    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    At first, I dismissed this guide as it was pretty old (first post from 2006). Turns out I shouldn't have. Worked great! The only change:

    Code:
    sudo service smbd stop/start/restart
    instead of
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/samba stop/start/restart


    Thanks!

    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    I see that your howto is a bit dated, but I guess the basics are still valid and that is where I am having trouble. I am running a home network on a Windows 7 PC. This PC is currently connected to an unRAID server where I backup my files from both the PC and the laptop.

    I recently upgraded the laptop from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 and lost my connection to the unRAID server. Your procedures were followed and I tried to set my permissions using 'sudo chmod 0777 /media/samba' The command failed with the following message: chmod: cannot access '/media/samba': No such file or directory.

    Can you help me?

    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    Hello,

    a realy good article. Even if it is old, th configuration functions good.
    But I've a problem with my samba system.
    I use samba on ubuntu 11.10. I connect with a Windows 7 SP1 client to the samba server.I'd installed the registry additions on the Windows client. I can browse the enabled directories. I can create, read, write and copy files to the directories of the samba server.
    So far so good.
    If I try to download a file wih the internet exploerer, and want to save the file directly in an enabled samba directory, the download breaks directly. A zero byte paritional download file was created but the download stopped.
    Can anyone help me, please?

    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    I have samba share setup on my home network. Just recently my share folders started showing up as printers on my windows machine. I am also unable to see the share folders from my laptop. The share folders on located on my desktop which is running Ubuntu 10.10. and my laptop is also running Ubuntu 10.10. The only change that I have made within the past few weeks was to add my printer to my network. The printer is a network printer plugged into my switch. What could be causing this to happen?

    Resollved: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    I just installed the Asus RT-N56U wireless router for my home network and now get (on my Ubuntu computer) the error message:"Unable to mount location" and "Failed to retrieve share list from server". This issue has already been posted here by heathd666 and remains unanswered.

    Previously, I had a Linkyss router with no issues. In taking a look at the IP addresses displayed by the Asus RT-N56U, it appears that they may be out-of-range for the computer running Ubuntu 10.10. I will be looking into how Samba (on the Ubuntu computer) defines the range of allowable IP address.

    Any thoughts?
    Is the range of available IP addresses a plausible reason for this issue?

    OR

    Code:
    sudo restart smbd
    sudo restart nmbd
    Change Restart with stop or start

    I don't know what have happened. Before rebooting my windows 7, I was able to see my server under network. After I rebooted windows, I cannot see my server. I've tried manually searching for it via \\webserver but it doesn't find it. The error I get from windows is:

    Here is a little more info from the above post. My syslog says
    Cannot find my workgroup NIPPLE_NECK on subnet UNICAST_SUBNET.
    I am not sure where to look for this.

    Re: HOWTO: Setup Samba peer-to-peer with Windows

    Hi Everyone,

    I followed the instructions on this How-To and I can now see my Linux Laptop on my Windows laptop when I try to map the new drive. However, once I click on the Linux drive it asks for a username and password. I've tried just about every combination of username and password I think it is asking for but haven't has any luck.
    Any suggestions?

    PS. I have a windows 7 laptop and the linux is running Ubuntu 11.04
