Why do I have to manually assign IPs in place of having the router do it automatically? When all my systems were win98 that was okay! Some times I can see my win98 machine but not open the files from any ubuntu machine. I'm quite lost for something that was really simple on win98. The more I read the more I try and I think I need to do a clean all and start over from zero. Any ideas? Ian.
    Under the [global] section, add this option
    Code:
    lanman auth = yes

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

    Hello, great guide, easy to follow.

    I've been trying to connect my vista laptop to my Ubuntu PC for ages. And the result has always been... failure. Sadly it's no different this time. I have no idea where to proceed from here. If anyone has any idea, please let me know.

    It appears to be stuck on the Windows end if i'm interpreting this right.

    INFO:
    -It is possible to ping both PC's from oneanother.
    -The users and passwords on both boxes are different..
    -Naturally, i added and enabled both users using smbpasswd.
    -Since I get my IP through DHCP, wins = no.
    -The error Windows provides, when mapping the device is: "The Network Path was not found!"
    -The path i'm trying to map is \\<ubuntu-IP>\MyFiles

    -My smb.conf: (excluding the comments)

    Code:
    [global]
        ; General server settings
        netbios name = spyder
        server string =
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        announce version = 5.0
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        security = user
        null passwords = true
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
    
        wins support = no
    
        printing = CUPS
        printcap name = CUPS
    
        syslog = 1
        syslog only = yes

    [print$]
        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = root
        create mask = 0664
        directory mask = 0775
    
    [printers]

        printable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = no

        read only = no

        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0755
        force user = fyrzen
        force group = fyrzen
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi, Stormbringer.

    In your 1st post you mentioned that you planned to create a guide on HOWTO: Setup Samba as an PDC with additional services.


    Is this guide available to view yet?

    Fyrzen,

    Is your vista machine in WORKGROUP? IME, the default windows workgroup is MSHOME.

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

    Hello
    Great guide thanks

    Got everything working very quickly with no immediate problems

    Do have a few issues though,

    When i was mapping the network drive, i cant seem to map it to my hostname\file
    it only seems to work with ip-address\file

    And i seem to get alot of large lag/delay spikes when i open "My Computer" folder or when i try save a file using a program like Eclipse (php/java editing program) onto the samba share... Even browsing the mapped network drive causes large delays sometimes

    My linux box hostname is the same as the hostname i entered into the smb.conf

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    The default workgroup name for Windows Vista is WORKGROUP, unless you upgraded to Vista from XP, in which case the default workgroup name is the same MSHOME as with any NT based Windows.

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

    Fyrzen_, try this:
    Code:
    sudo chmod -R 777 /home/samba
    Backup your current smb.conf:
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf-old2
    Replace it with this:
    Code:
    [global]
        ; General server settings
        netbios name = spyder
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
        security = user
    
        printing = CUPS
        printcap name = CUPS
    
        syslog = 1
        syslog only = yes
    
    [MyFiles]
        path = /home/samba/
        browseable = yes
        read only = no
        guest ok = no
        force user = fyrzen

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

    dmizer, thanks for the help.

    I'm still getting an error on Vista:
    The specified network name is no longer available.
    On the Windows side I have disabled File and Printer Sharing, which is said to conflict with accessing another Samba fileserver(wether it is on or not does not seem to effect the error message). I have also disabled NTLMv2 authentication, which Vista uses by default, but 2.x versions of Samba do not support and use old NTLM.
