connecting to the dial up and then sharing the connection from there, using IP masq. with Guidedog. I thought maybe this had something to do with it so I have now moved the ICS to a window
Samba , PDC: windows xp unable to join the domain
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2010
Hello Guys I'm a newbie here and obviously this is my first post. I've been configuring a PDC using samba I used this tutorial https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/server.../samba-dc.html as reference. It seems all went well during the installation and configuration not until when I try to join a windows machine to the domain.
Scenario: When the authentication dialog box prompts the username and password of the domain administrator. I supply root as username and its corresponding password. Then I will prompt an error "The user name could not be found. But, I have noticed that when I supply a wrong password of root the it will prompt "Login failure: unknown user name or bad password. It seems that the windows machine was able to recognize the account somehow.
Any help would be appreciated.
transparent ssh tunnelig for samba on XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2009
Hi. Im looking on alternatives to access remotely to samba. I need some type of encryption for obvious security reasons. However, Im trying to find a "transparent" way of doing it, where by transparent, I mean I just want the user to access a drive without the necessity of manually opening an ssh client.
All ive read so far uses putty for this purpose...Isnt there any other ssh client that allows automatic login and port redirection???
Samba server used as a PDC with XP and Windows 7 clients
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 25, 2010
Hi everyone I am having difficulties setting up Samba to act as a PDC.
First I work at a very large company that has their own DNS servers. I do not have any control over the DNS servers.
I need a Samba server to act as a PDC so that I can put several Windows XP SP3 and several Windows 7 clients on the domain.
I really don't know much about lmhosts files and other things like that.
Here is my smb.conf.
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:
