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

    Ubuntu server 7.10

    Thanks StormBringer! Your config file and instructions worked Perfect!

    However - for the life of me I cannot find the file smbusers. Following your instructions and using the commands

    "sudo smbpasswd -L -a <username>"
    "sudo smbpasswd -L -e <username>"

    I've granted the appropriate users the ability to map drives via samba ... and they all work great. I just don't know where the user information is being stored. I've searched the entire drive and cannot find file smbusers.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks,
    Terry

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

    Sorry, but there are 51 pages here and I've not read all of them...

    I'm running Hardy. I believe things were working under Gutsy but I couldn't swear to it.

    I have an fstab entry:
    Code:
    //dell/SharedDocs           /mnt/dell_SharedDocs  cifs  auto,credentials=/etc/security/dell_SharedDocs.cifs,rw,file_mode=0666,dir_mode=0777  0  0
    where the contents of the credentials file is:
    Code:
    username=guest
    password=
    Running
    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs -a
    at the terminal works fine. However, the share isn't mounted at boot.

    (I've tried with smbfs and the guest option, too, and it's exactly the same.)

    Now... I've scanned through /etc/init.d and I can't see anything that would actually mount this share! I'm guessing this could be part of the problem...

    Is anyone else testing Hardy and having this problem? Or know the solution?

    Mount share in
    Code:
    /etc/fstab
    not in init.d(which is to run your daemons/services)

    Try this
    Code:
    mount -t smbfs -o username=<name>,password=<passwd> //sambashare /mountpoint
    if it mounts using above then try adding to fstab:
    //Machine name/ukripper /Machine name/ukripper smbfs credentials=/home/ukripper/.smbmount-ukripper,rw

    You came empty handed, that is how you shall leave. Whatever you claim as yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, will be someone else's tomorrow. This false happiness is the true cause of your sorrows!

    Sorry, but if you'd understood my message, you'd have realised I'd already tried what you suggest.

    For who knows what reason, today it's working...

    when i try to access my ubuntu shares from my windows machine (i didnt use the wins setup) windows prompts for the username and password and i have to enter username and password to access it.

    Do you have any OS X tutorials? I cant see my os x machine under xubuntu but, i can see xubuntu on my mac. I was referred to this thread by other users from the Networking & Wireless category.

    Computers Systems on my network:
    1x - Ubuntu Server 7.10
    with Xfce desktop, LAMP Server, OpenSSH Server, PostgreSQL Database, Print Server and SAMBA
    2x - OS X 10.4
    2x - MS XP Home Edition

    Router:
    Netgear

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

    I got the same here..
    Using samba and smb:cif from the OS X i am able to open my share folder in ubuntu (here i have a problem of permission that i have to solve)

    BUT, i try different ways to connect to OS X share folder from ubuntu and i couldn't get it to work, i try many thing like ip adress, i have the mac appearing is my windows workgroup but cannot acces it

    Any help?

    PS side question, is samba going through the wireless router or can someone intrude in the system via ad-hoc ?

    sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop
    sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop
    * Stopping Samba daemons... start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 4910: No such process

    What's this critter???
    If you wanna' help, great. But explain as you go. Otherwise, you're just giving away fish, and not the important stuff - pole, bait, net, etc...

    Still a beginnerd, but not absolute...
