    You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of

    Hi there, I have a problem that many seems to have... I'm trying to access some files via samba from XP to Ubuntu and the "You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of - FOLDER" error appears. I have Ubuntu Lucid installed on a hard drive, half Ubuntu and half Windows XP and other Hard Disc Drives that serve as a -downloaded files- disc, over Ubuntu I can have access over the three partitions (two hard disk) but, when I try to access them via SAMBA on XP I'm only able to access one of the three partitions, the one where Ubuntu is installed on, even tho I actually see the three, but when I try to access the other two the error appears.

    I try to share the media folder to resolve this but the same happens...

    The same happens when I try to access from Ubuntu to the shared folder in XP.

    I think it maybe have something to do with CIF's, but my knowledge is limited in the issue, here is my smb.conf file

    #
    # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
    #
    #
    # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
    # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
    # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which
    # are not shown in this example
    #
    # Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
    # commented-out examples in this file.
    # - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
    # differs from the default Samba behaviour
    # - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
    # behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
    # enough to be mentioned here
    #
    # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
    # "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic
    # errors.
    # A well-established practice is to name the original file
    # "smb.conf.master" and create the "real" config file with
    # testparm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf
    # This minimizes the size of the really used smb.conf file
    # which, according to the Samba Team, impacts performance
    # However, use this with caution if your smb.conf file contains nested
    # "include" statements. See Debian bug #483187 for a case
    # where using a master file is not a good idea.
    #

    #======================= Global Settings =======================

    ## Browsing/Identification ###

    # 'interfaces' option above to use this.

    # not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself. However, this
    # option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.

    You understand samba is a network protocol meaning it is used to share files across a network and not across partitions ?

    If you are running Windows and wish to access files on your Ubuntu partition either make a shared (NTFS) data partition or use fsdriver ro ext2read

    mmm... maybe I expressed my self bad, I dont want to access the files from Windows inside my PC, I want to access those files from a laptop running Windows, connected wireless via router to the PC that have Ubuntu and Windows, the thing is that I'm able, from the laptop that runs Windows to see every folder that I share via SAMBA on Ubuntu, but I cant access them coz I dont have permission, except fpr the folders that are in the Ubuntu partition, those files like the HOME folder for example I can access and copy and modify, is when I try to access the other HDD when I come across the error posted, so... if I'm able to see the partition were Ubuntu is installed I dont think it have something to do with the NTFS or ETX issue. I leave the SAMBA config without any username and password to ovoid this and also disable the firewall on the laptop for the same reason... I'm also able to see, in Ubuntu, the folder that I share in the laptop but, also, I cant access it.

    I will try to help if I can, but honestly your posts are verbose to the point that it is difficult to read and understand the nature of your problem.

    My initial suggestion would be:

    What are the ownership and permissions of the directories you are wanting to use on the server (Ubuntu) ?

    You are right, I should have ask in the spanish forum...

    To summarize, I have a PC with two hard disc drives, one of them is where I keep the downloaded files (lets call it D), the other hard disc is divided into two partitions, one for linux (lets call it L) and one for windows (lets call it W). This PC is connected via router and wireless to a laptop with windows on it. What I want is to stream the files from D to the laptop, and to achieve that I create a network connection via SAMBA to connect the PC to the laptop. It work, but not entirely since, from the laptop I can only access to L and not to D or W. As the files I want to stream are located on D I have to move them to L and then I can watch those files on the laptop, but I’m unable to see the other two hard disc drives. What annoy me is that I can actually see on the laptop the folders shared via SAMBA from Ubuntu but I cannot access them, when I try to do so is then I get the error message. In the laptop I also have a folder shared which I can see in Ubuntu throw the network connection but, also I’m unable to explore it.

    Thanks anyway for your time and consideration.

    Best regards from Valparaíso - Chile

    OK.

    It sounds as if you simply need to define a share.

    You can do this from the graphical interface (desktop) or by editing and configuring smb.conf.

    [Downloads]
    comment = Descargas
    path = /media/Downloads
    writeable = yes
    browseable = yes
    guest ok = yes

    Also check that the user you are connecting with has rwx permissions on /media/Downloads.

    In the future, IMO, it helps to use the Linux syntax

    I want to share /media/Downloads ....

    Rather then I want to share a partition on my second hard drive called "D"

    This because I know how to convert /media/Downloads to a shamba share / fstab entry, etc

    But I have no idea what to do with "D".

    Thanks for the reply, I have already try to share that folder and I got this error "Could not change the permissions of folder "media"" I tryed this by right clicking on the folder and selecting the sharing option...

    If it is a NTFS partition, you need to set the permissions in fstab and re mount it.

    Actually, both of the hard disk drive that I'm unable to access are NTFS partitions, I downloaded the Storage Device Manager and try to set the permissions as you said, but I got lost in the middle... could you please give me some instructions about how to do it? Thanks in advance!
