    Re: Can't connect to SAMBA share via Jaunty

    Sorry, I'm restarting after which edit? Adding the client/lanman info? I restarted samba, I'll restart winbind now...

    I did get that error from the "good" computer, the other computer just says "ACCESS_DENIED."

    Re: Can't connect to SAMBA share via Jaunty

    As a check, can you ping a windows machine by name from each of the Linux machines.

    As you are on a mixed network is worth doing below


    Add wins after dns so that the line looks like

    hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns wins mdns4

    As far as I can tell - and this is somewhat a fuzzy guess - the errors that you are getting are around name resolution. This involves, winbind, nsswitch, and /etc/hosts (which should not be used in a proper setup).

    Still thinking - allthough this is a painful process

    Hmm, just "ping hostname?"

    Pinging a windows computer returns packets in about 40ms. My router's DNS settings are for OpenDNS, and the IP returned is an OpenDNS IP:

    Code:
    nixie@dove:~$ ping bateleur
    PING bateleur.wavecable.com (208.67.216.132) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (208.67.216.132): icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=42.9 ms
    64 bytes from hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (208.67.216.132): icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=44.1 ms

    This is incorrect. WINS should be before DNS. Some DNS providers (like OpenDNS) forward unknown DNS queries to a "did you mean" search page. To the system, this counts as a resolved host name. So in this situation, if DNS is queried before WINS then you will get a failure when trying to browse networked systems. This is becoming more and more popular by many ISP's because it's one way of avoiding typo-squatting.

    Re: Can't connect to SAMBA share via Jaunty

    Just noticed the IP of the computer that you pinged
    208.67.216.132 - is that an internal IP?

    Re: Can't connect to SAMBA share via Jaunty

    Ok, so putting wins before dns changes the equation on the "good" laptop - pinging a windows machine on the network pings a network address (192.168.0.x).

    However, it makes no change on the "bad" laptop, pings there to a hostname on the local network still return an OpenDNS IP address even after adding wins.

    I should note that the only WINS server on the network is the Ubuntu Server where I set wins support to be yes in smb.conf.

    Have you checked winbind is running on the 'bad' machine.

    Can you compare the output of the route command between machines.
