View Full Version : [ubuntu] Disable samba (Ubuntu Lucid)

November 4th, 2010, 04:18 PM
I'm kind of lost. I need to disable user access to network shares. I've already uninstalled samba, smbclient, samba-common, winbind and even libgnomevfs-extra and nautilus is still able to access the shares! Isn't there an easy way to turn that network functionality in nautilus off?

Bump, please.. Any idea?

You mean network shares of Windows machines, right ?
I think you need firewall rules to prevent access to destination port 445 and 139

I think this needs to be done on the share server's firewall, not on the client.

This might help (not sure though).

Simply enable the default Ubuntu firewall, UFW.

sudo ufw enable

Set it to deny all connections by default.

sudo ufw default deny

Samba should be blocked by default, still you can,

sudo ufw deny samba

You can open any ports you need. Make sure your users don't know your password :)
