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

    hi.

    i'm trying to connect my intrepid box to a windows xp box. (the windows xp box is connected to a 1tb external hard drive hosting music files.)

    the problem: the ubuntu box is in my office and connects to the internet via a sling box to the lynksys wireless router. the wireless router is directly connected to the xp box.

    the xp box cannot find the ubuntu box via the router via the slingbox. "network path not found" is the error message.

    any suggestions?

    thanks,
    kenneth

    doogie - post your smb.conf

    In Terminal...

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Select All.
    Copy.
    Paste here.

    Take a closer look at this.

    Code:
    [MyFiles]
    path = /home/administrator/sambadata
    and this

    Code:
    The error message in XP when attempting to map network drive:
    
    \\192.168.1.101\home administrator\sambadata could not be found
    See the problem? You have "home administrator" in your UNC path when it SHOULD be \home\administrator\sambadata.

    Try that and get back to us.

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

    Don't you have to run the network setup wizard in XP before you can transfer stuff via UNC path at start - run like \\192.168.1.101\sambaserver... etc????

    Pretty sure I had to... Did you run that wizard?

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

    The directions for this tutorial just says to map the a network drive. I already have a network set up with other boxes. Are there additional instructions for setting up Samba on XP Home Edition?

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

    Okay, so I've skimmed over this, plus spent allll day long looking on the interwebz about this issue. I'm finding so much conflicting information, or even moreso... a lack of solid information. So here's my scenario.

    I've got two machines. One running 32 bit Windows Vista SP1 and another running Ubuntu 8.04 (which i've also installed KDE-Desktop on).

    Both computers are a part of "WORKGROUP" workgroup, so i know that differing workgroups isn't the problem. My Vista machine is connected to my netgear router by ethernet, while the ubuntu is connected via wifi to it. Internet is working fine on both machines.

    I am unable to see my linux box on vista no matter what. On my linux box, I can see "GATEWAYPC" when browsing through my smb/workgroup... however, like i see in many people's cases... unable to browse the files. I have changed the settings on my vista machine so that the shared files are open to anybody on my network (anonymous, etc) and yet still unable to do anything. Since my vista machine has a 500 GB HDD on it, my music and videos are on here and would like my vista machine to work as a server, and allow my ubuntu machine to be able to browse the files in the other room and utilize them.

    I've got SWAT working with samba to the point where i can edit things here and there, but it's still becoming a pain because I'm not seeing any solid information for me to change. I've changed a few registries in my vista box from sources online as a work around, but still no changes.

    If anybody needs any more info, please let me know... but i'm getting pretty frustrated. As much as i'd love to just dual boot my vista machine, it'd be way too time consuming and my lady is computer illiterate anyways... and trying to get her to use something other than windows would be like pulling teeth from a croc. Thanks in advanced everyone!


    D~D

    edit: I am now able to access my linux box by going to >> Start >> 192.168.1.3/dystorteddream/ and that does pull up my linux box... even though it is showing as read only, and does not allow me to view all of the folders. smb.conf is showing that read only is off. So I really don't know what's going on. Ubuntu is still having problems browsing the files shared on the vista system.

    mmmm, I've tried the guide, and did it step by step. What goes wrong here?
